Huawei Mate 10, Mate 10 Pro and Mate10 Porsche features, release date, specs, price and difference. They're everything we know so far.

Following the event that was held earlier this month in Germany, Huawei announced 3 consecutive smartphones that promises to offer the ultimate performance. The flagship includes a regular Mate 10, Mate 10 Pro and the premium Mate 10 Porsche. Apart from this three, there's also a Mate 10 lite in the family. But we are not going to throw more light into it for now. The three flagships just like its predecessors offers plethora features but even at that, they don't seem to compare in terms of price and specifications. Huawei Mate 10 Porshe design is same as the Mate 10 Pro, except that it adds glossy finish with its diamond black glass and Porshe accent. To be straightforward, below is a table that unveils the "key" difference between Huawei Mate 10, Mate 10 Pro and Mate 10 Porshe.

Winner: Huawei Mate 10 Porsche tops first, (thanks to its 256 Gb inbuilt memory). The Mate 10 Pro tops second while the regular Mate 10 follows behind. The Mate 10 features a 3.5mm headphone jack, but this is absent in Mate 10 Pro and Porshe. Although the latter supports IPS water and dust resistant while the mate 10 doesn't. Let's quickly checkout the Mate 10 Pro features, release date and price.


Coming to the Mate 10 Pro, the device offers a fullview 6-inch screen with an 18:9 display ratio and the bezels has been trimmed to attain an immersive view thanks to the HDR 10 technology. At the back, Huawei Mate 10 Pro is covered with an ergonomic curved glass with dual lens cameras and an IP67  water and dust resistant. The robust and strong glass casing spotted on Huawei Mate 10 (both front and back) portarys a device with elegant design.


Huawei Mate 10 Pro is plastered on Kirin 970 AI processor with a dedicated NPU (Neural- Network Processing Unit). This is the first of its kind, and we are meant to believe that this new technology makes the Mate 10 Pro experience more faster, seamless and efficient. The flagship also packs the cutting-edge of 10 nm tech with 8-core CPU and 12-core GPU coupled with 6GB RAM, 64GB mass storage and can be expanded with up to 256GB MicroSD card. The front camera is rated at 8 MP while the back camera is 20 MP with 4000 mAh battery.

Coming to user interface, Huawei Mate 10 Pro offers an all new EMUI 8.0 that's intuitive and its gaming performance is top-notch. Similar to Galaxy S8, Huawei Mate 10 Pro brings support for split screen, allowing you to run two apps side by side on the phone’s screen. Aside from this, Huawei Mate 10 Pro features a "navigation dock" that lets you place your home button and dock where you want it to be on the home screen. Huawei Mate 10 Pro runs on Android 8.0 Oreo and it brings a pad-like multi-column viewing geared for unique desktop experience.

Price and Release Date

Huawei Mate 10 Pro will reportedly costs €799 (about £710) when it hits the market in mid November. For the premium Porshe of Huawei Mate 10, the price tag will go for a whopping €1,395 (which is about £1,240) and it will hit the smartphone market next month. The three flagship seems fine to me, except that it doesn't include the acclaimed rounded display corners spotted on iPhone X and Galaxy S8. Overall Huawei Mate 10 is quite a premium device that boosts of speed and it's worth buying.
