Huawei has confirmed that the new Kirin 980 processor will have a dedicated NPU unit for better AI capabilities, powerful GPU and Cortex-A75 high-performance processor cores. It is touted to be the world’s first 7nm system-on-chip (SoC).
The company claims that the new 7nm process offers 20 percent improved SoC performance and 40 percent more efficiency than 10nm process.
According to the latest teasers, both Huawei Mate 20 and Huawei Mate 20 Pro are powered by the Kirin 980 processor. The upcoming flagship is said to come with 6GB/ 8GB RAM and 64GB / 128GB / 512GB internal storage.

While the Huawei Mate 20 is also reported to be backed by a 4,200mAh battery, the Huawei P20 Pro will come with a 4,000mAh battery with fast charging support. The upcoming devices are said to feature a glass back construction to support wireless charging.
Both smartphones are tipped to come with a display notch design. The Mate 20 is expected to sport a 6.53 inch AMOLED display with 19.5:9 aspect ratio. While the Huawei Mate 20 Pro is tipped to come with an in-display fingerprint sensor, the Mate 20 will feature a traditional fingerprint sensor.

Whereas the front camera module (with f/2.0 aperture and fixed focus) includes a 24-megapixel primary sensor and a 2-megapixel secondary sensor.
