Mate 10 Pro does bring few more enhancements to the already-powerful Mate 10. Although it won’t be sporting a Quad HD resolution, it will now come with FullView Display, barely-there-bezel and HDR10 technology for intensely vivid and bright colours.

It also features a reliable and robust glass casing both front and back, for a uniquely elegant design. An innovative technique is used to heat the toughen rear glass to 700°C before shaping, to deliver the ultimate style. There’s also going to be IP67 certification which makes it dust and water resistant.

Now let’s talk about the AI processor and what it is all about. The Kirin 970 processor boosts speed, responsiveness and efficiency through its AI computing platform with a dedicated NPU (Neural-Network Processing Unit). Efficiency is boosted by up to 50 times while performance is up by 25 times. All thanks to the cutting-edge 10 nm tech, an 8-core CPU and 12-core GPU. Premium performance at lightning speeds while using much less power.

With the partnership with legendary German company set to grow even bigger, Mate 10 Pro will be featuring a new Leica Dual Lens with f/1.6 aperture, that lets you take beautiful shallow depth of field pictures, crystal clear low-light photographs and blur-free shots of objects on the move. The 20MP monochrome sensor and 12MP RGB sensor with Optical Image Stabilization captures more light.

There’s also some AI found on the camera, where it will be powering up the real-time scene and object recognition. With intelligent photographic algorithms, the HUAWEI Mate 10 Pro identifies, in real-time, different types of views and object, it will automatically adjust colour, contrast, brightness, exposure and more; to produce vibrant, sharp, perfectly framed photographs.

Even the bokeh effect will receive the AI treatment, where it can ‘learn’ from our data cache of portrait images. It can then seamlessly evoke a professional bokeh effect by shifting the focal point onto the subject of the photograph, for picture-perfect portraits and selfies.

With a powerful camera at your hands, you will bound to take lots and lots of pictures with it. There are two options for you to choose from, either 64GB or 128GB of internal storage. Whichever you choose, feel free to upgrade to 256GB via the available expansion slot.

Battery-wise, the 4000 mAh battery is more than capable to power up the smartphone for a full day of use. There’s the smart battery management that learns from user behaviours to intelligently allocate resources where power-waste is minimised, and battery life is maximized. In just 30 minutes of charge, it will reach 58% which is amazing.

Last but not least, the latest Android Oreo 8.0 will be available right out of the box with the Mate 10 Pro. This ensures that you have the best software running side-by-side with the best hardware around.
