As we progress fast into the future, there is an ever-increasing competition in the mobile industry and among chip making manufacturers. Earlier Qualcomm talked about the arrival of world’s first 5G-enabled smartphone to be coming this year and on the other side, Huawei is working hard to be the first one to release 5G enabled smartphone.
The top Chinese manufacturer knew it pretty well that they had to rely upon Qualcomm to forward their 5G powered chip which means it would automatically allow other manufacturers to utilize them too, thus Huawei had its own chip manufacturing unit working hard for the greater cause of 5G technology.
Earlier we had news that Huawei HiSilicon Kirin 980 was in production, which is thought to be way more powerful than the world’s first AI chip i.e Kiren 970 which wasn’t able to provide more power than its competitor chip from Qualcomm i.e Snapdragon 845. HiSilicon Kirin 980 is also expected to beat Snapdragon 980 in terms of performance.
As per the latest news in this regard, another beast of a chip i.e Kirin 1020 is there to offer twice performance compared to Kirin 970 that secured 400.000 points on AnTuTu benchmarking website. It’s expected that as 5G network launches, the Kirin 1020 would go into mass production, being installed in many Huawei flagships and other smartphones, giving a major boost to the popular Chinese smartphone manufacturer in the global market where it already stands firmly on the third spot.
