Huawei is all set to launch Huawei Mate 10 series of smartphones at an event in Germany on October 16. Just yesterday, we saw Huawei Mate 10 Pro and Mate 10 Lite specs leak revealing their specifications. Now, a new image which happens to have come from China shows the Mate 10’s front panel in someone’s hand.
The leaked image shows that Huawei Mate 10 will feature an almost bezel-less screen with a small Huawei logo on the bottom. Since the image shows only the front panel, we expect the device to feature fingerprint sensor only at the back since the front side does not show any fingerprint sensor. A few days ago also, a leaked image that surfaced online showed Huawei Mate 10 with its edge-to-edge display and button-less front. Today’s leak is inline with the previously leaked render.
Huawei is expected to launch at least two different Mate 10 versions – they may be called Mate 10 and Mate 10 Lite, or Mate 10 Pro and Mate 10. The Huawei Mate 10 is internally codenamed as Marcel, Mate 10 Lite is codenamed as Alps while the Mate 10 Pro is codenamed as Blanc.
The Huawei Mate 10 is said to come with a bezel-less 6.1-inch display with an aspect ratio of 18:9 having a 2160×1080 px resolution (4K). It will be powered by a 10nm HiSilicon Kirin 970 chipset, so it is expected to deliver performance equivalent to Snapdragon’s 835. It is said to come with 6GB RAM and 64GB internal storage. The Mate 10 is said to come with Android 7.1 preloaded with Huawei custom skin EMUI on top of it and will be backed up by 4,000mAh battery with fast charging support.
The Mate 10 Pro codenamed as Blanc will sport a 5.99-inch QHD display with 1440 x 2880 pixel resolution and 18:9 aspect ratio. It will be powered by Kirin 970 SoC coupled with 6GB RAM while internal memory options include 64GB and 128GB. The Mate 10 Pro will boast a dual rear camera setup comprising of 12megapixel and 20megapixel sensors co-developed with Leica. It will reportedly run on Android 8.0 Oreo operating system and will be backed up by a 4,000mAh battery. Some other features it offers include IP68 water and dust certification and an LTE Cat. 16 modem.
Now revealing the specifications of Huawei Alps, the report says that it will feature a 5.88-inch IPS LCD display with a resolution of 2560 x 1440 pixels. Unlike Blanc’s 18:9, Alps will be offering an aspect ratio of 16:9. It will feature 4GB RAM, 8.23mm thick body and a 4000mAh battery.
It is said to Mate 10 Lite and Mate 10 will be launched on October 16 and ship the same month, but the Huawei Mate 10 Pro is rumoured to ship only in December powered by Android 8.0 Oreo with EMUI 6.0.
