We have long heard that the Kirin 990 will debut at IFA 2019, but now, a Huawei billboard at the IFA 2019 event in Berlin confirms that.
The poster bears the slogan "Rethink Evolution", the image shows the Kirin 990 5G chip name and it is manufactured on the 7nm FinFET Plus EUV process.
Huawei also stated that Kirin 990 is the first 5G integrated chip in the world, however, just yesterday (September 4), Samsung launched Exynos 980 chip and also integrated 5G modem. However, it is possible that the Kirin 990 will be commercialized earlier than the Exynos 980, because the Huawei Mate 30 smartphone will appear in 2 weeks. While Samsung's Exynos 980 chip may be early next year to appear on the Galaxy S11.
Interestingly, Qualcomm is also believed to have an important speech, focusing on 5G at IFA 2019, but this speech will come after Huawei launches the Kirin 990 chip.
Many people are hoping, after Huawei, Qualcomm will also talk about Snapdragon processor integrated 5G modem. Competition is a good thing and of course, it will benefit consumers because great products are often born in the competition.
