Next flagship from the Huawei, Huawei Mate 10 is closer to its unveil, on October 16 to be precise. According to the Huawei CEO Richard Yu the Mate 10 will be launched at an event in Berlin, at the Huawei keynote where newest chipset the Kirin 970 was introduced.
The chipset is manufactured by the subsidiary company HiSilicon. The SoC’s octa-core CPU is based on a 10nm fabrication and uses a design superior to ARM’s Cortex-A73. The performance of the Kirin 970 is said to be 25 times better and 50 times more efficient.
A new 12-core GPU is also included and a dedicated Neural Processing Unit will focus on artificial intelligence tasks linked to the cloud and on the device for real-time calculations from end to end.
Yu also confirmed the upcoming flagship Mate 10 and Mate 10 PRo will feature the Kirin 970 processor. And the devices will be Huawei’s first full display smartphones which means we can expect a screen-to-body ratio similar to what has been seen on the likes of the Galaxy Note 8 and Essential Phone.
The Huawei Mate 10 had previously been teased in a Huawei tweet which suggested it would arrive with a dual camera setup.
