Kirin 970, uses 10nm leading process technology and brings together classic computing, graphics, image and digital signal processing power, which typically required separate chips and took up more spaces. The Kirin 970 is also first Kirin processor to come with Huawei's mobile AI computing platform that sports a dedicated Neural Processing Unit (NPU).

Yu confirmed that the Mate 10 will be unveiled on october 16 in Munich, and while the executive did not provide any previews of the smartphone, he teased that the front of the device will be completely bezel-less.

Mate 10, the smartphone powered by Kirin 970, which enables stronger image-recognition, will be launched on Oct 16 in Munich, Reuters reported, citing Yu. ´╗┐Mobile AI = On-Device AI + Cloud AI. And by comparing to Samsung and Apple Richard Yu said that he believes that the feature performance and the battery life will give an upper hand over the new upcoming Apple iPhone 8 and Samsung Galaxy Note 8.




"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. The primary highlight of the processor is that it comes with built-in #Artificial Intelligence for mobile phones, which operates on its own #Neural Processing Unit.

Chinese smartphone maker Huawei Technologies unveiled its first artificial intelligent smartphone chipset on Saturday as it gears up to compete against the much anticipated launch of a new class of iPhones. To add to this, there's 8-core CPU and 12-core GPU with 5.5 million transistors - all in an area of one square centimeter.

Huawei is positioning the new chipset as an open platform for mobile AI which means developers can play with the chipset and create new uses for it. The first smartphones to feature the new Kirin 970 processor will be the Mate 10 and Mate 10 Pro.
