In an interview with Bloomberg Technolgy, Huawei’s Consumer Business Group CEO Richard Yu dropped hints on the upcoming Mate 10. Not only that but he also said that the company is moving away from the very low-end handset range. Yu promises that the Mate 10 will have a more screen space for its body. This most likely pertains to the bezel less trend we have seen over the last few flagship releases.
“The Mate 10, which has much longer battery life with a full-screen display, quicker changing speed, better photographing capability and many other features that will help us compete with Apple.”
As for the photographing capability, Huawei’s partnership with Leica proves its commitment to camera prowess. They even moved to a dual lens set-up for the high end range as a competitive strategy. However, on the other side of the matter, it looks like the company will move away from low-end devices.
“We are giving up the very low-end devices because the margin in this is extremely low, and it’s not making enough profit for us,”
With this, they also intend to get a better grip of markets in Europe, Japan, and China. These places are seen as thriving markets where people are able to purchase their products. The Mate 9 was debuted last year early in November. Given that, the Mate 10 is likely to be revealed somewhere during last quarter of this year.
