Huawei is readying itself to take on Apple and Samsung with its upcoming Huawei Mate 10 flagship smartphone. As we reported earlier, the Chinese smartphone company is introducing its AI enabled Kirin 970 chipset this year and seemingly is going at full throttle to claim a top spot in the battle of flagships.
Richard Yu, chief executive of Huawei’s consumer business has revealed that the company is eyeing its new AI powered chipset to set them apart via faster processing and lower power consumption, reports Reuters.
According to Yu, the new Kirin 970 chipset will give iPhone 8 a run for the money due to its various features enabled by its speed and low power.
While giving examples, he said that with the inclusion of AI in the phone’s chipset, users can experience real-time language translation, heed voice commands, or take advantage of augmented reality, which overlays text, sounds, graphics. They can also view a video on real-world images that phone users see in front of them.
The company believes that the new chipset will preserve up to 50% of battery life though complete details will be revealed when the company will unveil Huawei Mate 10 on 16th October.
Apple, on the other hand, is ready to show case its 10th-anniversary smartphone, iPhone 8 on 12th September and we simply have to wait and see whether Huawei’s claims will stand the test of time.
