Huawei all set to launch Mate 20 series on 16 October

That's right, it's the Huawei Mate 20 Pro, the high-end handset of the Mate 20 series that has appeared in plenty of leaks so far.

It's the world's first commercial SoC that has been manufactured with TSMC's 7nm process.

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.

Huawei has made a decision to keep its eagerly awaited Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro under wraps for a little while longer as it prepares for an exclusive event in London next month. The result is an SoC that is claimed to deliver 20 per cent improved performance and 40 per cent improved efficiency over its predecessor, aka the Kirin 970. The module hence sports two super-big Cortex-A76 cores, another pair of big Cortex-A76 cores, and a quad-core Cortex-A55 configuration.

"The Kirin 980 will be used in smartphones and tablets". Graphics are also handled by a new ARM-designed Mali-G76 processor that promises a 46 percent improvement over the previous generation.

The Estonian doubled Halep's victor total in the first set - 13 to 6 - and also dropped just five points on serve overall. She never lost control of the match, even in the second set when Halep appeared to get into more of a rhythm.

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

Huawei officially launched their latest Kirin 980 chipset today at IFA 2018 as the world's first 7nm chipset. Given the humdrum Apple created with the A11's NPU a year ago, we're really looking forward to the company's upcoming launch event next month.

Multi-pass noise reduction is utilised to remove remove artifacts without a loss of image detail in low-light images. Mali-G76 also features an innovative clock boosting technology that utilises AI to intelligently identify gaming workloads and adjust resource allocation for optimal gaming performance.

Kirin 980 supports common AI frameworks such as Caffee, Tensorflow and Tensorflow Lite, and provides a suite of tools that simplifies the difficulty of engineering on-device AI, allowing developers to easily tap into the leading processing power of the dual NPU.

Also, there is no fingerprint scanner visible at the mean, meaning that Huawei may employ an in-display scanner, just as the one spotted on the Mate RS Porsche Design. In addition to the Mate 20 Pro, the Honor Magic 2 will also have the Kirin 980 under the hood.
