Huawei’s flagship Mate series is getting its annual refresh soon. The previous iterations of the device have been commended by users for its good battery and camera performance. The Mate 10, which is expected to sport a beefier feature list, will be released on October 16th, according a recent teaser by Huawei.
As usual, alleged leaks and rumors about the Mate 10 have started surfacing. A 3D render has shown up on the interwebs and it looks promising:
Take this with a grain of salt as no smartphone released to date, has gotten rid of side bezels completely. At least not yet.
Huawei CEO confirmed that the Mate 10 will feature a bezel-less screen so that much is believable from the render. The design, however, doesn’t seem in-tune with any Huawei phone, or any Mate series smartphone for that matter.
Xiaomi’s Mi Mix 2 is also coming out during the same time period. It could give Huawei tough competition owing to its lower price and an expectedly better bezel-less design.
Rumors claim that the Mate 10 will come with a 6.1 inch QHD (2560 x 1440) resolution IPS LCD screen. As evident from the 3D render above, the phone will have a dual camera setup with Leica lenses and a dual LED flash. Mate 10 will use dual cameras on the front as well.
Other rumored specifications include a HiSilicon Kirin 970 SoC with 6 GB RAM and 64 GB internal storage. Additionally, it will come with Android 7.0 Nougat and will be powered by a 4,000 mAh battery with fast charging support.
Expected price is north of $1,000, higher than most other flagship phones released this year.
