Huawei Mate 10 and Mate 10 Pro Are Here And We’re Dang Excited

by | Oct 17, 2017 | Smartphones

Huawei released today its big momma flagships, the Huawei Mate 10 and Huawei Mate 10 Pro. The unveiling happened at a closed event in Munich, Germany, where the Chinese brand spat the lowdown about the flashy, new smartphones.

On this post, we break down everything you need to know about the Mate 10 and the Mate 10 Pro.

Huawei Mate 10 and Mate 10 Pro Specs

Both the Mate 10 and Mate 10 pro are powered by Huawei’s own Kirin 970 chip, a new processor that’s supposed to be significantly more powerful than its previous iteration and has a dedicated NPU (Neural network Processing Unit) that helps it deal with artificial intelligence more effectively. There’s also a new EMUI skin forked from Android Oreo that further improves from its previous version. Finally, a new smart screen feature practically enables users to turn their Mate 10s and Mate 10 Pros into PCs without the need for a dock.

Huawei is also continuing its partnership with premier camera brand, Leica. This means that you can expect top-grade image processing. Here are the full spec sheets for both the Mate 10 and Mate 10 Pro to help you decide which phone is better you.
