Huawei HiSilicon Kirin 985 Processor – What to expect?

HiSilicon Kirin 985 to use TSMC 7nm EUV process with similar kind of architecture what we have seen on Kirin 980. Huawei Mate series should be the first devices to adopt this new chipset as always.

Huawei HiSilicon Kirin 985 processor to be the successor of last year’s Kirin 980 chipset and the launch of new generation SoC is expected to happen in the third quarter of 2019. According to the latest report from Taiwan Media Digitime, Kirin 985 SoC has completed the ASE and FC-PoP technology packages and has successfully entered trial production. It is planned for mass production in the third quarter.

HiSilicon Kirin 985 Processor Expected Features

The Huawei Kirin 985 processor is a small upgraded version of the HiSilicon Kirin 980. The processor uses an enhanced version of the TSMC 7nm EUV process with a built-in 4G baseband to support a new generation of mobile networks via the external Balong 5G baseband. Moreover, it will have a more capable GPU to handle graphics-intensive tasks.

The Kirin 985 SoC process technology and core architecture should not have a significant leap forward. But there will be some changes in functionality, and the core architecture should bring upgraded ARM Cortex-A76 cores and Cortex-A56 power-efficient cores. The new SoC might be focusing on the 5G baseband, which is of great significance for Huawei to seize the 5G market.

As for availability, the first to the device to bring new SoC should be Huawei Mate 30 series. Both Huawei Mate 30 and Mate 30 Pro have been leaked several times this month suggesting us nearby launch. Usually, the company releases its Mate series around September-October month, therefore, we can expect the arrival of new Chip Kirin 985 before the end of this year.

However, we don’t have exact spect but it should follow the Kirin 980, which comes with two ARM Cortex-A75 cores clocked at up to 2.6GHz, two Corte-A55 cores operating at 1.8Ghz, and four additional efficiency cores. The CPU is paired with a deca-core Mali-G76 MP10 graphics chip with having LPDDR4X RAM support. As long as we get further information, we will share it with you. So, stay tuned with us!
