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

The first smartphone powered by the new Kirin 980 SoC will be the Huawei Mate 20 series, which will launch on October 16th in London. We get more renders for the Huawei Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro, both featuring triple cameras and will be launched in October. The 980 also has a new, larger NPU. The Kirin 980 will feature ARM's Mali G76MP10 GPU, becoming the first processor with the unit. It offers improved efficiency, connectivity and Dual NPU AI processing power.

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. However, Huawei have clocked two at 2.6GHz and another two at 1.92GHz to make up these Kirin 980 clusters.

Chinese tech giant Huawei on Friday unveiled the world's first "5G solution-ready" commercial 7nm (nanometre) chipset Kirin 980 which is believed to be the most powerful smartphone SoC (system-on-a-chip) equipped with Artificial Intelligence (AI) capabilities.

Thoughts? Let us know what you think in the comments section below and stay tuned. Yu says the Kirin 980 will outperform the Snapdragon 845 and use less power while doing it.

Robinson and Franklin grew up together in Detroit . "We used to talk about that - we saw a lot of soldiers go". Ellis III , serves as pastor at the Greater Grace Temple, where the funeral will be held", the report noted.

While the P20 Pro is impressive, Huawei still hasn't released a phone with the specs or price point to really challenge the likes of Samsung and Apple in the premium mobile space.

The Mali-G76 has an added advantage when it comes to gaming - the AI can intelligently identify gaming workloads and adjust resource allocation accordingly for optimal performance. In addition, Kirin 980 utilises the Multi-pass noise reduction solution that accurately removes artefacts without scrubbing away image details, resulting in better quality on images taken in low-light scenarios.

For developers, the 980 supports common AI frameworks such as Caffee, Tensorflow and Tensorflow Lite. We've seen a few leather-backed phones in the past from the likes of LG, but this is a first for Huawei.

The European Image and Sound Association has named the Huawei P20 Pro the EISA Best Smartphone 2018-2019, citing that the device is "the most advanced, innovative and technically superior smartphone ever".
