Huawei Mobile has a launch event scheduled for September 19 for the launch of its flagship Mate 30 series in Munich, Germany. But ahead of that, the embattled Chinese firm is hosting a keynote event at FA 2019 on September 6th. The event will be anchored by Huawei CEO Richard Yu who will be presenting the company’s high-end Kirin 990 chipset.
While the Berlin event will be anchored under the slogan “Rethink Evolution”, Huawei has a separate event with a similar slogan – “Reconstruction”. The event holds simultaneously in Beijing, China, and will be the launchpad for the Kirin 990 for the Chinese audience. However, we are not sure if this is an entirely separate event or a live broadcast event.
Whatever be the case, the Munich and Beijing event is in preparation for the grand unveiling of the Huawei Mate 30 series which will be based on the Kirin 990.
Kirin 990 with built-in 5G modem?
Huawei in one of its teaser videos made reference to a 5G tech, which essentially confirms rumors that the upcoming SoC will 5G support. Specifically, reports have it that the Kirin 990 will come embedded with a 5G modem, unlike the Snapdragon 855+ from its archrival with a separate modem. The merit is, of course, better power management in theory than pairing a separate 5G modem with the chipset.
