After the CAD-based image renders of the Huawei Mate 10 leaked online a couple of days ago, a live image of what could be the next big offering from Huawei aka the Mate 10 has appeared online. As you can see from the image below, the smartphone comes with minimal bezels on top and bottom with almost no bezels on either side of the screen.
While there’s no telling if the leaked image comes anywhere close to legit, but, it sure falls in line with details revealed by the company’s CEO some time ago.
What’s more interesting, though, is the lack of a home button on the front especially when the CAD-based renders of the phone leaked a couple of days ago showed one on the front. Check out the image below to get a fair idea.
It’s possible that the phone displayed in CAD renders is the standard Mate 10 with the one in today’s image leak being a Pro version of the same. Or, they could just be early prototypes of the Mate 10 the company is testing currently. So, let’s just take this piece with a pinch of salt.
As for the internals, the Mate 10 is said to be powered by the company’s in-house Kirin 970 chipset which will reportedly be built on 10nm process node. The Mate 10 is rumoured to pack 6GB of RAM and 128GB of native storage space further expandable up to 256GB via a microSD card.
The device will boast a huge 6.3-inch bezel-free IPS LCD display at the front with a resolution of 1440 x 2960 pixels. As far as the imaging is concerned, you’ll get a 20MP+12MP Leica-branded shooter on the back and 13MP camera on the front to capture selfies.
The Mate 10 will reportedly ship with Android 8.0 Oreo pre-installed. There will, of course, be the company’s custom skin — EMUI 6.0 on top of it. The entire package will be backed by a 4,000mAh or an even higher capacity battery. The smartphone will be officially launched on October 16 in Munich, Germany.
