- Alleged Mate 10 Pro front panel suggests very thin bezel on both sides
- Dual camera setup on the rear similar to predecessor
- Will be launched at an event on October 16
Huawei’s upcoming flagship device, Mate 10 is speculated to launch at an event on October 16. The company rolled out the invitation of the same last month. However, the invite did not clearly mention that it’s the launch of Mate 10, but, it did mention “Meet the device worth waiting for”, with a ‘10’ shadow in the background. Now, a recent leak has surfaced the internet that allegedly shows off the Huawei Mate 10’s front panel, confirming that the device will directly compete with the already launched Samsung Galaxy Note 8 and LG G6.
In a recent report, Slashleaks has uploaded an image captioned, “Alleged Huawei Mate 10 Pro Front Panel Leak Out”. The image shows off the front panel of Huawei Mate 10 Pro suggesting very thin bezel on both sides, slight notch at the top hosting sensors, speaker and front camera, and a thinner chin, as compared to its predecessor.

The company also recently announced that its new devices will be powered by the next-gen Kirin 970 Processor. With the recent announcement, the company is planning to take smartphone experience to a whole new level.
The next-gen Kirin 970 is fabricated on a 10nm manufacturing process with about 5.5 billion transistors and consists of an octa core processor with 4X2.4Ghz+4X1.8Ghz Cortex-A73 and A-53 cores respectively. The Kirin 970 will enable advanced Artificial intelligence features including faster voice and image recognition. It will also resolve latency issues on the upcoming devices from Huawei including the Mate 10 – and – what is said to be its upgraded version – Mate 10 Pro. With this, Huawei plans to take on the Samsung, Apple and LG.
The device is backed by a 4000mAh battery and is expected to run on Android 7.1.2 Nougat. Huawei has recently confirmed that there will be Android Oero update for both the devices soon. The cost of both the devices has yet not been revealed by the company.

Huawei and Apple are the only manufacturers to manufacture their own chipsets, while, all the other smartphone manufacturers rely on Qualcomm and MediaTek for processors.
With the launch of these devices, Huawei is expected to give tough competition to Apple, which is ready to launch its anniversary special device of September 12 along with recently launched high-end flagship devices from Samsung and LG.
