The Mate range from Huawei have generally been well received by users and reviewers alike and they have now announced that the Huawei Mate 10 will be launched on the 16th of October this year where they will hold a press event in Munich.

The big talking point of the new Mate 10 is the new Kirin 970 SoC which has an 8-core CPU, a new generation 12-core GPU, and a dedicated Neural Processing Unit (NPU) to power AI computing.

The Kirin 970 is said to combine the power of the cloud with the speed and responsiveness of native AI processing. What is the purpose of this AI processor? According to the Huawei CEO the technology can be leveraged to create “a significantly better user experience”.

Until the press event is held, that is about all we know about the new Mate 10 in terms of specification. However, looking at the image they tweeted the new phone will likely follow this years trend and implement a bezel-less design.

Hopefully, we will be able to get hold of a review sample following the launch and test out how great this new Kirin chip is.
