Huawei unveils new flagship 7nm SoC, the Kirin 980

Huawei announces Kirin 980 the world's first 7nm phone chip

When compared to the outgoing Kirin 970, the Kirin 980, which also happens to be the world's first with a Cortex-A76 CPU, delivers 75% improved performance and 58% better power efficiency.

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. Four small cores handle power management, two medium cores provide long-lasting performance and two large cores will turbo-boost a phone and kick in when the most demanding gaming applications are in use. For example, the chip can support real-time video recognition as well as still image recognition. It is AI powered to intelligently identify gaming workload and adjust resource allocation to ensure you get optimal gaming performance.

With dual MPU, it performs AI-assisted image recognition tasks at a rate of 4,500 images per minute.

Compared to the SoC based on 10nm manufacturing process (Snapdragon 845, Kirin 970 SoC, etc.) the Kirin 980 (based on 7nm manufacturing process) can offer up to 20% improved performance and 40% improved efficiency. Successor to last year's Kirin 970 SoC, the new chipset brings big improvements to performance and efficiency, as per the company. The Dual NPU Kirin 980 elevates the On-Device AI experience with greater processing power and intelligence.

Producer Slams NBC for Impeding Weinstein Story: ‘Massive Breach of Journalistic Integrity’

Huawei's next major launch will be the Mate 20 in the next couple of months, with the Huawei P30 not expected to arrive until 2019 - and thanks to Yu's comment we now have confirmation of this. When creating these two unique hues, Huawei once again turned to nature for inspiration. The P20 series will now be available in Morpho Aurora, Pearl White, Golden Brown, and Elegant Black Leather.

The first devices based on Kirin 980 will be smartphones Mate Mate 20 and 20 Pro, which will show in October. Huawei Consumer BG is one of Huawei's three business units and covers smartphones, PC and tablets, wearables and cloud services, etc. Huawei's global network is built on nearly 30 years of expertise in the telecom industry and is dedicated to delivering the latest technological advances to consumers around the world. HUAWEI has been operating in Canada since 2008, and now employs over 800 people. HUAWEI is committed to providing leading-edge technology to Canadian operators, customers and consumers.
