5G para la clase media: Huawei muestra el nuevo chip Kirin 820

Huawei: the new mid-range processor should work

Huawei continues to build new hardware in the background. The successor to the Kirin 810 should clearly outperform its predecessor and overcome stiff competition.


With the Kirin 810, Huawei had already introduced a really good mid-range processor last year, which made it possible to forget about the poor performance of previous HiSilicon processors. If it weren’t for the US government embargo, we could get more devices with this chip. For example, the real Honor 9X and not just the reduced version. But perhaps the future looks better. At least it should when it comes to the development of the processors in Huawei’s HiSilicon. The Kirin 820 is said to be on the road, which hardly compromises.

Huawei also wants to take on Qualcomm in the middle class

In any case, from China it is said that the Kirin 820 is based on the 6 nm process and thus outperforms many other current chips. A smaller frame width generally means higher efficiency in terms of power consumption and performance. Furthermore, the Kirin 820 could already have a permanently integrated 5G-capable modem. However, the new processor is not expected before the second half of the year, according to the source. Perhaps by then something has happened that Huawei can bring new devices with Google services back to Europe.
