Huawei Mate 10, Pro aim for iPhone X release war

Huawei Mate 10, Pro aim for iPhone X release war

Huawei announced its new Mate 10 and Mate 10 Pro flagships at an event in Berlin this morning, and like so many other smart devices these days, the focus is firmly on AI. However, Huawei is looking to take things one step further by outfitting its Kirin 970 CPU - the brains of the operation in the Mate 10 and Mate 10 Pro - with a Neural Network Processing Unit for onboard artificial intelligence.

Huawei Mate 10 specs, renders leak ahead of next week’s reveal

Huawei Mate 10 specs, renders leak ahead of next week’s reveal

Almost all the premiere 2017 smartphone race horses are in. Well, almost. Aside from a OnePlus 5T that may or may not happen next month, we're also waiting for Huawei's last word for the year. As the manufacturer that really kicked the whole dual camera trend into full gear, Huawei will have to really step up its game this year. And it does seem that the Huawei Mate 10 will be pulling out all the stops. Except, perhaps, for its screen, which might not exactly be surprising.

Huawei Mate 10 rumored to have Samsung DeX-like feature

Huawei Mate 10 rumored to have Samsung DeX-like feature

Samsung may have just revived the "Phone as your PC" idea with its DeX platform and it seems to have inspired another OEM to follow suit. Whispers are going around that Huawei, who now ranks as one of the world's top three smartphone makers (depending on which market analyst you ask) is reportedly planning on a similar feature that will turn the upcoming Huawei Mate 10 into a PC desktop when connected to some peripherals. The difference, however, might be that, unlike Samsung DeX, Huawei's implementation might work with other docks and connectors as well.

Huawei Mate 10 Pro leak shows a rear fingerprint sensor

Huawei Mate 10 Pro leak shows a rear fingerprint sensor

The Huawei Mate 10 is one confused smartphone. Not unlike the iPhone X when it was still known as the iPhone 8, there are conflicting rumors and leaks surrounding Hauwei’s late 2017 flagship. Most of the revolve around a rather basic thing: where the fingerprint sensor will be placed. That said, its placement might actually also lead to whether or not it will have a nearly bezel-less screen. This latest live photos show that fingerprint scanner on the back, beneath a horizontal camera “pill”, but the text that accompanies it isn’t exactly reassuring.

Huawei Maimang 6 official, 18:9 screen, 4 cameras

Huawei Maimang 6 official, 18:9 screen, 4 cameras

Even before the Huawei Mate 10 could break cover, it seems that its "smaller" sibling has gotten a head start. In China, Huawei officially revealed the Maimang 6. A weird name for English-speaking markets, the smartphone might be known internationally by another name: the Mate 10 Lite. If true, then we are already getting a glimpse of the direction tht Huawei is taking its handsets, which, unsurprisingly, includes an 18:9 "FullView" display and an odd but totally not groundbreaking "quad-camera" system.

Huawei Mate 10 Lite leaked with 18:9 screen, four cameras

Huawei Mate 10 Lite leaked with 18:9 screen, four cameras

Normally, Huawei’s flagship launches don’t get as much coverage as, say, Samsung or Apple, even after it kicked up its marketing in the US starting with the Huawei P9. But thanks to a rather bold boast, all eyes will be on the Chinese OEM when it launches the Huawei Mate 10 in less than a month. But that phone won’t be alone in October. It will reportedly be joined by a Mate 10 Pro and a Mate 10 Lite. While we know little about the “Pro” model, this recent leak about the Huawei Mate 10 Lite seems to hint that this poorly named smartphone might even steal the Mate 10’s spotlight.

Huawei promotes Mate 10 “real AI phone” by mocking Face ID

Huawei promotes Mate 10 “real AI phone” by mocking Face ID

Face ID is perhaps the most contentious iPhone X feature next to the notch and amojis. The public demo’s seeming failure, which Apple has tried to explain away, seems to only add to the skepticism of Apple’s Touch ID replacement. Smelling blood, Huawei lost no time in trying to take a swipe at Apple. But it’s only able to do so because it believes it has the “real AI phone”, and it’s inviting the world to see it next month when it unveils the Huawei Mate 10.

Google reportedly stopping all Nexus 6P RMAs

Google reportedly stopping all Nexus 6P RMAs

If you ask around Android circles, you’ll probably be surprised (or not) to find out that the Nexus 5 is largely regarded as the best, and probably last greatest, Nexus phone. While definitely not perfect, everything that followed were significantly less perfect. And the last Nexus phone made, the Nexus 6P, is to date, an unmitigated disaster. Tired perhaps of the never ending requests to return defective units, Google is now reported to have changed its mind and will no longer replace what is probably the last of the Nexus line.

Huawei Mate 10 leaked photos show no front home button

Huawei Mate 10 leaked photos show no front home button

Huawei has already revealed when they plan to announce their next flagship, the Mate 10 and Mate 10 Pro. They also teased how the company’s new Kirin 970 processor, with a fancy built-in “neural processing unit” and dual ISPs, is going to run circles around the Samsung S8. Of course, it hasn’t yet revealed what the Mate 10 will look like but, thanks to the power of the Internet, we might already know what it will look like anyway. And, at least based on these two photos from two different sources, it’s not going to be so different from the Mate 9 before it after all.

Huawei beat Apple in smartphone sales, for now

Huawei beat Apple in smartphone sales, for now

Has Apple finally lost its touch? That depends on how you see it and, more importantly, when. According to Counterpoint Research, Apple is no longer the number 2 smartphone vendor in the world, but it’s still in the top 3. Actually, it is exactly number 3, with Huawei taking up that precious second spot. At least for now. Android fans, don’t worry, Samsung is still number one. Again, at least for now.

Huawei Mate 10 renders show only one significant change

Huawei Mate 10 renders show only one significant change

Although the trend on high-end smartphones seems to be going bezel-less, there are still a few holdouts. Sony, for example, just loves bezels, not to mention thick bodies. And while not as much, Huawei doesn’t seem to be too eager to jump on that bandwagon just yet. In renders made by'OnLeaks for CompareRaja , the upcoming Huawei Mate 10 looks almost identical to the Mate 9 last year save for one single thing: a front home button.
