With the launch of the Huawei Mate 40 series, Huawei unveiled the world’s first 5nm chipset, Kirin 9000 and Kirin 9000E. Both of these comes with a powerful architecture to provide a robust performance to the users.
The recently launched foldable phone, Huawei Mate X2 also used the Kirin 9000 processor. Meanwhile, Huawei is gearing to launch its first flagship tier of this year, the Huawei P50, which is likely to come with the same processor.
However, a new piece of information suggests that Huawei may launch a new chipset Kirin 9000L, which is processed with Samsung’s 5nm EUV process technology. In the past, the company has renamed a number of its processors, including the Kirin 990, Kirin 9000, and more. So, this is not a new thing from Huawei’s end.
What’s new in Kirin 9000L?
According to the information, the Kirin 9000L will come with a reduced clock speed compared to Kirin 9000 or 9000E. In detail the large core of the Kirin 9000L is clocked at 2.86Ghz on the other hand, the Kirin 9000 features a large core clocked at 3.13Ghz.
Furthermore, the Kirin 9000L’s SoC also has much lower core counts in the GPU section, including an 18-core Mali-G78 CPU, which is 24 and 22 cores on Kirin 9000 and 9000E respectively.
Coming to the AI processing, the NPU of the Kirin 9000L only has one large NPU core, while the Kirin 9000 and 9000E equips 2 cores inside the Neural Processing Unit.
The source also suggests that the architecture of this unreleased chip is similar to the existing chipsets but has reduced GPU and NPU performance, which may make it a reduced version of the Kirin 9000 and 9000E in terms of display and camera performance.
Samsung U.S. restrictions:
The source further claims that Samsung is the one to process, HiSilicon’s 5nm design to create the Kirin 9000L processor but the South Korean tech giant was restricted the former U.S. President Donald Trump and prohibited from supplying required technologies.
Therefore, it’s currently not clear whether Huawei has permission to print its chip design through the Korean company. However, we’ll have to wait for more confirmation, whether Huawei has such plans or its schedule to bring Kirin 9000 and 9000E with the P50 series.
Huawei P50 render:
Previously, information about the Huawei P50 and P50 Pro leaked through CAD renders, which shows that both of these flagships has an oval shape rear camera system that likely to house a massive set of cameras.
Moreover, both of these devices sport a new hole-punch display cutout to house a selfie camera. Currently, Huawei has not announced any official date for the launch of Huawei P50 but we’ll keep you posted.
