It’s no secret that Huawei’s Mate 10 is just on the horizon. The Chinese company, however, focused more on its upcoming Kirin 970 SoC rather than their upcoming smartphone. What separates the Kirin 970 from the high-end Exynos 8895 and Snapdragon 835 is that it comes with its own “Neural Processing Unit.”
Based on a report, the Kirin 970 is built on a 10nm manufacturing process with 5.5 billion transistors. It features an octa-core CPU and a 12-core GPU. Huawei claims that its new SoC can deliver up to 25x more performance with 50x efficiency compared to a quad-core Cortex-A73 CPU.
