Fast chargers are now a focal point for development in the smartphone industry. Earlier today, we reported that a Xiaomi 120W fast charger just got the Chinese 3C certification. Now, there are reports two fast chargers from Huawei also got the 3C certification. One of the chargers is a 65W GaN while the other is a 66W fast charger. According to speculations, Huawei’s 66W fast charger maybe for the Huawei mate 40 series.
At the Huawei P40 series Chinese launch press conference, Yu Chengdong brought Huawei’s super-fast charging gallium nitride dual-port charger. This charger comes with a maximum charging power of 65W. According to reports, Huawei’s super-fast GaN charger uses a dual-port super-fast charging solution. The USB Type-C interface supports the standard PD protocol with a foldable pin design. In all, there is no confirmation that Huawei’s 66W fast charger is for the Huawei Mate 40 series. According to speculations, the Huawei Mate 40 series will use a 1200P+ resolution 90Hz screen. The Pro model will come with a notch design so it can support face recognition.
Huawei mate 40 Series Speculations
According to recent speculations, the Huawei Mate 40 series will come with a 90Hz display. Although there are two samples (90Hz and 120Hz), Huawei cares so much about its batteries thus it willhttps://www.ithome.com/0/495/980.htm most likely go for a 90Hz display. Furthermore, the Mate 40 series will arrive on schedule. Its 5nm processor will be delivered before mid-September. According to @MobileWaferDarren, Huawei is going to need a lot of chips before the end of the year. The company will need 5nm, 7nm, 16nm, and 28nm mobile chips. It will also need a TWS headset Bluetooth chip developed by HiSilicon. All these chips in their numbers will be available before mid-September.
From previous reports, the Mate 40 series will use a 5nm Kirin processor. This chip should combine the Cortex A77 or A78 CPU architecture + Mali G77/G78 GPU architecture. Such a combination will guarantee a better performance for the 120Hz high refresh rate screen experience.
As for the name of the next Kirin 5nm chip, there has been some confusion. While there was a report that claims that it will be Kirin 1000, others say it will be Kirin 1020. Either way, there are reports that the development code of Kirin 1000 is “Baltimore”. Recall that the Kirin 990 5G uses Cortex A76 architecture. This sparks speculations that the Kirin 1000 may use Cortex A77/A78 architecture and Mali G77/G78 GPU architecture. With this combination, the performance of the CPU and GPU will increase dramatically. In all, we will have to wait a few months to get the exact architecture of this chip.
