Chinese telecom giant Huawei’s sub-brand Honor on Thursday announced that bezel-less HonorView 10 smartphone with an Artificial Intelligence (AI)-enabled chipset -- the first from Honor -- will launch in India. The 6GB+128 GB variant of the phone will go on sale via Amazon.in on January 8 with a price tag of Rs 29,999.
The powerful Kirin 970 chipset which include a Neural-Network Processing Unit (NPU) is at the heart of Honor View 10’s extreme performance, the company said.
It powers a series of new AI applications which recognise different scenes when taking photos, translates different languages in real-time even without an Internet connection and understand user’s behaviours and optimises the phone’s performance.
The new Kirin 970 features an octa-core ARM Cortex CPU and a Mali-G72 12-core GPU. Honor View 10 has a special ‘Gaming Suite’ which significantly increases performance of mobile games. The company has partnered with leading game developers to optimise games for Honor View 10.
