Huawei P20 Pro gets four new elegant colour variants

Huawei P20 Pro gets four new elegant colour variants

A common theme that runs through all of Huawei's latest smartphones is AI, and the Mate 20 Lite is no different with a strong focus on its computer smarts.

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

The Mate 20 Pro will be the first smartphone to hit the market with Huawei's new Kirin 980 processor. The Huawei Mate 20 is set to be the first device to feature it due on 16 October 2018 in London.


Starting from its basic block design, Huawei's the first with the Kirin 980 at two ends. As a result, the chip can be up to 40-percent more energy-efficient or deliver 20-percent better computational performance than the previous solution and should be significantly better than the now used Snapdragon 845 and Exynos 9810, though it remains to be seen how it fares against their upcoming successors. As of now, the company has officially confirmed it to come powered by Kirin 980 octa-core processor. The 980 also has a new, larger NPU.

The Kirin 980 is the first SoC in the world to feature new Cortex-A76 cores, which are 75% more powerful and 58% more efficient than predecessors. This means a faster phone with better battery life, but also quicker app launch times, better multi-tasking and a generally smoother user experience. "Equipped with all-new CPU, GPU and Dual NPU, the Kirin 980 is the ultimate engine to power the next-generation productivity and entertainment applications", Huawei Consumer Business Group CEO, Richard Yu said while announcing the Kirin 980 at IFA 2018. Given the humdrum Apple created with the A11's NPU previous year, we're really looking forward to the company's upcoming launch event next month. Debuting with the Kirin 980 chip, the Mali-G76 offers 46% greater graphics processing power at 178% improved power efficiency over the previous generation, according to Huawei.

The Mali-G76 has an added advantage when it comes to gaming - the AI can intelligently identify gaming workloads and adjust resource allocation accordingly for optimal performance. The GPU will also use Huawei's GPU Turbo technology which can boost the GPU clock under heavy load, providing better gaming performance, Huawei claimed. In addition to the Mate 20 Pro, the Honor Magic 2 will also have the Kirin 980 under the hood.
