Huawei's HiSilicon unit to unveil a new Kirin chipset
« on: May 29, 2019, 06:19:52 AM »


Even though it appeared that Huawei was self-reliant when it came to the chips used on his high-end phones, that was not the case. Sure, its HiSilicon unit designed these critical components, but it did so using software developed by a pair of U.S. companies. And chip design firm ARM Holdings has cut its ties with Huawei; the U.K. company says that its designs contain "original U.S. technology." But Huawei did stockpile a year's worth of components which is why, according to Huawei Central, it could be ready to unveil a new chipset as soon as tomorrow.


No, this will not be the new top-of-the-line Kirin 985 SoC chip expected to power the Huawei Mate 30 due out later this year. That chip will replace the Kirin 980 that currently powers the Huawei Mate 20 Pro, the Huawei P30 and P30 Pro. It also will be found inside the foldable Huawei Mate X. Instead, the new HiSilicon component expected to be announced on Wednesday is said to be the Kirin 720 SoC, the successor to the mid-range Kirin 710 chip that powers the Huawei P30 Lite.
