KUALA LUMPUR: The Mate series phones are popular among photographers and photo enthusiasts for its ability to take dSLR-like quality photos.
Featuring Leica dual camera with Summilux-H lenses with an aperture of f/1.6 for both cameras, the Mate 10 Pro is said to be good for low-light photography.
Its photography engine comes with artificial intelligence (AI)-powered real time scene and object recognition and AI-powered bokeh effect.
The 6-inch Android phone features an 18:9 OLED display, high screen-to-body ratio and HDR10 for dynamic video viewing.
The phone features a 3D glass body, symmetrically curved on all four sides for an ergonomic hold. Its back features a reflective band design to highlight the New Leica Dual Camera.
The phone is also one of the first devices powered by the new Kirin 970 processor and can deliver AI enhancements for a faster, more customised mobile experience.
The Kirin 970 is built using an advanced TSMC 10nm semiconductor manufacturing process, and features an octa-core ARM Cortex CPU, a first-to-market Mali-G72 12-core GPU and the first NPU designed specifically for a mobile device. The Kirin 970 also has a new dual ISP for AI-powered intelligent photography.
