For example, says, has made AI the basis of its new hardware, from the pixel smartphone to the smart speaker. That says Apple, whose A11 processor for the iPhone X will contain a neural engine, which is responsible for the face recognition Face December 2018 Calendar USA ID among others. And that’s what Huawei says. On Monday, the Chinese manufacturer in Munich presented its new luxury-class Mate 10 Pro and its slightly smaller, but not offered in Germany standard variant Mate 10.

Actually, it should not be a smartphone, but an “intelligent machine”, as Huawei PR The Ki chips come core piece of the Mate 10 Pro is the Kirin 970 processor introduced a few weeks ago, which like the Apple has a special AI unit, a neural network processing unit, NPU short. There are good reasons why both companies rely on artificial intelligence not only in their software but also in their hardware.
AI applications, more specifically machine learning and neural networks, are very computationally intensive. The more data they process and re-link, the more complex the algorithms become, the more performance they need. Previous mobile processors were limited in their ability to perform such tasks. The new chips from Apple, Huawei or ARM but are optimized for it. Huawei claims that the NPU of the Kirin 970 can handle neural networks 25 times more efficiently than the CPU.
The AI chips do not only accomplish these tasks faster and better, but are also relatively energy-efficient. This in turn allows manufacturers new opportunities. Complex AI applications, from Face ID to Scene Recognition in the camera, can be calculated directly on the smartphone and do not have to run through the servers of the manufacturers and app providers. This saves time and it is safer for users at best if their data does not leave the smartphone at all.
Although almost all manufacturers are interested in this exchange to train their KI in a big way. Big and powerful Big is generally the keyword of the Huawei Mate 10 Pro. As a so-called phablet, it belongs to the segment of giant smartphones and competes among others with the Samsung Galaxy Note 8, the Google Pixel 2 XL and the iPhone 8 Plus.
The standard model, which is not officially available in Germany, has a 5.9-inch screen with a resolution of 2,560 x 1,440 pixels. The Pro version comes to just under six inches at a resolution of 2,160 by 1,080 pixels. Of course, Huawei also dispensed with the trend largely on the edges – the front is practically only screen.
The Mate 10 Pro reminds at first glance of the current Galaxy devices from Samsung, also because it is somewhat narrower compared to its predecessor. The similarities, however, stop on the back. The two camera lenses are again on top of each December 2018 Calendar USA other in the upper middle and are covered by a striking design stripes. Instead of aluminum on its predecessor, Huawei’s Mate 10 uses a glass backplate that is more susceptible to fingerprints.
