Huawei Kirin

HiSilicon is the chip designer subsidiary of Huawei and is best known for its Kirin processors performance. The chips designing company has a number of different semiconductor products for different devices.

Kirin is the world’s first chipset that embedded a 5G modem inside a mobile chipset and is a leading performer in AI data processing for Huawei smartphones.

Kirin-powered Huawei devices provide excellent energy efficiency and enable a long-lasting battery backup. That’s not it because Huawei Kirin performance has always been used to provide the best and powerful device experience.

From the beginning:

Kirin 910 was the first flagship processor that was designed by HiSilicon and empowered Huawei to step foot in the premium smartphone business in 2014. This A9 Quad-core chipset was made of 28nm process technology.

Compared to Kirin 910, Qualcomm’s snapdragon 810 was ahead in performance but Kirin maintained the mainstream level and most of the users began to notice Kirin’s existence.

Kirin flagship chipsets

In the past 7 years, Huawei has done immense research and development and found new ways to dig deeper into the world of semiconductor chipset designing and feed them to its smart devices.

So far, the Chinese chip maker has introduced 11 flagship chipsets ranging from 28nm Kirin 910 to 5nm Kirin 9000 and finally crossing lines against Snapdragon processors as well as their performance.

Kirin evolution and comparison with Snapdragon:

Recently, a smartphone evaluator from Weibo has come up with a complete GFXbench evaluation of Huawei Kirin processors against Snapdragon processors and noted the changes that have been made so far.

Below you can check the comparison in performance that has been made in the Kirin flagship chipset since its establishment.

  • 2014 – Kirin 920 8.5 frames vs Snapdragon 810 25 frames
  • 2015 – Kirin 935 8.5 frames
  • 2015 – Kirin 950 18 frames vs Snapdragon Dragon 820 45 frames
  • 2016 – Kirin 960 51 frames vs Snapdragon 835 65 frames
  • 2017 – Kirin 970 65 frames vs Snapdragon 845 84 frames
  • 2018 – Kirin 980 90 frames vs Snapdragon 855 102 frames
  • 2019 – Kirin 990 5G 120 frames vs Snapdragon 865 126 frames
  • 2020 – Kirin 9000 185 frames vs Snapdragon 888 175 frames

Between 2014 to 2020, Kirin has been updated with 8 SoCs, of which two chips were introduced in the same year in 2015.

In terms of overall performance evaluation, the Kirin has overwhelming improved by over 2100% in seven years. and in 2020, it took lead over Snapdragon 888.

To be mentioned, Apple’s A-series has jumped 900 percent performance and Snapdraog 8 series has increased over 600 percent.

So, the performance increment made by the Kirin processor is surely significant and reached over three-fold of the Snapdragon. However, Huawei currently cannot print new chipsets due to the U.S. sanctions but it won’t stop Huawei from doing more research to make its own chipsets.

Huawei Projection

Huawei has recently published a new patent for stereoscopic projection technology that could be cost-effective and it’s a good thing for both seller and the customer.

Information shared by the Chinese patent office, the latest Huawei patent has application number CN202211090428 and it was filed on July 27, 2022, while it was published on January 20, 2023. The patent categories show “Stereoscopic Projection System, Projection System, and Vehicle”.

Stereographic projection is a technique for displaying the angular properties of a plane-faced object on a single drawing or diagram. Directions, as well as planes, may be shown and any desired angle can be measured directly from the projection using a graphical technique.

In stereoscopic projection technology two images, seen from the perspective of the left and the right eye, are projected simultaneously. The frequency of projecting the images is 60 times per second for each eye and covered alternately by the shutter glasses.

Patent Details:

According to the details, this Huawei projection technology consists of a backlight assembly, a spatial light modulator, and a diffuser screen. The backlight assembly is used to output two light beams to the spatial light modulator at different angles. The spatial light modulator is used to modulate two light beams according to different image information to obtain two paths of imaging light.

The spatial light modulator is used to output two paths of imaging light to the diffusion screen at different angles. The diffusion screen is used to diffuse the two paths of imaging light and output the diffused two paths of imaging light at different angles. In this application, by sharing The same spatial light modulator can reduce the cost of the stereoscopic projection system.

looking at the patent diagram, Huawei’s “projection” patent is mainly aimed at stereoscopic projection systems. if utilized, it could be used to watch 3D projection, allowing consumers to watch 3D movies at home.

It’s good news, after a long time, Huawei has once again reclaimed growth in China’s smartphone market despite facing having no 5G in its new smartphones. According to the data compiled by Counterpoint research, Huawei has achieved 15% of year-over-year growth in the fourth quarter of 2022 as compared to the same quarter in 2021.

The company had 7 percent of the overall smartphone market share in Q4 2021, which recorded 9.5% in Q4 2022. This is a major difference. We could assume that the latest progress is made with the release of the Huawei Mate 50 series in October. Thereafter, Huawei customers supported the sales volume to a new milestone.

“Huawei recovered from its low base in 2021, increasing by 15% YoY in Q4. However, the brand is still unable to ship 5G-enabled devices, which is a major concern for its sales outlook.” wrote Counterpoint.

In 2023:

This year, Huawei is planning to launch a number of new smartphones and it’ll return to the dual flagship unveiling tradition. This means we would see the P series and Mate series launching in a single year.

Q4 2022:

In Q4 2022, Apple gained captured 23.7% of the market, maintaining its leading position. But it registered a double-digit YoY decline like major Android OEMs.

All the major OEMs offered stronger promotions during the Singles’ Day online sales festival. They also used the sales promotion season to shed excess inventory. Smartphone sales surged MoM, but the rise didn’t sustain into December when COVID-19 started spreading fast.

Coming to overall sales, China’s smartphone sales declined 14% year over year in 2022, which is counted as the slowest smartphone growth in the last decade. It’s also the fifth year that China recorded continued to decline.

iOS Android HarmonyOS difference

It’s not the first time, we’re talked about HarmonyOS, Android, and iOS, and the differences between and Huawei has listed major benefits of HarmonyOS over the other two operating systems.

According to the image shared by a Weibo tipster, Huawei has listed the key difference between HarmonyOS, iOS, and Android inside its experience store to spread awareness about its operating system and remove confusion.

Below you can check the difference between iOS, Android, and Hongmeng systems listed:

iOS:

The iOS system is a closed-source system developed by Apple, which has relatively high security when downloading software, smooth operation, and simple and beautiful operation of the home screen and app ecosystem.

Disadvantages: The system settings cannot be changed according to the user, and the system compatibility is average.

Android:

Android is an operating system designed based on the Linux macro kernel. There are many devices equipped with Android and a wide range of choices. It has a rich ecosystem, high customization, and good compatibility.

Disadvantages: General security, and open source system brings disadvantages of uncontrollable software APP quality.

Harmony OS:

The HarmonyOS has modularized features, and the microkernel driver enables the system to be disassembled, which reduces the requirements for hardware specifications. Such low requirements allow it to be installed on small devices, such as earphones and smartwatches. HarmonyOS devices can also be connected to each other to achieve a seamless connection.
