Huawei won’t properly announce its Mate 10 smartphone series before October 16, but we already know plenty about it, including the fact that it should be comprised of multiple devices – a regular Mate 10, a Mate 10 Pro, a Mate 10 Lite, and even a Mate 10 Porsche Design.
Earlier this week, we saw some leaked images that allegedly showed the Mate 10 Pro and some of its highlight features. Now, we can say – with pretty high confidence – that those images were indeed depicting the new Mate Pro. That’s because the ever-reliable Evan Blass (aka @evleaks) today revealed what looks to be an official Huawei Mate 10 Pro render – presenting the device in three color variants (grey, blue, and brown).
As you can see above, the dual camera of the Mate 10 Pro is surrounded by a patterned strip that gives the phone a two-tone design (this is somewhat reminiscent of the Huawei P10‘s rear). Speaking of the dual camera, as on the P10, this is a Leica-branded unit with Sumilux-H lenses. But it’s been upgraded with an f/1.6 aperture for better low light performance – this matches the aperture of LG V30’s rear camera.
The Mate 10 Pro sports a near-bezel-less screen, helped by the fact that the handset’s fingerprint scanner sits on the back, not on the front (as it seems to be the case on the regular Mate 10). The screen is likely a 6-inch, 1440 x 2880 pixels one with an 18:9 aspect ratio. Powered by Huawei’s own high-end Kirin 970 processor, the Mate 10 Pro should further offer at least 4 GB of RAM, and a 4000 mAh battery.
According to Huawei, the Mate 10 “is not a smartphone”, but “an intelligent machine” – thanks to the company’s commitment to better integrate AI (Artificial Intelligence) into it. Will Huawei’s AI integration be better and more useful than what’s already on handsets made by Apple, Google, or Samsung? It remains to be seen.
