Huawei has unveiled its next generation of smartphones built with the world’s first Kirin AI processor to deliver a faster, more personalised mobile experience.
The new Mate 10 and Mate 10 Pro smartphones are opening the doors to AI mobile applications with 25x better performance and 50x greater energy efficiency, delivering real-time responses for scene and object recognition and improved language translation.
The Kirin 970 processor is also an open, mobile AI computing platform so third party developers can create new and imaginative AI applications expanding Huawei’s processing capabilities.
“As we enter the age of intelligence, AI is no longer a virtual concept but something that intertwines with our daily life. AI can enhance user experience, provide valuable services and improve product performance”, said Richard Yu, CEO, Huawei Consumer Business Group.
The two Mate 10 models feature an all-new Huawei FullView Display – the Mate 10 with a stunning 5.9-inch screen and 16:9 display, barely-there-bezel and HDR10 to support vivid colours. The 6-inch Mate 10 Pro features an 18:9 OLED display, high screen-to-body ratio and HDR10 for dynamic video viewing.
The impressive devices are built with a 3D Glass Body, beautifully and symmetrically curved on all four sides for an ergonomic hold. The back of the smartphones feature a reflective band design to highlight the New Leica Dual Camera. The Mate 10 Pro is also IP67 Water and Dust Resistant.
Huawei has again partnered with Leica, this time to co-engineer Mate 10’s dual lens camera. The camera combines 12-megapixel RGB + 20-megapixel monochrome sensors, Optical Image Stabilisation with the world’s largest aperture of f/1.6, AI-powered Bokeh Effect and AI-powered Digital Zoom.
The aforementioned AI-powered Real-Time Scene and Object Recognition automatically chooses the best settings based on the object and scene, supported by an advanced AI-powered Digital Zoom with AI Motion Detection for clearer and sharper pictures.
Mate 10 packs a 4000 mAh high-density battery with a smart battery management system that understands user behaviour and intelligently allocates resources to maximise battery life.
It supports 4.5V / 5A low-voltage fast charging, powering the device from 1 percent to 58 percent in 30 minutes. Additionally, Huawei SuperCharge is the world’s first fast charging technology to receive TÜV Fast-Charge Safety Certification, ensuring safe end-to-end charging.
Huawei Mate 10 64GB in a black colourway will land on Australian shores Nov 15 for the outright price of AUD $899, while the Mate 10 Pro 128GB will retail for $1099 from Dec 4. The pro will be available in blue.
