Samsung Huawei Go Head To Head With New 5G Modem Processor

At the recently held IFA 2019 tech trade show in Berlin, Germany, Huawei announced the Kirin 990 chipset that will be powering the Mate 30 series that is scheduled to go official on september 19. There's now blue and lavender, and the same rear that's glossy at the top and matte at the bottom.

The Mate X as a foldable costing $2,600, is already a hard sell by sheer price alone; add in the lack of Google apps access for the European market, and you've got nothing short of an impossible buy. Of course, with the United States government ban on HUAWEI, the new Mate 30 will probably be missing out on Android 10. Huawei just announced the Kirin 990 that will power the upcoming Mate 30 series and offer an integrated 5G radio.

Huawei CEO said they are looking at how Huawei Mate 30 users can download and install Google Apps and services after they have their smartphones in hand.

The rest of the teasers around speed, performance and connectivity have a lot to do with the recently unveiled Kirin 990 chip, a piece of silicon engineered by Huawei and promising to give the Snapdragon 855 a run for its money.

At the IFA conference, Dr Wang Chenglu, Huawei's president of consumer software, said the company was in the process of developing alternatives to Google apps and services, including Global Positioning System navigation.

Notably, the device will ship with EMUI10, Huawei's variation of Android 10, which Google unveiled last week.

Qualcomm is the world's biggest supplier of mobile phone chips and is suggesting that 5G devices will be hitting scale and volume earlier than many have previously thought. Honor confirmed through a post on Weibo that its Honor Vera 30 (V30) series will be powered by the 5G Kirin 990 chipset. The wider notch of the Mate 30 Pro is said to be housing as many as three camera sensors. To recall, as part of the on-going US-China controversy, a temporary licence that is valid till November was issued, which allowed Google to support and update the Android OS now running on existing Huawei devices. Huawei lacked on giving any exact pricing or availability for this updated P30 Pro, but the company has uncovered its latest EMUI10 update (based on Android 10) and it will be available in beta later this month.
