Huawei’s CEO Richard Yu confirmed that it will be launching the Mate 10 and Mate 10 Pro at an event in Munich on October 16. The company’s latest flagship will make use of its Kirin 970 chipset based on the 10nm fabrication process.
LG is all set to unveil its next flagship handset, the V30, in just over a week from now. Most of the details about the V30 has already leaked, and today, we get to feast our eyes on another set of press renders of the device.
Huawei has been growing rapidly in Europe and China but the company despite its repeated attempts has been unable to make headroom into the US smartphone market. The Chinese company has so far tried to sell its premium flagship phones in the US through an unlocked model which does not particularly do well in the country.
The Huawei Mate 10 is expected to be the company’s next big thing, following in the footsteps of the Mate 8 and Mate 9. While there’s very little that we know about the handset, the company CEO, Richard Yu, has spilled some details on the handset.
Huawei has been using its in-house developed Kirin chipsets on its devices since a few years now. With the advent of artificial intelligence, Huawei is now looking to launch a mobile application processor featuring a CPU, GPU, and an AI chip.
It’s been 30 years since China’s first KFC outlet opened. To commemorate this landmark feat, the retail giant has decided to offer up a limited edition smartphone in partnership with Huawei. The phone is colored entirely in Red and comes with the iconic Colonel Sanders marking on the back panel.
A year on (from the P9) and a subtle shift in emphasis for the latest Huawei consumer flagship – the company has gone all out for the most profitable sector of the market, traditionally dominated by Apple with the iPhone. Here we have front-mounted fingerprint sensor and home control, rounded aluminium unibody that’s almost indistinguishable from the iPhone 6S, plus a raft of cosmetic options – and a suitably iPhone-like bump up in price by over £100. Which is not to say that the P10, reviewed here, isn’t a great little smartphone – it is. It’s just perhaps not the one you should actually choose.
In addition to the Huawei P10 and P10 Plus, Huawei also launched the successor to the Huawei Watch: the Huawei Watch 2 and Watch 2 Classic. The two different variants of the smartwatch offer widely different features and cater to a wider range of consumers.
