Huawei unveils faster phone chip

But what's more interesting, is that the CPU will be paired with a new 12-core powerful GPU, as well as a dedicated NPU (Neural Processing Unit), which will be exclusively dedicated to handling AI tasks on the device. The chipset packs 5.5 billion transistors in a single square cm and supports HDR 10 and 4K video recording at 60 frames per second.

Huawei is positioning the Kirin 970 as an open platform for mobile AI, opening up the chipset to developers and partners. Huawei says the new chip offers 25x more performance while being 50x more efficient, being able to process 2000 images a minute. A phone packing one of these chips would be able to process 2,000 images per minute, more than any other mobile device now in the market. Huawei's vision of the future involves the deep integration of AI in every smartphone, and not only on a software level.

"The ultimate goal is to provide a significantly better user experience".

The Kirin 970 is a mighty slice of silicon built using an advanced 10-nanometer manufacturing process.

Chinese electronics giant Huawei Technologies Co (華為) on Saturday unveiled its first artificial intelligence (AI)-capable processor in hopes it will rival the dominance of Samsung Electronics Co's Bixby and Apple Inc's Siri. 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.

There was a lot of buzz around the release of the gen-next Huawei processor, the Kirin 970. Since the upcoming Huawei Mate 10 will be equipped with the Kirin 970 SoC, it is expected to feature powerful cameras.

Yu added that the speed and low power requirement of the Kirin 970 will give its smartphones an edge over the iPhone 8 and the Galaxy Note 8.
