Huawei threatens iPhone Edition success with new chip

Huawei, the third most powerful manufacturer in the world behind Apple and Samsung, has just shared in IFA 2017 some details about its new chip that will be integrated into the next Mate 10. According to the Chinese, its performance would be higher than the flagship of Apple and Samsung , including the iPhone Edition that is to come.

According to Reuters, the chip introduced by Huawei called Kirin 970 , which will be the engine of the smartphones Mate 10 and Mate 10 Pro that will see the light on October 6, would position them on the throne of smartphones, overriding mythical brands:

    Compared to Samsung and Apple, we have advantages. Users will experience superior performance, longer battery life and a more compact design.

Although Huawei executive Yu did not mention any specific device, we can obviously assume it refers to the iPhone Edition that Apple will introduce next week and the recently introduced Note 8 and S8 by Samsung. What surprises most of his statements is that this chip "would save battery life by up to 50% . "

Huawei describes its new chip as the first Neural Processing Unit (NPU), a concept that brings together classic computing, with graphics, image and digital signal processing, functions that normally require several chips, leading to significant savings of space and reduces interaction between components .

Although this new Kirin 970 can erect and differentiate Huawei as the best maker of mobile phones in the Android ecosystem, being theoretically superior to the Snapdragon or Exynos chips, it is quite unlikely that yet it can be compared to Apple's processors . And is that being different operating systems and taking into account that Apple manufactures hardware but also develops software, the challenge will be superior for the Chinese, who will not have it so easy to overthrow the Cupertino. However, it will have to be seen.
