It also gets new HDR features, new noise reduction algorithms, better motion tracking, and more.

Chinese smartphone manufacturer Huawei has confirmed to launch the Mate 20 series at a special event in London on October 16.

Getting back to Kirin 980, Huawei says the TSMC-made 7nm chip packs 6.9 billion transistors within a square-centimeter die size, or 1.6 times more than the previous generation.

The Kirin 980 will be seen shortly on the upcoming Huawei flagships later this year. 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.

When it comes to video, the Kirin 980 allows the camera to shoot with 33 per cent less delay.

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. The Mali-G76 utilises AI to intelligently identify gaming workloads and adjust resource allocation for optimal gaming performance.

The Dual NPU also increases the on-device Ai experience as it offers double the processing power and intelligence.

In addition to sheer performance, Huawei is also focusing on AI, with dual NPU units which are claimed to provide up to 220 percent faster image recognition, allowing it to recognize up to 4,500 images per minute.

Huawei brings LTE Cat.21 to the Kirin 980, with download speeds of up to 1.4Gbps as well as new WiFi with the peak 1,732Mbps download. 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.

While the P20 Pro is impressive, Huawei still hasn't released a phone with the specs or price point to really challenge the likes of Samsung and Apple in the premium mobile space. We're looking forward to getting our hands on the first Kirin 980-powered device when it arrives this October.

Huawei has had a busy day at IFA.

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.
