Chinese technology giant Huawei is preparing to launch the Kirin 9010 chipset, which it will produce with a 3nm fabrication process. The processor can form the basis of the Huawei Mate 50.
Despite stricter US sanctions and the sale of the Honor sub-brand, the Chinese company Huawei continues to work on new products without slowing down. Among them is the next flagship chipset that will replace the Kirin 9000 processor released a few months ago.
Huawei’s first-class new processor for mobile devices will be launched under the name of Kirin 9010 and the chipset will be produced with a 3nm fabrication process. If everything goes as planned, Huawei’s new 3nm chipset may hit the market this year. It should be noted that the new flagship series, which is expected to be released in the fourth quarter of 2021, is considered to be the basis of the Huawei Mate 50. In addition to all this, the technical features of the Kirin 9010 are still kept secret.
Other companies continue their work
It is worth remembering that the current Kirin 9000 is the first mobile chip for Android devices developed according to 5nm standards. Then Samsung Exynos 1080 and Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 were released. Huawei will be the first company to produce a 3-nanometer chip, followed by other manufacturers, including Qualcomm.
Samsung has decided to skip the 4nm process and move from the 5nm fabrication process to the 3nm process. Apple is also developing its own mobile processor based on TSMC’s 3 nanometer process technology. It is difficult for this processor to hit the market before 2022.
