Huawei's Kirin 980 is with us and it's officially the world's first 7nm smartphone processor. This is their large screen smartphone lineup and it will succeed the current Mate 10 series while carrying over the LEICA triple-camera setup from its current P20 Pro. Earlier at IFA 2018, Honor teased the Honor Magic 2 smartphone which will also pack the new Kirin 980 SoC, but unfortunately, there is no word on the launch date. No further details were mentioned but performance will definitely take centre stage especially when it comes to AI. The Kirin 980 is also the first SoC to embed Cortex-A76 cores, which are 75% more powerful and 58% more efficient compared to their previous generation. However, the Kirin 980's actual worth may be defined when it comes up against a Snapdragon counterpart in real-world tests.
"The Kirin 980 will be used in smartphones and tablets". In tandem with Huawei's Flex-Scheduling technology the Kirin 980 SoC can automatically "designate the high-performance cores to handle immediate, intensive workloads, the high-efficiency cores to provide sustained performance, and ultra-efficiency cores to tackle every day, light activities with extreme power efficiency". But the Kirin 980 finally makes up for all of this and Huawei should be proud.
Huawei announces its Kirin 980 having more AI power
Debuting with the Kirin 980 chip, 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 last year's Kirin 970, Huawei introduced a built-in neural processor to its chipset. The synergy between the Dual NPU results in an image recognition capability that is greater than the sum of two-the Kirin 980 can recognise up to 4,600 images per minute, up 120 per cent compared to Kirin 970.

Three Released From Jail in New Mexico Compound Case
The judge in the New Mexico Muslim compound case issued another decision Wednesday that has resulted in public outrage. District Judge Emilio Chavez reportedly said that prosecutors did not move fast enough, according to the state's laws.
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. There's also a faster Wi-Fi chipset, so getting data to your phone quickly shouldn't be an issue. The Cortex A76 is a one of a kind and mark ARM's first crucial step at trying to hit two birds with one stone, or should we say, core.
