Huawei Sees Annual Smartphone Shipments Slowing With Focus on Profits Over Volumes


"We will have an even more powerful product". As of now, only major smartphone vendors such as LG and Samsung have launched thin bezel display smartphones. Speaking to Bloomberg, Huawei's chief of consumer division Richard Yu stated that he believes that the company's upcoming Mate 10 will have what it takes to beat the iPhone 8 in terms of design, battery life, and camera features. The main brand also improved its global standing to become better recognized as a premium phone maker, and this was confirmed by its high placing in several important lists, such as the Forbes World's Most Valuable Brands list, on which Huawei featured at number 88 this year. The Chinese tech giant's upcoming flagship - now confirmed to be branded as the Mate 10 - is reportedly going to pack features that are better than the iPhone 8. The Huawei Mate 9 is the successor of Huawei Mate 8 which was launched a year ago.

Huawei is now third best in the world when it comes to smartphones. With Mate 10, Huawei is planning on taking over Apple in North America. It is expected that the smartphone will sport a 6-inch display on the front.

We expect the Huawei Mate 10 to launch before the end of the year, and now the firm's CEO has given us some insight into what we can expect from its next phablet flagship.

This nearly confirms the recent rumours about the upcoming handset's edge-to-edge and borderline bezel-less look, which has been this year's most popular external feature when it comes to high-end smartphones.

Other than that, the smartphone is expected to be powered by the Kirin 970 processor and it will probably run on Android 7.1.1 Nougat right out of the box. Other than that, we don't have a lot of info about the smartphone. Let us know your thoughts on this by leaving a comment down below.
