Huawei already has the 7nm Kirin 980 flagship chipset in its portfolio. Now, it’s planning to add another 7nm chipset in that portfolio. The head of Huawei’s smartphone division – He Gang, announced this news in a Weibo post.
The Huawei Nova 5 is supposed to be the first smartphone powered by that chipset. The new chipset which we are talking about, is the Kirin 810 which would serve as a great replacement over the Kirin 710 used in several Huawei and Honor mid-range devices. Kirin 710 was already getting old. So, it was about time that there was new chip. So, it’s cool to feel this fresh breeze of air from Huawei.
The Huawei Nova is expected to have a 6.39-inch AMOLED FHD+ punch-hole display with a 32MP selfie camera tucked inside that punch-hole. Also, it’ll be featuring an under-display fingerprint sensor. The primary camera on the rear is supposed to be the 48MP sensor. Powering this hardware, there will be a 4,200 mAh battery cell with the support for 40W fast charging.
Huawei is supposedly going to launch the Huawei Nova 5i and Nova 5 along with their pro versions on June 21. I’m hoping to see several devices featuring this new Kirin 810 chipset.
