Huawei takes a jab at Apple, promises to reveal ‘the real AI phone’ in October

    Well, they did recently knock Apple out of 2nd place and now sit behind Samsung so it’s no wonder they’re being a little cocky.

    • h2oflyer

      Being aggressive and cocky worked for Samsung… I forgot sleazy.

    • thereasoner

      Used to work for Apple too…but they go overboard with it.

  • ciderrules

    Followers always try to take shots at the leader.

    Sorry, Huawei, you’re NOT the first SoC with a neural processor. Apple beat you with the A11.

  • Brad Fortin

    The Kirin 960 in Huawei’s 2017 flagships could barely keep up with the A9 in Apple’s 2015 flagships, couldn’t touch the A10 in Apple’s 2016 flagships, and gets blown away by the A11 in Apple’s 2017 flagships, so Huawei would need not just an ace up its sleeve but a royal flush up its sleeve just to catch up with Apple this year, let alone get ahead in any meaningful respect. But good luck Huawei, the competition can only make you better!

      That’s false. The video below shows that to be false. The Mate 9 is NOT blown away by the Apple phone 7.

      Phonebuff is not the end all to be all and is definitely not a scientific study.

    • ciderrules

      So pathetic how you pick and choose different videos from different youtubers based solely on whether or not the iPhone wins/loses.

    • Domino67

      Pathetic is you crying because your precious phone didn’t win.

      I just grabbed the first video that WASN’T phonebuff.

      So Waa Waa.

    • ciderrules

      iPhone opens Apps faster and you claim bogus test. OnePlus 5 opens Apps faster and it’s a valid test. Phonebuff says iPhone 7 is faster, invalid test. Phonebuff says Huawei is faster, valid test.

      You’re the biggest hypocrite/liar around.

      So sorry the A11 obliterates every other phone out there.

    • Domino67

      You’re still crying about this?

      Don’t you have someone to change your iDiaper and burp you?

    • Brad Fortin

      Well then by your own admission any one YouTuber “is not the end all to be all and is definitely not a scientific study”, yet you’re acting like it is with your own example. How hypocritical. Heck, let’s ignore YouTubers for a moment and turn our attention to benchmarks since they’re much more impartial.

      Geekbench, single core: Mate 9 scores ~1900, iPhone 7 scores ~3450, almost double the performance.

      Geekbench, multi-core: Mate 9 scores ~6150 with all 8 cores, iPhone 7 scores 5600 with only 2 cores. Imagine what the results will be like now that the A11 can address all 6 cores at once? Current benchmarks have it beating dual-core Kaby Lake chips.

      JetStream: Mate 9 scores ~68, iPhone 7 scores ~155, more than double the score.

      AnTuTu: Mate 9 scores ~128,000, iPhone 7 scores ~175,000.

      But please, don’t let benchmarks stop you from claiming the iPhone isn’t that much faster even though its per-core performance is nearly twice as fast as the competition.

      Wow….triggered?

      We all know that apple phones open graphic intesive games faster…..but everyday apps it doesn’t…..that’s a fact.

      Phonebuffs test of laps and three video games is not indicitive of how people use a phone….ever!

      The tests below don’t show the A10 running away from pack.

    • Brad Fortin

      Why do you keep bringing up Phonebuff when I’ve already said “let’s ignore YouTubers”? Your refusal to let it go makes it seem like Phonebuff triggers you. Heavy breathing, much?

      If we “all know that apple phones open graphic intesive games faster” and games are everyday apps for most people doesn’t that make Apple phones faster at everyday apps?

    • Domino67

      Seriously Brad when was the last time ANYONE opened up 3 games let alone 20 apps in a couple of minutes??

      Did you get bumped in the head?

      Most people know what EVERYDAY apps are, but for the intellectually challenged it would be Facebook,Text,Email,Phone, Camera,Instagram, photos, messenger etc….. yes perhaps a graphic intensive game but probably not multiple times a day like the above.

    • Brad Fortin

      Yup, you’re triggered.

    • thereasoner

      Actually he’s right, those app races “speed tests” are not how people use their phones at all much less day to day.

      The fact that such an unrealistic test using so many apps in row repeatedly opened over and over is needed to show any sort of speed difference tells any logical person that in the REAL real world use scenario the speed differences are negligible at best.

      That said, fanboys do lap that nonsense up, irrelevant benchmarks too but what else is a fanboy to do when they haven’t anything realistic to brag about?…no offense.

    • Brad Fortin

      Oh look, Domino67 isn’t the only one who’s triggered.

    • h2oflyer

      Kirin 970.

    • Brad Fortin

      Congratulations, you’ve heard of the chip that will be in Huawei’s 2018 flagships, but that doesn’t help them in 2017.

    • h2oflyer

      Jab, just a jab

    • Domino67

      Actually the Kirin 970 is coming out in October…..which is 2017 and before the apple X comes out.

    • Brad Fortin

      Really? Would you be so kind as to point to the Huawei press release where they reveal that date?

    • thereasoner

      TechRadar has October 16 as “all but confirmed” from their sources but either way it’s due out this year.

    • Brad Fortin

      But until it’s confirmed it’s just speculation and rumours.

    • thereasoner

      Still, to say it’s a “2018 flagships” is much bigger speculation on your part and you have nothing to support said presumptuous conclusion.

      At least talk of 2017 availability is supported considering that pictures of the Mate 10 leaked today along with expected realease dates.

    • Domino67

      “To further add to the Apple mockery, Huawei says consumers can look forward to “unlocking the future” with the reveal of “TheRealAIPhone” on October 10th.
