  • Huawei Kirin 980 is the World’s First Commercial 7nm Chipset, To Power Mate 20 Series and Honor Magic 2

More importantly, however, it had the potential to be the world's first 7nm mobile processor, depending on when it would be released.

"The Kirin 980 is the ultimate engine to power the next-generation productivity and entertainment applications", Yu added. Huawei has taken its showcase at this year's IFA event to make sure the Kirin 980 lived up to this reputation.

Huawei has attracted a lot of attention with its Kirin SoCs, and while it always lagged behind the competition, it appears that the game will soon change with the flagship Kirin 980 SoC, which is the world's first SoC made on TSMC's 7nm manufacturing process.

Huawei's flagship Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro are tipped to launch in October, but the Chinese firm has chose to get ahead of itself with the introduction of the entry-level Mate 20 Lite.

Speaking of standing out, Huawei's building on its NPU with the Kirin 980. Huawei says it uses a flex-scheduling system which distributes tasks among the cores.


"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. The GPU will also use Huawei's GPU Turbo technology which can boost the GPU clock under heavy load, providing better gaming performance, Huawei claimed.

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.

The Kirin 980 also has a new ISP with a 46% increase in performance over last year's model. 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. The idea is, like many less popular smartphone companies, that the Mate 20 Lite offers a premium smartphone experience without any of the annoyingly high pricetags associated with them.

To deliver the best connectivity to users of Kirin 980-powered devices, Huawei integrated the world's first modem supporting LTE Cat.21 with a peak download speed of 1.4Gbps.
