Huawei, the world’s third largest smartphone maker, has been designing its mobile chipsets since 2009. The company’s flagship smartphones feature Huawei’s own Kirin chip, instead of Qualcomm’s Snapdragon, which currently powers the Galaxy S8 and OnePlus 5. It’s being said that the Kirin 970 processor will be found inside Huawei’s Mate 10 and Mate 10 Pro smartphones, due for launch in Munich on October 16. Both phones are rumoured to come with a bezel-less design, a longer battery life, and a dual-camera setup. The devices will go head to head with Apple’s soon-to-be-launched iPhone 8, Samsung Galaxy Note 8  and the Essential smartphone, made by Android creator Andy Rubin.
