“In order to better give play to the future wisdom, Kirin family will soon welcome new member,” announced Huawei Kirin.
Huawei Kirin said that the new Kirin chip will be released at Huawei products and strategy online press conference at 21:00 on February 24, Beijing time. This is also the first high standard online new product release conference of Huawei.
According to the current information, the new Kirin chip is more likely to be the Kirin 820.
It was previously reported that the Kirin 820 chip may use the Cortex A76 architecture, but there is no information about the specific process. The Kirin 820 is said to use TSMC’s 6nm process. Industry insiders said that the Kirin 820 may be put into quantity produced in May or June this year at the earliest. Considered that TSMC plans to put the 6nm process into use at the end of the year, so the Kirin 820 may use the 7nm process.
There is no reliable information about whether the Kirin 820 will use 6nm or 7nm process, so it is too early to say.
