Chinese smartphone brand Huawei has announced its Mate 10 and Mate 10 Pro smartphones, which the company promises will leverage AI to kickstart a new era in smartphone experiences.

“As we enter the age of intelligence, AI is no longer a virtual concept but something that intertwines with our daily life. AI can enhance user experience, provide valuable services and improve product performance,” said Richard Yu, CEO, Huawei Consumer Business Group. 

Both the Mate 10 and Mate 10 Pro come powered by Huawei's Kirin 970, which features a dedicated neural network processing unit. They also boast a 3D Glass Body featuring an almost bezel-less FullView Display with support for HDR10 content. The Mate 10 Pro is also IP67 Water and Dust Resistant.

Camera-wise, the two phones tout the same Leica Dual Camera (f/1.6) setup of their predecessors. However, this time, the feature comes integrated with the Kirin 970's AI-capabilities. Huawei say this allows for real-time scene and object recognition (which automatically configures the camera settings based on the object being framed) and support for an advanced AI-powered Digital Zoom function with better Motion Detection.

Both the Huawei Mate 10 and Mate 10 Pro also pack in a 4000 mAh battery with Huawei's SuperCharge tech and AI-powered battery management software.

The two phones also support streamlined output to a desktop monitor, a la Samsung's DeX.

In Australia, the Huawei Mate 10 will be available through Vodafone and the open channel in black from November 15th. It will be priced at an SPR of $899.

Meanwhile, the Huawei Mate 10 Pro will be an Opus-exclusive, available in blue and carry an SRP of $1099.

The announcement comes less than a week after Huawei announced local availability for the Nova 2i.

Ultimately this laptop has achieved everything I would hope for in a laptop for work, while fitting that into a form factor and weight that is remarkable.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

Jack Jeffries

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
