Compared to the previous generation 10nm process, the 7nm process delivers 20% improved SoC performance and 40% more efficiency, said Huawei which surpassed Apple to become the second-largest global smartphone seller behind Samsung in the second quarter of this year.

In addition to improvements on the CPU and the GPU side, the Kirin 980 will also support LPDDR4X 2133MHz memory, which are likely to further boost performance.

Huawei believes that the Kirin 980 will improve Neural AI performance by up to 134% and bring down power consumption by 88%. The synergy between the Dual NPU results in an image recognition capability that is greater than the sum of two-the Kirin 980 can recognise up to 4,600 images per minute, up 120 per cent compared to Kirin 970. This will allow devices powered by the Kirin 980 to access significant power-efficient image processing capabilities. Huawei has designed the Kirin 980 to be 5G ready by building in compatibility with their Balong 5000 5G modem standalone chip, devices that include the Balong 500 modem will be 5G ready at launch.

Lastly, Kirin 980 adopts a new pipeline dedicated to processing video captures, allowing the camera module to shoot videos with a 33% shorter delay, Huawei informed.

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.
