Huawei Mate 10 and Mate 10 Pro are Official

Given how much Huawei hyped up its "real AI phone", the Mate 10 nearly comes short of expectation. The regular Mate 10 and Mate 10 Pro models come with an all-glass design, as opposed to the all metal construction of the previous generation Mate devices.

We should finally get a glimpse at the Huawei Mate 10 later today at a launch event in Germany.

The Mate 10 and Mate 10 Pro both feature a FullView display with extremely thin bezels on the top and bottom. The Mate 10 Pro comes with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage, which is probably why there's no microSD card slot present.

The other difference lies in the exterior. Huawei have launched some new hardware and software with them and hope that this will lead to a disruption in the smartphone world - disruptive innovation they called it.

The Mate 10 also features a curved rear glass case which has been created to sit more comfortably in the palm of its owners.

A year ago we got the Porsche Design Huawei Mate 9, a rebadged version of the Mate 9 Pro, with a fancy new paint job, a weird custom theme, and a ludicrous 256GB of internal storage.

Both phones feature a 4,000 mAh battery, which is bigger than anything we've seen on a consumer flagship phone so far, though it's worth remembering that battery life ultimately depends on the efficiency of the internal components, the power draw of the screen, and various other factors as well the size of the battery itself. The Mate Pro has an 18:9 OLED panel with an FHD+ resolution, while the Mate 10 has a 5.8-inch quad-HD 16:9 LCD display, Both are capable of displaying HDR content, though that'll need app updates from the likes of YouTube and Netflix. In mid-November, we'll see the Mate 10 Pro launch with an added 128GB+6GB model for €799, along with a special edition Porsche Mate 10 with 256GB of storage and 6GB of RAM for €1395. The Huawei Mate 10 Pro is priced at Euro 799 (roughly Rs. 61,000), and will be up for grabs starting November. Huawei says the dual-sensor rear camera was designed in collaboration with Leica, and that it has the world's largest aperture for a smartphone camera, at f/1.6.

Here's all of the differences between the Mate 10, which isn't coming to the United Kingdom officially, and the Mate 10 Pro. The phone is fueled by one of the most powerful SoCs out there, the Kirin 970, which is Huawei's very own 64-bit octa-core processor, which comes with a dedicated "i7" NPU (Neural Network Processing Unit). On the Mate 10 (below), however, the firm has stuck a teeny fingerprint scanner underneath the screen - which it claims can unlock the device quicker than Apple's Face ID system. Richard Yu claims that Kirin 970 has made their smartphone 20 percent faster than their competitors like iPhone 8 Plus and Samsung Galaxy Note 8. This smartphone also comes with a 4000mAh battery.

The 4-in-1 hybrid focus is driven by Huawei's Advanced Dual Image Signal Processor, with a combination of laser, depth, contrast and phase detection focus to suit any conditions and deliver fast, sharp results. The Mate 10 Pro comes with an IP67 rating, making it dust and water resistant.

The Mate 10 will recognize what you're taking a picture of, and adjust the settings in order to get the best image. The Mate 9 was surprisingly underpowered and didn't last long on a single charge, the Mate 10 is prepared to improve on the shortcomings of its predecessor.

One of the biggest claims is that Huawei's 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. Huawei Mate 10, on the other hand, features an IP53 rating for splash resistance. The smartphones come in a Blue, Pink Gold, Black, and a Champagne Gold color.

For design, the Huawei Mate 10 features a glass body design with curves on all sides and signature reflective stripe on the back.
