Huawei’s Kirin 1020 is expected to be the first SoC from the Chinese giant’s chip manufacturing division to be made on the 5nm node. Of course, development on this silicon is a costly process, with a fresh report claiming that despite the A14 Bionic being fabricated on the same node, the Kirin 1020 will be more expensive to make.

A brand new report from a tipster who goes by the name ‘Mobile chip master’ on Chinese micro-blogging website Weibo claims that the upcoming Kirin 1020, which is reportedly due in October, will be more expensive than the upcoming A14 Bionic, which is also said to be developed on the 5nm process.
