Huawei: The Journey of Success

Embracing phone artificial intelligence, Huawei is certainly is cutting edge of smart phone development in modern world. But how did it all started? To answer that question we have to rewind back to a brief outlook of Huawei.

Huawei, a Chinese multinational conglomerate is renowned globally for its technology and multinational networking equipments. It took three decades for Huawei to grow into a world leading telecommunication provider with $75 billion annual sales. Huawei started off by manufacturing phone switches, but later it expanded its operations to tablets, fixed broad band networks, consultancy and managed services, and multimedia technology. Huawei started its smart phone business quiet late in 2010 but is still able to make an impact in the market within short time. With a huge family of 180,000 employees Huawei has its presence in 170 countries. Occupying 20% market share, Huawei is China’s leading and ranked as world’s third largest mobile phone manufacturer after Apple and Samsung.

Huawei – A Technology brand

World knows Huawei as a mobile manufacturer, however the brand is much more than that. The company thrives on its technology products that are derived after massive efforts of R & D.

Huawei manufacturing division is known for manufacturing white label products for content service providers. This wide and extensive product line include wireless modems, wireless routers for mobile WI-FI, wireless gateways, fixed wireless terminals, USB modems, video products, handsets, set-top-boxes, and embedded modules.

Various products like tablets PCs, Huawei Smart watch, and IDEOS smart phones are manufactured under “Huawei” brand name. Recent top notch Huawei devices include Huawei Mate 10, Huawei Mate 10 Porsche Design, Huawei P10,Huawei P10 Plus, Huawei P9 Lite, Huawei Mate 8, and Huawei Union to name a few.

Huawei take pride in being the only Android smart phone manufacturer to use its own ‘Kirin chipset’ manufacturer by Huawei owned company HiSilicon.

Kirin chipset is a new generation hyper fast mobile chipset equipped with advanced SoC architecture and leading production technology, incorporated application of single chip processor (AP), and communication processor (Modem). This chipset has mind blowing effects in terms of device performance and help the mobile phone intelligence for a faster and smooth device experience by improving the energy ratio.

Kirin 970, HUAWEI's first mobile AI computing platform

Huawei CEO has made a revolution in the future of artificial intelligence by launching world’s first processor with a dedicated NPU, Kirin 970. No doubt these chipsets are immensely powerful, packed in latest technology, and ensures perfect smooth performance on all Huawei handsets.

The Kirin 970 using a 10nm process sports an Octa core processor with a 12-core GPU manufactured by TSMC. The chipset is equipped with four ARM Cortex-A73 cores running at the frequency of 2.4GHz and four ARM Cortex-A53 cores running at the frequency of 1.8GHz. This chipset is also the first commercial SoC to use the Mali-G72 second generation Bifrost-based GPU from ARM.

The chipset Kirin 970 is the first SoC to have a dedicated Neural Processing Unit (NPU) features a total of 5.5 billion transistors into an area of only a cm². The heterogeneous computing architecture of Kirin 970 chipset as compared to a quad-core Cortex-A73 CPU cluster, delivers up to 25 x performances along with 50x more efficiency. The Kirin 970 chipset can perform all the tasks faster consuming less power. For instance, an image recognition test was conducted, and Kirin 970 impressed the spectators with 2000 images processed per minute, which was far efficient than any other chip in the market.

Smart CPU Allocation

Huawei is smart enough to prioritize your apps according to its usage by dedicating big cores to run high priority apps, and small cores run low priority apps.

AI Vision Engine: AI Camera

A smarter camera with deep intelligence, Huawei has won the hearts with dual rear sensors with Leica SUMMILUX –H lenses. Top notch hardware, and software although play its part in capturing best ever photos. But nothing can be taken away from the EMUI 8.0 Vision Engine. It helps in analyzing what camera sees and alters every detail including color, contrast, brightness and exposure in order to get perfect click.

The AI camera also recognizes objects, and alters the shooting strategy accordingly. For instance if you are pointing the Huawei Mate 10 or Huawei Mate 10 Pro at a dog, flower, or a person, or even a scenic view, the Vision Engine can recognize 13 different scenes and objects automatically.

In a Nut Shell

Huawei has won the battle through its smart phone innovation strategy. The latest Huawei Mate 10 and Huawei Mate 10 Pro represent the phone artificial intelligence at its best. Packed with advanced processor and Kirin chipset to handle AI tasks faster with far less power, Huawei has not failed to amuse.

The EMUI 8.0 software bridges the gap between the native EMUI experience and an exciting new piece of hardware, Kirin 970’s neural network processing unit (NPU).
