Huawei prepping 10nm Kirin 970 SoC that could arrive in future handsets

Huawei has had a fairly busy year so far, releasing the Mate 9 in the United States at the top of the year and then offering up the P10 and P10 Plus at Mobile World Congress in February. While the firm will no doubt come with some with newer iterations in the near future, a new report states that those handsets will be powered by its own unannounced Kirin 970 processor.

While there aren't many details about the chip at this moment, the source states that the Kirin 970 chipset will be built on 10nm technology. The source also states that this SoC will most likely find its way into the Mate 10, which will arrive sometime later this year while packing four ARM Cortex-A73 cores plus four ARM Cortex-A53 cores.

The Mate 9 was a fairly compelling handset, offering a great set of specifications in a manageable size, despite its larger display size. While nothing has been confirmed, it appears that the follow-up, the Mate 10, could offer a sleeker design by reducing the bezels of its display and going for an even greater screen-to-body ratio than Samsung's Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+.
