Huawei’s new Kirin 980 chip and Apple’s A12 have many similarities. They both use TSMC’s 7nm process technology, which includes 6.9 billion transistors. Although Apple said that the A12 is the smartest and most powerful chip in smartphones, we have to wait and see when China launches the Mate 20 smartphone series later this month. Guo Minghao did not make a specific prediction on which company’s results would be better in the report, but he did point out that thanks to Huawei’s internal chips, the Chinese company is making great strides. He believes that the company is distinguishing itself from Android phones that primarily use Qualcomm’s Opteron processors.
Speaking of Apple, Guo thinks that Huawei is narrowing the gap with Apple’s user experience through the development of Kirin chips. However, many people will say that iOS is a major advantage in providing a good user experience, even if Huawei’s chipset is close to Apple’s A-series.
