Last but not the least, 980 is the world's first smartphone chipset to feature the LTE Cat.21 that means downlink at 1.4 Gbps and with the Hi1103, the peak download speed goes up to 1.7 Gbps.

When we reviewed the Huawei P20 here, the camera is indeed fantastic. Mali-G76 utilises AI to intelligently identify gaming workloads and adjust resource allocation for optimal gaming performance.

The Kirin 980 is also the first in the world to feature the Mali-G76 GPU.
