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:

    No water proof, fack no!

    1. Fhem says:

      Ip53 means it’s dust and water proof

  4. Araoye Gbadebo says:

    Huawei Mate 10 series is sure going to give Samsung Galaxy S8 and iPhone 8 and X a run for their money.

  5. Fhem says:

    This specs are amazing when compared to the iPhone + the 4000mah battery is a big plus.. But how it performs in real life operation will determine if it stand a chance with the iPhone.
    Misstechy am still waiting for your giveaway.

  6. Oleka Aiykay says:

    A real contender which I’d definitely go for instead of an iPhone

  7. Araoye Gbadebo says:

    Huawei will definitely remain my number one smartphone brand ever, they are 100% sure.

  8. Suleiman says:

    If I hear

  9. ỌBÁDÁRÀ says:

    … WELL, HUAWEI CAN KNOCK APPLE OFF THE SECOND SPOT IN GLOBAL SMARTPHONE SHIPMENT. THESE PHONES ARE POWERFULLY SPECED, BUT THE PD MATE 10 IS GOING THE APPLE WAY TO RIP PEOPLE OFF. MEANWHILE, NOTE 8 AND THE S8 SERIES WILL STILL OUTSELL THE MATES…

  10. tee says:

    These people sef.. . If you want Ip67 And 9;18, you have to forego headphone Jack and expandable storage And vice versa abi…..they don’t even both have oled screensIssokay LG v30, I’m still hailing oo… Gotta give it to them For the battery and processor sha.. Misstechy, how much is it?

  11. Smart says:

    Tecno; “Upcoming… Device to Come with… Innovative camera… similar to… the Samsung Note 8 and iPhone 8 Plus.”
    Huawei; “Mate 10 Pro is 2x faster than the iPhone 8… and more than 25 times faster than a Samsung Galaxy S8…”

    What did iPhone do una sef?
    Okay but the thin bezels got me tho. 😍

  14. tomiwa says:

    So these phones are really cool and all. IMO Huawei ranks 2nd after Samsung in my BEST PHONE MANUFACTURERS. what I don’t like is the removal of the headphone jack just because it seems to be the trend, when they can clearly make room for one. Smh

  15. Cirphrank says:

    Colol one, but these fellas should stop trying so hard to edge someone outta a custom lane they’ve made for theirself!

  16. Ajayi Taiwo says:

    ………… Abeg, hw much is the phone self, bcus i knw it will be close to 1m naira

  17. Isaac says:

    Emmmmm…?! misstechy, i think you made a bit of mistake in your spec sheet about the mate 10 pro. 64/128 storage as in RAM/ROM??!

  18. pwilliams says:

    the phone makes sense, hopefully it would live up to what they said

  19. kenny says:

    Blah, blah, blah give Apple a run for their money and you remove the jack, come on why copy Apple. The design is amazing but it’s just ip53 well nobody will throw their phone into the water on purpose but this trend has gotta stop, Samsung retained the jack and the s8 and note8 are still awesome phones.

  20. Mary-Jane M. says:

    Dammmmmnnn!!!! Those specs are great. Big battery is everything to me and I’ll pick this over the iPhone 8 but not over the Galaxy note 8. Note 8 is bae

  21. Mehn this iPhone is somewhat like a Tech God……
