Huawei: Mate 10 "is not a smartphone"

Huawei: Mate 10 "is not a smartphone"


Huawei today revealed a brand new teaser video with the purpose of making fans excited about the upcoming Mate 10 smartphone series. In the video - embedded below - Huawei actually argues that the Mate 10  "is not a smartphone", but "an intelligent machine," as it sees, thinks, and learns "like us, for us."  



 



The video also shows a dual rear camera (we already knew about this), and a metallic frame. According to rumors, the Mate 10 series will include three smartphones - a regular Mate 10, a Mate 10 Lite, and a Mate 10 Pro.



 



As previously reported, the Mate 10 series will have AI (Artificial Intelligence) built in, thanks to Huawei's brand new octa-core Kirin 970 processor. The company mentioned that this would be the "world's first mobile AI chip with a dedicated NPU (Neural Processing Unit)" - it remains to be seen how useful that is.  



 



We're certainly looking forward to finding out what the Huawei Mate 10 can offer in terms of Artificial Intelligence and overall performance. Huawei will officially unveil the Mate 10 family on October 16 in Munich. Stay tuned!

Neural processing unit? One day it will evolve and say "F**k off Joe, go send your messages by yourself" :)

I can see it now: "Joe, voluntarily texted your wife confessing your love for your mistress. No more side pieces, Joe."

I'm not worrying until it asks me if I know where Sarah Connor is.

AI is good and all but it is also scaring. Just think if one day it becomes Skynet or Ultron. The horror!

I think opposite. If your name is Annie, it would regularly ask if you're OK. What a thoughtful phone ot would be.

Sounds like typical marketing hype-rbole to me. Like when the iPhone changes everything, again, year after year.

That's what companies do.. marketing is all about exaggeration... Every company does that.

So sloppy how the term AI is bandied about: it confuses people as to exactly what it means. With Siri, Cortana and Alexa, we already have types of AI via our smartphones, though the phone is an access point, with the AI in the cloud. Will be interesting to see how Huawei plays this...

huawei is the most shameless me-too company i know. when they heard rumor about apple's force touch iphone, they immediately released a force touch phone weeks before apple just for bragging right, they did the same thing with dual-lens cameras. now apple is charging higher prices for their new iphones. they are most likely gonna charge more for their "premium devices" but they are not even in same league as samsung or apple in device support and/or camera quality this whole AI hype is probably huawei's way of introducing their Cortana/Siri/Alexa/Bixby/Google assistant competitor that does exactly the same thing or less with little to no future support. nothing to see here. move along

I'll give you force touch, but dual cameras were going on since the likes of the HTC Evo (I think). If a company senses a trend starting why wouldn't they release something that goes with the trend... You don't think Apple saw the trend coming resulting in the release of their dual snapper (LG G5/G6). Huawei is a pretty decent company with some high quality devices, with great processors and UX.

Huawei introduced dual camera in Dec 2014 with the Honor 6 plus. Iphone 7 plus was released on Sept 2016. FAIL.

This is false, Huawei has spent billion on Research and Development, take a look at their products before you call them "most shameless me-too company". It is Apple that is a shameless company that is stealing, other people's work and coping other companies technologies. What Apple does is wait for a new device with new technology to come, change little things and copy it and say "this is the future" and the gullible masses believe the crap Apple is putting out. "this whole AI hype is probably huawei's way of introducing their Cortana/Siri/Alexa/Bixby/Google assistant competitor that does exactly the same thing or less with little to no future support. nothing to see here. move along." Did you test their new phone and see what it does? I thought so.

"they are most likely gonna charge more for their "premium devices" but they are not even in same league as samsung or apple in device support and/or camera quality," Take a look at the Mate 9, it came in 2016 and it still beats Samsung devices and Apple devices that came in 2017 in some things.

How does Mate 9 beat Apple and Samsung devices. Please elaborate.

Wrong. The Honor Magic came out in very limited release in China last year with this type of technology and this is obviously an evolution. It also follows the new trend in China of smart supermarkets which Xiaomi are opening and involves learning your shopping habits, pre-selecting items, pre-packaging for pick up or delivery, even cooking them for in store consumption or delivery. So Huawei aren't copying Crappl, it's the other way around. A friend who lives in China says that the use of this technology is becoming more common for most everyday tasks.

I doubt this is going to be any better than any AI available right now. Knowing Chinese companies, it will probably be an exact copy of what's already on the market.

I'm not sure why my brain ordered my hands to type Berlin instead of Munich. Fixed, thanks!

Huawei is clearly hyping and i hope they have many real world AI functions with Mate 10 rather than just future potential.
