The power-saving Cortex-A55 cores are clocked at 1.8GHz and handle simple everyday tasks. There is also the new dual NPU chipset termed "Dual-Brain Power" that is about 120% faster than the NPU in the Kirin 970. No word on the fully-fledged Mate 20 just yet, but if last year's Mate 10 launch is anything to go by the Mate 20 Lite is the precursor to a larger device that has confirmed for announcement on 16th October.

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

Huawei's flagship Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro are tipped to launch in October, but the Chinese firm has made a decision to get ahead of itself with the introduction of the entry-level Mate 20 Lite. The company began Friday by hosting a keynote address at IFA 2018, during which it announced the new Kirin 980 SoC. Huawei says it uses a flex-scheduling system which distributes tasks among the cores. 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.

The Kirin 980 has a total of 6.9 billion transistors and will be mass-produced by Taiwan's TSMC.

He said he was taken aback by the extent of the decision, but is grateful the court "stood on the right side of history". Vancouver Mayor Gregor Robertson shared his fellow mayor's conviction that the court ruling is "monumental".

The Kirin 980 is also notably the world's first processor built around ARM's Cortex-A76 CPU and Mali-G76 GPU. Mali-G76 also features an innovative clock boosting technology that utilises AI to intelligently identify gaming workloads and adjust resource allocation for optimal gaming performance.

With the Kirin 980, Huawei's introduced its best smartphone processor in recent history. The ISP utilizes multi-pass noise reduction without scrubbing away image details, improved motion tracking and a new pipeline dedicated to processing video for 33 percent shorter delay.

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. The idea is, like many less popular smartphone companies, that the Mate 20 Lite offers a premium smartphone experience without any of the annoyingly high pricetags associated with them.

While the Kirin 980 is not a 5G chip, it's the first in the world to have a mode with LTE Category 21 support, thus being capable of delivering 1.4Gbps download speeds when connected to the right infrastructure.
