"The Huawei Kirin 980 is a further demonstration of our commitment to improve our customers' experience" Said Larking Huang, Managing Director of Huawei Australia Consumer Business Group.

Apple is reportedly using a 7-nanometer process to build its upcoming A12 mobile processor, and it just announced a press event for September 12 where it's expected to unveil new iPhones - including the iPhone XS and XS Plus - powered by that new chip. The Kirin 980's DSU features 4MB of L3 Cache.

The 7nm process also delivers a 20 per cent improvement on performance and a 40 per cent improvement on efficiency compared to the 10nm process.

Huawei will launch its next-generation high-end phones, the Mate 20 and the Mate 20 Pro (with quite possibly a Porsche edition as well) on October 16.

The Huawei Mate 20 Lite boasts a large 6.3-inch, 19.5:9, full HD+ display, Kirin 710 chipset, 4GB of RAM, dual rear cameras (20MP+2MP), dual front cameras (24MP+2MP) and a 3,750mAh battery.

According to Huawei, the Kirin 980 is able to achieve a 75% performance gain over the Kirin 970. The video of the Snapdragon 845 gaming session looked fine, but things were noticeably smoother on the Kirin 980. Successor to last year's Kirin 970 SoC, the new chipset brings big improvements to performance and efficiency.

Furthermore, the Kirin 980 supports common AI frameworks such as Caffee, Tensorflow and Tensorflow Lite, and provides a suite of tools that simplify the difficulty of engineering on-device AI, allowing developers to easily tap into the leading processing power of the dual NPU.

As GPU workloads start to increase, manufacturers are finding it easier to relegate image recognition tasks to separate cores and NPUs are definitely here to stay. The Kirin 980 can recognize 4,500 images in a minute, which is a 120% improvement over last year's chipset.

The integrated graphics processor has been updated to the latest Mali-G76 GPU bringing along a 46% improvement in processing power with an unbelievable 178% improvements in power efficiency. The ISP utilizes multi-pass noise reduction without scrubbing away image details, improved motion tracking and a new pipeline dedicated to processing video for 33 percent shorter delay.

Side-by-side photos - first of a Ferris wheel, then of a stadium - drove this point home.

The wireless modem in the Kirin 980 is the first to support the LTE Cat 21 standard, allowing up to 1.4Gbps throughput utilising carrier aggregation across multiple bands. There's also a faster Wi-Fi chipset, so getting data to your phone quickly shouldn't be an issue. The Cortex A76 is a one of a kind and mark ARM's first crucial step at trying to hit two birds with one stone, or should we say, core.
