Huawei unveils new series of Mate smartphones with top processor

The battery fuelling the two smartphones is also massive, with both being powered by 4,000mAh one, which is supported by "super fast charging", which it says is four times faster than wireless charging. The smartphones come in a Blue, Pink Gold, Black, and a Champagne Gold color. Alas, in a depressing development that looks to be spreading throughout the industry, there's no 3.5mm headphone jack this year.

Inside there's Huawei's own Kirin 970 chip we saw in September, notable for having a 8-core CPU (for the general maths), a 12-core GPU (for powering graphics), and an NPU - a Neural network Processing Unit that handles calculations relating to artificial intelligence and offloads some of the work to the cloud. The Mate 10 Pro, on the other hand, will cost you $943.

"Today the smartphone is the most important gadget for spend more and more time with our smartphones", said Richard Yu, CEO of Huawei's consumer business group, noting that smartphones are increasingly replacing laptops, TVs and even wallets. In the camera department, there is a 20MP & 12MP dual camera setup on the rear with dual f/1.6 aperture, OIS, PDAF + CAF + Laser + Depth Auto Focus, 2x hybrid zoom, and dual-LED flash.

The Mate 10 Pro is the only one of the two coming to the United Kingdom and Three is so far the only retailer to confirm it will be stocking it.

Huawei is also pitching the Mate 10 as a mobile office with its PC Mode. The Chinese smartphone maker also unveiled a Porsche Design Huawei Mate 10, which is priced at Euro 1,395 (roughly Rs 1,06,600). Both of the devices come with 4GB of RAM, but Huawei will be selling a 6GB variant of the Mate 10 Pro as well.

As well as the Mate 10 Pro, Huawei has also unveiled a Mate 10 which arrives with a slightly smaller 5.9-inch screen, 64GB of storage and the dual-lens camera. The higher configuration for the Mate 10 Pro, with 6 GB RAM and 128 GB storage, will go for 799 Euro ($940).

The Mate 10 Porsche Design is similar to the Mate 10 Pro in the hardware department but boasts automotive surfacing and a sleek handcrafted ceramic-look exterior. We'll update you when we know more. This includes smart split-screen functionality that will adapt to whichever apps you are using, as well as a one-step shortcut that launches your most-used apps with a single long press. They also support Huawei's SuperCharge tech, which sounds just as fast and reliable as the charging tech on the P10 and P10 Plus.

The Mate line has always been Huawei's innovative line, paving the way for the rest of the Huawei lineup and this year is no different. Available in two flavors, the Mate 10 has a 5.9-inch LCD screen with a home button underneath, and 64 GB of storage. It includes 4GB RAM and 64GB of internal storage that can be further expandable via MicroSD slot.

After a phone that's easy to play with one-handed and slip into a modestly-sized pocket or bag?

"With advanced SoC-level AI capabilities, smartphones will be able to perform a variety of tasks such as processing natural languages, including real-time translation; helping users take better photos by intelligently identifying objects and adjusting camera settings accordingly", explained Counterpoint Research Director Peter Richardson.

As for battery life, the same 4000mAh cell is packed into both of these mighty Huawei phones. Despite the fact that the Pro model does benefit from IP67 dust- and water-resistance, the regular Mate 10 receives no such luxury, making do with a "water-resistant" coating instead.
