Huawei Mate 10, the latest flagship series from Huawei, has been finally announced. Last year, the Mate 9 and Mate 9 Pro smartphones from Huawei were really powerful and competed with other high-end flagships from Samsung, LG, Apple, and so on.
The new flagship devices from Huawei will compete with the likes of the Google Pixel 2, LG V30, Galaxy Note 8 and S8, iPhone 8 / 8 Plus and the iPhone X. Among the global markets, the Mate 10 and Mate 10 Pro will be released in Europe first. But we expect key markets like US, Canada, Australia, China and India to get the device pretty soon as well.
While both Mate 10 and Mate 10 Pro feature similar hardware, but there are differences in display size and type between the two phones. The standard Mate 10 features a 5.9-inch LCD display with a resolution of 2,560 x 1,440, while Mate 10 Pro features a slightly larger 6.0 inch OLED display but with a surprisingly smaller 2160 x 1080 screen resolution. Also, the regular Mate 10 carries a 16:9 display ratio while Mate 10 Pro features a 18:9 display.
Among other stuff, both devices feature bezel-less displays, the latest Kirin 970 chipset, dual-cameras from Leica on the back, large 4000mAh battery, Augmented Reality, Facial recognition, and all the latest bells and whistles. The new Kirin 970 chipset comes with an embedded neural processing unit (NPU) chip which facilitates quicker AI related stuff on the device.
Where to Buy Huawei Mate 10 and Mate 10 Pro?
Huawei has only announced Mate 10 pricing and availability for Europe thus far, but we expect the device to launch in other key markets like US, UK, Canada, Australia and (of course) China very soon. That said, the Mate 10 will also be available to buy in other parts of the world once it reaches these key areas.
In Europe, Huawei Mate 10 is priced at €699 ($824) and Mate 10 Pro at €799 ($942). The luxury edition, Mate 10 Pro Porsche Design, is priced at an staggering €1,395 ($1,645). The manufacturer hasn’t yet shared any release date for the launch of these devices in Europe.
Huawei did not mention pricing and other details for US release of Mate 10 at the event. But based on the manufacturers record so far, it shouldn’t take long for the Mate 10 series to launch in the country. Also, the device will probably release as unlocked variant only in US.
