One of the top Chinese tech giant Huawei is preparing to launch brand new silicon chip Kirin 1020. On the other hand, some report claims it will be called the Kirin 1000. Huawei’s next flagship SoC and the Kirin 990, likely arriving in next year’s Mate 40 series.
According to the recent report, Huawei’s Kirin 1020 processor is code-named “Baltimore”. The chipset will be built with TSMC’s 5nm process for better power efficiency and more stable performance.
Huawei is rumored to use ARM’s Cortex-A77 cores with the Kirin 1020 instead of Cortex-A76 cores it retained with the Kirin 990 and Kirin 990 5G. This helps Kirin 1020 to easily gain a 50% performance improvement over its predecessor.
