The chase for the bezel-less display technology is at its extreme peak these days and every smartphone maker is in the race. Xiaomi boasted its Mi MIX smartphone last year and its upcoming Xiaomi Mi Mix 2, while Samsung and LG followed the trend with their Galaxy S8 and LG G6 respectively. Also, Apple will probably be following this trend as well if any of its leaks regarding the iPhone 8 are to be true.
Apple is also likely to launch similar but unique design for its upcoming iPhone lineup. Certainly, Huawei is not an exception to this. Huawei is highly anticipated to launch its next flagship smartphone called as the Huawei Mate 10 with a larger 6.1-inch bezels.
Recently, render images of the upcoming Huawei Mate 10 smartphone have been leaked online which have revealed some key design details about the upcoming Huawei mobile.
Based on rumours, the Huawei Mate 10 is expected to pack a massive 6.1-inch Quad-HD display. The rear panel of the device is likely to have a dual camera module with Leica branding similar to the Huawei P10. Below the dual camera module, there is a dedicated fingerprint scanner.
Other than this, there will be a powerful Kirin 970 processor equipped under the hood along with 6GB of RAM and 64GB of onboard storage. The phone is likely to run on the latest Android Nougat OS out-of-the-box. The handset offers a brushed metal finish and has a better design.
On the pricing front, the Huawei Mate 10 is expected to cost over $1000, as per the rumors. If this comes true, the Mate 10 would be as expensive as the upcoming Apple iPhone 8.
By offering Huawei Mate 10, the Chinese smartphone maker seems to be ready to confirm that it can give tough competition to tech giants like Samsung and Apple in the high-end smartphone segment.
Recently, Huawei’s Product Head of Consumer division said that the upcoming Huawei Mate 10 will go head-to-head with the Apple iPhone 8. This also suggests the launch of the upcoming Huawei mobile in September; however, the phone is expected to get launched at an event in October. The Huawei Mate 10 is also expected to be more powerful than the iPhone 8 according to its CEO in an interview last month.
The Product Head also revealed that the Mate 10 will come with better camera offerings, an improved battery life, whereas, the talk-of-the-town will be the bezel-less design of Huawei Mate 10.
