Yesterday, Xiong Junmin, vice president of the Honor business department, said that Honor and Huawei share 5G technology and have the world’s leading self-research capabilities. The excellent 5G experience is clearly reflected in the download and upload speed. But the 5G capabilities of high-end chips need to have a more comprehensive test.
In addition, he listed 4 evaluation latitudes: 5G anti-interference, 5G energy efficiency, 5G search capability, and 5G dual card experience. This was a clear hint that the Kirin 820 leads the competition in these four aspects.
Last year the Kirin 810 changed the market competition pattern of mid-to-high-end mobile chips. Considering that the Kirin 810 has already used 7nm, A76 large core, and other configurations, the Kirin 820 is expected to further upgrade the performance of CPU, GPU, NPU and become a new generation 5G pseudo-flagship chip.
According to reports, Kirin 820 is manufactured using TSMC’s 7nm process. Also, it integrates A76-based CPU, G77-based GPU, and Huawei’s self-developed DaVinci-based NPU. Therefore, compared to the previous generation Kirin 810, the improvement will be very significant.
Xiong Junmin previously said the Honor 30S will be a product that changes the competitive landscape of the 5G smartphone market.
