Huawei says the Corte-A76 cores make the Kirin 980 75 percent more powerful and 58 percent more efficient than the previous generation of Kirin chipsets. The smartphone is expected to be powered by company's mid segment Kirin 710 processor. In addition to being the first 7nm SoC, Huawei said it ticks a couple of other boxes, including the first to use Cortex-A76 cores, the first with Mali G76 GPU, the first with dual NPUs, the first with Cat.21 LTE modem, the first supporting LPDDR4X-2133, the first with up to 1.7Mbps WiFi, and the first with dual ISP. According to Huawei's testing, the Kirin 980 tallied an average frame rate of 59.3 FPS compare to 48.5 FPS for the Snapdragon 845. Running at higher clock speeds compared to the prior generation, Kirin 980 enables quicker app launch times, better multi-tasking and a generally smoother user experience.

The Neural Processing Unit (NPU) first debuted on the Kirin 970 processor is retained and paired with another identical chip for greatly-improved AI performance. The Kirin 980 can apparently recognise up to 4,600 images per minute, which is up 120 per cent compared to Kirin 970.

Kirin 980 adopts a new pipeline dedicated to processing video captures, allowing the camera module to shoot videos with 33 percent shorter delay, Huawei informed. Additionally, the Kirin 980 supports carrier aggregation, even across frequency bands. 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.
