March 16 2018, London - Huawei today announced that the Mate 10 Pro won Best Smartphone at the Mobile News Awards, one of the most prestigious awards for the mobile industry. Awarded to the manufacturers who go above and beyond industry expectations, the win bolsters Huawei’s ongoing innovation and leadership in the premium smartphone category.
The Mate 10 Pro is the world’s first AI-powered smartphone, which is enabled by Huawei’s Kirin 970 chipset. By learning over time, its AI capabilities intelligently anticipate how the device will be used and when. Whether it’s pre-loading your favourite apps for the right time, or intelligently adjusting your camera settings to take the perfect photo on the Leica Dual Camera, the Mate 10 Pro offers a seamless mobile experience that enables users to devote more time to the things that matter.
On-device AI also underpins the performance of the Mate 10 Pro; intelligent resourcing of processing power provides 25x better performance and 50x greater energy efficiency, while the 4,000mAh battery offers superior battery life. It’s thanks to these AI-enabled capabilities and industry leading features that the Mate 10 Pro exceeded expectations for its market segment and took the top spot at the Mobile News Awards. The device has been incredibly well received across the globe – with media, influencers and consumers positioning it as a key contender in the flagship space, delivering best in class smartphone capabilities at an accessible price point.

That’s why we introduced the Mate 10 Pro – a phone that doesn’t follow, it leads, and disrupts the status quo by enabling people to do and achieve more.
