As graphics in mobile games have become more and more sophisticated in recent years, Huawei has integrated the Mali-G76 GPU (graphics processing unit) into the Kirin 980 to deliver improved gaming experiences.

At the IFA 2018, Huawei introduced the Kirin 980 SoC.

But a bit about the Kirin 980 first. It's the world's first commercial 7nm SoC and that's a big deal if you care about speed and battery life. Let us know in the comments if you're looking forward to the launch! The cameras will also support real-time HDR previews and slow-motion capture via 480fps video.

Kirin 980 adopts a new pipeline dedicated to processing video captures, allowing the camera module to shoot videos with 33 percent shorter delay, Huawei informed. The smartphone also comes with AI features for online shopping, noise assistant, smart gallery and more. Yu says the Kirin 980 will outperform the Snapdragon 845 and use less power while doing it. The new colors of the P20 Pro are made to complete your outfit and thats why the choice is either Brown or Black - because these are the two colors that can be universally matched with any apparel.

The platform also manufactured using the super-efficient 7nm process, which means that Huawei has been able to pack 6.9 billion transistors on a 1cm square. As a result, the chip can be up to 40-percent more energy-efficient or deliver 20-percent better computational performance than the previous solution and should be significantly better than the now used Snapdragon 845 and Exynos 9810, though it remains to be seen how it fares against their upcoming successors.

The Kirin 980 is also notably the world's first processor built around ARM's Cortex-A76 CPU and Mali-G76 GPU. The Kirin 980 can apparently recognise up to 4,600 images per minute, which is up 120 per cent compared to Kirin 970.

The significant upgrades offered by the Kirin 980 definitely has me curious about what Huawei has planned for the Mate 20. Today Huawei has announced a brand new phone for people to buy.

Express.co.uk awarded the Huawei P20 Pro top marks as we lauded the "stunning flagship". We've seen a few leather-backed phones in the past from the likes of LG, but this is a first for Huawei.
