According to data from Chinese insiders, the release date of Huawei Mate 10 is scheduled for October 2017, that is, a month before the predecessor.
Thus, this year, Huawei slightly boosts events to sell as many smartphones of this model until the New Year. Moreover, serious competitors are planned at least two: Apple iPhone 8 and Samsung Galaxy Note 8.
At the same time, it is already known that Galaxy Note 8 will be presented on August 23, and will be available on sale in September, though not in all countries. And as to the timing of the appearance of the eighth apple phone in the market, there is absolutely no clarity.
In any case, Huawei should take the time to not be late for the “section of the pie”. Moreover, in the fall, flagship smartphones with large frameless displays from other Chinese manufacturers may appear.
In general, from the announcement of Huawei Mate 10 expect a lot of interesting. According to the statements of Richard Yu, one of the top managers of the company, during the interview for the publication of Bloomberg, the novelty will surpass even the Apple iPhone 8 for a number of indicators:
- More powerful “hardware” (not very hard to believe, but let’s see how the situation will develop).
- Dual main camera, which includes a pair of sensors with an apparently unbelievable resolution of 20 Mp + 34 Mp. Also expected three time’s optical zoom and high-quality optics from Leica.
- Dual front camera with the possibility of three-dimensional scanning of faces. This function will be used as an alternative to the fingerprint scanner when the screen is unlocked.
- Support for additional reality.
- A large 6-inch display with a resolution of Full HD + 2160 × 1080 pixels and a matrix produced by JDI.
- High autonomy due to the presence of a very impressive battery with a capacity of 4900 mAh.
- A new version of the operating system Android O (the exact commercial name is not yet known) with the proprietary shell of the new generation EMUI 6.0.
It is interesting that the presentation of Huawei Mate 10 can go not at the “homeland” of the gadget in the Middle Kingdom, but in one of the European countries. At the moment, the company views Europe as one of the key markets for itself and is even ready to abandon the release of cheap smartphones.
