Huawei is already working on its next-generation flagship processor, the Kirin 1020. Even though this processor will not be released until next fall, there is already information about it on the news.

The latest news about the Kirin 1020 comes from Weibo. One of the bloggers’ channel posted ‘5nm Baltimore, ready to verify!’

Huawei is known to codename its HiSilicon chips after foreign cities. Also, TSMC’s 5nm process only has two customers at the moment – HiSilicon and Apple. So, it is quite safe to say that the Weibo post hints at Kirin’s next-generation flagship. The chip is likely ready to enter the tape-out verification stage.

The Kirin 1020 will reportedly upgrade to the A78 framework, skipping the A77. However, it is probably too early to conclude on the framework. More accurate information will definitely be available over time.

According to rumors, the Kirin 1020 will come with a 50% increase in power over the Kirin 990. In relation, the Snapdragon 865 SoC features a less than 25% increase in power over the Snapdragon 855.

The Huawei Mate 40 series will probably debut with this processor when it launches next year.
