Huawei is on the verge of launching the fresh Huawei Mate 20 Pro with the all-new Kirin 980 processor. It is scheduled to release at an event on the 12th of October in London. Nicely, before that Huawei has mentioned that it’s Kirin 980 will be better than the Apple’12 Bionic Cpu. Huawei Kirin 980 and Apple A12 Bionic are the only processors which are in the world on the 7nm process. Qualcomm will uncover its version of the 7nm processor, Snapdragon 855 by the close of this year.
Huawei Kirin 980 is faster, intelligent and efficient than its predecessor, Kirin 970. After 3 years of hard-work, Huawei has designed the Kirin 980 featuring 6.9 billion transistors making it 75% faster than the Kirin 970. It is 57% more energy efficient, 75% faster and gives 178% far more functionality than the Kirin 970 GPU. While Apple carriers the exact quantity of transistors with good improvement in efficiency and functionality.
It appears Huawei is quite serious this period as they have launched industry’s initially SoC to be equipped with 2 neural processing units (NPUs) and its Dual-NPU setup. It will help Kirin 980 to handle AI tasks with bigger affordability, allowing developers to bring richer AI experiences. It will carry dual ISP (image signal processor) for much better image processing with the multiple camera sensors.
In connectivity, it supports LTE Category 21 promising the downlink of 1.4Gbps. In addition, it carries the Hi1103 Wi-Fi module, proved to be the world’s fastest WiFi chip supporting the download speed of 1.7GBPS. There’s a dual dual-frequency (L1 and L5) GPS having well-defined precision.
Additionally, Kirin 980-can recognise 500 images in just six seond. It can moreover identify multiple subjects in a video in real-time. Huawei will start testing the 4.5G networks in India using Kirin 980 very soon.
