Huawei Mate 20 Confirmed Running on Kirin 980
When we passed by the halfway mark of 2018, many people knew we had a lot of interesting smartphones to look forward to. One of those interesting smartphones is the Huawei Mate 20 series, and we just got to know what could be the juiciest detail about it at the moment.
According to a report on Android Authority, the Huawei Mate 20 series of phablets will be running on the Kirin 980 chipset, which is being touted as the first commercially available 7nm smartphone chipset.
According to the CEO of Huawei CBG Richard Yu, they are planning to unveil the Kirin 980 at IFA 2018, which will then truly be marked as the first commercially available 7nm chip in the world. He also mentioned that the Kirin 980 will indeed be powering the Mate 20 series.
When chipsets move to a smaller manufacturing process, it usually results in a more efficient and powerful chipset. In this sense, we’re expected to see a boost in overall performance as well as longer battery life and reduced heat output.
In an interesting note, they’ve also discussed about rumours on the Kirin 980’s specifications, thus giving people an idea as to how the Mate 20 will perform. It allegedly has an octa-core Cortex-A76 and Cortex-A55 along with their own in-house GPU.
While the claims of the in-house GPU may be tough to believe at the moment, at least we had some interesting information to take away from all of this. For now, just know that it will be a 7nm chipset, and that the Huawei Mate 20 will be coming sometime in October 2018.
