Honor has officially launched its first 5G smartphones: Honor V30 and V30 Pro in China, both smartphones are powered by the company’s latest 5G solutions. Which is way ahead in technology compared to others, says the company’s head.
Honor President, George Zhao said that the Honor V30’s Kirin 990 + Balong 5000 5G solution is 4-6 months advanced and ahead of its competitor, and it’s nearly one and a half years ahead of the rivals in the flagship 5G SoC.
Honor V30 uses a dual 7nm chip combination of Kirin 990 processor + Balong 5000 modem. On the other hand, V30 Pro is powered by all in one chip Kirin 990 5G, providing the ability for faster processing and supports both SA/NSA dual-mode 5G networks.
During the event, Honor V30 compared with other flagship smartphones, Honor V30 achieved a 69% higher download speed and a 73% increase in upload speed.
HiSilicon Kirin 990 was officially launched during the IFA 2019 comprising two variants: a regular 7nm processed version and a 5G modem integrated 7nm EUV+ version.
The Kirin 990 embed two big Cortex-A76 based cores at 2.86Ghz + two middle Cortex-A76 cores at 2.36Ghz + four small A55 cores at 1.95Ghz. The overall processing performance of the Kirin 990 series increased over 20% and energy efficiency increased by 30%.
Huawei last year introduced its Dual NPU structure, to harness new AI capabilities. To push the AI performance even further, the Kirin 990 adopts DaVinci NPU architecture including 2 Big-Core + 1 Tiny-Core.
