Huawei Y6 Pro 2017 Model Launched

The handsets are created to go head-to-head with the likes of the Samsung Galaxy S8 and Note 8, the iPhone 8 and Google Pixel 2.

Huawei's new look Emotion UI 8 is debuting on the Mate 10 Pro and Mate 10.

Last week we wrote a piece about what to expect at the Huawei event in Berlin tonight and have covered the Huawei Mate 10 leaks for as long as we have seen them.

The Huawei Mate 10 will be powered by the Kirin 970 64-bit octa-core SoC.

"Huawei says that its AI chipset is more advanced than others, but it'll be more about meaningful features and how well each company can integrate those into the phone - something that companies such as Huawei, Apple and Google have an advantage in, by making their own AI chips".

The phone uses it to recognise a range of objects through the camera, such as animals and food, and learn your usage habits. The device comes with a fingerprint sensor, which has been placed at the back of the device. In the front is the 5-megapixel camera for video calls and selfie-shooting.

The Mate 10 Pro will also support dual-Sim, for having two numbers on one device, and has quick charging technology that can charge the smartphone's 4,000mAh battery to 58% in 30 minutes.

Huawei is blaming the waterproofing tech for the removal of the headphone jack, but other companies are managing to retain the jack while adding water resistance, so it's likely the decision was instead driven by the desire to make a thinner phone. The Mate 10 has a highly distinctive rear, thanks to an unusual reflective band that has been created to attract attention to the camera. It works in a similar way to the home button on the Huawei P10, but we're not really certain if being able to move it around will prove that useful.

The Huawei Y6 Pro (2017) packs a 3020mAh non-removable battery, and the device is available in Black, Golden, and Silver color variants. The Huawei Y6 Pro been priced at 189 Euros. It will be available in Midnight Blue, Titanium Grey, Mocha Brown and Pink Gold colour options.

When it comes to storage, you'll have lots of space as there's either 64GB or 128GB available in the Huawei Mate 10 Pro.
