As a part of its self-reliant ecosystem, Huawei has developed a dedicated chipset for wearables. It touts to be the world’s first to do so. This will work exclusively for wearables including a new range of Huawei devices such as smartwatches, fitness trackers, wireless earphones, et al.
Huawei Kirin A1 highlights
It runs within the latest Huawei Watch GT2 and FreeBuds 3 earphones. Huawei Kirin A1 is equipped with an advanced Bluetooth 5.1 and BLE 5.1 standards. Thanks to this, there should be lower power consumption. Incidentally, Huawei Watch GT 2018, which was running on a native chip also had a good battery life.
Huawei also bets big on its in-house technologies. For instance, the new chip is based on a dual-channel synchronous transmission, which should offer an enhanced latency and power consumption. Then there are the preloaded Bluetooth Ultra HD codecs, which claims to deliver a maximum bandwidth of 6.5 Mbps, in “perfect scenarios”. Moreover, it can apparently release Bluetooth ultra HD audio up to 2.3 Mbps for an optimal sound experience.
So it seems that the tech giant has crammed a powerful audio processing unit, an ultra-low-power application processor and an independent power management unit, all within a mere 4.3mm*4.4mm canvas.
Huawei has revealed that the chip will be coming to India early next month.
