Huawei surpasses Apple to be the Second Largest Smartphone Brand

Huawei surpasses Apple to be the Second Largest Smartphone Brand

In the latest research conducted by Counterpoint’s Market Pulse, HUAWEI has surpassed Apple in global smartphone sales consistently for June and July 2017. With the sales in August looking strong for the Chinese vendor as well, a hat-trick for HUAWEI could be possible. Peter Richardson – Research Director of Counterpoint states: “This is a significant milestone for Huawei, the largest Chinese smartphone brand with a growing global presence. It speaks volumes for this primarily network infrastructure vendor, on how far it has grown in the consumer mobile handset space in the last three to four years. The global scale Huawei has been able to achieve, can be attributed to its consistent investment in R&D and manufacturing – coupled with aggressive marketing and sales channel expansion.” Talking about future prospects and other findings, Counterpoint’s Associate Director – Tarun Pathak states: “The growth of Chinese brands is an important trend which no player in the mobile ecosystem can ignore. Chinese brands are growing swiftly, not only because of smartphone design, manufacturing capability and rich feature sets – but also by out-smarting and out-spending rivals in sales channels, go-to-market and marketing promotion strategies.” Mr Pathak further stated: “Chinese vendors have become as equally important as Samsung or Apple to the global supply chain, application developers and distribution channels, as they continue to grow in scale more rapidly than the incumbent market share leaders.” Counterpoint Technology Market Research is a global research firm specializing in Technology products in the TMT industry.

Huawei Reveals the Future of Mobile AI at IFA 2017

Huawei Reveals the Future of Mobile AI at IFA 2017

IFA 2017, Huawei Consumer Business Group unveiled a new era in smartphone innovation. As part of CEO Richard Yu’s keynote address, he revealed Huawei’s vision for the future of artificial intelligence with the launch of the Kirin 970. By combining the power of the cloud with the speed and responsiveness of native AI processing, Huawei is bringing AI experiences to life and changing the way we interact with our devices. After years of development, Cloud AI has seen broad application, but user experience still has room for improvement, including latency, stability, and privacy. Cloud AI and On-Device AI can complement each other. On-Device AI offers strong sensing capabilities, which are the foundation of understanding and assisting people. Sensors produce a large amount of real-time, scenario-specific, and personalized data. Supported by strong chip processing capabilities, devices will become more cognitive of user needs, providing truly personalized and readily accessible services. Kirin 970 is powered by an 8-core CPU and a new generation 12-core GPU. Built using a 10nm advanced process, the chipset packs 5.5 billion transistors into an area of only one cm².  Huawei’s new flagship Kirin 970 is Huawei’s first mobile AI computing platform featuring a dedicated Neural Processing Unit (NPU). Compared to a quad-core Cortex-A73 CPU cluster, the Kirin 970’s new heterogeneous computing architecture delivers up to 25x the performance with 50x greater efficiency. Simply put, the Kirin 970 can perform the same AI computing tasks faster and with far less power. In a benchmark image recognition test, the Kirin 970 processed 2,000 images per minute, which was faster than other chips on the market. New developments in AI require joint effort across the entire value chain, involving tens of millions of developers, and the experience and feedback of hundreds of millions of users. Huawei is positioning the Kirin 970 as an open platform for mobile AI, opening up the chipset to developers and partners who can find new and innovative uses for its processing...
