Huawei opens pre-orders for Mate 10 with RM999 of goodies

Huawei opens pre-orders for Mate 10 with RM999 of goodies

The Huawei Mate 10 series features dual 4g SIM support and a super-fast LTE connection with dual volte connections and a phone that supports download speeds.

"From a design-side, the Mate 10 marries crowd-pleasing features - such as a high-spec camera which automatically adjusts in different contexts as well as a whopping battery life - with the power of the long-awaited iPhone-beating Kirin 970 chip". What this means is that you will find the same physical home button as you saw on devices previous year with a fingerprint reader embedded in it.

Huawei is pitching both these phones as the "Real AI Phone" with 25 percent improvement in performance over its predecessor. While we can already feel the performance radiating from both of the phones, what will matter is the neural processing unit (NPU) running in the SoC, making the device "smarter" than the competition. Along with the advanced AI capabilities, Huawei is also trying to deliver future-proof smartphones with 4.5G network support. Simply stated, a proper color correction would be employed in order to bring the image result to be as accurate as possible. They're not remarkably different from each other, however. The NPU will also pick the user's regular string of habits and optimize the smartphone experience accordingly. While on the contrary, the Mate 10 Pro device features an extended 6-inch full-HD+ OLED display and supports a screen of 1080×2160 pixels resolution. There is also an 8MP front shooter with f/2.0 aperture for selfies.

Unlike the flagships, the Mate 10 Lite is based on the company's Kirin 659 system chip, a step below the top tier Kirin 970 chip and lacking the latter's artificial intelligence chip. While Mate 10 sports 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage, Mate 10 Pro comes in two variants- one with 6GB of RAM and 128GB internal storage and other with 4GB of RAM and 64GB native storage.

Google Photos will now recognize Luna, Fuzzy and your other pets
Google has said that this feature is now being rolled out in most countries across the globe starting today. This is not the first time Google is paying more attention to your pets.

Because the Mate 10 Pro and Mate 10's AI tricks happen locally - instead of over the cloud - Huawei claims that the phone is able to process all the AI features faster without compromising user's privacy. Just connect the phone to a display with a cable and you get three hours of work done in desktop mode. However, you won't need a dock in this case.

The Huawei Mate 10 comes with a 5.9-inch IPS LCD display with a 1440p resolution, HDR 10 support, a pixel density of 499ppi and up to 730 nits of maximum brightness.

Huawei Mate will be available for sale in many countries, including France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Poland, Thailand and United Kingdom, starting from mid-November, in Mexico, Spain and United Arab Emirates from end of October 10. US pricing remains to be announced. Measuring 154.2 x 74.5 x 7.9mm, the smartphone comes with IP67 rating and also incorporates a fingerprint and infrared sensor.
