Huawei Mate 10 and Mate 10 Pro will be powered by Kirin 970

It's officially confirmed: the upcoming Huawei Mate 10 and Mate 10 Pro will run on the company's latest and most powerful system chip, the Kirin 970.

The Mate 10 and Mate 10 Pro will be unveiled in Munich, Germany on October 16th, and are expected to also feature an edge-to-edge, bezel-less screen to take on the best like Samsung's Galaxy S and Note, the Apple iPhone 8, LG's V30 and the rest.

The new Kirin 970 is about faster camera and better AI

Huawei has just taken the wraps off the new Kirin 970 chip and it is a very powerful 10nm chip with a dedicated neural network processing engine for better AI capabilities. The chip also supports a dual camera system with one color and one monochrome sensor for better low-light picture quality. Take this as a hint that the Huawei Mate 10 will also ship with a color and B&W camera.

The new image signal processor in the Kirin 970 (and the Mate 10) is also much faster at taking pictures, which should result in far less blurry pics. It also has a much faster image recognition tech than the competition.

So true, Samsung UI is complete garbage. Phone becomes laggy after a few months of use and continues to get worst. Try any stock Android phone and you will see why Samsung UI is so bad. So it really doesn't even matter if Samsung uses SOC faster than everyone else. Real world performance is what counts.

How about using a custom UI in Samsung phones then?

In fact, I really do not get what all the fiss about Samsung UI is about. People trying too hard to make Samsung's UI appear terrible to the point of theur phones being unusable?

I still have my Exynos 5410 Galaxy S4 running the official Android Kitkat firmware, guess what? I doesn't lag as bad as you guys claim. Seriously!

I use nova launcher and my note 5 is blazing fast. No root. Bought from samsung official store without carrier bloat.

this and apple a11 will dominate the second half of the year or last quarter in terms of soc performance. maybe its time for Samsung to cut ties with Qualcomm and focus on its exynos chip as if Qualcomm wasn't involved Samsung would probably have created a custom mali g72 powered exynos chip for the note 8 rather than bother about parity with the snapdragon 835

Samsung isn't making a new SoC as they are putting their SoC resources into a new Exynos for the S9

In 2014, with a cheaper 14nm process, Samsung didn't use the 810 at all, yet both their S6 and Note5 had the same 7420
SoC development is really expensive, hence from Samsung's PoV its not economical to make 2 new flagship SoCs a year (and Qualcomm's too, only Apple and Huawei do that now days)

After the unveiling of the V30, I kinda lost interest in Huawei's event. LG really nailed it this year with the V30.

"LG really nailed it this year with the V30."

Yeah, though the V30's selfie camera is a huge let down and it's even worse than the selfie camera of the Galaxy S6!
