The Huawei Kirin 990 5G is a 7nm octa-core chipset that has 10.3 billion transistors. It uses two big, two middle and four little cores to optimise multitasking, with clock speeds of 2.86GHz, 2.36GHz and 1.95GHz respectively. It also packs a 16-core Mali G76 graphics processor which should offer plenty of power for mobile gaming, as well as smart cache built in to reduce bandwidth by up to 15 percent.

It is also touted to be the first full-frequency 5G SoC — with support both non-standalone and standalone architectures as well as TDD/FDD full frequency bands. The Kirin 990 is a true unified design, supporting Sub-6 GHz 5G networks on both SA and NSA architectures.

For photography, it has a new fifth-generation Dual ISP boasts DSLR-level hardware noise reduction and block-matching and 3D filtering. Aside from implementing the 5G modem, the biggest change in the Kirin 990 is going to be the NPU which is a co-processor optimised for the sort of vector math that’s the lifeblood of machine learning frameworks.
