“The iPhone X is not as smart and sophisticated as Apple wants to make us believe. The Huawei Mate 10 is just a smart device “That is essentially the message that Huawei wants to give us. In a recently released video, the Chinese phone maker takes on its American competitor. How? by making a cool video about Face ID Recognition.
At the end of February, Huawei introduced its latest flagship, the Huawei P10, and Huawei P10 Plus. In the meanwhile, the smartphone manufacturer has decided to reveal her latest flagships. Of course, we are talking about the devices in the Huawei Mate 10 series. According to the latest reports from the rumor circuit, we can expect at least three different models: the regular Mate 10, the expensive and exclusive Mate 10 Plus or Mate 10 Porsche Design and the Mate 10 Lite entry. On Monday, October 16 we know more. Then one or more devices will be officially taken out at a press event in Munich.
Huawei’s marketing campaign about the Huawei Mate 10 is strange. At the end of July, Richard Yu, CEO of Huawei, said in an interview with Bloomberg that the Huawei Mate 10 ‘is much better and more powerful than iPhone 8, the flagship of Apple announced last week. According to the top man, the Huawei Mate 10 has a better battery life, full-screen display, best performance and better camera than the parade horse’s eyepiece.
One of the Australian branch of Huawei tweet that, the company is getting a hard cut to Samsung. The South Korean smartphone maker had just presented the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 at that time. It is the first flagship of the Koreans with a dual-camera system. Huawei has already launched several devices that have a dual camera behind. And that did not mean that the manufacturer did not go under chairs or banks. In the controversial tweet, Huawei added an image entitled “Welcome to the dual camera family”, including the Huawei P9 and P9 Plus and the subsequent flagship dual-camera system. Of course, the introductory date was also subtly mentioned. In other words, “We have long dual-camera flagships; you’re hopelessly behind the facts.”
In a new video, Apple is again the victim of Huawei’s marketing campaign. During the presentation of the iPhone X, Apple wanted to demonstrate its latest security option Face ID. That was not entirely according to plan. When Craig Federighi, senior vice president of Apple Software Engineering, tried to unlock his device with Face ID, did not recognize the device on his face. During the presentation, he made jokes about why his face was not recognized, but it is obviously a blunder on the highest level. Huawei takes this opportunity to further measure the incident with the video below.
Huawei’s video ends with the hashtag #TheRealAIPhone, the real phone with artificial intelligence (AI). It is a reference to the Neural Networking Processing Unit or NPU in the new HiSilicon Kirin 970 chip. According to Huawei, this chipset is much more capable than Apple’s flagship A11 Bionic Hexa-core processor.
Huawei Mate 10 Specifications and Features
Over the past months, we have heard a lot about the Huawei Mate 10. Thus, it’s no secret now that the flagship is powered by the HiSilicon Kirin 970. This processor we saw at the IFA exhibition is the faster, more powerful and efficient successor to the Kirin 960. It consists of eight cores that make clock speeds up to capable of reaching 2.4 GHz. The graphics capability of the chipset has been boosted by the new Mali-G72 GPU.

Huawei Mate 10 is a 6.1-inch AMOLED screen that covers almost the front and this might be called the Entire View Display. According to rumors, this screen receives a Quad HD resolution of 2560 at 1440 pixels.
Furthermore, the Huawei Mate 10 is reportedly equipped with 6 GB of work memory and 64 GB (expandable) memory. What we know 100 percent is that the flagship gets a dual camera system. It is equipped with Leica lenses, but probably also with optical and/or electronic image stabilization, optical zoom and Phase Detection Autofocus (PDAF). Finally, we heard about a 4000 mAh battery -not as much power as its predecessor and Android 7.1.1 Nougat with EMUI 5.1. It would not surprise us if the flagship is delivered with Android 8.0 Oreo, the latest version of Google’s operating system.
