It's been less than six months since the release of the P20 series, but Huawei is already planning it's next big thing, the Mate 20 which is launching in London on October 16. No further details were mentioned but performance will definitely take centre stage especially when it comes to AI. The Kirin 980 will feature ARM's Mali G76MP10 GPU, becoming the first processor with the unit. Yu says the Kirin 980 will outperform the Snapdragon 845 and use less power while doing it.
The Kirin 980 will be seen shortly on the upcoming Huawei flagships later this year.
Debuting with the Kirin 980 chip, Mali-G76 offers 46 per cent greater graphics processing power at 178 per cent improved power efficiency over the previous generation, according to Huawei.
As for the rest of the specs, the phone comes with a 6.3-inch 19.5:9 Full HD+ notched display, 3,750mAh battery, Huawei's Kirin 710 processor, fast charging, 480fps slow-mo, face unlock, 4GB of RAM, 64GB of storage, microSD expansion (up to 256GB), a 3.5mm headphone jack, Huawei's Histen 3D Surround Sound system, as well as Android 8.1.
California on the verge of enacting nation's toughest net neutrality law
If things go that far, it's expected to set up a legal challenge by the Republican-led Federal Communications Commission (FCC ). For example, a company could not give free speedy access to its own streaming service but slow down Netflix.
Tropical Storm Florence developing in Atlantic
The first is a tropical wave over the Caribbean that has the potential to move into the Gulf of Mexico by the middle of next week. Met Éireann, Ireland's national forecaster, do not issue long-range forecasts and therefore can not confirm the possible storm.
Two theories about Apple’s mysterious event
The publication stated it had obtained a first look at two of the new devices - the 5.8-inch and 6.5-inch OLED iPhones . Apple has in each of the past six years hosted a press conference in early September to announce a new iPhone.
But a bit about the Kirin 980 first.
With last year's Kirin 970, Huawei introduced a built-in neural processor to its chipset.
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.
Together they can recognise up to 4,600 images per minute, which is 120 per cent more compared to the previous generation.
Side-by-side photos - first of a Ferris wheel, then of a stadium - drove this point home.
Huawei brings LTE Cat.21 to the Kirin 980, with download speeds of up to 1.4Gbps as well as new WiFi with the peak 1,732Mbps download. There's also a faster Wi-Fi chipset, so getting data to your phone quickly shouldn't be an issue. We're looking forward to getting our hands on the first Kirin 980-powered device when it arrives this October.
