After launching one of the world’s first 7nm chip Kirin 980, Huawei is all set to launch its successor, Kirin 985 chipset, which will come with improved performance, as claim the recent reports
The upcoming chipset from Huawei will be launched in the second half of this year. As per the report from a Taiwan-based portal, the self-sufficiency rate of Kirin processors for this year will be increased to 60 percent.
The company is expected to significantly increase the production of the Kirin 985 chipset. The Chinese manufacturer is still relying on Qualcomm chips for some of its phones like the recently launched Honor 8C, but the company is now reducing its reliance on other manufacturers going forward.
The upcoming Huawei Kirin 985 chipset will be based on 7nm+ EUV (Extreme Ultraviolet Light) technology. As said, the chipset will be released in the second half of the year as the successor of the Kirin 980.
Huawei P30 Pro is also expected to come with the Kirin 980 and as per the tradition, it is expected that the company will debut the Kirin 985 chipset in the upcoming Huawei Mate 30 flagship series.
Since the manufacturer is looking to deviate from third-party chipsets for its phone, it,s expected that Huawei will accelerate its production of chipsets and may also launch new midrange and entry-level Kirin chips besides the Kirin 985 chipset.
