Huawei Mate 10 will seriously challenge Apple's iPhone 8, company's CEO promises
by Cosmin Vasile / Jul 27, 2017, 2:19 PM
Huawei is currently the world's number 3 smartphone manufacturer, and the Chinese company doesn't show any signs of slowing down. There's no market we can think of where Huawei doesn't sell its handsets, so the next step for the giant would be to try and appeal to even more consumers in those markets.
The number one market where Huawei must pick up the pace in North America where the Chinese company is seriously challenged by Samsung and Apple. Huawei's CEO Richard Yu told Bloomberg in an interview that his company is readying an answer to Apple's iPhone 8, which is expected to be unveiled later this fall.
The answer is called Huawei Mate 10, a new flagship that will be revealed around the same timeframe as the Apple iPhone 8.
It remains to be seen whether or not Apple loyalists will see all those improved features as the reason to switch to an Android smartphone like the Huawei Mate 10. And then there's Samsung, LG, Lenovo and other major brands who want a piece from Apple's market share.

I agree. I always wonder why companies like LG, Huawei don't switch to stock android.

What he hasn't realise is that any hardware can compete with IPhone. There is already a ton of challenging smartphone. It's not about the hardware for the iPhone, it's all about marketing.

Every company wants to compete with the iphone.

Can't compete if none of the big four carriers are stocking the device.

Bring it on Huawei. I'm using a Mate 9 now after selling my galaxy Note 5. Only problem with the Huawei devices are the inferior screen quality. My previous Mate 7 and Mate S and now my Mate 9 screen got cracked within a two months. Gorilla glass 3 just doesn't cut it. I'll be buying either Mate 10 or Note 8.

Hardware is the engine. Software is the transmission. I own the S8 plus, and the iPhone 7 plus. No doubt the Android family has the engine so to speak. But still the software optimization on IOS is unparalleled. Yes I have had a Pixel as well guys nothing to do with bloat. However Android own operating system is full of bloat. Bloat is a program that comes shipped on the phone that cannot be removed easily.

I guess the iPhone has bloat, too, with it's suite of stock apps that cannot be easily removed.

It is very easy to remove the bloat on Android phones much more difficult on IOS devices!
