Huawei Teases the Mate 10 Phone and its AI Processor

Huawei Mate 10 and Mate 10 Pro will be powered by Kirin 970

The Kirin 970, which offers tremendous speed and low power consumption, was designed by Huawei's HiSilicon chip design business, and manufactured by TSMC. From the looks of it, Huawei is on the right path since it recently unveiled an artificial intelligence smartphone processor.

Calling the tech Mobile AI, it combines both On-Device AI as well as Huawei's own Cloud AI.

"The NPU can think and actively work to provide you the best user experience, whereas other A.I. assistance like Google Assistant only works reactively", Yu said. Huawei's vision of the future involves the deep integration of AI in every smartphone, and not only on a software level.

Huawei described the chip as the world's first Neural Processing Unit (NPU) for smartphones which integrates classic computing, graphics, image and digital signal processing, all of which earlier required separate chips.

We'll find out for certain what the Mate 10 containing that Kirin 970 processor can do when Huawei unveils its new phones October 16. Supported by strong chip processing capabilities, devices will become more cognitive of user needs, providing personalized and readily accessible services.

After plenty of rumors and an unofficial reveal, Huawei's Kirin 970 SoC finally made its official debut at IFA 2017.

Kirin 970 is powered by an 8-core CPU and a new generation 12-core GPU. Huawei says that its new heterogeneous computing architecture, when compared against the Cortex-A73 (quad-core) has up to 25x more performance, and a huge 50x more efficiency.

In order to make it clear just how powerful Kirin 970 is, Richard Yu who Huawei's CEO stated the following: "The Kirin 970 is faster, better and more secure than anything else available on the market". The company had been teasing the release of this device for months with posts on social media which hinted that Huawei is looking at AI as the next big thing.
