Recently, some of the latest news related to the next chipset of Huawei’s HiSilicon Kirin 9000 series – Kirin 9000L has started circulating through online platforms. In this segment, a Weibo tipster confirms the existence of the previously rumored Kirin 9000L chipset.
Further, the tipster has also added very interesting information that the upcoming Huawei Mate 40E Pro 2022 smartphone will be equipped with Kirin 9000L processor. More interestingly, it also supports 5G network connectivity.
The Huawei Mate 40E Pro 2022 powered by Kirin 9000L will launch next month along with the Huawei P50E smartphone. To be mentioned, the Huawei P50E will not bring support for 5G. Now, let’s jump to the Kirin 9000L chipset information that we have collected so far.
HiSilicon Kirin 9000L chipset:
According to the information, the HiSilicon Kirin 9000L chipset design will be similar to Kirin 9000 and 9000E but has reduced GPU and NPU performance. This may be also the reduced version of the Kirin 9000 and 9000E in terms of display and camera performance.
However, it seems to be processed with Samsung’s 5nm EUV process technology. In terms of configuration, the Kirin 9000L’s SoC also has much lower core counts in the GPU section, including an 18-core Mali-G78 CPU, which is 24 and 22 cores on Kirin 9000 and 9000E respectively.
Talking about AI processing, the NPU of the Kirin 9000L only has one large NPU core, while the Kirin 9000 and 9000E equips 2 cores inside the Neural Processing Unit. Further, the Kirin 9000L will come with a reduced clock speed and is clocked at 2.86Ghz.
