Despite US pressure Huawei 7nm processors address 5G
Huawei has created two Kirin chips to address 5G communications, the Kirin 990 for use with a separate 5G modem and the Kirin 990 5G with an integrated 5G modem. These are expected to be deployed in Huawei's upcoming Mate 30 and Honor Vera30 mobile phones.

However, the cores are likely to be same as in the Kirin 980: two Cortex-A76 optimized for highest performance, two Cortex-A76 optimized for a trade off between performance and power consumption, and four Cortex-A55 cores optimized for power consumption. Huawei has been able to push the highest clock frequencies up to 2.86GHz, 2.36GHz and 1.95GHz, respectively, according to reports.

As with the Kirin 980 Huawei has a dual-core neural processor (NPU) on the Kirin 990 5G with a big core plus tiny core approach, but only a single Da Vinci NPU on the Kirin 990. Both versions of the Kirin 980 have a 16-core Mali-G76 GPU.
