Also, the Kirin 980 is the first ever chipset to support LPDDR4X at 2133MHz and a dual NPU chip which Huawei calls as Dual-brain Power which is double the capacity compared to the previously used single NPU chip in Kirin 970 and it is 120 percent faster too.

Starting September 6, HUAWEI's Twilight P20 Pro will be available to Canadians at Bell, Rogers, TELUS and SaskTel. This solution designates the large high-performance cores to handle immediate, intensive workloads; the large, high-efficiency cores to provide sustained performance; and ultra-efficiency cores to tackle everyday, light activities with extreme power efficiency. The P20 Pro and its three cameras, coupled with the Kirin 970, are already an unbelievable combination, so anything that improves image quality could make future Huawei phones unassailable on the picture front in future. The GPU comes with clock boosting technology that will adjust the resource allocation depending on the requirement of an app or a game. The smaller process allows the chipset to cram 6.9 billion transistors into it. Huawei claims that its new 7nm-process chipset helps delivers 20% improved SoC performance and 40% efficiency. The HiSilicon Kirin 980 is the latest chipset from the company, which is the successor to the HiSilicon Kirin 970 SoC. It goes by the tagline of the most powerful and intelligent processor ever. The new ISP also received improvements as part of the support for HDR (contrast control for selecting objects in different image regions) and motion tracking (recognition accuracy increased to 97,4%). The Kirin 980 also comes with the brand new Mali G76 GPU. Efficiency and power both packed together into 7nm chipset, Kirin 980 will be the Chinese OEM's next big thing. For the benchmark scores, you'll have to wait till October 16 when Huawei will officially launch the Mate 20 series smartphones in London. When creating these two unique hues, Huawei once again turned to nature for inspiration.

The next-generation AI experience is around the corner.
