The company only just recently unveiled the Kirin 960 chip, but the Kirin 970 will bump up from to 3GHz clocks on the CPU cores, up from 1.8-2.4GHz on Kirin 960. According to the rumors, Huawei will be asking TSMC to manufacturer their Kirin 970 processors in Taiwan.

 

As for when Huawei will launch a smartphone with its next-gen Kirin 970 chip inside, we should expect it to launch with the Mate 10 - which could be very soon indeed.
