Huawei announced its newest system-on-a-chip, the Kirin 980, which boasts a number of world firsts. It’s the first 7nm mobile processor, the first one built around ARM’s Cortex-A76 CPU and Mali-G76 GPU, the first with a Cat.21 smartphone modem supporting speeds up to 1.4Gbps, and the first chip to support 2,133MHz LPDDR4X RAM.The Kirin 980 spec sheet contains an all-new CPU, GPU and Dual NPU.
The advantages of 7nm fabrication are obvious: smaller transistors mean about 6.9 billion of them can fit within a 1cm2 die size, about 160 percent more than currently available 10nm transistors. What that ultimately means is a 20 percent performance enhancement and a 40 percent increase in power efficiency over the Kirin 970.
With a focus on research and innovation, Huawei is always looking at what’s coming next!
Kirin 980 is the most powerful and intelligent chip ever. Speed, performance and efficiency like never before.

Where we lead others will follow. The future of technology is here - meet the world's first 7nm Mobile AI chipset .Using a trio of core elements to build the future of mobile technology, the #Kirin980 has an all new CPU architecture
The Kirin 980 is the first 7nm mobile processorThe Kirin 980 has an eight-core architecture with two Cortex-A76 2.6GHz “high-performance cores” for demanding tasks, two Cortex-A76 1.92GHz “middle cores” that juggle everyday processes, and four 1.8GHz Cortex-A55 “efficiency cores” that step in for light workloads like music playback.
GPU: Kirin 980
Get your game face on with the #Kirin980. Faster loading, smoother streaming and better power efficiency gives you the advantage over competitors.
The Kirin 980 will feature ARM’s Mali G76MP10 GPU, becoming the first processor with the unit. The Mali G76 represents a massive increase over the G72 and can do much more in a smaller package.The Kirin 980’s G76 will offer a 46% performance boost and a staggering 176% power-efficiency gain over its predecessor.It also features an AI-based clock boosting technology that adapts the GPU and its allocated resources according to the game’s needs
The #Kirin980 can recognise 4,500 images per minute and capture sharper movement without the blur. You can snap and it does the thinking for you.
Huawei has doubled down on its AI processing aspirations, adding a dual NPU (neural processor unit) to the Kirin 980, which performs AI-assisted image recognition tasks at a rate of 4,500 images per minute.Kirin 980 brings Dual NPUs that are faster and smarter. Huawei has primarily focused the processors’ work on image recognition and the upgrades, it suggests, equal to “more than the sum of two.”
#ExperienceSmarter photography.The new Image Signal Processor (ISP) inside the Kirin 980 is all about multi-camera setups as it handles data throughput 46 percent faster than the Kirin 970.
The new dual ISP (image signal processor) in the Kirin 980 is 46 percent faster at camera processing than its predecessor, with a related 23 percent improvement in power efficiency while recording, and 33 percent improvement in latency.The new ISP also brings a new HDR color reproduction technology to boost colors in a realistic way and multi-pass noise reduction to remove artifacts from photos without altering the details.
Travelling by plane, train or car, you can have an uninterrupted connection throughout your whole journey. Combining increased network coverage and enhanced bandwidth - the #Kirin980.
The Kirin 980 will offer the world’s fastest smartphone Wi-Fi speed, clocking in at 1,732Mbps, which is substantially higher than the Snapdragon 845’s best of 866Mbps with a Qualcomm modem or 1083Mbps with a third-party modem.The modem also enables users to seamlessly jump from one carrier to another, regardless of frequency bands.
Taking you a step above the rest. The #Kirin980 gives you higher performance, higher power efficiency and a more compact design.
The 7nm process delivers 20 percent improved SoC performance and 40 percent improved SoC power efficiency.Mali-G76 offers 46 per cent greater graphics processing power at 178 per cent improved power efficiency over the previous generation, according to Huawei.
With a focus on research and innovation, Huawei is always looking at what’s coming next. The #Kirin980 is preparing you for the future of mobile connectivity and 5G.
The modem, which is the first to support to support LTE Cat.21 with the best peak download speeds. Yu said the chipset is 5G ready, though of course this is more future-proofing than of any practical use at this point.
