And since all this AI prowess needs actual applications, Huawei states it's opening up the Kirin 970 to developers to find practical uses.

Richard Yu, CEO of Huawei's consumer business group, said the Kirin 970 is the first in a series of new advances that will bring powerful AI features to our devices and take them beyond the competition. The chipset boasts an 8-core CPU and a 12-core GPU, and has a dedicated Neural Processing Unit (NPU). The processor has been developed by Huawei under their HiSilicon brand.

Huawei plans to employ its on-device AI to perform a multitude of tasks, such as, but not limited to, memory allocation, UI rendering, camera image processing, load balancing, and task scheduling.

Huawei is one of the most ambitious companies in the smartphone industry and it even publicly stated that its goal is to surpass both Apple and Samsung in order to become the biggest smartphone manufacturer in the world. It packs a whopping 5.5 billion transistors into a area measuring just a single centimeter squared (1 cm).

The Chinese network company says that its new Kirin 970 chip is faster and uses less power than those of Apple and Samsung. According to the claims, the Kirin 970's NPU delivers performance that is 25 times more than the CPU's, and efficiency that is 50 times greater.
