Huawei is coming with its two new products at a launch event on October 16, 2018. Huawei Mate 20 with Kirin 980 has been spotted at Geekbench surpassing the Android competition with a considerable margin. The new chipset on the Mate 20 has made it the most powerful Android device in the market. Although, it has scored pretty well against Android devices but fails to impress against the A12 Bionic chip with a little margin on the new generation Apple iPhone Xs. Additionally, it put questions to the Huawei’s claim of Kirin 980 performing better than Apple Bionic A12 chipset. Well, the facts are yet to be verified as Kirin 980 is not officially available for the public.
Huawei Kirin 980 powered Mate 20 has managed to score 3390 pts on a single core test while gained 10318 pts on a multiple core test. The new chipset has managed to score pretty well than its predecessor Kirin 970. It has also outclassed the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 in terms of performance if we compare it with the Geekbench’s single core and multiple core tests. In similar a kind of analysis at AnTuTu benchmarks, Kirin 980 scored 356918 pts which is a way ahead of the Snapdragon 845 powered Galaxy Note 9 and Xiaomi black shark’s 280000+ pts.
The company’s Consumer Business Group CEO Richard Yu has said that the new Kirin 980 will have dedicated NPU unit for better AI capabilities, powerful GPU and Cortex-A75 high-performance processor cores.
