As I said, Huawei’s taking a big step into the United States withthe release of this right here. This is the new Huawei Mate10 Pro United States version, and in this episode, I want to give you the top five features ofHuawei’s flagship smartphone. Huawei made the announcement at CES that the Mate 10 was coming to the US. Big shout out by the way to Huawei for sending over the Mate 10and for sponsoring this video. Now the Mate 10 Pro is a beautiful device. So let’s start off rightthere by talking about the design. The Huawei Mate 10 Pro iscomprised of glass on the front and the back. On the rear, you’ve gotergonomic curved glass according to the company,and as you can see, it’s got two cameras on the back, that’s dual cameras, from Leica, and that stripe thatgoes across the cameras right above the fingerprintsensor is part of Huawei’s new signature design. I assume you’re gonna seethat on future smartphones going forward as well.
Between the two pieces of glass, you’ve got a metal bandholding everything together, and on the bottom, as you can see, it’s got a speaker as well as a USB-C port for charging and syncing. I did mention that it has afingerprint reader on the back which is actually very fast. That’s not surprising inthis day and age though. Pretty much every fingerprintsensor that we come across is super fast these days. And looking up front, as you can see, that screen-to-body ratio is killer. There’s just a small bezelon the top and bottom. Otherwise, you’ve gotthat nice large display. The other thing to keep in mind about the design of this phone is that Huawei did make this phoneIP67 water and dust resistant.
That means you can dropit in a liter of water and leave it there for up to 30 minutes without suffering any damage. So again, beautiful-lookingdevice, but of course, the main thing about the device that you’re gonna belooking at isn’t the back. It’s the front. That is feature number two,Huawei’s full-view display. Up front, you’ve got a six-inch18 by 9 aspect ratio display at a resolution of 2160 by 1080. Huawei calls this the full-view display. It’s an OLED display,again with minimal bezels. It’s also an HDR-capable display with support for HDR10 contentfrom places like Netflix, Amazon, YouTube, and more. It supports 16.7 million colors and has a contrast ratio of 70,000 to one. The display is also veryresponsive to touch. It’s not 120 hertz true-motiondisplay or anything like that but it does get the jobdone and looks fantastic, especially when you’restreaming HDR content. Up next, let’s talk about oneof the most important features out there, something mostpeople don’t think about until after they buy the device.
It is battery life, andHuawei is killing it on the battery front. On the inside, Huawei’sMate 10 Pro packs in a 4,000 milliamp hour battery. That is one of the largestbatteries you’re going to find in any smartphone today. A lot of them are a lot less. Huawei is bringing the heat with a 4,000 milliamp hour battery. In fact, I’ve been ableto use that battery from morning until night andgo to bed with power left over without having to chargeup one time during the day.
So super impressed withHuawei’s battery life, but there’s also Huawei’sbattery charging tech that also deserves tobe called out as well. Huawei calls it Super Charge. It’s the fast-charging techthat gives you a full day’s use from a 20-minute charge. So if you have an empty batteryof if you have a low battery you plug in for 20 minuteswith Huawei’s charger and you’ll have a full day’s battery life. Very impressive and a featurethat is very much appreciated. Up next on my list of the top features for the Huawei Mate 10 Prois this impressive camera on the back.
I mentioned that stripe design. The Leica cameras areflanked right in there, and they do a really good job. Inside the Huawei Mate 10 Pro is the Kirin 970 optical processor with a neural network processing unit. That is what powers thecamera and gives it its AI, artificial intelligence capabilities. The Leica dual camerasare both f/1.6 apertures, which is the largestaperture you’re gonna find on any dual-camera smartphone. You’ve got one 20-megapixelmonochrome camera and one 12-megapixel RGB camera with optical image stabilization built in. Together, they take some great photos, and the real-time recognition for what you’re taking photos of built in. Using that neural network processing, it’ll sense what you’repointing the camera at and optimize all of the settings for that particular scene. Some examples of things thatMate 10 Pro can recognize are flowers, the sky,plants, nightscapes, food, sunrise and sunset, text,beaches, portraits, snow, and more. So if you point at any ofthose things, and again, there’s more than that,it’ll recognize exactly what you’re trying to take a picture of and then optimize all thedifferent settings of the camera so that when you snap the photo, it takes the perfect picture.
The Mate 10 Pro does alsohave a portrait mode built in. That’s where you take a photo of someone and have the background all blurred that. It does that using AI as well. And that’s something we’re seeing on a lot of flagship smartphones recently, at least with the iPhone X,iPhone 8, the Google Pixel 2, and the Samsung Galaxy Note8.
Huawei is doing the same thinghere using that dual camera to produce DSLR-like quality. Now this next feature is interesting because it’s not so much afeature as it is a category, but Huawei’s done a really good job of optimizing for thiscategory, and that is travel. If you’re a business traveler, there are some featuresbuilt in to the Mate 10 Pro that you really don’t see elsewhere, but they deserve a mention. First is a built-in real-time translator. You can speak to the Mate 10 Pro in one of 50 supportedlanguages and it’ll translate into another of those50 supported languages.
You can go back and forth with someone using just this phone andhave a full conversation. Not only does it support one-way voice, but like I said, itsupports conversations. It support images. It even supports text. So you can take the camerahere, point it at something in another of the 50languages that are supported, and it will translate what’s in that text that you’re pointing the camera at into your native language. The translator ispreinstalled on the device so you’re ready to goright out of the box.
For business travel oreven for personal travel, that is a great feature to have built right into the phone. That was your look at my top five features of the Huawei Mate 10 Pro. The company did also havesome other non-smartphone news to share at CES this year. They’re launching the world’sfirst hybrid smart home network solution, which aimsto support the long list of WiFi connected home products. This is called the Huawei WiFi Q2 series, which will automatically connect to the fastest hotspotand frequency nearby to deliver a reliable signalthroughout your house.
