Guo Minghao: Huawei Kirin 980 Will Catch Up With iPhone XS

Well-known Apple analyst Guo Minghao today released a new analysis report on Huawei’s upcoming Mate 20 seriesAlthough the focus of this report is on Android smartphone manufacturers, Guo Minghao believes that Huawei’s new custom Kirin 980 chipset is narrowing the gap between Huawei and Apple in terms of user experience. Last year, Huawei’s custom-made Kirin 960 failed to do as well as Apple’s A11 Bionic chip. But the company said it is confident that this year’s Kirin 980 will be more powerful than Apple’s A12 Bionic chip.
