Huawei to launch application processor that combines CPU, GPU and AI functions

Huawei  logoHuawei will have a very busy H2 2017 if we are to believe what Richard Yu, CEO of Huawei's Consumer Business Group, told the audience at 2017 China Internet Conference.

Apparently, the Chinese company plans to launch an application processor that will feature combined functions of CPU, GPU (graphics processing unit) and AI (artificial intelligence). The new processor will be released in the second half of the year, as Huawei hopes to better compete with Google and Apple in the new sector of AI application processors.

Moreover, Yu explained that his company continues to work on the Kirin 970 chipset that's expected to be packed inside the upcoming Huawei Mate 10. The chip will be based on financial security requirements, as Huawei plans to add support for credit transfers among banks, Yu added.

According to Yu, future Huawei smartphones will come with pre-installed security chip, which will allow owners to use them as car keys for brands like Audi, BMW, and Porsche, companies with which Huawei has already inked agreements.

It remains to be seen how much of what's been announced this week Huawei will manage to achieve in the coming months. Consumer-wise, it means we should prepare for some interesting announcement in the next six months.
