Huawei 2024: Kirin Chip, 5.5G, Cosmos OS, Satellite Internet

Two days ago, Xiaomi 14 Ultra was officially launched, a flagship phone that is nearly flawless in terms of design and specifications. Despite the price increase from the previous generation’s 5999 to 6499 yuan, it continues to sell well. Various review media outlets have praised it, showing why Xiaomi is confident in raising the price. Following the release of Xiaomi 14 Ultra, the next heavyweight new device to meet us in March is the Huawei P70 series. However, based on the leaked information, the Huawei P70 series does not seem to have significant substantial improvements compared to last year’s Huawei Mate 60 series; it appears to be more of a minor upgrade. This is understandable since the Huawei P series is focused on photography and considering the short interval between the releases of the P series and Mate series, revolutionary innovations are unlikely. Huawei’s real ace this year is expected to be the Mate 70 series, set to compete head-to-head with Apple’s iPhone 16 series in September. Although the Huawei P70 series has not been released yet, there is an increasing amount of leaks regarding the Huawei Mate 70 series.

Unlike the Huawei P70 series, the Huawei Mate 70 series seems to once again be ahead by a large margin, with significant upgrades in various core configurations and functionalities. First and foremost, the processor. The Huawei Mate 70 series is highly likely to feature a new Kirin chip surpassing the current Kirin 9000S. According to sources in the supply chain, if the performance of the Kirin 9000S is currently similar to that of the Snapdragon 888, the new Kirin chip’s performance is expected to reach Snapdragon 8+ level, a significant leap. Achieving this while Huawei is under sanctions is truly remarkable. With this improvement to Snapdragon 8+ level, the performance will finally meet mainstream standards.

The performance enhancement will also bring upgrades in other experiential aspects. The Huawei Mate 70 series is expected to completely abandon the Android kernel and code, adopting the pure HarmonyOS, also known as the Cosmos OS. According to Richard Yu, the Cosmos OS and its exclusive applications will increase Huawei’s software performance by 30%, enabling multi-device connectivity, human-computer integration, AI large model support, and other cutting-edge features. Additionally, Huawei is set to unveil new 5.5G commercial technology at the MWC conference on February 26. It is likely that the Mate 70 series will also support the 5.5G network, surpassing in network speed. In terms of satellite communication pioneered by Huawei, the Mate 70 series is expected to globally debut with satellite internet support, once again leading comprehensively.
