Huawei’s latest Kirin 990 flagship chipset will include a version with a built-in 5G modem, as well as offering a speed increase compared to its predecessor, the company announced onstage at IFA 2019 today. The 7-nm processor includes a modem which Huawei says can offer a maximum download speed of 2.3Gbps, and a maximum upload speed of 1.25Gbps, alongside eight ARM Cortex CPU cores.

As well as saving on space, Huawei says that using a single chip should make its phones much more power efficient compared to having both a processor and a separate modem.
