“Huawei’s Mate 10 flagship duo come flaunting ‘AI enabled’ Kirin 970 SoC and massive 4,000mAh batteries”
Last year, Huawei launched its flagship smartphones, the Mate 10 and Mate 10 Pro at an event held in Berlin. These devices flaunted some premium features including the top-of-the-line processor from the brand, AI integration across the board, premium designs and dual cameras. The brand was at the Mobile World Congress 2018 in Barcelona and showcased these two devices at its booth. We bring you a 360-degree view of these smartphones.
Speaking of the specs first, the Huawei Mate 10 flaunts a 5.9-inch display with a resolution of 2,560 x 1,440 pixels and support for HDR 10. The performance of the device is driven by Huawei’s own top-tier Kirin 970 SoC, which comes with a dedicate Neural Processing Unit (NPU). The processor is accompanied by 4GB RAM and 64GB storage, which can be further expanded. Coming to the highlight, the handset flaunts Leica-branded 12-megapixel + 20-megapixel dual cameras in RGB and Monochrome setup on the rear panel. The front shooter is an 8-megapixel unit. Fuelled by a 4,000mAh battery, the device boots EMUI 8.0 based on Android Oreo. Huawei is offering the Mate 10 in Mocha Brown, Champagne Gold, and Black hues.
Coming to the Mate 10 Pro, it retains the same spec sheet from the smaller sibling but with several upgrades. The display is slightly larger at 6-inches, bears an 18:9 aspect ratio and offers full HD+ resolution. The phone gets an additional 6GB RAM + 128GB RAM variant and even a Porsche Design variant with 6GB RAM and 256GB storage. Another addition comes in the form of IP67 rating for protection against water and dust. The Mate 10 Pro comes in Midnight Blue, Titanium Grey, and Mocha Brown colour options.
Having got the details of these handsets out of the way, it is now time to take a look at them from all angles. Here are the galleries of these handsets from Huawei’s booth at MWC 2018.

The Huawei Mate 10 will set you back by €699 (~Rs 53,400), while the Mate 10 Pro costs €799 (~Rs 61,000). However, we do not expect the handsets to land in India since the previous flagships were also given a skip for the Indian market.
