The wait is over as the first smartphone powered by Kirin 980 is all set to make its debut on October 16th in London, UK. While the location is different this time, the date is exactly a year from the launch of the Mate 10 series. It has become a sort of tradition for Huawei to launch its flagship phones in Europe and we don’t think that will be changing soon.

Not to mention that the Mate 10 series got immense response from Huawei fans since their launch last year. The Mate 20, as successor to the Mate 10 series, will have a number of improvements including being the first device powered by the latest Kirin 980 processor – the world’s first 7nm chipset.
