      At IFA 2019, HUAWEI introduced the new flagship processor, the Kirin 990 5G. According to the manufacturer, this chipset has become the first in the world in many areas. In particular, this is the first 7-nm processor with a built-in 5G modem. The company also improved graphics performance and energy efficiency.

      According to HUAWEI, the capacity of the Kirin 990 5G in comparison with the Kirin 980 increased by 10% in single-core mode and by 9% in multi-core. In addition, the company promises best-in-class energy efficiency, so devices will last longer than competitors.
      Using the industry-leading 7nm + EUV technology, the Kirin 990 5G has become the industry’s most compact 5G mobile processor. In addition, it is also the first mobile chip with more than 10 billion transistors. Thanks to the built-in Balong 5000 modem, devices based on Kirin 990 5G will be able to download data via the Internet at speeds up to 2.3 Gb/s when connected to fifth-generation networks.
      Kirin 990 5G is also the first flagship chip with a dual-core neuroblock (NPU) based on the Da Vinci architecture, which includes large and small NPU cores. The former provides high performance and energy efficiency when performing heavy computing operations, while the latter, used for the first time in the industry, are responsible for performing tasks with ultra-low power consumption.

      The Kirin 990 5G central processor uses a three-tier structure to increase energy efficiency. It consists of two super-large cores with a frequency of 2.86 GHz, two large cores of 2.36 GHz and four low-power cores operating at a frequency of up to 1.95 GHz. As for the graphics subsystem, the Kirin 990 5G is the first to use the 16-core Mali-G76 graphics processor on the market. It is also worth noting the support for Kirin Gaming + 2.0 technology, which provides smoother gameplay and improved gaming performance.
      Comparison of the characteristics of Kirin 990 5G and Kirin 980:

      In addition to the Kirin 990 5G, the usual Kirin 990 will also be released, the main difference of which is the lack of 5G support. It is likely that the manufacturer will install these chips depending on the availability of fifth-generation networks in each country. The first devices based on the Kirin 990 5G will be the Mate 30 series smartphones and the folding Mate X.
      Together with the Kirin 990 5G and Kirin 990, HUAWEI also introduced the Kirin A1 processor, designed for wearable electronics, headphones and IoT devices. This is the world's first chip with support for Bluetooth 5.1 and Bluetooth 5.1 LE. The first device based on it was the new FreeBuds 3 wireless headphones.

      iPhone 12 debuts touch-sensitive image stabilization
      In 2020, Apple will replace the optical image stabilization system (OIS) with touch-based stabilization. The key difference is the replacement of mobile camera lenses with a mobile sensor. Until now, sensor stabilization was inferior in two key indicators: performance when shooting in low light and cost. However, modern technology should solve these problems.

      According to the publication Digitimes, in 2020, Apple plans to introduce touch image stabilization only in the top model of the iPhone 12. The reason for the rejection of OIS is not clear; according to one version, thus the company's engineers intend to reduce the physical size of the cameras.
      Meizu 17 develops incredible speed in 5G networks
      This year, Meizu announced plans for the intensive development of a line of smartphones with support for 5g networks. Meizu Vice President for technological development Liang Dong Ming announced four models at once, led by the flagship Meizu 17 based on Qualcomm Snapdragon 865. Its announcement will take place in the first half of 2020.
      This week, an unnamed Meizu smartphone was tested at the Meizu Science and Technology Park to determine available download speeds and returns on fifth-generation mobile networks. Presumably, Meizu 17 took part in the testing. A screenshot of the result was published on the social network Weibo.

      In the laboratory, Meizu 17 developed a download speed of 556 Mbit / s, and an upload speed of 75.1 Mbit / s with a maximum delay of 20 ms and an average of 4 ms.
      Live Photos of the realme X50 display confirm rumors of a dual front-end
      Live Photos of the realme X50 display were published in Chinese media. The panels are shown on the reverse side so that it was possible to see the substrate and the loop. In addition, two holes for front cameras are visible in the upper right corner.

      The realme X50 will be equipped with a new Qualcomm Snapdragon 765g processor with support for simultaneous dual-channel Wi-Fi and 5G for maximum data transfer speed. A liquid system with a copper heat sink tube is provided for cooling the processor.

      The smartphone will be presented on January 7.
