With the Huawei Mate 10 to be priced at RM2,699 and the Mate 10 Pro expected to be priced below RM3,400, Huawei is ensuring the P10 Plus remains attractive for consumers. Up front, there is a 13-megapixel shooter and another 2MP camera, also working together.

Huawei launched its new flagship smartphone, the Mate 10, that comes with its own artificial intelligence (AI) chip on Monday.

Expanding its lineup of mid-range handsets, Chinese handset manufacturers have just concluded with the release of a new handset dubbed Huawei 10 Lite. As the name suggests, the smartphone is the less powerful variant of the Huawei Mate 10 and will be sold for Euro 400 (roughly Rs 30,500).

Other vital features include a 5.9-inch display on Mate 10 and six-inch screen on Mate 10 Pro, a dual-lens camera with color and monochrome sensors, big battery with fast charging capabilities, and Google's latest Android 8.0 operating system. Not to forget, the 5.5-inch display has a sharp 2560 x 1440 resolution, while the dual rear camera is among no slouch, either.

The Mate 10 will come with 4GB RAM and 64GB storage, and on the other hand the Huawei Mate 10 Pro will come in two combinations - 4GB RAM and 64GB storage and the other one with 6GB RAM and 128GB storage. Both of these devices support the HDR10 standard, which will make them a media consumption delight for millions of users. The storage on the Mate 10 can be further expanded up to 256GB, unlike on the Mate 10 Pro. The Mate 10, meanwhile, still has a home button, which also acts as the fingerprint scanner. In short, you will need a Type-C USB to HDMI adapter and connect it to an available monitor and presto, the entire Android experience will be projected onto that monitor.

The devices will go on sale from November in Australia, China, Egypt, Malaysia, Mexico, New Zealand, Philippines, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, Spain and UAE. Apparently, Huawei is not interested in building an AI assistant.

The Mate 10 Pro is also available in another variant with 6 GB RAM and 128 GB storage. As claimed by the company's CEO Richard Yu, the phones offer several functionalities that surpass the $1000 iPhone X and pretty much everything else on the market.

Not long ago, Huawei had overtaken Apple to become the world's second-largest smartphone maker.
