If you believed that there aren’t any great phones left to be unveiled this year, you were completely wrong! Today, during a special event, the all new Huawei Mate 10 was introduced, being the Chinese manufacturer’s answer to the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 and iPhone 8 Plus.
The handset builds on the legacy of last year’s model and rocks a huge 5.9″ display, with a QHD resolution and HDR10 support, for a top notch viewing experience. However, the first thing that catches you attention is definitely the design of the phone!
Less bezels, more cameras
The Huawei Mate 10 is following the current trend and barely has any bezels, while on the back, it rocks a dual camera setup, rumored to be pretty impressive. Specifically, we’re talking about a Leica-certified setup, with f/1.6 aperture, as well as OIS, laser and phase detection autofocus.
There’s a 12MP color sensor on the back, alongside a 20MP black and white one, offering AI-enhanced 2x digital zoom and the possibility to shoot 4K videos, says GSM Arena. Oh, and there’s also an 8MP selfie unit on the front!
Moving on to what’s under the hood, we’re looking at the new Kirin 970, built on the 10nm process, alongside a Mali-G72 Mp12 GPU and 4GB of RAM, while the internal storage capacity counts 64GB. The latter can be expanded easily, using a microSD card.
A battery for days!
If you’re after battery life, you should know that the phone comes with a 4000mAh power pack, working alongside the Huawei SuperCharge technology, able to refill pretty much of the battery in 20 minutes.
The Huawei Mate 10 has just IP53 rating, so it’s not water resistant, but it does have a 3.5mm audio jack, while the spec sheet is completed by the latest version of EMUI, based on Android 8.0.
The handset will be available later this month, in several markets, for around €700.
