IFA 2018: Huawei Mate 20 Lite with four cameras launched

Huawei Mate 20 Lite will be available first in the United Kingdom from September 5 GBP 379 Rs 34,900 approximately.

Huawei's Kirin 980 is the world's first 7nm chipset which uses an 8-core CPU design with 2x high-performance Cortex-A76 cores and 2x power-efficient Cortex-A76 cores. Huawei Mate 20 Lite is powered by an octa-core HiSilicon Kirin 710 processor, coupled with Mali-G51 GPU.

Huawei has just taken to the stage at IFA 2018 to introduce the Kirin 980, the system on a chip (SoC) that it says will bring about the next evolution of mobile AI. 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. For fans of chip architecture, the 980 features two big 2.66-GHz A76 cores to handle turbo performance, while two middle 1.92-GHz A76 cores focus on long-lasting performance; the remaining four Cortex-A55 cores focus on power efficiency.

"The Kirin 980 will be used in smartphones and tablets". Huawei projects that it will improve on that of the Kirin 970 by up to 134%. while using 88% less power.

"The Kirin 980 is the ultimate engine to power the next-generation productivity and entertainment applications", Yu added, as reported by IANS.

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 Mali-G76 utilises AI to intelligently identify gaming workloads and adjust resource allocation for optimal gaming performance. That performance also tops both the Snapdragon 845 and Apple's A11 Bionic chip, according to Huawei.

The Kirin 980 is also the world's first SoC to pack a Cat.21 smartphone modem capable of achieving speeds up to 1.4Gbps. In addition to the Mate 20 Pro, the Honor Magic 2 will also have the Kirin 980 under the hood.

The Huawei P20 Pro is the flagship phone that you have probably never heard of, if you live in the United States, and the phone that you have likely seen in ads and in people's hands pretty much everywhere else.
