The Huawei Mate 10 Pro Comes With A Dedicated Processor To Power AIby Ajinkya October 17, 2017
The Mate 10 wasn’t the only handset Huawei launched at its event in Germany. The Chinese company also unveiled Pro variant. Simply called the Mate 10 Pro, this handset looks similar to the regular Mate 10. It does, however, come with a slightly bigger and much better 6-inch Full HD+ OLED screen. This panel has an aspect ratio of 18:9 with very thin bezels. The Mate 10 Pro comes with IP67 certification, which means that it can withstand dust and water.
The phone is powered by Kirin 970 chipset. It comes with a dedicated NPU (Neural-Network Processing Unit) to handle AI computing requirements. It boasts of 8-core CPU and 12-core GPU. The phone comes with 6 GB RAM and 64 GB internal storage. You can expand it further by adding a microSD card to the hybrid slot, at the expense of a secondary SIM.
The Mate 10 Pro bets big on camera. It offers a dual-lens Leica camera in 12 MP RGB sensor + 20 MP monochrome sensor configuration. It is backed by OIS (Optical Image Stabilisation). The rear camera can record 4K videos. For selfies, you get a more conventional 8 MP front-facing camera. For better results, the Mate 10 uses algorithms to analyse the different types of scene and objects in real time. It can then tweak colour, contrast, brightness, and exposure on the fly to get best results.
The phone packs in a 4000 mAh battery with Huawei’s SuperCharge technology that promises a day’s worth of juice in just 20 minutes of charging. Following the suite of Apple and HTC, Huawei has ditched the 3.5 mm audio jack.
The Mate 10 Pro ships with Android Nougat with Huawei’s EMUI 8.0. The Mate 10 Pro will hit the stores sometime in November. It is set to cost 799 euros (approx. Rs 61,000).
