HiSilicon Kirin 820 5G Platform Targets Mid-Range 5G Smartphones

5G connectivity used to be only found in premium smartphones, but there’s now been several 5G SoC introduced for mid-range 5G smartphones including Qualcomm Snapdragon 765/765G and MediaTek Dimensity 800.

Huawei now has its own as the company’s unveiled Hisilicon Kirin 820 5G platform found in its latest Honor 30S at a launch event in China.

Kirin 820 5G SoC

Hisilicon Kirin 820 5G  key features and specifications:

  • CPU – 1x Cortex-A76 @ 2.36 GHz, 3x Cortex-A73 @ 2.22 GHz, 4x Cortex-A55 @ 1.84 GHz
  • GPU- Arm Mali-G57 GPU (6 cores) with GPU Turbo and Kirin Gaming+ 2.0
  • NPU – 1-big Core
  • ISP – Kirin ISP 5.0 with BM3D SLR image noise reduction, video dual-domain noise reduction, and support for 4K video capture at 60fps.
  • Cellular Connectivity
    • 2G/3G/4G/5G modem
    • Dual-mode SA/NSA 5G
  • Process – 7nm

The new processor extracts 27% extra CPU performance compared to Kirin 810, a 38% graphics performance boost over Mali-G52 GPU, and a 73% AI performance improvement.

That’s about all the information we have now about the processor itself, but eventually more details should surface on Hisilicon Kirin page. We can, however, derive a bit more details from the Huawei Honor 30S specifications, including support for UFS 2.1 flash storage,  a maximum of at least 8GB RAM, and 64MP cameras. For reference, Honor 30S is being sold for 2399 RMB in China with 8GB RAM and 128GB storage, or about $339 US.
