Huawei also claims the new chipset to be first one to feature the 7nm process, which can boost performance by 20 percent while improving battery efficiency by 40 percent. Currently both Apple and Samsung have also been reported to be working on 7nm processors for their upcoming flagship smartphones.

As the Mate 10 was launched last year in October, the Mate 20 is also expected to be unveiled around the same time this year. The press release only mentions the Mate 20, but previous rumors have also suggested Huawei to launch the Mate 20 Pro and Mate 20 Lite. While the former is said to come with the same Kirin 980 SoC, the Mate 20 Lite is expected to feature a much modest Kirin 710 chipset.

The smartphone is also suggested to feature a triple camera setup similar to the one seen on Huawei P20 Pro. While the specifications are not known, the front camera is also said to come equipped with 3D face recognition technology.
