Huawei Mate 10 and 10 Pro are now official, and are as pretty as they were shown on the leaked renders, coming a variety of stylish colors, and in a screen-to-body ratio to die for. With reinforced glass bodies that have a uniform hue at the front and the back, they are certainly lookers, especially the Porsche Design model that comes with ceramic casing and a …


Huawei Mate 10 vs Galaxy Note 8 vs LG V30: Specs comparison

So, the Mate 10 is here, but is it going to take the crown of the Android space?

Surely, with a large 5.9-inch display, a snappy octa-core Kirin 970 chipset, and a hefty 4,000mAh battery at the rear, the Mate 10 is easily Huawei’s true flagship device of 2017. 

But is that enough to make it a viable alternative to the top dogs on the Android scene right now, the S Pen-boasting Galaxy  Note 8 productivity powerhouse and LG’s multimedia-centric V30 behemoth? 
Only one way to find out:

The new Huawei Mate 10 and Mate 10 Pro: yay or nay?

So, Huawei has just unveiled it’s two new flagship-class handsets — the Mate 10 and Mate 10 Pro — and they are quite impressive. With machine learning and AI being at the core of their UI and assisted by the new super-powered Kirin 970 processor, the new Mates will probably have some secrets up their sleeves to show off.

The two handsets come in their own choices of screen ratio — 16:9 with a 1440 x 2560 (QHD) pixel resolution on the Mate 10, and an 18:9 with a weird 1080 x 2160 pixel resolution on the Mate 10 Pro. In terms of hardware, they don’t differ much, having …

Huawei has just unveiled its new flagship phones: the Huawei Mate 10 and the Mate 10 Pro. And there is something special coming along too: a brand new Porsche Design Huawei Mate with maxed out 256 gigs of storage and a similarly extreme price.
The first two are the mainstream phone, while Porsche Design is a limited edition run, and all are designed to showcase the best of Huawei, with a focus on performance. That is taken care of a brand new chip inside, the Kirin 970, the world’s first with a built-in neural engine.

Render showing both sides of Huawei Mate 10 Lite is here for your viewing pleasure

The other day, Dutch retailer Belsimpel listed the Huawei Mate 10 Lite prematurely. According to the listing, the phone will be offered in November, priced at €349 in Europe (equivalent to $412.66 USD). Today, tipster Evan Blass disseminated a tweet showing both the front and back of the Mate 10 Lite. The 5.9-inch display will feature an aspect ratio of 18:9 just like the Huawei Mate 10 and Huawei Mate 10 Pro, and carry an FHD+ resolution of  1080 x 2160. Ironically, that tops the resolution of the Huawei Mate 10 display.

One interesting note. The Huawei Mate 10 Lite not only has a …

Don't you worry, Huawei Mate 10 will come with Android 8.0 Oreo

Huawei continues to tease information about its flagship and the next thing the Chinese company has decided to talk about is the OS that comes pre-installed on the Mate 10. Just like its predecessor, the Mate 10 will be Huawei’s first smartphone to ship with Android 8.0 Oreo on board.

Its bigger brother, the Mate 10 Pro is likely to run the same version of Android, but we’re not so sure about the Mate 10 Lite. The smartphone was already introduced in Asia under different names, but Oreo is not something that’s listed among the technical specifications.

Retailer confirms Huawei Mate 10 Lite launches in Europe in early November for €349

Huawei Mate 10 is just around the corner, but the flagship won’t come alone. The Chinese company plans to launch many a few derivatives of its Mate 10 meant to cover all price tiers.

The Mate 10 Lite is the mid-range version of Huawei’s flagship. Even though it will retain some the Mate 10 specs like the 18:9 aspect ratio of the display and the amount of memory, it fails to check all the boxes required for a top-tier handset.

For example, Huawei Mate 10 Lite will be powered by a 3,340 mAh battery, whereas the Mate 10 comes with a much larger 4,000 mAh battery. …
