Huawei Tipped to Have 3nm-Based HiSilicon Kirin 9010 SoC in the Works


Huawei is tipped to expand its high-end HiSilicon Kirin chipsets lineup and launch Kirin 9010 as next-generation system-on-chip (SoC). The new chip is speculated to be based on an all-new architecture based on 3-nanometre (3nm) process technology. This appears to be a remarkable upgrade over the existing HiSilicon Kirin 9000 and Kirin 9000E SoCs that are based on the 5nm process. Competitors including Qualcomm and Samsung have also used the same MOSFET technology node on their recent flagship SoCs for mobile devices.

A tipster, with username @RODENT950, tweeted that Huawei’s next-gen chipset Kirin 9010 is based on 3nm process. There’s, alternatively, no official confirmation to the reported details.

The main points approximately the silicon comes at a time when Huawei is facing challenges in retaining its chipset trade globally — because of US sanctions and scarcity of provide. A recent outline by Counterpoint showed that the Chinese company didn’t receive any growth in the final quarter and managed to keep its 12 percent share in the worldwide smartphone chipset market.

Huawei’s stagnant growth, alternatively, helped MediaTek as the Taiwanese company even surpassed Qualcomm and attracted companies including Samsung and Xiaomi towards its affordable SoCs.

Final year, Huawei Consumer Trade Group CEO Richard Yu indicated that the company would stop making flagship chips because of pressure over the restrictions imposed in america. “This year is also the final generation of Huawei Kirin high-end chips,” Yu had said at an industry convention in August.

Having said that, the newest hearsay around the HiSilicon Kirin 9010 SoC suggests that Huawei may have one final weapon to take on Qualcomm’s Snapdragon and Samsung’s Exynos chips. The move to 3nm process appears reasonably competitive and remarkable — considering the recent arrival of 5nm chips.

Huawei final year brought HiSilicon Kirin 9000 as its final flagship SoC. It debuted on the company’s Mate 40 Pro and Mate 40 Pro+ smartphones in October, while the Kirin 9000E featured on the Mate 40.

Gadgets 360 has reached out to Huawei for a remark on the development of Kirin 9010 SoC. This outline will be up to date when the company responds.
