The Kirin 980 is also the first SoC to embed ARM Cortex-A76 cores, which are 75% more powerful and 58% more efficient compared to their previous generation. The all-new Mali-G76 GPU results in 46% better performance & 178% better power efficiency than the Kirin 970's GPU. Consumers in Europe will be able to get the P20 and P20 Pro smartphones in the new colors starting from the 5 of September. Out of these eight cores, two are "super cores", two are "large cores", and, the remaining four are efficiency cores. For example, the chip can support real-time video recognition as well as still image recognition. Mali-G76 also features an innovative clock boosting technology that utilizes AI to intelligently identify gaming workloads and adjust resource allocation for optimal gaming performance.

The Kirin 980 also comes with improvements on the connectivity front. For instance, the Kirin 980 SoC can recognise 4,600 images per minute, 120 percent higher than the previous generation. Huawei says that this Kirin 980 SoC, which is based on 7nm fabrication process, comes with 20% performance improvements and 40% improvements on power efficiency when compared with 10nm process.

Usually, the Mate lineup is the one to debut a new Kirin chipset, but this year, Huawei's sub-brand, Honor and the Honor Magic 2, took the honor of giving us the Kirin 980 chipset for the first time. Moreover, the Kirin chip's enhanced AI helps power efficiency with its accurate and intelligent prediction of load requirements, making it more responsive to the power needs of the user - both when the chip needs to power up and when it needs to slow down to save energy.

In pursuit of the best smartphone photography experience, Huawei integrated its proprietary fourth-generation ISP into the SoC.

Kirin 980 has also adopted a new pipeline dedicated to processing video captures, allowing the camera module to shoot videos with 33% shorter delay.

Huawei's next major launch will be the Mate 20 in the next couple of months, with the Huawei P30 not expected to arrive until 2019 - and thanks to Yu's comment we now have confirmation of this. Additionally, the Kirin 980 supports carrier aggregation, even across frequency bands. The P20 series will now be available in Morpho Aurora, Pearl White, Golden Brown, and Elegant Black Leather.

During a press conference today at IFA 2018, Huawei confirmed it'll be announcing the new Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro at an event on October 16th.

Huawei has not revealed any more information about the device.
