Alleged Huawei Mate 10 Pro shows up in leaked images sans rear-mounted fingerprint sensor

Huawei is expected to unveil at least three new smartphones on October 16, all three variations of the Mate 10 flagship. In fact, one of them, the Mate 10 Lite, was officially introduced in China as Huawei Maimang last week.

Two other high-end handsets, Huawei Mate 10 and Mate 10 Pro, will be announced next month, but we already know quite a lot about both devices. All three models will pack displays of various sizes, but with 18:9 ratio. We also know that the Mate 10 Lite will come with a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor, something that doesn't seem to be present in the Mate 10 Pro model.

Two blurry pictures showing the Huawei Mate 10 Pro have just leaked out and the first thing we've noticed is the lack of fingerprint sensor on the back side. Obviously, that doesn't mean Huawei has dropped the idea of adding such a component, it's just that it might put it in a different location.

Assuming these pictures are legit, the Mate 10 Pro could employ the same unlocking technique as the iPhone X and Samsung Galaxy Note 8: face recognition. Also, a fingerprint sensor might be hidden under the display, or positioned on one of either left or right edges of the phone.

We'll most likely learn more about Huawei's upcoming Mate 10 smartphones in the coming weeks, so don't get too excited just yet.

Would prefer more squarish corners since bezels are so thin here and flat back are my thing. However, this is perfect screen to body. Got my eyes on this!

Wouldn't it be a HOOT if Huawei figured out how to make the fingerprint sensor WORK inside the display, when Apple could not?
