Huawei teases 4,000mAh battery for the Mate 10

Peter, 05 October 2017

Huawei has been doling out teasers for the Mate 10 on its Twitter account, but it’s mostly vague, aspirational stuff. There’s nothing vague about this – the new flagship will have a 4,000mAh battery.

Let’s list its main competitors, shall we? Galaxy Note8 – nope, 3,300mAh. iPhone X – double nope, 2,716mAh. LG V30 – 3,300mAh again. Pixel 2 XL – a bit better, 3,520mAh. Xperia XZ Premium – 3,230mAh. Mi Mix 2 – 3,400mAh.

We can keep going, but the simple truth is this – very few flagships, even the big ones, go above 3,500mAh batteries. So the new Mate 10 with its large battery and a 10nm chipset should have stellar battery life.

By the way, Huawei filed for a trademark of U. There’s speculation that this is its new digital assistant as the trademark application reads: “Software and mobile applications for managing smart home devices”.

The logo is two interlocked Us although we hope the assistant has another name – like Amazon’s Alexa and Echo. “Hey, U” is going to be an awkward way to address the assistant.

thats cuz of its smaller screen. yes software does take part in it. But sony with the XZ1 which also has the same exact battery size as the compact version didn't do as good. If the xz1 had a 3000mah or higher it would be better

indeed, my bad, it's the 787. It still had massive battery issues though, due to trying to do things the wrong way.
