Smartphones are getting meatier with better specifications and features than ever. We now have smartphones that run faster with more efficient hardware than PC or laptops, or are equally powerful. Thanks to the advancements in chipset technologies, smartphones can now take care of heavy graphic games and animations, and handle multitasking with much ease.
So far, smartphone brands have been enticing consumers on the basis of the number of cores on their smartphones. Cores are important as much as the processing technologies that go behind a SoC to make it more energy efficient and powerful. Consumers first got attracted to quad-core chipset and then got hooked to smartphones with octa-core SoC. However, not all smartphones running on octa-core chipsets are equally powerful.
A couple of year back, the 28nm chip was a big thing, but it got replaced by the 20nm chipset for an improved performance. Now, the 20nm chipset seems boring when compared with a 16nanometer fabrication node, which promises faster performance. Also, the 16nm chipset consumes less power, meaning it is more battery efficient, hence allowing smartphones to run for longer on a full charge. The 16nm chipset is sleeker than the 20nm chip, and hence can be used by smartphone makers in cutting down the thickness of their smartphones. The 16nm chipset manages to take care of heavy apps with much ease and smoothly, without any glitches or hiccups. With all these capabilities, the chipset will test the potential and technical abilities of chipset makers.
Huawei's Honor brand has received good reviews for its devices, for its smartphones offer good processing power. Now the company is expected to come up with its new flagship smartphone that uses 16 nm chipset. Huawei's Honor brand leverages the 16nm manufacturing process in its new gen Kirin chipset. The company's upcoming 16nm tech seems pretty impressive. The company is believed to be launching its new flagship with the said chipset this month.
As per rumors, the upcoming Honor smartphone will be powered by the company's home-produced Kirin SoC with 16nm architecture. The upcoming smartphone is suspected to make for a good option for those looking for a smartphone that does not only promise smooth performance, but also give better battery life, considering that the 16nm technology, when used with a SoC, makes it more power efficient and does substantial power reduction for the same chip performance. Moreover, with a 16nm chipset, the phone will also have better RF performance.
We are eagerly awaiting the launch of the new smartphone from Honor that will feature this latest 16 nm chipset, to share more details with our readers.
