Ok, take it from a real iPhone nerd, I’ve had each and every one from the beginning, and although I intend to keep my phones, I’ve been convinced there are other alternatives. In collaboration with Leica, HUAWEI flew us to Frankfurt last week and this is what makes all the difference.

HUAWEI revealed their highly anticipated HUAWEI Mate 10 and HUAWEI Mate 10 Pro featuring the world’s first artificially intelligent chipset with dedicated Neural Network Processing Unit (NPU). With AI-based enhancements and machine learning integrated throughout, the device delivers the ultimate smartphone performance – something that made a photography nerd and an amateur photographer (yes, the two can be combined) awestruck.

The partnership between Huawei and renowned professional camera maker and optics expert Leica Camera grows even stronger with the HUAWEI Mate 10. Consisting of 20-megapixel mono and 12-megapixel RGB dual sensors, the New Leica Dual Camera results in more detailed and better quality images than ever before. Zero shutter lag, thanks to Huawei’s brand new Dual ISP on the Kirin 970 Chipset, Optical Image Stabilization (OIS), which keeps images and videos sharp and focused, and dual lenses with the world’s largest aperture of f/1.6 put the capability for professional photographs into the hands of the everyday user. If you ask us, that sounds all nice, but the important thing is that it takes pro pictures without any effort!
