According to Huawei, the HiSilicon Kirin 980 is the most smartphone SoC (system-on-chip) beating the likes of Snapdragon 845 and Apple A11 Bionic chipset.

"The Kirin 980 is the ultimate engine to power the next-generation productivity and entertainment applications", Yu added, as reported by IANS.

Huawei, at the IFA 2018 event in Berlin launched the world's first commercial 7nm chipset and the successor the Kirin 970 SoC, namely, the Kirin 980. While the Kirin 970 was the world's first SoC to feature a neural processing unit, its successor comes with a Dual-NPU meant to elevate its on-device artificial intelligence computing, with a comprehensive image signal processor designed by HiSilicon also being part of the package.

The very highly anticipated Huawei Mate 20 is finally getting some official attention from Huawei after the announcement of the core of the phone - the Kirin 980 processor. The 980 also has a new, larger NPU.

AI is seemingly synonymous with Huawei and the Kirin 980 packs in even more punch when it comes to on-device - local - AI tasks. Huawei says the first Kirin 980-powered device will arrive in October.

Huawei has also improved the graphics capabilities of its mobile processor by including the powerful Mali-G76 GPU on its Kirin 980 chipset.

The Kirin 980 also has a new ISP with a 46% increase in performance over last year's model.
