Kirin 990 5G is world’s 1st Flagship 5G SoC powered with 7nm+ EUV with Arm Mali-G76 MC16 GPU, over 10 billion transistors, supports NSA/SA (Non-Standalone and Standalone) architectures simultaneously, compatible with all different bands and frequencies of 4G and 5G, connects with 2G, 3G, 4G and 5G, Kirin 990 5G reaches 5G peak download rate, In Sub-6GHz band, the theoretical peak download speed can reach 2.3 Gbps and the theoretical peak upload speed can reach 1.25 Gbps, designed in three levels of efficiency, the Kirin 990 Series achieves great improvement in overall performance and energy efficiency. HUAWEI’s self-developed Da Vinci architecture NPU features a Big-Core plus ultra-low consumption Tiny-Core contributing to a boost in AI performance. In AI face recognition, the efficiency of NPU Tiny-Core can be enhanced up to 24x than the Big-Core. The ISP is enhanced by 15% using BM3D hardware-level noise reduction capable of producing vivid photos of natural views, city architectures and night shot, real-time video segmenting and rendering using its stable video processing capability architecture elevates outstanding performance and great energy efficiency. UFS 3.0 for fastest mobile device data transfer speed.
