Chinese electronics manufacturer Huawei has released the latest in its larger format smartphones - the Mate 10 and new Mate 10 Pro - and they are expected to land in South Africa in November. The Pro has a rear fingerprint-sensor, IP67-waterproofing, and IR blaster.
The cameras on both devices are the same: a dual lens system consisting of a 20-megapixel monochrome sensor and a 12-megapixel RGB sensor with optical image stabilization.
Huawei launched its new flagship smartphone, the Mate 10, that comes with its own artificial intelligence (AI) chip on Monday.
According to OEM, the Kirin 970 is the first smartphone processor which happens to be the first SoC to include neural-network processor unit (NPU), however, its sound bit confusing as Apple's A11 bionic chipset already happen to have dual neural processing units. You have a hybrid SIM card slot, so you can choose whether to use this phone as a dual SIM device or instead make use of it as a single SIM + microSD card phone.
Both smartphones are running Huawei's in-house Kirin 970 made on the 10nm FinFET architecture. Surprisingly, the normal Mate 10 sports a QHD LCD display rocking a resolution of 2560 x 1440. While Mate 10 comes with a headphone jack, its bigger sibling, Mate 10 Pro doesn't have one.
The Huawei Mate 10, Mate 10 Pro, and the Porsche Design edition have a lot of specifications in common. Aside from the Kirin 970, the impeccable performance of Mate 10 Pro has been ensured thanks to 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage, which is more than enough to tuck in most of your data. The displays on both these smartphones feature HDR10 support.
Now, let's talk about the Huawei Mate Pro specs. Both smartphones will come with a Type C USB 2.0 port. Well, guess what? The smartphone has just gone official in Europe as well as in China. Apparently, Huawei is not interested in building an AI assistant.
The Mate 10 Pro loses out on a 256GB expandable storage, which the standard Mate 10 gets.
"There is no other smart phone in this world now that has AI". Huawei even moved from the 5.1 to the 8.0 version to feature some AI-related functions, and, of course, keep up with Google's Android 8.0 Oreo.
