The daily Wetzlar newspapaer, [m]ittelhessen, reports about the new “Mate 10” smartphone with a dual lens Leica camera.  It is made of high-quality metal and glass, water and dust resistant and features a 6 inch Amoled display. Two Leica cameras on the back are equipped with extensive software, which should allow recordings as by a professional photographer.

Huawei wants to prove themselves as an innovation leader with this new flagship product.  They hope to advance to the second place in the international bestseller lists.
The high-tech device will be launched in Germany in late November. The heart of the unit, a new "Kirin 970" chipset, is designed to give the smartphone artificial intelligence. It is the first system worldwide with a computing unit for neural networks. This smartphone will work in many respects similar to a human brain.  With the “Kirin 970” it will be possible to translate languages in real time and to analyze image contents without increasing the use of battery power.

Huawei states:

"With the new Leica Dual Lens with f/1.6 aperture, you can easily take beautiful shallow depth of field pictures, crystal clear low-light photographs and blur-free shots of objects on the move. The 20MP monochrome sensor and 12MP RGB sensor with Optical Image Stabilization captures more light to perform at an expert standard.

With intelligent photographic algorithms, the HUAWEI Mate 10 Pro identifies, in real-time, different types of scene and object, automatically adjusting color, contrast, brightness, exposure and more to produce vibrant, sharp, perfectly framed photographs.

Powered by AI to ‘learn’ from our data cache of portrait images, the HUAWEI Mate 10 Pro can seamlessly evoke a professional bokeh effect by shifting the focal point onto the subject of the photograph, for picture-perfect portraits and selfies."

Huawei will also offer a version of the "Mate 10" designed by Porsche.

The cosrt of the phone is estimated to be 800 euros with the Porsche version being noticeably more expensive.
