Huawei Unveils the Mate 10 & Mate 10 Pro Smartphones
It's all about the AI, Mate
Huawei has announced its new Mate 10 Series, which are designed to open the door to new AI mobile applications.
The Huawei Mate 10, Huawei Mate 10 Pro, and Porsche Design Huawei Mate 10 are heralded as ‘breakthrough AI devices’ that combine innovative hardware, the Kirin 970 chipset and EMUI 8.0, which is based on Android 8 Oreo.
“As we enter the age of intelligence, AI is no longer a virtual concept but something that intertwines with our daily life. AI can enhance user experience, provide valuable services and improve product performance,” said Richard Yu, CEO, Huawei Consumer Business Group. “The Huawei Mate 10 Series introduces the first mobile AI-specific Neural Network Processing Unit, launching a new era of intelligent smartphones.”
The Huawei Mate 10 and Huawei Mate 10 Pro are the first devices powered by the new Kirin 970 processor and deliver AI enhancements for a faster, more customised mobile experience. The Kirin 970 features an octa-core ARM Cortex CPU, a first-to-market Mali-G72 12-core GPU and the first NPU designed specifically for a mobile device.
The specialized NPU, combined with Huawei’s HiAI mobile computing platform, means the Kirin 970 delivers 25x better performance and 50x greater energy efficiency for AI-related tasks, compared to four Cortex-A73 cores.
With an all-new Huawei FullView Display, the Huawei Mate 10 features a 5.9-inch screen with a 16:9 display, barely-there-bezel and HDR10 support. The 6-inch Huawei Mate 10 Pro features an 18:9 OLED display, high screen-to-body ratio and also HDR10 for dynamic video viewing.
Huawei has partnered with Leica to co-engineer the dual-lens camera for the Huawei Mate 10 Series. They combine 12-megapixel RGB + 20-megapixel monochrome sensors, Optical Image Stabilization (OIS), dual lenses with a large aperture of f/1.6, AI-powered Bokeh Effect and AI-powered Digital Zoom.
The Huawei Mate 10 and Huawei Mate 10 Pro pack a 4000 mAh high-density battery featuring a smart battery management system that understands user behaviour and intelligently allocates resources to maximize battery life.
The Huawei Mate 10 goes on sale towards the end of October 2017 while the Mate 10 Pro and Porsche Design Huawei Mate 10 will be available at the end of November 2017.
