At IFA 2017, Huawei announced the launch of the Kirin 970, its new SoC (System on a Chip) with AI capabilities, which the company is promoting as a mobile AI computing platform. The Kirin 970 is powered by an 8-core CPU and a 12-core GPU. It features a dedicated Neural Processing Unit (NPU), which when compared to the 970 CPU, should deliver 25 times the performance with 50 times greater efficiency. Which means that the Kirin 970 can perform the same AI computing tasks faster and with less power. According to the company, in an image recognition test benchmark, the Kirin 970 can process 2000 images per minute, which is faster than any other chip on the market.

Among the smartphones launched at the beginning of 2017, the LG G6 was one of my favorites, and now, the company is back again with yet another great device. The LG V30 has just been announced two days ago and this device is an absolute beauty, inside and out. The least to say is that this phone has a headphone jack!

Galaxy Tab S3 review: Much better than I expected!

I ordered the Galaxy Tab S3 the moment it became available back in May but couldn’t really get around to writing this review, up until now. Before purchasing the tablet I knew exactly what I was buying, I didn’t really expect much out of this device.

After using the device for the past 2 months, it is safe to say that the Tab S3 has exceeded my expectations.
