Dock for Huawei Mate 10 allows it to be used as a PC with a desktop UI for Android apps?
Samsung's Dex dock offers users a desktop style UI when a Android flavored handset being used is connected to a large screen via the dock. This is obviously an improvement over a simple blown up image of the Android UI that the previous technology was capable of. Now, out of France, comes word that the Huawei Mate 10 will be able to sync with a  Dex-like dock, which will enable users to use a desktop-like UI to access Android apps. This will work even if the phone is connected to a large screen wirelessly through Miracast.

MirAxess CEO Yanis Anteur said in a published report that the Huawei Mate 10 will offer PC style functionality. That partially explains Huawei's recent teaser for the Mate 10 in which the manufacturer emphatically stated that the upcoming device is "not a smartphone." In addition, Huawei calls the Mate 10 an intelligent machine that sees, thinks and learns like a human.

Huawei is now the second largest smartphone manufacturer in the world, behind only Samsung. The Huawei Mate 10 could really help Huawei's market share if the device is as awesome as it appears to be. Powered by the home grown Kirin 970 chipset, which will include a dedicated AI chip, the Mate 10 can apparently be used as a PC with a large screened smart TV as a display. Miracast will be the conduit that connects the phone to a smart TV.


The Huawei Mate 10 will be unveiled October 16th. Check in often for the latest rumors, speculation and news about the device.

I have really been impressed with Huawei and their offerings as of late. They’ve really been bringing it in terms of features for their smartphones. Definitely looking forward to seeing more of what the Huawei Mate 10 has to offer.

So it turns into to a chromebook of sorts, probably not as good though. I do like Huawei so i will give them the benefit of the doubt until it has been released because it could be much better than I imagine.

Samsung releases the Dex, they're copying Windows Phone, Huawei does it and they get a pat on the back...just judging by the comments

No one in these comments said Samsung copied, so not sure why you’re saying that.

And Ubuntu tried to do it before Windows but never got a phone to market. I think it was one of Motorola's phones that did it before that. Microsoft wasn't the first with the idea.

It's a shame Apple doesn't do something like this. The heavy developer support they already have and the power of the A11 would be great.
