Oh, Hi There, Mate 10! The ‘Supposed’ iPhone Killer.

Sigh.

It seems every Phone maker wants to take a jab at Apple during official announcements, Huawei is the latest. They announced the Mate 10 series, however, during the announcement, the company took several jabs at Apple and even Samsung. One of which is:

Mate 10 Pro is 2x faster than the iPhone 8 at recognizing the content of images and more than 25 times faster than a Samsung Galaxy S8 at the same task.

I am jumping the gun, though.

Like I hinted, Huawei announced three phones under the Mate series —the 5.9-inch Mate 10 (with the fingerprint sensor embedded in the front) the 6-inch Mate 10 Pro and a Porsche Design edition of the Pro.

They all use the company’s new Kirin 970 SoC which includes a Neural-Network Processing Unit that offers AI-based enhancements and machine learning capabilities.

Both devices have all glass designs with thin bezels and a screen-to-body ratio that is higher than the iPhone X, (The CEO was the one who pointed this out).

As far as specs are concerned, here you go:
