Huawei likely to launch HiSilicon Kirin 990 by the end of this year with integrated 5G Modem

Huawei's HiSilicon Kirin 985 is almost confirmed to make its debut with Huawei Mate 30 series. Additionally, Huawei is planning to launch HiSilicon Kirin 990 with integrated 5G baseband modem by the end of this year.

Huawei recently launched a new Kirin 810 processor using the TSMS 7nm process at the launch of the Nova 5 series. Subsequently, some media reports pointed out that they will launch the Kirin 985 processor along with its new flagship Mate 30 series in the second half of the year. The SoC is speculated to adopt the 7nm EUV process, and latest reports indicate Huawei seems to be planning to launch another flagship processor by the end of this year, most likely named as Kirin 990.

According to some credible sources, Huawei will launch two flagship Kirin chips in this year. The first one will be the Kirin 985 processor for the Mate 30 series, which will use TSMC’s second-generation 7nm EUV process. As for the second chip, it is allegedly claimed to be the world’s first commercial integrated 5G baseband processor. Simply put the application processor and baseband processor are integrated on a single chip. It is expected to launch by the end of this year.

Although MediaTek has already announced 5G chip with integrated  5G model, therefore it would be interesting to see which one wins the race by making early debut in the market. MediaTek recently confirms that they will start producing this chip in Q1, 2020 and are ready to deliver samples to their customers in Q3, 2019. On the other hand, Qualcomm has also announced its 5G integrated chipset at an even in MWC by revealings it’s sampling to start in Q2, 2019 and commercial availability in the first half of 2020. Overall, chip manufacturers are trying hard to make 5G devices more affordable with their latest technologies.

MediaTek 5G SoC with integrated 5G modem

Furthermore, if the current sources are believed, then we can confirm that the Kirin 985 processor on the Huawei Mate 30 series will be non-integrated with external 5G baseband as we have seen on Kirin 980. Apparently, 985 chipset is likely to arrive with minor upgrades over Kirin 980 such as overloaded CPU and slightly more powerful GPU.

Huawei lately launched the Huawei Mate 20X 5G version. This is equipped with Kirin 980, that comes with external Baron 5000 baseband modem and supports the SA/NSA dual-mode 5G. Unlike the Kirin 980 or 985, The kirin 990 will most probable debut with an integrated 5G modem to make it more optimize and affordable (of course for self-use). As there is no official confirmation yet by the Huawei, we have to wait until the company officially confirms its existence. For further information, stay in touch with us!
