Huawei Mate 20 series powered by the Kirin 980 processor will launch on October 16th. While the specifics of the Mate 20 series aren’t confirmed, the details of the Kirin 980 SoC have already been officially declared. We are waiting to witness the new flagship from the company, and meanwhile, a device with the codename LYA-L29 has been spotted on Geekbench running Android 9 with an 8-core processor and 6GB RAM.
Looking at the latest Android version and the score, the device in question seems to be the Mate 20 or Mate 20 Pro, both of which will run Huawei’s Kirin 980 chipset. As you could see, the single-core result is 3,390 and the multi-core score is 10,318. The multi-score result clearly outdoes the competition but couldn’t stand against the score of the iPhone running the Apple A12, which is 11,508.
There’s one more comparison to make here as the benchmarking site shows the results for one more device running the yet-to-come Snapdragon 855 processor. The device receives a lesser multi-score of 10259 compared to the result of the Kirin 980. However, the difference isn’t too large, but compared to the score of Apple A12, it’s quite significant.
We will get to know more about the Mate 20 series in coming days as the device is launching on October 16th.
