Huawei Developed Kirin 990 Chip

Most tech companies won't develop their own chips, instead opting for something built by Qualcomm, Intel, or the like. Most tech companies aren't Huawei, and Huawei is all about building its own chips and using them to try and one-up everyone else. The newly-announced Kirin 990 is no exception.Huawei has proudly proclaimed that this is the world's first flagship 5G system on chip. Unlike other companies which have been using a 4G SoC and adding an extra 5G modem, Huawei has squeezed them both into the same chip saving a little bit of space inside the phone in the process. It also happens to be 36% smaller than comparable Snapdragon and Exynos processors, according to Huawei's stats. In fact, it's 7nm, much like last year's Kirin 980.

There is a 4G variant too, but with 5G being the big thing in the tech industry, that's what Huawei was mainly focused. on.

So what does this mean? Lots of big fancy numbers, apparently, since the chip has 10.3 billion transistors inside, and offers 5G download speeds of up to 2.3Gbps. Upload is a bit slower, but at 1.25Gbps you can't complain quite so much. That's 19% faster than it was before apparently, and fast is always good. Except in when you're in the bedroom, perhaps.

On top of this the Kirin 990 is able to offer faster speeds in areas that have weak 5G signal. It does that by utilising the 4G signal in tandem and boost the speed by 5.8 times. If you're in an area with weak 4G signal as well then you're probably screwed. Unless there's 3G lying around still.
