Anonymous, 14 Aug 2018You do realize that when the kirin comes out the 845 is almost a year old and kinda on its way... moreBro kirin 980 is sd845 competitor. So it will be compared with it not with sd855. And SD 855 will be announced in December almost 4 months and phone with that chip will come in January last or February so long time to compete...
Cpu looks powerful, but gpu already outdated and it is 2017 technology will face 2019 chipset with much better tech. G72mp18 in galaxy s9 family literally sucks and no match for as 845 adreno 630. So I guess g72mp24 will not going to do much of power up. So as usual Huawei will be behind in gpu power, nothing to see here, once 855 and new exynos will come out soon after to dominate the market as usual.

ORO0147 , 14 Aug 2018True 👍Well looks like emojis don't work here. I gave a thumbs up
Shui8, 14 Aug 2018Why make such hate? Specs is indeed very good, afraid that later on u will take the embarassment.True 👍
Why so many people hate Huawei? A77 might not exsist currently but its possible ARM and Huawei had a partnership or something and A77 will be unvieled and debut with Kirin 980 or it could be a slightly tweaked A76 and imo they should use 30 GPU cores to make sure they arent outperformed by SD 855
Don Hrle, 14 Aug 2018Indeed, G72 is a bad platform, even 20 core one found in many Galaxy S9s.....as a owner of Mat... moreWhat the heck are you on??? The G72 is a great gpu. And it's 18 core in exynos 9810. And they could have done more with it but more focus and money was going into the larger cpu cores of the 9810. And would have also meant that there would probably more heat and throttling if they beefed the gpu and the cpu with power hungry big cpu cores.
And it's still not far behind the adreno 620.
If they used a 20-32 core set up it would make a much bigger difference.
But the g76 will be here and that's a large improvement.
why use mali - g72 , they should have gone with mali g 76, then this chip would be a beast. and also lddr5 ram should be used as well

There is no Cortex-A77 core in real. ARM announced A76. So this is a bit strange.
Manhurt, 14 Aug 2018When I read official ARM website, Mali G-72 (Bitfrost) still on 16nm. Meanwhile PowerVR (Furia... moreIndeed, G72 is a bad platform, even 20 core one found in many Galaxy S9s.....as a owner of Mate 10 pro I'm not too thrilled bout notch and obsolete GPU platform with core onslaught. It will heat up & throttle like there's no tomorrow.

I present the best android chipset of the year, the Huawei Kirin 980
R.I.P SD845 (2018-2018). Kirin 980 will get at least 1 year jail time for killing the rival chipset. Hehe
Shui8, 14 Aug 2018Cortex A77? Looks legit and this is a huge step up from huawei. Come on, bring more competitio... moreWell A77 doesn't exist, so if it could have one, it would probably Huawei's slightly tweaked version of A76, remember Kirin 930 with A53e cores?
980 is coming though. Probably with a76 cores and 7nm. And probably a big Mali G72 set up.
So it will be powerful.
