The firm makes a lot more than just mobile phones
At yesterday's Mate20 jamboree, Fudzilla had a chance to interview a senior executive about the artificial intelligence built into its mobile devices and it transpired there's a lot more to its AI than meets the eye.
Hello Mate, here's the Mate20 Pro
Well over 2,000 people, from all over the world, poured into a conference hall in the Excel conference centre in London yesterday to see and listen to a complete bells and whistles exposition of the virtues of Huawei's latest range of phones the Mate 20 and the Mate20 Pro.
Leica triple rear camera and Kirin 980 SoC
At its event in London, Huawei has officially unveiled its two new flagship smartphones, the Mate 20 and the Mate 20 Pro, both featuring a triple camera, co-engineered with Leica, as well as the new Huawei flagship 7nm Kirin 980 SoC.
Cortex-A76 doing the magic
Huawei is the first company after Apple to mass produce the 7nm smartphone chip and this will be miles apart from the previous Kirin 970. The combination of Cortex-A76 and Cortex-A55 cores will do the magic.
All clear, if you use an on switch
The parent company of 3Dmark UL and Huawei made a statement about the delisting of the latter's phones and agreed to work with each other to solve the issue.
No 5G NR form factor devices yet
The IFA consumer trade show has just finished, and we wanted to share a bit about 5G with focus on the big silicon manufacturers. Both Samsung and Huawei didn’t show anything at the show, while both companies reassured us that they will have something later.
Consequences of clear cheating
We’ve seen this happening before in the discrete and mobile GPU world and it looks like Huawei was caught with its pants down cheating on graphics benchmarking. The result is that UL, owner of 3DMark has delisted Huawei P20 Pro, Huawei Nova 3 and Honor Play.
Octa-core SoC with dual NPUs
Huawei is obviously going after its competition with its latest Kirin 980 SoC, which is all about being the world's first SoC in many categories, including the first made on TSMC's 7nm, the first with Cortex-A76 cores, dual NPUs, and plenty of other things too.
With a slide out camera
In addition to the Honor Play, Huawei's sub-brand teased the new Magic 2 smartphone, a smartphone without a notch, chin, and with a slide out camera.
