HiSilicon, Huawei’s semiconductor division is developing its next-gen mobile application processor reportedly called Kirin 985, which has now reached to testing phase in the production process to make its way in a large scale production mode.
According to DigiTimes, Huawei Mate 30 series will be equipped with Kirin 985 processor based on TSMC’s 7nm EUV process, which has had undergone in its trial production in the second quarter and will be in mass production in the third quarter.
The Kirin 985 series chip supports Huawei’s high-end 4G smartphones including the upcoming Mate 30 series but the company is also planning to produce a 5G modem integrated chip version of SoC for the same phone.
It’s also reported that Huawei has accelerated its pace of launching a 5G baseband processor or 5G modem integrated SoC and planning to make it commercially available by the start of next year.
Apart from this, Huawei Mate 30 series is expected to be launched around September or October equipped with Kirin 985 chip so the company may come up early with a new 5G baseband enabled Kirin processor for the Mate 30 or it’s unlikely to happen that the company decided to go with first gen Balong 5000 5G modem chip separately inside the phone similar to Mate X and Mate 20X 5G.
Huawei unveils new custom and port solutions to build world-class Trade architecture
Huawei Connect 2022 event, held in Bangkok has come to an end. But, the new techniques and solutions that the company has introduced in this event will keep working for the benefit of consumers. And one of these solutions is the Huawei Custom-Port.
According to the official statements, Huawei has offered a huge bundle of custom and port solutions to build a world-class trade infrastructure. Consequently, these solutions will elevate the digital transformation growth in Asia Pacific regions.
The Senior Vice President of Huawei Customs and Port Team – Robin Lu defines the purpose of these solutions:
“At HUAWEI CONNECT this year, we are sharing our leading ICT products and successful industry scenario-based solutions in the hope of helping customs and port infrastructure in the Asia Pacific achieve modernization and smart development. In doing so, we can improve port operational efficiency and cross-border trade facilitation.”
Solutions will work as a significant part!
Lu also describes that the following solutions will work as the brain, arms, legs, and eyes of the ports:
Smart Container Planning (Brain): Planning is the main and the beginning of any port. Thus, the company uses the Huawei Cloud OptVerse AI Solver to enable intelligent planning and to bring efficiency at every step of production.
Remote Control with Optical Network (Arms): Conventional operations are quite time-taking and labor-intensive. But, with Huawei’s remote control solution, based on an optical network, the tasks become easier, safer, and consume less time.
Smart Horizontal Transport (Legs): Ports are usually 24/7 open work. With overloads and safety risks, it often becomes difficult to get the appropriate results. But Huawei Horizontal Transport solution integrates such features that enable autonomous driving, intelligent obstacle avoidance, and adaptive cruise control, which reduces safety and increases efficiency by 20 percent.
Smart Production Security (Eyes): Huawei provides a smart production security solution to aid terminals as well as safety risks.
Apart from these mechanisms, Huawei also takes supports Remote Inspection and Smart Gates solutions. Together, these lead to faster inspection and better collaboration. Ultimately, this will help the company to understand the needs of consumers and respond to them even faster.
Do you think Kirin chips will return next year?
There is a bunch of news surrounding Huawei‘s comeback in the chipset market. On the other hand, there’s a question tagged – whether the company will return to the Kirin franchise next year.
Reports suggest that Huawei is gathering support from Chinese semiconductor makers. The aim of this partnership between Huawei and Chinese firms is aimed to make a breakthrough in the chipset market.
Meanwhile, Huawei has not given any official node on this matter.
Following the last two news, readers have asked us whether the company would make a return with Kirin chipsets. On that, we don’t have an exact answer but we can check some facts before we jump to the conclusion.
According to the source, Huawei initially plans to make network equipment chips, not smartphone processors. Because mobile chipset requires advanced lithography technology as compared to network equipment. Yet, the deadline for this achievement is set around this year.
That’s how we cannot deny the possibility of Huawei for the return of Kirin next year. However, we do believe that the company needs 5G RF component before proceeding with the mobile processor. As the company already has access to Snapdragon chips.
Still in development:
Past insights reveal that HiSilicon has not stopped researching semiconductor design. This would help the company to make a good comeback, once the printing services reconnect to build new Kirin processors.
Back in 2019, Huawei has been prohibited to get U.S. technologies. The company cannot purchase new techs or sell them. In 2020, the U.S. further extended this ban and stopped Huawei from printing new chips via third-party manufacturers such as TSMC.
Kirin 9000 was the last Kirin that made its debut with the Huawei Mate 40 series. In the aftermath, the phone maker has saved some inventory for later released products such as Mate X2 and P50 series. However, it later decided to switch completely to Snapdragon processors but due to the lack of RF processors, the company cannot add 5G touch in new smartphones.
Still, Huawei keeps on digging for new ways to access new technologies and resolve the current difficulties.

Huawei begins Third-Gen 5G Massive MIMO deployment in global markets, starting from Philippines
Huawei has decided to commercially deploy the third-generation 5G Massive MIMO in the global markets. And, to begin with, the company has initiated the assembling procedure of the product from the Philippines region.
According to the latest information, the Huawei 5G Massive MIMO is capable of achieving the best performance with the lowest power consumption. Further, it involves several advanced and new-generation innovative technologies for managing operations.
For instance, ultra-wideband, multi-antenna, and extremely large antennas. Together, these components improve spectral as well as energy efficiency. Besides, it also aids the industrialists to maintain green, simplified and high-end 5G networks.
So far, the Philippines has been constructing the 5G infrastructure for three years. On the flip side, it executed several Massive MIMO products to continuously deliver 5G facilities among users as well as maintain the 4G demands.
However, in the recent few years, the 5G techniques have overtaken the network spectrum. And the latest MIMO product can face all the hurdles to meet the required network development. The proof is the download and upload speeds which are 35% more than the normal network solutions.
Moreover, it enlarges the coverage area of the network by 30 percent. Eventually, it surrounds the large inter-site distances that other technologies usually don’t.
5G Massive MIMO – a step towards sustainable development!
The President of Huawei’s Wireless Solution – Yang Chaobin gives the following details of the third-generation 5G Massive MIMO product:
“Ultra-wideband, multi-antenna, and extremely large antenna arrays are important innovations for improving coverage and reducing energy consumption. We believe that continuously improving the utilization of air interface resources will be conducive to the sustainable development of the communications industry in the Philippines.”
Huawei has begun its work in the respective network field and will keep adding unique and thoughtful techniques. Consequently, we will soon be able to see new and high-tech network benefits in every corner of the world.
