Huawei confident the Kirin 980 will outpace Apple's A12 Bionic

Silver Huawei Mate 20 makes appearance in new hands-on video

A more affordable solution could be coming from Huawei in the form of the Kirin 980 SoC, which, according to the Chinese company, should be faster than the A12 Bionic. The new iPhone XS integrates the A12 Bionic chips, and these are now the fastest smartphone processors on the market, but the prices for the new iPhone XS models is, as always, too high.

Huawei said that Mate 20 lite users will also receive extended usage with its 3750mAh battery that rivals most smartphones available on the South African market. Even though both A12 Bionic and Kirin 980 chipsets include the same number of transistors - 6.9 billion, Huawei says that its processor is 75% faster than the previous generation, while the GPU should be "only" 46% faster.

Huawei also chose to provide some efficiency metrics; the Kirin 980's processor is 57 more efficient than the processor running in the previous-generation SoC, and a 178 percent efficiency claim when it comes to the GPU.


Power efficiency is 57% better on the processor and an extremely impressive 178% better on the the GPU. Though the Kirin 980 is not the company's first 5G SoC, the OEM has doubled its efforts in making its flagship silicon a lot faster. The Kirin 980 now supports real time video processing and can identify 4,500 images per minute. Also, the Kirin 980 is the world's first chipset to tout a Cat.

We're not quite sure what metric Huawei has used to predict this, but we'll definitely make sure to compare the two once the Mate 20 Pro is out. We're looking forward to testing it out when its released on the new Mate series mid October.
