Richard Yu, CEO of Huawei Technologies Consumer Business Group has finally confirmed that the successor of Mate 9 will indeed be called Mate 10 which will debut right around the time Apple will unveil its flagship device.

Mate 9 is best known for being a powerhouse featuring Hisilicon Kirin 960 chipset but the new phablet is expected to top this reputation. In an interview, Richard Yu described that with Mate 10, Huawei will have a much powerful product.

He further said; “The Mate 10, which has much longer battery life with a full-screen display, quicker changing speed, better-photographing capability and many other features that will help us compete with Apple.”

It is no hidden secret that Huawei wants to challenge Samsung and Huawei with its flagship smartphones. Apple is already rumored to be in hot waters due to supply issues with the OLED screen that some speculate will cause a delay in the launch of iPhone 8.
