Kirin 985 supports industry largest image sensor, to launch with Honor 30 series
News about Kirin 985 has been surfacing online since last year and now after a big delay, Huawei has finally planned to launch it.
According to tipster Onleaks, the Kirin 985 processor will allow the use of the largest image sensor of the mobile industry. And it could be unveiled on April 15 with Honor 30 series.
According to the previous information, Honor 30 series likely to include three models – Honor 30, 30 Pro and 30 Pro+. The top model – Honor 30 Pro+ will feature the Kirin 990 5G, while the Pro version equip Kirin 985.
Since all of the phones will be 5G, the Honor 30 (standard version) have higher chances to feature Kirin 820 5G chipset.
The Honor 30 series will come with a powerful 50MP custom Sony IMX 700series sensor. The size of the sensor is yet to be confirmed. However, it’ll be interesting to see whether this sensor is bigger than the ‘already’ largest CMOS sensor featured in the Huawei P40 series.
Reports reveal that the upcoming Huawei Nova 7 series, which also includes three models, could use the same Kirin processor. However, we’ll wait to see what this chipset has to offer in terms of performance.
