Since the Huawei P10 had launched in February, previous rumors had claimed that the Huawei P20 would be coming in Q1 2018 driven with Kirin 970 chipset. However, newer rumors are claiming that it would be featuring Kirin 960 chipset. Since Huawei P20 is supposed to arrive as a flagship phone with greatest specs, it seems unlikely that that the P20 would be launching with Kirin 960 this year.

Huawei is heavily pegged to debut the Huawei Mate 10 flagship this year in October and it is expected to be the first smartphone from the company to come with Kirin 970 chipset. The HiSilicon Kirin 970 chipset is homegrown 10nm SoC from Huawei that is rumored to feature eight cores of Cortex A73 along with Mali-G71MP12.

The Mate 10 is speculated to feature a 6-inch display that will produce a resolution of 2,160 x 1,080 pixels as it is rumored to support an aspect ratio of 18:9. It is also rumored to feature 3D sensing camera and the flagship is also expected to offer AR capabilities. Since the Huawei Mate 10 is rumored to break cover in October, it is unlikely to release another powerful phone like Huawei P20 with Kirin 960 to disturb the sales of Mate 10.
