The 'Porsche' of smartphone design is here
"AED5,000 on a smartphone? I could buy a car with that." Well, sorta...
With Apple and Samsung controlling the majority of the global smartphone market, it’s sometimes easy to forget other brands even exist, let alone take a second look at their offering. But anyone dithering over dropping AED5,000 on the iPhone X might want to do just that.
Apple’s 10th anniversary product is stunning, but so are three high-end smartphones just unveiled by Huawei, the Chinese company giving the Californians a run for their (not inconsiderable) money: the Huawei Mate 10, Huawei Mate 10 Pro and Porsche Design Huawei Mate 10.
All have Android Oreo, are powered by a chip dubbed the “AI processor” (designed for “AI-related tasks”) and feature dual-camera set-ups by Leica.
As you’d expect, the flagship Porsche Design model is the daddy, packing 3D curved glass and an almost-borderless display into an exclusive diamond finish. It’s arguably the smartest smartphone on the market, and certainly a beautifully designed object in its own right.
