The Qualcomm Sd 855 has not been in the world on any phone yet. We know it will be based on a 7nm process node and arrive with a way much better experience concerning all the aspects of CPU, GPU, AI, power consumption, connectivity, camera, etc. But before it hits the market, the Huawei Kirin 980 chip has presently managed to become synonymous with the new flagship SoC in the Android camp. It ships with a new-generation A76 architecture, an enhanced ARM Mali-G76 GPU, etc. Shortly, it is the world’s initial SoC in terms of, at least, six aspects. But who said Huawei will stop Below? This company spends billions on R&D. Say, it spent above $300 million on making the Kirin 980. Yesterday, the XDA editor Mishaal Rahman tweeted the Kirin 985 is presently in work.
However, he did not dare to confirm 100% but said that ‘The HiSilicon Kirin 985 is heading Huawei’s upcoming flagship mobile platform. At this moment, nothing but the name is known When it comes the next top-notch SoC of the company.
The digital suffix of ‘5’ is not the first time to appear in the history of Kirin chips. There have been the Kirin 930/935 and 950/955 in the 900 series, and the Kirin 655/658/659 in the Kirin 600 series. Judging from this practice, the Kirin 985 might pretty exist. Most going, we are dealing with the enhanced variant of Kirin 980, such as enlarging the CPU/GPU frequency, etc. After all, it will still be using TSMC’s 7nm process node, the A76 architecture, etc. This is Incredibly logical if taking into account the fact the Snapdragon 855 reached 2.84GHz clock speed, although the Kirin 980’s huge core frequency is only 2.6GHz.
