Huawei Announces Mate 10, Mate 10 Pro Flagship Smartphones
Getting on board with the skinny-bezel trend for its latest phones, Chinese tech giant Huawei has just unveiled its new Mate 10 and Mate 10 Pro flagship smartphones featuring a Kirin 970 CPU, 4GB of RAM, a 4,000mAh battery, 64GB of storage, and dual cameras with f/1.6 lenses (via The Verge). The Mate 10 features a 5.9-inch 2560 x 1440 LCD while the Mate 10 Pro’s display is a 6-inch 2160 x 1080 OLED display.
Huawei’s new smartphones feature glossy glass construction and come in “mocha brown” or “pink gold,” with additional black and gold finishes for the Mate 10 and blue and gray colorways for the Pro. There’s also a Porsche Design special edition Mate 10 Pro with a “diamond black” finish. The Pro has an additional variant as well, with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage, while the Porsche Design model comes with 6GB of RAM and 256GB of storage.
Huawei also claims that its AI processing will be able to significantly reduce the phone’s performance degradation over time, which the company has identified as a major problem with Android devices in general.
The company has set European pricing at €699 (US $824) for the Mate 10, €799 (US $942) for the Mate 10 Pro and €1,395 (US $1,645) for the Porsche Design Mate 10 Pro. Pricing and availability for the US and Canada have not yet been announced.
