The Kirin 810 processor released in June 2019 takes advantage of the 7Nm process, leaving Qualcomm and other competitors behind. Huawei Hisilicon is also ready to continue to copy such practices for the upcoming upgrading products, and once again lead its rivals in the process for about half a year. According to sources familiar with the industry chain, Kirin 820 will adopt a 6nm process, which will be positioned as a sub flagship processor with almost no cost limitation as Kirin 810, and will be mass produced in the second quarter of this year. Another major upgrade to the Kirin 820 processor naturally supports 5g networks.
Huachuang Securities pointed out that if the above information is true, then the upgrading of Kirin 820 process technology means that the more transistors the chip contains per unit space, the more computing power the chip has in theory. At the same time, the more advanced process technology will also bring a significant reduction in power consumption.
