Huawei also said the device will be the first smartphone with its new Kirin 980 chipset. The company’s new chipset, announced at IFA too, packs a 7nm manufacturing process. But the Chinese brand has delivered plenty of other upgrades on paper.
The Kirin 980 offers a dual NPU for improved AI smarts, as well as a Mali-G76 MP10 GPU. But the company has also upgraded its CPU cores and changed the layout, offering two Cortex-A76 CPU cores at 2.6Ghz, two Cortex-A76 cores at 1.92Ghz, and four Cortex-A55 cores at 1.8Ghz.
There’s no official confirmation of any other Mate 20 specs, but rumors suggest we can expect a 4,200mAh battery, and a triple-camera setup.
