In an unexpected twist, HUAWEI is set to launch the Kirin 830 chipset, marking a significant turnaround from their earlier announcement that there would be no Kirin chipsets in 2023. The Chinese tech giant had confidently dismissed these reports as “false news.” However, fast forward nine months, and HUAWEI not only unveiled the Mate 60 series with the Kirin 9000S platform but is now gearing up for the introduction of another SoC – a Kirin 8 series.

HUAWEI's Surprise: The Kirin 830 Chipset Expected to Debut by Year-End

The upcoming chipset is widely anticipated to be named the Kirin 830, and according to recent leaks, it is scheduled to make its debut alongside the nova 12 series “towards the end of the year.”

While this isn’t the first time the Kirin 830 has made headlines, the release timeframe is a new development. Information points towards the nova 12 and nova 12 Pro, and it seems that the Kirin 830 chipset might be exclusively paired with the standard nova 12 model. This particular smartphone is expected to feature a triple-camera setup on the rear, a formidable 60 MP selfie camera on the front, and noteworthy 88W fast charging support.

In terms of performance, the Kirin 830 is rumored to be on par with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 778G or Snapdragon 870. It’s essential to note that these performance comparisons are still speculative at this stage. However, a more pressing issue remains: the manufacturing of the chipset.

The 5G technologies and patents essential for such chipsets are primarily held by US-based companies that are prohibited from conducting business with HUAWEI or its chipset subsidiary, HiSilicon. Stay tuned for more updates on the Kirin 830 and its performance as further details emerge.


Pokdepinion: The unexpected revival of the Kirin series, with the impending Kirin 830 release, is bound to capture the interest of tech enthusiasts and HUAWEI supporters alike. As we move closer to the end of the year, the arrival of this new chipset will undoubtedly mark a significant moment in HUAWEI’s continued journey within the tech industry.
