"Huawei is over-dependent on its home market China where it enjoys the leadership position and operator-centric markets in Europe, Latin America and Middle East", said Richardson. Naturally, the new model will be more powerful than its predecessor and will run a newer version of Android. The specifications of the Mate 10 is nearly entirely known and it includes a 10nm Kirin 970 chip with Artificial Intelligence. The popular rumor right now is that the Mate 10 Pro will be the only variant sporting the bezel-less design.
In any case, currently, we are looking forward to the Huawei Mate 10 and Mate 10 Pro, which will be launched on October 16. That might disappoint some fans, but it does look like the regular Mate 10 will have thinner bezels than the Mate 9. There appears to be a fingerprint sensor at the front which we're assuming will also double as a home button. Thanks to OnLeaks for this new gallery of photos of the Huawei Mate 10.
He added: "The NPU can think and actively work to provide you the best user experience, whereas other A.I. assistance like Google Assistant only works reactively". Apart from this, Huawei will also be announcing a few other products also. There is also obviously a dual camera which Huawei have been doing for a while and we expect it to be more of the same with Huawei's Leica partnership leading to some great shots. And the Mate 10 will retain a 3.5mm audio jack, while charging and data transfer will be done through a USB Type-C port. Meanwhile, everyone is now keeping an eye out for Apple as it prepares to announce the iPhone 8 next week on September 12.
A Huawei top executive claimed that the Chinese OEM is planning to employ artificial intelligence-powered features such as instant image recognition to gain an #Edge over its rivals, #Apple and Samsung, in the global smartphone market. This achievement by Huawei is well in line with the company's goal to be the world's largest smartphone maker in about half a decade's time.
"As we look to the future of smartphones, we're at the threshold of an exciting new era", said Richard Yu, CEO of the Huawei Consumer Business Group, at IFA.
