The company has very recently announced their recent all new Kirin 970 processor at the IFA a few days back and the latest flagship will be powered by this processor only.

Huawei's consumer business has unveiled its first mobile AI computing chipset and platform that aims to change the way smartphone owners interact with their devices.

Speaking to Reuters at the IFA conference in Berlin, Richard Yu, chief of consumer products at Huawei, said: 'Compared with Samsung and Apple, we have advantages.

Kirin 970

The Kirin 970 is said to be the first chipset with a dedicated "Neural Processing Unit", which Huawei explains will help their devices become more intelligent to user needs.

The new Kirin 970 chip's speed and low power can translate into features that will give its phones an edge over the Apple iPhone 8 series and Samsung's range of top-line phones.

The new processor will include advanced artificial intelligence, inclusive of an octa-core chip built upon a 10nm manufacturing process with 5.5 billion transistors.

In a benchmark image recognition test, "Kirin 970" processed 2,000 images per minute which was way faster than other chips on the market.

The firm has announced that its next smartphone, the Mate 10, will come with its own Kirin 970 chipset with AI processing capabilities - marking the first time a Neural Processing Unit has been used in a smartphone. Other smartphones need to utilize the cloud to take on AI abilities, but the Kirin 970 will be able to do all that processing on-board the device instead, making the process faster. The all-new Kirin 970 chipset will be the successor to last year's Kirin 960. Things like this could potentially lead to a more seamless interface experience, something that Huawei could use to develop smart assistants like Google and Apple. The Kirin 970 has even an i7 sensor processor, iNSE and TEE security engines and support for Hi-Fi audio.

The Huawei Mate 10 will be revealed in Munich next October 16, and it will usher in a new generation of smartphones that combine cloud and internal AI features. On the GPU front, it comes with the 12-core ARM Mali-G72 GPU which is quite powerful.
