IFA 2017: Huawei introduces the Kirin 970 chipset with NPU

Kirin 970

This means that the Kirin 970 will have artificial intelligence embedded within it, compared to other smartphones that rely on connecting to the cloud to activate their artificial intelligence capabilities. It is expected that this processor will power the Huawei Mate 10 smartphone. The Kirin 970 platform is now available for mobile developers and partners for testing. As an example of how AI can be used by Kirin 970-powered devices, Yu said that users will be able to translate foreign languages in real-time, activate functions through voice commands, or take advantage of augmented reality, among numerous other possibilities. The newspaper added that the Mate 10 is set to compete against Apple for more profitable high-end phone market. The firm claims that its processor is capable of delivering 25 times faster performance with 50 times the power efficiency in comparison to Kirin 960. This is the first mobile processor to offer a dedicated mobile AI computing platform within the chipset.

Initial rumours about the announcement circulated around the global launch of the Mi 5X, which has already been released in China. The Mi Mix 2 is expected to come with the price tag of CNY 4,999, which is a little more than $750 at the current exchange rate.

Internet giants have been investing heavily in creating software to help machines think more like people, ideally acting as virtual assistants who get to know users and perhaps even anticipate needs. 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. The iPhone 7 sorted 487 images in that time. Apple is expected to unveil a slew of new offerings, including latest the iPhones, on September 12 in the US.

And there are still plenty of drivers with a solid chance to pull a Jeremy Mayfield and steal a playoff spot with a win. All he'll need to do Sunday is earn a total of 19 points; he can do that through bonuses alone in the first two stages.

Huawei wasn't done making comparisons to rival handsets. To allow developers to make the best use of its AI features, the Kirin 970 will be made available to developers in order to find practical uses for the processor.

So far, Huawei has only confirmed that the Kirin 970 will appear inside its upcoming Mate 10 device, which is scheduled to be announced in mid-October.
