Huawei 'Kirin 970' chipset with advanced AI processing launched at IFA 2017

Posted September 06, 2017

While the competition is still now struggling to keep up with the 2016 iPhone chipsets, Huawei's new Kirin 970 will have to meet the expectations if it will be taken seriously in the smartphone segment. With respect to the camera capabilities of the smartphone, the device offers dedicated Neural Processing unit (NPU) which enables the device to process up to 2000 images per second, whereas the normal CPU can only process up to 72 images per second. Huawei is committed to turning smart devices into intelligent devices by building end-to-end capabilities that support coordinated development of chips, devices, and the cloud.

These are the rumored features of Huawei Mate 10.

In January at the CES trade conference Huawei announced its 8-core Mate 9 flagship smartphone would be the first mobile device to have Amazon's Alexa installed on it, marking another milestone in virtual assistant's move beyond the Amazon Echo speaker.

Chief Executive Yu, also said that their new Kirin 970 chips will use an AI inside them that will help in making the phones more personalized, or in other words, knowing their users' preferences by knowing their interests.

Huawei says that as numerous existing systems rely on artificial intelligence based in the cloud - so not housed on a smartphone itself - small pieces of time can be lost as data is sent up to the cloud, processed and then sent back down again. For mobile AI, the company is spotting the Kirin 970 as an open platform.

Huawei said the Kirin 970 processed 2,000 images per minute in an image-recognition test, faster than other chips on the market.

According to the company claims, the new Kirin 970 will save the phone's battery up to 50 per cent.

Built on 10nm process, this chipset is the first mobile computing unit to feature a built-in AI computing neural processing unit (NPU). The Asian company is constantly improving its products and we wouldn't be surprised if it would manage to outshine Apple and Samsung in the future.

Both these Huawei flagship smartphones; the Mate 10 and Mate 10 Pro are confirmed to be launched on October 16 at an event in Munich.

Huawei has previously said that the strength in its AI chip is that it does its processing onboard, not relying on the cloud.
