Huawei P20 Pro gets four new elegant colour variants

Huawei Kirin 980 is the World’s First Commercial 7nm Chipset, To Power Mate 20 Series and Honor Magic 2

Huawei's flagship Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro are tipped to launch in October, but the Chinese firm has made a decision to get ahead of itself with the introduction of the entry-level Mate 20 Lite.

On October 16, which is apparently exactly one week after the launch of Google's Pixel 3 flagship, Huawei will reveal the Mate 20 Pro to the public.

Moving towards the Kirin 980's third core cluster, the processor utilizes four of ARM's Cortex A55's cores that are clocked at 1.80GHz.

In addition to improvements on the CPU and the GPU side, the Kirin 980 will also support LPDDR4X 2133MHz memory, which are likely to further boost performance. It offers improved efficiency, connectivity and Dual NPU AI processing power. The phone is powered by the HiSilicon Kirin 710 SoC and it ships with Artificial Intelligent (AI) features as well.

Starting from its basic block design, Huawei's the first with the Kirin 980 at two ends.

Using this technology, the Kirin 980 packs 6.9 billion transistors within a 1cm die, delivering 20% more performance and 40% more power efficiency compared to chips which used the 10nm manufacturing process. Yu says the Kirin 980 will outperform the Snapdragon 845 and use less power while doing it.

According to Huawei, the Kirin 980 is able to achieve a 75% performance gain over the Kirin 970.

The Kirin 980 is also the first in the world to include the Mali-G76 GPU, which is 46% faster and 178% more efficient than the previous generation. Goes to show how much of a difference a new manufacturing process can make.

Huawei announced today that it has sold 10 million units total between the P20 Pro and the standard P20. The Kirin 980 doubles down on that with a dual neural processing unit. The Kirin 980 can apparently recognise up to 4,600 images per minute, which is up 120 per cent compared to Kirin 970.

Kirin 980 adopts a new pipeline dedicated to processing video captures, allowing the camera module to shoot videos with 33 percent shorter delay, Huawei informed.

To deliver the best connectivity to users of Kirin 980-powered devices, Huawei integrated the world's first modem supporting LTE Cat.21 with a peak download speed of 1.4Gbps.
