We have already posted earlier about the upcoming flagship Huawei Mate 10 that it is expected to come with the AR capability along with the Hisilicon Kirin 970 processor. And now Huawei nearly confirmed that these leaked information regarding the upcoming Mate 10 smartphone are true.

Yu Chengdong, Huawei CEO, recently announced at the 2017 China Internet Conference that Huawei is developing an AI processor. So basically the upcoming processor will be the combination of CPU, GPU and AI as CPU and GPU combination is being used in SoC since last few years.

But the information about the AI part of the device was not revealed in detail. But Mr. Yu stated that the new SoC will be available later this year, giving the hint that Huawei Mate 10 will be hopefully powered by it and will come with the AI features.

Lots of brands are investing in smart electronics with built-in AI assistants. And very recently Qualcomm and Mediatek announced their smart processors that will power smart audio devices. So it makes sense for Huawei to come up with advanced processor with AI and AR capability.

Huawei’s EMUI user interface is already has nice deep machine learning and smart computing capability and with the new AI SoC, it will be smarter and more features could be included in it.

But it seems that Huawei is not going to produce any IoT and smart home device using their own upcoming AI processor. Instead of that Huawei's plan is to provide a platform to third party product manufacturers to create IoT products using their AI SoC.

Currently Huawei is collaborating more than 27 thousand developers to work on creating and developing the Huawei smart ecosystem.

Huawei is also working on creating a cloud based services platform that will allow users to store and recover their device data in case of anything goes wrong with the device. Huawei already provide the HiCloud to its users that provide the cloud backup feature to smartphone and its data like contacts, audio files etc.
