With a month left for the launch of its Mate 10 device, we’ve come to know that the flagship device will be powered by the latest Kirin 970 SoC with an advanced Neural Processing unit that was unveiled to the world during the IFA 2017 event in Berlin.
Having just surpassed Apple to capture the second spot in the global smartphone market, Huawei is now gearing up to keeping hold strong as it prepares for the launch of its next big flagship. Though we did get a leaked image of what the front panel might look like, a recent video now gives us an early look into the Mate 10’s lock screen which seems to have been intended for showcasing the new ‘Smart Color Selection’ feature for texts on a screen.
The feature as shown in the video indicates that the new EMUI interface will be able to pick and highlight colors from the lock screen and apply them to information that’ll be visible on the screen at the time. But there’s more. From what we can grasp from the recent information is that the next gen Huawei flagship might ship with a tall display panel with 2:1 aspect ratio or 18:9 depending on how the company plans to brand the screen. If made a reality, the 1080 x 2160 scaled resolution will stand among the ranks of this year flagships like the LG G6 and the Galaxy S8 while the more expensive Mate 10 device will feature an improved 1440 x 2880 Quad HD+ panel.
