Huawei’s online conference is scheduled for February 24. Recently, Huawei officials announced that at this conference, the Kirin chip family will welcome new members, reports Huawei Central.
According to time estimates, this “new member” is likely to be the next generation product of Kirin 810-Kirin 820. There is more and more news about this chip on the Internet, and it is reported that this chip may use TSMC’s 6nm process.
As for the details of the Kirin 820, there are rumors that the chip may use TSMC’s 6nm process, which is an upgraded version of the 7nm process and uses the same extreme ultraviolet (EUV) lithography technology as the 7N + technology.
However, it is also reported that Kirin 820 may still use TSMC’s 7nm process. In this regard, industry insiders said that no matter whether it is a 7nm, 6nm or 5nm process, the difference in the mobile phone application processor (AP) packaging part will not be too great.
The Kirin 8 series chip is positioned in the mid-range. If Huawei is sure to launch the Kirin 820 chip at the conference on the 24th, it means that Huawei and Honor will launch more and cheaper 5G mobile phones next, which is worth looking forward to.
In addition to the Kirin 820, it is also reported that at this conference, Huawei will also release a “smart rhino processor”.
The processor is not only suitable for smartphones, but also used in face recognition devices, weight scales, large-screen LCD displays, computer stylus pens, wearable motion trackers, etc., and has a wide range of applications.
