The huawei Mate 10 will launch late this year. Despite launching late, it claims to be more powerful than the upcoming iPhone 8.

In an interview with Bloomberg, Huawei Consumer Business Group CEO Richard Yu released some information regarding their upcoming flagship smartphone. He confidently stated that the Huawei Mate 10 would surely be better than the 10th year anniversary iPhone.

Which is better?

When Yu mentioned the iPhone, some of the people in the crowd were wondering if he meant the upcoming iPhone 8. With all the rumors about the greatest iPhone yet, it’s hard to imagine that Huawei could beat it. It is like the Chinese tech company has a very reliable source as to what the iPhone will be like.

To say their confidence that the new smartphone will be more powerful than the most revolutionary smartphone yet is quite a serious statement.

According to Yu, the smartphone will feature a more powerful processor. He also added that it would have a bigger battery. Although some of his words might be giving a bit of a mixed interpretation, he stated that theirs is an even more powerful product.

Leica camera

The exciting part about his statement is the part that he mentioned the “photographing capability.” In the past, Huawei has made great strides when it comes to its camera. With their partnership with the German optics company Leica, they have incorporated high-quality imaging hardware and software that could compete with Apple and Samsung. There are even claims that Huawei’s is even better than those of its giant rivals.
