After the test, the top platforms of Huawei, Qualcomm, Samsung and MediaTek, China Mobile awarded the SoC Kirin 990 the title of the best chip with 5G support. Kirin 990 by a small margin beat Snapdragon 855+
Note that in the case of the Qualcomm platform, the source indicates that it was used together with the Snapdragon X50 modem, but for Kirin 990 they did not indicate anything like this.
That’s because it is about the SoC Kirin 990, which not only received the integrated Balong 5000 5G modem, but also differs from the usual Kirin 990 in a number of other parameters.
As you can see, in most tests, the Samsung platform showed the worst result, and the result of the Helio M70 is somewhere in the middle. We’ll clarify that all these are tests of the modems themselves, that is, the performance of the CPU and GPU does not matter here.
