The chipset is the world's first commercial SoC manufactured with TSMC's 7nm process and will be used in Huawei's next-generation smartphones.
Huawei's new Kirin 980 processor has been rumored to be the chipset of choice for upcoming flagships such as the Mate 20.
Huawei says the 7-nanometer process delivers a 20 percent improvement in performance and 40 percent better power efficiency over 10-nanometer chips.
Starting from its basic block design, Huawei's the first with the Kirin 980 at two ends.

Washington also threatened other countries with sanctions if they don't cut off Iranian oil imports by early November. Lufthansa and Alitalia are among European companies still running flights to Iran despite the U.S. announcement.
The Kirin 980 has a third cluster, made up of four Cortex A55 cores clocked at 1.8GHz each.
The Kirin 980 also features Cortex-A76 processor cores, which are 75% more powerful and 58% more efficient than previous generations.
Devices being powered by the Kirin 980 will be launched sometime in October this year. According to Huawei, the Kirin 980's G76 will offer a 46% performance boost and a staggering 176% power-efficiency gain over its predecessor. Huawei projects that it will improve on that of the Kirin 970 by up to 134%. while using 88% less power.
The Mali-G76 has an added advantage when it comes to gaming - the AI can intelligently identify gaming workloads and adjust resource allocation accordingly for optimal performance. Additionally, Kirin 980 supports common AI frameworks such as Caffee, Tensorflow and Tensorflow Lite, and provides a suite of tools that simplify the difficulty of engineering On-Device AI, allowing developers to easily tap into the processing power of the Dual NPU. The company's sub-brand, Honor, announced the Magic 2 smartphone with Oppo Find X-like sliding camera module.
Also, there is no fingerprint scanner visible at the mean, meaning that Huawei may employ an in-display scanner, just as the one spotted on the Mate RS Porsche Design.
In addition, Yu also introduced the Huawei Locator powered by Internet of Things (IoT) technology that can help people easily locate their belongings, be it their luggage or pets.
