Succession
K3

Kirin is a family of 32-bit and 64-bit mobile ARM performance SoCs introduced by HiSilicon in 2014 as a successor to the K3 series.

Overview[edit]

HiSilicon has always been the integrated circuit arm of Huawei, developing various ICs and embedded microprocessors for their consumer electronics. It wasn't until 2008 with the introduction of the K3 family that HiSilicon started focusing on developing in-house high-performance microprocessors for the mobile market. In late 2013 HiSilicon introduced the Kirin family which featured their flagship high-performance mobile microprocessors found in their high-end phones and tablets.

Over the last couple of years, the Kirin family grew to include various mid-range performance models in addition to their high-end performance flagship processors. Latest models often utilize ARM's latest cores fabricated on TSMC's latest technology node.
