At CES 2018 in Las Vegas, the Huawei Honor View 10 offered a vision as the smartphone of the future as the first one of its kind to feature a Neural Network Processing Unit. The new phone from the Chinese smartphone manufacturer is touted as one that can perform 25% better than non-AI smartphones.
Although many smartphones are equipped with artificially intelligent assistants to help users carry out a variety of simple tasks, the Huawei Honor View 10 sets itself apart with an AI processor chip. These special chips are capable of carrying out neural network and machine learning calculations, resulting in greater speed and efficiency without a risk of overheating.
Although Google launched its Pixel 2 with an intelligent processor, the neural-network based image processing unit was not enabled.
