In Short

The Huawei Mate 10 and Mate 10 Pro (and its expensive Porsche Design counterpart) were unveiled at an event in Munich, Germany on October 16, 2017. They're the 2017 follow-ups to the successful Mate 9 and Mate 9 Pro, and feature a number of improvements, both visually and internally.

Both phones are now covered in glass all around and feature large 5.9- and 6-inch displays, respectively. The Mate 10 features a traditional 16:9 aspect ratio while the Mate 10 Pro follows the trend set by Samsung and LG earlier this year by moving to an 18:9, or 2:1, aspect ratio.

They're powered by Huawei's powerful Kirin 970 SoC, along with either 4GB or 6GB of RAM, 64GB or 128GB of storage, plus microSD expansion. And, a first in any phone, both devices feature a Neural Processing Unit, allowing AI-powered software to interact directly with a piece of silicon dedicated to the task.

On the camera side, Huawei has retained its dual camera setup featuring a 12MP main RGB sensor with OIS and a secondary 20MP monochrome sensor for improved low-light capabilities.

Elsewhere, 4000mAh batteries help the phones stay online longer, and they run Android 8.0 Oreo out of the box with an updated version of Huawei's software skin, EMUI 8.

While both phones will be available in some countries around the world, only the Mate 10 Pro will come to the U.S. and the UK — at least at first. North American pricing has yet to be revealed, but Huawei says they will cost €699 and €799 respectively.
