Huawei has big plans
The chip that is supposed to launch later this year allegedly combines CPU, GPU, and AI features and is expected to allow smartphones to be used as car keys for various brands such as BMW, Audi, or Porsche.

When it comes to processors, Huawei has big plans, and we are not talking about the upcoming Kirin 970 SoC, the chip that is expected to drive the Mate 10. According to a report published by DigiTimes, a chip with CPU, GPU, and AI functions is also expected to come out by the end of 2017.

The source mentioned above quotes Richard Yu, Huawei Consumer Business Group's CEO, who "has revealed the company will debut an application processor featuring combined functions of CPU, GPU and AI, at a proper time in the second half of the year." He also added that the company's EMUI custom interface features "deep machine learning and smart computing capability" and its unique compression technology allows 3 GB RAM Huawei handsets to perform better than 4 GB RAM models from other brands.

Huawei recently signed agreements with various auto brands, including big names like BMW, Mercedes Benz, Audi, and Porsche. Yu also disclosed that, in the near future, the company's handsets could be used as car keys thanks to the dedicated security chips installed to provide this capability.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
