Huawei, Kirin top range with integrated 5G modem later this year | Rumor



Huawei could present two top-of-the-line SoCs by the end of the year: in addition to the already planned Kirin 985 , whose debut should take place with the launch of Mate 30 and Mate 30 Pro , a chip with an integrated 5G modem would be coming ; it would be the first on the market, given that so far all processors with support for 5G networks rely on external modems mounted on the motherboard. For example, staying at Huawei, the Mate 20 X uses a normal Kirin 980 with integrated 4G modem, while 5G connectivity is guaranteed by the "external" Balong 5000 modem .

The solution of the external modem is naturally temporary for everyone. It allowed the arrival of 5G more quickly, but it has important negative aspects to take into account, including greater consumption and more space occupied on the motherboard - and in a smartphone every square millimeter is precious.

The indiscretion, which comes from the respected Japanese financial newspaper Nikkei , does not dwell on the possible technical details of the new SoC. We do not know if Huawei will be able to keep the Kirin 985 features unchanged and simply include a 5G modem instead of the 4G one, or it will have to compromise. Also for this chip, however, the debut should take place on a Mate, specifically the 5G variant of the 30 , whose presentation is scheduled for December .
