Huawei continued to ratchet up its hype machine on Thursday by revealing on Twitter that its upcoming Mate 10 smartphone will feature a 4,000mAh battery.

The Chinese company divulged the key detail via social media, which it has previously used to troll Apple as well as promote the built-in artificial intelligence capabilities of its forthcoming flagship device. The tweet was accompanied by the phrase, "#ThatFeeling when your battery lasts all day on a single charge".

With Samsung, Apple, and Google all having played their cards in the 2017 smartphone wars, Huawei is hoping to make a big splash to round off the year with its Mate 10 and Mate 10 Pro, set to be officially announced on October 16.

All indications point to both Mate 10 devices sporting a 4,000mAh battery, which would make their cell capacities larger than those of nearly all flagship smartphones to date, including the iPhone 8 Plus (2,675mAh), Galaxy S8+ (3,500mAh), Galaxy Note 8 (3,300mAh), and the Pixel 2 XL (3,550mAh).

However, it's not clear just how much extra juice beyond a day that would get Mate 10 users, given that the handset is likely to boast an energy-sapping 6.1-inch 1440 x 2880 Quad-HD AMOLED display with virtually no bezels. Having said that, the new Kirin 970 processor in the Mate 10 is supposed to be far more energy efficient, which could balance out battery performance.

As previously reported, this will be the first phone in the company's line-up to feature the Kirin 970 mobile chipset, which is based on the same 10-nanometer technology as Apple's A11 Bionic processor found in the iPhone 8 and iPhone X. It also has a built-in neural processing unit that utilizes of machine learning, making it a lot faster than a traditional processor, according to the company.

The Mate 10 Pro is thought to cost upwards of $900, with the Mate 10 price starting at $849. Both devices will likely feature Leica rear dual-lens cameras, with 64GB of internal storage and 6GB of RAM as standard. The Mate 10 series to be revealed this month is actually expected to include three smartphones, with a lower-spec device bearing the moniker Huawei Mate 10 Lite.

Since when every single phone company on the Earth can think that they can charge people upwards of $1000 for a phone? This is like Honda asking $50-60k for Accord.

Well... You must not using your iPhkne has hard as I used to. My iPhone will die before pass noon time. I have charger in my office, my car and portable battery in my bag just in case.

My Huawei P10 however, great battery life. Plus, fast charger is included in the box.

1. You can look at an iPhone and tell it’s an iPhone. Were the aesthetics the best? Not to everyone, but it was distinguishable. You didn’t look at an iPhone and call it a Galaxy. I look at an android phone and call it an android phone because I have no idea if it is a Samsung, LG, etc.

2. If your iPhone was dying before noon you truly need to rearrange some priorities in life. There is life outside of a screen. Assuming you were awake every morning at 5 to get around for work; and then spent the rest of your day hiding in your office gaming. Then I can see it dying by noon.

I am on my phone all the time as well. From 8AM - 8PM I am making work calls, checking my CRM, prospecting LinkedIn, checking my accounts social accounts, etc. my iPhone doesn’t hit the charger until about 9PM. The battery is in the yellow, but never have I had it die on me.

Your just phoning wrong.
