  • Huawei said that Kirin 990 features 10.3 billion transistors

Huawei Consumer Business group, India today announced that the Industry’s first and only all-in-one flagship 5G Chipset, Kirin 990 series will be soon available in India. The chipset, as per the company, is the world’s first mobile SoC with 10.3 billion transistors.

“As one of Huawei’s key markets, customer-centric innovation is at the heart of everything we do in India. We have always believed in bringing the very best to our consumers by continuously focusing on innovation and making the experience better, every single time. The Kirin 990 is the very pinnacle of smartphone technology today and will leapfrog consumers into a new era of 5G. We are glad to announce a chipset that will revolutionize the way people use their smartphones,” said Tornado Pan, country manager, Huawei brand.

Company’s official statement read, “Huawei’s R&D centre in Bengaluru, the largest for Huawei outside China, has been in the forefront of many global innovations and played a major role in the development of Kirin 990.”

5G version to be available with upcoming Huawei smartphones

The 5G version, as confirmed by the company, will be available in India with upcoming Huawei smartphones. Huawei’s Kirin 990 (5G) is the first 5G SoC in the world. With the seven nm+ EUV manufacturing process, Kirin 990 (5G) is integrated with a 5G modem, achieving a smaller area and lower power consumption.

Huawei’s official statment read, “Moreover, Kirin 990 (5G) is the first full-frequency 5G SoC to support both non-standalone (NSA) and standalone (SA) architectures as well as TDD/FDD full frequency bands, enabling it to accommodate hardware requirements under diverse networks and networking modes. Based on Balong 5000’s excellent 5G connectivity capability, Kirin 990 (5G) provides a leading peak downlink rate of 2.3 Gbit/s and an uplink peak rate of 1.25 Gbit/s, delivering unmatched 5G experiences in the industry.”

it continued, “As for photography, Kirin 990 (5G) provides a brand-new ISP 5.0 that pioneers block-matching and 3D filtering (BM3D) professional-level hardware noise reduction (NR) for capturing brighter and sharper images in low light environments. It is also the first to use dual-domain video NR for more accurate noise processing for videos. In addition, the real-time video post-processing and rendering based on AI segmentation can adjust the image color frame by frame to bring cinematic quality.”
