Huawei is one such brand which teases its smartphones months ahead of the launch. For example, the company has confirmed the launch of its Mate 10 lineup in July itself. And today, Huawei has officially launched its Mate 10 lineup, which consists of three smartphones- Huawei Mate 10, Mate 10 Pro, and Mate 10 Porsche Edition.
