Huawei introduces Kirin AI processor smartphones

China’s Huawei has unveiled a new line of smartphones that match or even improve on key features offered by Apple or Samsung while undercutting their rivals on price

Huawei Unveils the Long-Awaited Huawei Mate 10 and Huawei Mate 10 Pro

But they vary in actual design. Surprisingly, the normal Mate 10 sports a QHD LCD display rocking a resolution of 2560 x 1440. Both have managed to beat Apple's new iPhone X which has an 81.36% screen-to-body ratio. The 6-inch Huawei Mate 10 Pro features a 18:9 OLED display, high display-body ratio and HDR10 capabilities for dynamic video viewing. Side by side, the Mate 10 Pro sports a Cat.

Huawei is pitching both these phones as the "Real AI Phone" with 25 percent improvement in performance over its predecessor.

On the front of the Mate 10 Pro, there's no home button, meaning the fingerprint scanner has been relocated to back, just below the vertical dual cameras. Both these smartphones will optimize their performance over time, by learning your usage pattern and will optimize these apps for a better performance.

The new phone is powered by 1.8GHz octa-core Huawei HiSilicon Kirin 970 processor. The smartphone comes with 6GB of RAM and 256GB of internal storage.

United Kingdom inflation hits five and a half year high in September
United Kingdom inflation hit 3 per cent in September, its highest rate in five years and slightly above the consensus forecast. It matches the level in April 2012, with the rate last higher in March that year when it reached 3.5%.

Pricing start at 699 euros (Rs 53,000 approx) for 4GB RAM+64GB storage variant of Mate 10.

During IFA Berlin, Huawei Consumer Business Group introduced its first AI mobile chipset, the Kirin 970. The rear dual camera setup is a combination of a 16MP primary sensor and a 2MP secondary sensor. There is a 12MP colour sensor with optical image stabilisation paired to a 20MP monochrome sensor, the addition of which not only allows for the capture of images with depth of field effects but also helps in low-light photography.

Both these smartphones will come with dual SIM support and will support NFC.

On the design front, the Huawei Mate 10 and Mate 10 Pro feature an all-new glass design with trimmed down bezels to match the trend. In short, you will need a Type-C USB to HDMI adapter and connect it to an available monitor and presto, the entire Android experience will be projected onto that monitor. But both have a 4,000 mAh battery with SuperCharge technology and are running Huawei's latest EMUI 8.0, which is based off Android 8.0 Oreo. They can charge up to 58% within 30 minutes. "With the Mate 10 boasting some highly attractive features and a compelling pricepoint, all it needs now is the support of the networks to really get Huawei into the hearts and minds of those on the fence". Initially, the device will be made available in Australia, China, Egypt, Malaysia, Mexico, New Zealand, Philippines, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, Spain, and the UAE. One example is real-time scene and object recognition, which uses AI to identify what's being captured - like stage, person, or even dog, as CNET notes - and adjust the camera to get the best image out of it. Huawei's AI approach is more subtle than the AI assistants like Apple's Siri or Amazon's Alexa or Google's Assistant. Along with the advanced AI capabilities, Huawei is also trying to deliver future-proof smartphones with 4.5G network support.
