A few days ago, someone disclosed the adaptation process of Hongmeng OS on smart phones on Weibo, mainly starting from the chips on the phones, covering Kirin 9000 to Kirin 710, which has attracted widespread attention.
Of course, in addition to Huawei’s Hongmeng OS, the outside world is also paying attention to the upcoming Huawei Mate 40 mobile phone. Some people even said in the comments that the Mate 40 phone may be equipped with Hongmeng OS 2.0 when it is released-which is a bit too pretentious.
Hongmeng OS is undoubtedly worth looking forward to, but on smart phones, it is really in a hurry and can’t come.
Hongmeng OS adaptation plan is exposed, excluding Kirin 970 model
On October 3, the digital blogger “Courage Digital King” exposed the Hongmeng OS adaptation process, which mainly refers to the adaptation of smart phones. Judging from the content of Weibo, the blogger has been following Huawei and Honor for a long time, and he has some internal connections among Huawei, so he has a certain degree of credibility.
The adaptation process in the revelation is mainly distinguished from the SoC processor, the core device of the smartphone. Specifically:
The first batch is Kirin 9000
The second batch is Kirin 990 5G
The third batch is Kirin 990 4G (partial), Kirin 985 and Kirin 820 (partial);
The fourth batch is Kirin 820 (partial), Kirin 980 and Kirin 990 4G (partial) fourth batch;
Finally, Kirin 810 and Kirin 710 (partial).
From the perspective of Huawei’s Kirin chip product system, this revelation is reasonable.
The Kirin 9000 is a Kirin chip that Huawei has publicly announced, but has not released specific information or publicly sold it; what can be confirmed is that it is manufactured using TSMC’s 5nm process and will be carried in the upcoming Huawei Mate 40 series of smartphones. .
The first batch of adaptations to it is not surprising.
In addition to the Kirin 9000, the Kirin 9 series are adapted to the Kirin 990 series (including 5G/4G), the Kirin 985 and the Kirin 980; among them, the Kirin 985 is a mid-to-high-end Kirin chip launched in 2020, and the Kirin 990 series is The flagship chip of 2019, Kirin 980 is the flagship chip of 2018-they all use the TSMC 7nm process, but there are first and second generations.
As for the 2017 Kirin 970 using the 10nm process, it has not been supported.
Looking at the Kirin 8 series, there are two chips in the adaptation plan. Among them, Kirin 820 is a Kirin chip launched in March this year, positioned as a mid-range; Kirin 810 was released last year, it was first equipped with Huawei’s self-developed Da Vinci architecture; both also use TSMC’s 7nm process technology.
The last is the 7-series Kirin 710, which was released in July 2018 and is built using TSMC’s 12nm process-the longest released chip and the lowest process technology in the above adaptation plan.
In general, among the Kirin chips involved in the above revelations, Huawei will go back to the adaptation plan, covering the Kirin chips and related models released in 2018 at the earliest, and the minimum processor technology is 12nm.
It should be noted that in Huawei’s (and Honor) smart phone product system, not all models use Kirin chips, and some low-end products use MediaTek and Qualcomm chips. At present, this part of the machine Whether the model will be adapted is not yet known.
In addition, although this revelation involves the relevant Kirin chip, it does not specifically talk about the adaptation time, so for ordinary consumers, the expected value that this revelation can meet is not that high.
Hongmeng is worth looking forward to, but can’t be anxious on smartphones
Hongmeng OS made its first appearance at the 2019 Huawei Developer Conference (HDC); by 2020, the HDC is already Hongmeng OS 2.0.
In fact, Hongmeng OS has made great progress from 1.0 to 2.0.
For example, at the previous Huawei Developer Conference, Huawei Consumer Business Software President Wang Chenglu officially announced the complete platform tool chain of Hongmeng OS, including Hongmeng OS application framework, more than 13,000 APIs, HUAWEI DevEco development tools, Ark compiler and distribution Application.
Of course, Hongmeng 2.0 has also been open sourced, and relevant codes can already be downloaded from official channels.
These can also be regarded as Huawei’s efforts in promoting the migration of smart phones to Hongmeng OS.
From the later situation, including Baidu Maps, Didi, etc., a group of application developers have announced their cooperation with Hongmeng OS through official channels, which also shows that Hongmeng OS is also slowly advancing in application ecology.
In a high-risk environment, it is wise to have one more option.
For Huawei’s smart phone business, at least for now, it is still inseparable from the Android ecosystem. HMS 5.0 is also in full swing; even if it is the alternative Hongmeng OS, it is inseparable from the inheritance of some of the existing development results under the Android application ecosystem , Such as Ark Compiler and HMS.
