  • Huawei announces Kirin 980 the world's first 7nm phone chip

"This year, we've designed an all-round powerhouse that not only features outstanding AI capabilities, but also brings cutting-edge raw performance to consumers", said Yu. "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". Created by its subsidiary HiSilicon, the Kirin 980 is also the first-ever chip to be built on the 7nm process node, with the technology in question coming from TSMC.

Compared to the previous generation 10nm process, the 7nm process delivers 20% improved SoC performance and 40% more efficiency, said Huawei which surpassed Apple to become the second-largest global smartphone seller behind Samsung in the second quarter of this year. Huawei projects that it will improve on that of the Kirin 970 by up to 134%. while using 88% less power. The power-saving Cortex-A55 cores are clocked at 1.8GHz and handle simple everyday tasks.

The Kirin 980 is also the first in the world to include the Mali-G76 GPU, which is 46% faster and 178% more efficient than the previous generation.

Huawei on Friday officially announced the Kirin 980, what's claimed to be the world's most powerful system-on-chip for smartphones and tablets. The Kirin 980 can apparently recognise up to 4,600 images per minute, which is up 120 per cent compared to Kirin 970. Around front, the new handset has a 24MP "Fusion Pixel" camera with an aperture of f/2.0 that's also coupled with a 2MP camera.

Cardiff vs Arsenal, Premier League
Arsenal will look to build on their win over West Ham when they take on Cardiff at the Cardiff City Stadium on Sunday afternoon. They prefer their orange juice fresh". "To be more competitive we want to be organised with and without the ball".

For better optics, Huawei integrated its proprietary fourth-generation ISP into the SoC.

Lastly, Kirin 980 adopts a new pipeline dedicated to processing video captures, allowing the camera module to shoot videos with a 33% shorter delay, Huawei informed. Another new feature of the ISP is improved motion tracking.

Also included in the platform is a 4G LTE chip that can deliver speeds of up to 1.4Gbps, or the world's first modem to support LTE Cat.21. The photos shot by the Kirin 980-powered device captured sharper detail than the ones photographed by the Snapdragon 845: you were still able to make out the words on signs even in the dark. As seen with Huawei in recent times, the Kirin 980 boasts of numerous Artificial Intelligence (AI) capabilities.
