|Huawei Mate 10 Lite smartphone was launched in September 2017 and it came with a 5.90-inch touch screen display along with a lot of other exceptional features.
The phone has ruled the market since its launch and at the year end, one can easily say that it was the smartphone of the year.
And here are the reasons.
1. Stunning HUAWEI Full View Display Technology
Designed for Premium Viewing: HUAWEI Mate 10 lite is the first HUAWEI smartphone to feature a HUAWEI FullView display, fitting 5.9 inches of screen into what would traditionally be a 5.5 inch form factor. This means HUAWEI Mate 10 lite sports an impressive 83% screen-to-body ratio.
To ensure a sharp and clear image on the HUAWEI Mate 10 lite’s bigger screen, the device features FHD+ resolution with a high pixel per inch (PPI) density. Combined, the high density screen and 18:9 aspect ratio make for exceptional widescreen viewing.
A Next-Generation Viewing Experience: With a form factor designed to sit comfortably in one hand, the HUAWEI Mate 10 lite delivers a comfortable split-screen experience for users who need to effectively multitask, with significant screen real estate for two side-by-side apps. And when not multitasking, the 5.9 inch HUAWEI FullView display delivers a premium reading, viewing, browsing and playing experience.
2. A HUAWEI First: Front and Back Dual Lens Cameras
Dual-lens Camera and Smart Selfie Toning Flash for Better Selfies: With HUAWEI Mate 10 lite, users enjoy a unique front-facing dua-lens camera with one 13MP lens and a 2MP lens.
The f/2.0 13MP lens is dedicated to image rendering while the 1.75um 2MP color lens captures depth of field information. When combined the two lenses accentuate gorgeous details and result in a professional-grade bokeh effect.
Smart Selfie Toning Flash Delivers Better Selfies in Low-Light Conditions: HUAWEI Mate 10 lite packs a studio-level high CRI (color rendering index)/smart selfie toning flash which produces flattering soft light in low-light or even pitch black conditions.
The Right Lighting for Every Picture： The new smart selfie toning flash allows HUAWEI Mate 10 lite to intelligently and automatically adjust the level of brightness to deliver professional-level lighting in almost any setting.
Authentic Color Rendering： Natural light is vital to capturing great images. HUAWEI Mate 10 lite’s smart selfie toning flash has a stunning CRI of 80% (100% being indicative of natural sunlight) making it the best in the industry. The cameras on HUAWEI Mate 10 lite have been vigorously tested to ensure colors are rendered more accurately and images are captured as if they are taken in natural sunlight. Skin-tones are more accurate and images are more vibrant, creating more appealing photos.
Soft, Even Lighting：Smartphone flashes, particularly on front-facing cameras, often provide uneven and harsh lighting. The HUAWEI Mate 10 lite features a ‘Translucent Light Lampshade’ that gives a consistent and uniform fading of light from the center out to the edges of the image. ‘Smooth Ink’ is also applied to filter 80 percent of the total light, offering both the brightness to illuminate the subject and a softness to create a stunning image.
120-Degree Lighting Angle：A 120 degree lighting angle on the smart selfie toning flash delivers a more natural lighting profile that highlights areas beyond the face, leading to a more natural image with less harsh lighting.
Butterfly Lighting Portrait：The smart selfie toning flash simulates the classic ‘Butterfly Lighting’ technique used for portrait photography in professional studios. When taking a selfie with its front-facing dual-lens camera, HUAWEI Mate 10 lite replicates this lighting angle adding a sense of depth to the subject’s face and creating striking, near studio-quality portraits.
Fun, attractive selfies: HUAWEI Mate 10 lite is powered by the latest version of HUAWEI Beauty 4.0, supporting makeup filter templates and gesture-activated selfies.
Dual-lens Camera for a Professional Bokeh Effect (Back Camera)
HUAWEI Mate 10 lite’s rear-facing camera combines a 16MP lens and a 2MP lens. The 16MP lens is responsible for image rendering, and the 2MP lens captures depth of field information to create a professional bokeh effect.
• Portrait Bokeh: The dual-lens bokeh effect creates more natural-looking images with clean and crisp edges that deliver eye-catching portraits.
• Large Aperture Bokeh：HUAWEI Mate 10 lite’s dual-lens camera supports a large aperture bokeh effect with manually adjustable bokeh levels.
• Shoot First, Focus Later: Images can be readjusted in post-production change the image focus after it has been captured. Different bokeh effects can be applied, offering more options to get the perfect shot.
• Moving Picture: HUAWEI Mate 10 lite features a live-picture option, which produces two-second micro-videos of images, turning static snapshots into moving pictures.
3. Symmetry and Harmony
Engineered using high-quality industrial materials, the HUAWEI Mate 10 lite features a symmetrical design and a stunning HUAWEI FullView display – one of the first devices in the world to feature this premium screen experience.
The Beauty of Symmetry
The breathtaking 5.9-inch HUAWEI FullView display transitions smoothly into soft, curved edges to create a single, seamless unibody device. On the back of the HUAWEI Mate 10 lite, the flashlight, fingerprint sensor, USB socket and dual-lens camera all lie on the central axis of the phone. On the front, the dual-lens camera sits on the right, a reflection of the camera flash and distance sensor on the left. Achieving this level of near-perfect symmetry is a remarkable and purposeful design achievement.
A Sense of Harmony
When designing HUAWEI Mate 10 lite, an emphasis was placed on soft lines, smooth edges and engaging colors that invoke a sense of unity and harmony. Curved edges and flowing soft lines are evident throughout the device, from the FullView display, to the smooth body of the phone to the circular power button, fingerprint sensor and cameras. HUAWEI Mate 10 lite is available in graphite black, prestige gold and aurora blue.
4. User Experience and Exceptional Performance
Kirin and EMUI – A Perfect Balance of Software and Hardware: HUAWEI Mate 10 lite’s 16nm, 8-core Kirin 659 chipset clocks speeds up to 2.36 GHz. Meanwhile, 4GB of RAM and 64GB of ROM internal storage can comfortably running multiple tasks efficiently. HUAWEI’s Android 7-based EMUI 5.1 intelligently optimizes the stock Android experience from the ground up and HUAWEI’s proprietary machine learning technology allows HUAWEI Mate 10 lite to learn and predict user behavior.
Superior Power Efficiency：HUAWEI’s proprietary Kirin 659 chipset and EMUI 5.1 deliver outstanding power efficiency. HUAWEI Mate 10 lite’s 3340 mAh battery can easily last up to two days of ordinary use.
Histen Audio Algorithm: HUAWEI Mate 10 lite features the proprietary HUAWEI Histen audio system from its 2012 Lab, which uses a combination of six algorithms to ensure music and movies sound extraordinary. HUAWEI Mate 10 lite also supports Bluetooth aptX for better audio quality and better synchronization between audio and video.
