16 min read

The rivalry between Huawei and Apple is not likely to die down. Below are a few facts about two of the world’s most powerful smartphone processors.

Huawei: Kirin 980 Faster Than Apple’s A12 Bionic?

Huawei, one of the World’s biggest tech companies introduced its new flagship Kirin 980 processor dedicated to their new line of smartphones and hardware. Not only did Huawei Technologies present the Mate 20 Series, they also added some extra hardware at the #IFA2018. The Huawei AI Cube is a 4G router with integrated Smart Speaker, equipped with an LTE-SIM and is able to sustain and distribute up to 300mbps data from the net.

The Kirin 980 is a 7nm mobile phone SoC chipset, the world’s first Cortex-A76 architecture chipset, the world’s first dual NPU design, and the world’s first chipset to support LTE Cat.21. The Kirin 980 combines multiple technological innovations and leads the AI trend to provide users with an impressive mobile performance and to create a more convenient and intelligent life. Kirin 980 can quickly adapt to AI scenes such as face recognition, object recognition, object detection, image segmentation and intelligent translation with the power of a dual-core NPU.

The powerful object detection capabilities can also accurately identify a variety of objects. In comparison to the Kirin 970, the Kirin 980 is an impressive leap from image recognition to object detection. The Kirin 980 sets the foundation for future AI capabilities by providing complete framework support and rich tool keys for App developers.

The Kirin 980 is the first to support LTE Cat.21 which supports the fastest downlink at 1.4 Gbps and offers a stable connection in congested areas like subways or high-speed rails. With the Hi1103, it supports a theoretical peak download speed of 1.7 Gbps and 160 MHz bandwidth, which is 1.7x the industry level. The GPS is supported by industry leading L1 + L5 dual frequency ultra-precise positioning to give you a more accurate target location when using map navigation, even in complex terrains.

Although the tech giant Apple has dominated the market over time, the Chinese Smartphone maker overtook them as the second largest smartphone manufacturer in the World. The Kirin 980 integrates 6.9 billion transistors in an area of less than 1 square centimeter which is a 1.6x fold increase in density to empower better performance. This chipset is the first Cortex-A76 based in the world and has a 75% improvement in single core performance.

The Kirin 980 also includes the world’s first commercial use Mali-G76 GPU performance is improved by 46%. The LPDDR4X memory operates at speeds up to 2133 MHz. The fourth-generation ISP utilizes a multi-pass noise reduction to capture quality images and preserve important details. This ISP also has a dedicated video pipeline to effectively improve video clarity and reduce shooting delays by 33%.

Apple A12 Bionic SoC

The Apple A12 Bionic processor is packing a six-core CPU (with two “performance” cores and four “efficiency” cores), a four-core GPU (which is up to 50 percent faster than the A11’s), and an updated Neural Engine, a special part of the chip designed to handle AI tasks. While last year’s chip had a two-core Neural Engine, the A12 Bionic bumps that up to eight cores. And while the old Neural Engine could crunch through 600 billion operations per second, the new version can handle 5 trillion operations per second. It’s worth noting though, that while Apple says this is the industry’s first 7nm chip.

The AI-dedicated processor is designed to speed up the iPhone’s AI capabilities for Apple’s facial identification system FaceID, ARKit, and other machine learning tasks.

We cant deny these two processors are amongst the best on the smartphone market till date.The ultimate choice lies with you. Would you get an iPhone or a Huawei smartphone just because you are loyal to the brand? You be the best Judge
