Rumours had been there that the successor to the Huawei Mate 9 will sport a near bezel-less display. In an Interview with Bloomberg, Richard Yu, the CEO of Huawei said that the Huawei Mate 10 will be launched in September around the same time that Apple might release the iPhone 8. He also said that the Mate 10 will have many exciting features and that the device will better than the next generation iPhone. He also mentioned that the phone will come with a full-screen display, longer battery life, quicker charging, better photography, and much more. Seeing that full-screen displays have become a trend these days we are not surprised that various smartphone companies want to jump on the trend to make a quick buck.
“We will have an even more powerful product. The Mate 10, which has much longer battery life with a full-screen display, quicker charging speed, better-photographing capability and many other features that will help us compete with Apple,”
Richard Yu, CEO Huawei.
This comment has come out just after the company reported a slowdown in smartphone shipments this year. The company is estimated to do just marginally better than the previous year. Huawei has claimed that the reason behind this is that they have been chasing profits instead of going for volume. The company plans on doing this by shifting its focus towards high-end smartphones.
Previously reports had pointed towards Huawei developing an Artificial Intelligence processor which it would include in its future smartphones. However, in the interview, Mr. Richard Yu did not say anything about this. Rumours have also suggested that to make the Huawei Mate 10 to compete with the next iPhone, the company will put this in the smartphone. It was also reported that the Mate 10 will feature facial recognition, Iris scanner, support for AR, and might come with a 3D sensor as well. This smartphone might be powered by Huawei’s own HiSilicon Kirin 970 processor which is based on the 10nm technology.
This is what we know so far about the specifications of the Huawei Mate 10 from the leaks and reports, It will feature a 6-inch Quad HD display with an 18:9 aspect ratio. It is expected to feature a camera setup made by Leica, the camera brand. And as per the statement which was given by the CEO of Huawei, we can expect the phone to launch in September.
