Huawei also claims the Kirin 990 will be World’s first 5G SoC, however, yesterday Samsung unveiled the Exynos 980 that also comes with an integrated 5G modem. We expect the Chinese chipset to be first on the market since the Huawei Mate 30 is arriving in two weeks time.
Interestingly enough, Qualcomm is also hosting a 5G-focused keynote at IFA 2019, but it is after the Huawei announcement. We hope it will be an early sneak peek of the next flagship Qualcomm Snapdragon chip, also with an integrated 5G modem. This competition can only mean good for the end consumer because great products are born in the rivalry.
