Currently, Huawei’s Mate 9 is one of the best big phone you can buy right away, but the Taiwan-based company is very much promising the next one will be even better than the one which is available now. Here are the details on what the CEO affirmed about.
Huawei CEO, Richard Yu has confirmed the Mate 10 as well as reaffirmed that it will be more powerful than the new iPhone. Huawei has already announced that it has shipped 73 million smartphones during the first six months, up to 21-percent YoY. The head of Huawei’s consumer division, Richard said that the company has shipped more than six million P10 since the launch. During an interview with Bloomberg, he also said that the phone will be even more powerful product compared to its predecessor.
Just as anticipated, now been confirmed by Huawei’s CEO that the next flagship phablet will be called Mate 10. With that said, he the CEO also suggests that the phablet series will feature a full-screen display, rather not going for the Quad HD or anything like that. Other internals and external elements are also been tipped, like it will have support for fast charging, better cameras and more feature-rich additions to compete with the likes of Apple’s iPhone 8.
Fortunately, the CEO said that the company planning to exit entry-level smartphone segment due to low profits/revenue and purely focus on mid-range as well as high-end devices. “We are giving up the very low-end devices because the margin in this is extremely low, and it’s not making enough profit for us,” he said in the interview.
He said that we take to mean “near bezelless,” joining the defining trend of 2017 in the smartphone world with the launch of Huawei Mate 10. An edge-to-edge screen was rumored for the Mate 10 at the beginning of the month, and today everything is given wisely. Under-the-hood, we can expect the Mate 10 would be powered by the upcoming Kirin 970 chipset, but Yu stayed mum on that aspect. Nevertheless, he did however promised that the mate 10 would have “longer battery life,” better photograpgy capabilities and much more.
Additionally, Yu announced that Huawei will be giving up on the low-end hardware, so the future expect to only see mid-range gadgets and top-end Huawei smartphones. As you all know about Huawei’s recent flagships have Leica lenses, so the Mate 10 is also assumed and may see a dual rear camera setup, too. The aforementioned smartphone is expected to be unveiled at the IFA 2017 keynote in Berlin – September.
Rumored Huawei Mate 10: Specifications
- A bezel-less, 6-inch, 2:1 display
- A 2,160 x 1,080 resolution
- A dual-lens front-facing camera with 3D face scanning skills
- Water resistance?
Hopefully Huawei will drop the price back down a little for the Huawei Mate 10 considering the $599.99 (£579, AU$999) price of the Mate 9 is pretty expensive. Stay tuned for more!
