Huawei unveils eight-core Kirin 970 chipset with dedicated Neural Processing Unit

Huawei unveils eight-core Kirin 970 chipset with dedicated Neural Processing Unit

18 4G LTE. The AI chip that is built into this processor is expected to improve not only the phone's performance, but also its battery life, and it will be interesting to see how well will all that work once the first Kirin 970-powered phone gets announced, and that will nearly certainly be the Huawei Mate 10 which is expected to land next month. This new set however is much clearer, but there are few differences between the two. The renders are based on CAD drawings. It's safe to assume that this will be the case this time around too.

We'll know for sure what the Mate 10 will look like, and where the fingerprint sensor will be placed on 16 October, when it's unveiled at an event in Munich. Another change for the Mate 10 is the fingerprint sensor on the front of the phone. However, they will probably get over it soon. It's a sleek, solid-looking tablet with thin bezels and a rounded-edge design but also evident is a front home button.

Huawei teased last month that the Mate 10 will feature a full-screen display to better compete with Apple. Unfortunately, it seems that Huawei kept the rather thick top and bottom bezels. Chinese brand Huawei did a couple of announcements such as confirming the launch date of Huawei Mate 10 and Mate 10 Pro. According to the leaks, the handset will measure 150.2 x 77.5 mm, and it will be 8.4 mm thick.

On the back, the Huawei Mate 10 sports a dual-camera setup.

Another key issue for Counterpoint: Huawei lacks a real "hero" device or a definitive, instantly identifiable flagship device that could bring brand recognition. It's going to feature Huawei's latest 970 SoC and will likely feature 6GB of RAM and probably 64GB in storage.

The Kirin 970 is an octa-core mobile processor that has 5.5 billion transistors cramped in a tiny 10nm manufacturing process. Also, according to Huawei CEO Richard Yu, the Mate 10 will ensure a longer battery life.

Huawei further states that the Kirin 970 should be able to deliver up to 25 times the performance of a quad-core ARM Cortex-A73 CPU, as well as 50 times greater efficiency.
