While the world was expecting Huawei to launch its flagship phablet, the Mate 10 during the recently concluded IFA 2017. The company has revealed the launch date for the international launch of the device. While the features and some of the hardware specifications of the upcoming device have already been revealed, here is a quick refresher.
Huawei has sent out an official Twitter based invite for the global announcement. It has also confirmed some of the details about the device. The highlight of the new Mate 10 would be the company’s very own Kirin 970 processor. Huawei is aiming at Apple and Samsung and has not shied away from saying that they are better.
“Compared with Samsung and Apple, we have advantages, and users are in for much faster (feature) performance, longer battery life and more compact design,” Richard Yu, chief executive of Huawei’s consumer business said in an interview during the annual IFA 2017.
Dedicated AI Engine
Kirin 970 will be the first smartphone chip featuring a Neural processing engine. The benefits of this new engine will come in the field of Artifical intelligence and Augmented Reality. In addition, the company also claims this chip to be faster and more efficient.

The Huawei Mate 10 is rumored to be a 6-inch device featuring a bezel-less design, which is fast becoming a standard. The one thing that Huawei has confirmed earlier is the dual Leica camera setup at the back of the device.
Huawei is planning to launch not just one but two separate devices under the Mate series. The Mate 10 will definitely be there and the other device could be the Mate 10 Pro.
