Huawei Mate 10 powered by AI-centric Kirin 970 set to launch on October 16

03 September 2017 3

Huawei has now announced the official date for the launch of its upcoming smartphones – October 16. The announcement was made by Richard Yu, CEO of Huawei’s Consumer Business Group, during the company’s IFA 2017 keynote event. The company will unveil the Huawei Mate 10 and the Mate 10 Pro, which will be powered by the company’s latest chipset, the Kirin 970.

Mr. Yu also confirmed that the two devices will be the company’s first full-display smartphones, which means we can expect a high screen-to-body ratio on the two devices, similar to the Samsung Galaxy S8 and the Essential Phone. The two devices will arrive as the successors to the Mate 9 and the Mate 9 Pro which was announced last year.

The company’s Kirin 970 chipset, which was recently unveiled, is a 10nm processor that features an octa-core CPU (four ARM Cortex-A73 CPU cores and four ARM Cortex-A53 cores), 12-core ARM Mali-G72 graphics unit, a dual ISP system for cameras featuring support for hybrid autofocus, low-light imaging and motion photography, and LTE Cat 18 support for download speeds for up to 1.2Gbps. The chipset also features an onboard NPU (Neural Processing Unit) that can pull off incredible feats like performing image recognition on 200 photos in 6 seconds.

The complete details of the device will soon be unveiled as the event is set on October 16 in Munich. We’ll keep you updated if we get any further information regarding the upcoming devices.

The 970 surely looks like a chip designed for fast processing as well as support to AI. Octa core feature, graphics and support for dual camera... all things look perfectly in place.
