Smartphones’ biggest problem is Charging!! Nowadays with so many apps and so much to do with our smartphones, we run out of battery before the day is even half over. It was about time that someone solved this issue since smartphone innovators have been competing to resolve the matter for so long and we are tired of new phones released every day, yet nobody has been able to come up with a feasible solution to reduce the 0% to 100% charging time to 30 minutes or less.
Well, Huawei with its “Make it Possible” slogan has finally made it possible to fully recharge your smartphone within 20 minutes. Yes, 20 MINUTES! That’s it and you are good to go for the whole day.
Huawei Consumer Business Group unveiled Huawei Mate 9 and premium Mate 9 Porsche Design at a global launch event on Nov 3, 2016. Mate 9 is the latest version of Huawei flagship Mate series that runs on Android Nougat with Emotion UI and the fastest Kirin 960 Processor, specially designed by Huawei.
Richard Yu, CEO of Huawei BG said at the launch event. “While developing the Huawei Mate 9, we had to come up with an answer to a simple question- how can we improve the smartphone experience? We are fully aware that today’s corporate culture demands not only a fast and functional phone but a spectacular design and intuitive features are just as important, so we created these two devices at the forefront of hardware and software innovation.”
The most distinctive features this device boasts are its “Supercharge technology”, a “Machine learning algorithm” and a 20MP dual-lens “Leica camera”.
The company claims that “Supercharge technology” powers the device for the whole day in just 20 minutes.Battery capacity is set at 4,000 mAh, which supports Supercharge. A full charge provides up to
- 20 hours of video playback
- 105 hours of music playback
- 30 hours of 3G
- 20 hours of 4G browsing
The company guaranteed battery’s safety and while explaining the graph comparing the heating up of Mate 9 with Samsung phones, CEO jabbed, “no explosions!”, at which the whole crowd burst into laughter at the launch ceremony.
Another extraordinary feature in this phone is it’s “Machine Learning” which is behavioral learning component and allocates the phone’s resources according to the user’s habits.
The Mate 9 offers a “2nd Generation 20MP Leica Dual Camera” with optical image stabilization, Hybrid Zoom, and an artistic Bokeh option. The front camera is 8 MP with Autofocus and videos can be recorded at 4K with file size compression possible up to 50%.
The back of the Mate 9 also has a fingerprint scanner with gesture control, while a four-mic system enables active noise cancellation.
The Mate 9, will be offered in six colors at an extravagant price of 699 Euros (Rs.81,000).
Huawei has steadily come at par with the two smartphone industry giants, since Mate 9 can easily be compared to Samsung with it’s gigantic 5.9 inch screen mimicking Note 7 (minus the explosions though) and the user-friendliness and high-end camera features of iPhone 7, mixed with its own innovations like the most powerful Kirin 960 Processor.
The similarities to these two phones aren’t just a coincidence but a strategy employed by Huawei directed to make it the top smartphone manufacturer in the world, within the next 3 to 5 years.
