Huawei's working on a new Kirin 1020 processor that will double performance levels
by Joshua Swingle / Jun 20, 2018, 12:37 PM
The chip in question is said to be under development with a focus on upcoming 5G smartphones. In fact, the company is looking towards a release around the end of 2019 to coincide with the launch of various 5G networks. Not only this, though, but the Chinese brand is also working towards providing a huge performance boost. Specifically, the report claims the new Kirin 1020 will be capable of doubling the performance levels of the current Kirin 970 that is present inside the Huawei P20 and P20 Pro. In addition to this, the company’s recent focus on AI will be further solidified with an improved neural processing unit.
Taking into account the stated timeline for the processor, it seems likely that the company will debut it inside the Huawei Mate 30 and Mate 30 Pro which should arrive in the final quarter of 2019 if the brand sticks to its previous launch timelines. For the time being, however, its next two flagship series' will presumably ship with the Kirin 980 inside, which is based on the newer 7nm process.

It doesn't matter, I have the Mate 10 Pro and I regret buying it because of their battery aggressive optimization, it stops many software from syncing in the background and shuts down music apps if unused for a couple of hours and ends up when you get.in the car, nothing is working and you have to open these apps again manually to connect to Bluetooth and so on. And yes I set the battery optimization to manual but still it doesn't matter. No more Huawei for me.

Just imagine what a more powerful and refined P20 Pro would be like. I know Google is sticking to their single lens this year but Huawei has seriously made the most flexible and innovative phone this year. Samsung gets my vote as well for the dual aperture mechanism. This is good news.

How is P20 pro most flexible and innovative phone this year ? A phone with ugly notch, big bottom bezel, no 3.5 mm jack, no 2k screen, no wireless charging, is not a phone that's most flexible and innovative. It's a compromised phone despite having no need whatsoever. If you really want to look at innovative and flexible phones, go have a look at Vivo Nex and Oppo Find X.

You can also said that to other phones.. "You can't find one other phone that can do everything the S9 can do" or "You can't find one other phone that can do everything the iPx can do" Even after you limit it to camera functionality.

Wrong. The iPhone X doesn't have a singular feature that can't be found on at least one other phone. I did praise Samsung for the dual aperture but outside of that, you'd really have to dig deep to find one feature that is only found on their phones. At least three phones can do 960fps at 720p with the Sony XZ2 being able to do it at 1080p. You can't find one phone that can do 4-6 seconds handheld long exposures or has a 3x telephoto zoom. And you can use the zoom functions in any lighting condition as opposed to other phones that default to a digital crop in low light. Can't find another modern phone with a sensor as big as the one found on the P20 Pro let alone 40 mp. Can't find another phone with three rear cameras either. And when you get into shooting modes, the gap widens even further. You got auto, manual, and so much more. Look, I'm not a Huawei fanboy or anything but they have moved the bar this year. They aren't simply doing what everybody else is doing and to me at least, that's exciting.

Nex and Find X is more of a gimmick or novelty rather than an innovation. And find X didn't even included a fingerprint sensor, you have to popup the camera every time to login. I really dig the fullscreen thing but the popup mechanism is what concerns me and IP rating. The fingerprint sensor on Nex though is what's innovative, Huawei on the other hand has this pureview like tech on camera which is also an innovation.
