In the European market debuted a compact smartphone Huawei Y6 Pro

The Huawei Y6 Pro been priced at 189 Euros. Unlike Google, Apple and Samsung, Huawei hasn't made one small phone and one big phone.

But with the OLED screen, the Mate Pro is telling the iPhone and others things are getting serious. Huawei has ditched aluminium in favour of a curved glass panel on the rear of both phones, which looks lovely, but is purely aesthetic.

Aside from sporting the larger display of the two, the Mate 10 PRO is IP67 certified for water and dust resistance, which is something the Mate 10 lacks.

The Mate 10 has a front-positioned fingerprint sensor and home button, like the Mate 9 Porsche Design model offered. This effect is slightly more pronounced on the Mate 10 Pro, where the screen stretches nearly to the very top and bottom of the front panel.

The Mate 10 models include a dual camera setup with a 20-megapixel monochrome lens and 12-megapixel RGB lens with a f/1.6 aperture on both lenses and optical image stabilization on the RGB lens.

Exactly how this will impact your use of the phone on a daily basis is a little unclear at the moment, but it's something we'll be sure to push in our Mate 10 Pro review, which is coming soon. Both come with either 64 or 128GB storage.

The Mate 10 will be available in four colours - Mocha Brown, Champagne Gold and Pink Gold - while the Mate 10 Pro is available in: Midnight Blue, Mocha Brown, Titanium Gray and Pink Gold. Huawei's first attempt was on the Mate 9, which Huawei says uses algorithms to help the phone maintain its performance and battery efficiency over time.

The regular Mate 10 will also have a 5.9-inch display with 18:9 ratio and 2560 x 1440 (2K) resolution.

Both the Mate 10 and the Mate 10 Pro have flat screens, minimal bezels even though the Mate 10 has slightly larger at the top and bottom to account for the button, and both devices offer HDR10 compatibility for high dynamic range content sourced from the likes of Netflix. Brightness levels are seriously impressive too, with 730 Nits beamed at your retinas at maximum levels. It's worth noting that the phone's cameras come with Leica's optics, and even though these images were cropped before posting, they still look really good.

Huawei's video showed a clown's face on a phone screen, with its eyes, nose and mouth being recognised by the camera. Assuming the new phone ships within the next month, that should mean unlocked Mate 9s will be upgraded to Oreo before the end of the year.

Huawei has today official unraveled a pair of flagship smartphones under its Mate series with the launch of the Mate 10 and Mate 10 Pro in Munich, Germany.

Huawei is using the neural processor to run on-device artificial intelligence for advanced scene detection, live translation through the camera and computational photography techniques combining images from the two image sensors for portrait mode and other camera tricks. The internal storage is expected to be 64GB which will be further expandable by a Micro SD card. The Mate 10 and its Pro variant both have that Kirin 970 processor inside, as well as massive 4000mAh batteries and Supercharge fast charging to top them up quickly.

The Mate 10 has followed the iPhone, HTC U11 and Pixel 2 by ditching the headphone port which Huawei claims has given then more room for the bigger battery.

The Mate 10 comes with a 3.5mm headphone jack, like the Mate 9 did, while the Mate 10 Pro ditches the headphone jack. They have software that edges ever closer to the stock Android experience (Huawei has even brought Emotion UI, the name of its operating system, up to number parity with Android for clarity - the Mate 10 comes with EMUI 8.0), while adding machine learning capablities to speed up everyday tasks. Earlier reports have indicated that the company will be announcing its newest flagship handset, the Mate 10 along with three other smartphones that include the Mate 10 Pro, Mate 10 Lite, and the Mate Porsche. The Mate 10 can automatically enhance the mic's input irrespective of how softly and quietly you speak.
