Huawei should soon start producing its latest chip, the Kirin 970. According to recent reports, Huawei's first 10nm SoC will go in mass production in September, just in time for Mate 10's launch in October.




This chip will likely be based on the new processors that ARM introduced at Computex earlier this year that have a focus on AI. ARM's new A75, A55 CPUs, G72 GPU and DynamIQ architecture are all designed to deliver the best possible performance while also being designed to accelerate AI workloads and do faster inference.


There is currently no known AI accelerator that Huawei plans to use in addition to the A75, A55 and G72 cores, but its possible they could be developing their own to work with these new processors.

Huawei's Mate 10 should be the company's first device to feature Kirin 970. The Mate 10 is expected to feature a fairly large 6-inch display with a resolution of 2160x1080px and an 18:9 aspect ratio. The device should come with 3D sensing dual cameras, meaning we could see some augmented reality features implemented into the phone.
