5G flagship chip comparison

I believe everyone knows that with the official release of Samsung’s Exynos2100 chip, MediaTek is unwilling to follow the 5nm process and released 6nm flagship chip products, which means that all mobile phone chip giants in the world have already released their 5G flagship chip products. Among them, only four flagship chip products adopt 6nm process. They are Apple A14, Kirin 9000, Qualcomm Snapdragon 888, Samsung Exynos 2100. Many netizens are very curious about this. Among the four flagship chips of 5nm process, in the end, Which one has the strongest performance and which one has the fastest 5G network speed?

From the actual official comparison of the four chips, the overall performance of the four chips is not big. The Antutu runs between 690,000 and 750,000 points. Perhaps the biggest difference between them is that the Huawei Kirin 9000 chip does not support millimeters. Wave, only supports Sub6 frequency band, while Qualcomm Snapdragon 888, Samsung Exynos2100, Apple A14+Qualcomm X55 dual-mode 5G baseband chip (hereinafter referred to as Apple A14 dual chip combination), all support millimeter wave + Sub6 frequency band, so we can also see The 5G network rate of Huawei’s Kirin 9000 chip is indeed the slowest. Both the 5G uplink network rate and the 5G downlink network rate are slower than the other three chips, and the fastest is the Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 processor and the Apple A14 dual Chip combination,

Many netizens started to ridicule about this, didn’t they say that Huawei’s 5G technology is the most powerful? Why is Huawei’s 5G network speed the slowest?

However, according to industry sources, the Barong 5000 chip integrated with Huawei’s Kirin 9000 chip actually supports 5G millimeter wave technology. However, when Huawei integrated the 5G baseband chip into the Kirin chip, Huawei castrated the millimeter wave. Why? Has Huawei castrated the millimeter wave band? In fact, it is also because 5G millimeter wave technology is not mature. At present, only the United States is using millimeter wave frequency bands to build 5G networks in the world. It just so happens that Huawei mobile phones are banned from selling in the United States. Naturally, Huawei can castrate millimeter wave technology. Avoid disadvantages such as increased cost and increased power consumption due to support for millimeter wave technology;

Of course, even if the Qualcomm Snapdragon X55 and Snapdragon X60 5G baseband chips support millimeter wave, they only support millimeter wave technology in the United States. For example, the iPhone 12 series mobile phones that have just been released have undergone related function castration, and the National Bank version The iPhone 12 series of mobile phones also do not support the millimeter wave function. Of course, there are many other flagship mobile phones equipped with Snapdragon X55 and Snapdragon 60 baseband chips. The same is true. In order to save money, some domestic mobile phone manufacturers will also control the frequency band. Castration is carried out, so we can see in our daily life that almost all Huawei flagship phones with the highest 5G network speed are almost all Huawei flagship phones. So it can be seen that although the other chips support millimeter wave technology, they have obtained theoretically faster 5G network speeds. However, this is also the theoretical limit speed that only stays in the official laboratory. From the actual experience, the Huawei Kirin 9000 chip is better. After all, the entire 5G network experience needs to rely on mobile phone system optimization in addition to the key 5G chip. Antenna design and 5G base station deployment, etc., will affect consumers’ experience of 5G networks.
