In­tel­li­gent up­grade

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - Technology - By SHARMILA NAIR bytz@thes­tar.com.my

VERY lit­tle is known about Huawei’s much-an­tic­i­pated Mate 10 smart­phone and Huawei con­sumer busi­ness group hand­set busi­ness vice pres­i­dent Bruce Lee hopes it stays that way un­til the of­fi­cial re­lease at the end of this year.

How­ever, Lee did share some news about the up­com­ing model – first, the Mate 10 will have an in­te­grated AI which re­port­edly would make the smart­phone faster and more in­tel­li­gent.

“We think that the in­te­gra­tion of AI in the Cloud is not enough. We want to in­te­grate the AI in the de­vice it­self. This will give the de­vice learn­ing ca­pa­bil­i­ties,” he said. The AI would also re­port­edly un­der­stand im­ages, on top of the usual text and voice com­mands.

The Mate 9 al­ready uses Ma­chine Learn­ing Al­go­rithm to learn the user’s habits over time to op­ti­mise per­for­mance and mem­ory. Lee said that the in­te­grated AI would do all that and more but de­clined to share if its other phones would also ben­e­fit from it in the fu­ture.

Huawei will also con­tinue to in­no­vate its EMUI (Emo­tion User In­ter­face) and a new ver­sion will be in­tro­duced in the up­com­ing smart­phone.

Lee also said the Mate 10 will run on the im­proved in-house Kirin 970 pro­ces­sor.

When asked about the ru­mours that Mate 10 will fea­ture a 6in dis­play with an 18:9 ra­tio named En­tireView Dis­play, Lee brushed it aside, claim­ing he had never heard of it be­fore. He said that Mate 10 “would have a big screen, yet be com­pact”.

The bat­tery would also see an im­prove­ment in Mate 10 as Lee said that the com­pany is work­ing on ways to make it last longer than its pre­de­ces­sor’s.

Huawei will also con­tinue its col­lab­o­ra­tion with Le­ica with the Mate 10, and Lee said that it will give a bet­ter pho­tog­ra­phy ex­pe­ri­ence thanks to im­prove­ments on the lens, im­age qual­ity and im­age pro­cess­ing al­go­rithm.
