Previously, renowned leaker @RODENT950 had published some information pertaining to the upcoming Kirin 1020 SoC (codenamed Baltimore).
The new flagship processor will be the successor to the current Kirin 990 the following year. It is said to boast a 50% increase in raw speed gain over the Kirin 990, and will be manufactured via a 5nm manufacturing process.
Now, a new report (via GSMArena) has revealed that the Kirin 1020 will be utilizing the upcoming Cortex-A78 cores and will be skipping the Cortex-A77 cores altogether.
- Huawei currently on their way to become the top smartphone maker in the world
- In just 60 days, Huawei has shipped over 7 million Mate 30 series smartphones
- It’s official! Huawei receives another 90-day license extension from the US
The combination of 5nm manufacturing process and the utilization of Cortex-A78 cores are the contributing factors for Kirin 1020’s performance boost.
However, we are still pretty far away from it’s official announcement and we probably wouldn’t see it on the upcoming Huawei P40 flagships.
