First Huawei Mate 10 renders leaked out along with some specs (Updated)

UPDATE: It turns out that these pictures were captured from a video made by a designer. This is just a Huawei Mate 10 concept, NOT the real thing. We've added a video above for a clear view of what the phone could look like.

The first renders of what appears to be Huawei's next flagship, the Mate 10, have just arrived and they're looking pretty darn good. Huawei Mate 10 will be a bezel-less phablet with a massive 6.1-inch display with Quad HD resolution.

The back side reveals a dual-camera setup featuring Leica lens, dual LED flash and OIS (optical image stabilization). The fingerprint sensor is positioned below the primary camera since the phone doesn't come with a Home button on the front side, and Huawei hasn't been able to put it under the display.

Unfortunately, the top side of the phone isn't shown in these pictures, so it's impossible to say whether or not the Mate 10 comes with a 3.5mm audio jack port, but there's definitely a USB Type-C port on the bottom side, along with two speakers.

Under the hood, Huawei Mate 10 is said to pack a powerful Kirin 970 processor, coupled with 6GB RAM and 64GB expandable storage. The phablet will be powered by a 4,000+ mAh battery and will run Android Nougat right out of the box.

Price-wise, Huawei's upcoming top-tier smartphone is rumored to cost more than $1,000, which is a bit ridiculous, so we're not sure if we should take the information seriously.

Look more like a concept render but great!

Most probably is fake, usually early prototypes of Huawei would not have the company's logo or name on.

Also most of Huawei flagship in the past all have advertisement render photoshopped to look like bezel-less.

Until they ditch their s**tty software, I won't be buying Huawei phones ever again. They need a complete overhaul in the software department.

I've gotta agree with you. Very nice muted skin on my mate 9. Haven't had a Huawei phone previously but I know it was considered a weak point for a long time. No more.

actually a lot of people are misinformed about emui and Xiaomi's Miui.... they both have improved alot in recent years and are currently one of the most feature packed skins and also very fluid in operation...

You are right, EMUI is really heavy, even in its 5.0 version. It changes everything in the way Android works... Compared to it, TouchWiz almost feels like stock Android. Don't get me wrong, it's not the worst Android interface (MIUI earns that title), but it still needs to be lightened a lot.

Looks good. I guess we've gotten to a stage where a bezelles phone can look ordinary, since every oem are now using thesame facial design.

"Price-wise, Huawei's upcoming top-tier smartphone is rumored to cost more than $1,000, which is a bit ridiculous, so we're not sure if we should take the information seriously." An unlocked iphone 7+ with 256GB is $969.00, right now, on the Apple website. Apple Care is $129.00 An unlocked S8+ has a list price of $824.99. The 2017 256GB memory card is $199.00. Millions and millions of people pay a thousand dollars for hand-held computing devices that make cellular telephone calls. Apple and Samsung have people paying $1.000.00 for these products, why is it different for Huawei?

"Apple and Samsung have people paying $1.000.00 for these products, why is it different for Huawei?" Because Huawei's brand doesn't garner the same respect?

Perhaps. I pay more attention to the automotive industry than the "technology" industry. 33 years ago you would have won yourself a fairly decent, backwards inflation adjusted, bet if you would have bet me that Toyota would present an automobile that redefined Luxury and set a different standard for world class luxury autos. Not to mention have that name in the title of a book. And, Mercedes admitted in an automotive publication that their biggest concern was in Japan. Huawei is number 3 on the list and has its eyes on the prize. Apple and Samsung need to walk circumspectly.

Why would people pay the same price for Huawei when they can get better brands.

Because Huawei's phones aren't great like Samsung Apple LG's phones

Ahh daam its got the Kirin 970 processor, now that sucks. Also does anyone know what the custom rom scene is like with Huawei flagships?

13. Plasticsh1t

Posts: 3109; Member since: Sep 01, 2014

Not much. Poor at best. If you like custom roms get a One plus device. They have great support in the development community.

Thanks for the reply bro, oh wow that sucks, it's a shame really, they have started to make decent hardware but the software as usual is typical OEM trash.

Exactly. That's why I prefer stock or near stock android to get rid of the oem trash. Install a good custom rom and you're all set.

The first picture is a fake. It's a fan made concept. And while it is bezel-less, it looks ugly and unprofessional

Really love the Mate 9 / Huawei P10 use of metal. If this turns out to be how the Mate 9 will look, and if it feels more compat than the S8+ while embodying a 6 inch screen, will definitely consider selling away my curren S8 for this! Just a concept render, but it looks sexy! Hope the Mate 10 resembles it!

not really interesting compared to Note 8 and LG V30 Lets see once it is released.

Again the, ridiculous, price tag of a 1k and up just makes it less appealing to me if true. Sams holds for the Note 8 with the exception that Samsung usually discounts or add extra peripherals (Gear VR or Curve panel OLED TV) to sweeten the deal and make it more palatable. But Yeah, its getting ridiculous with these commanding prices.

The mate 10 keeps getting more and more exciting! Please get support for all 4 carriers and you will have a winner.

The Mate and P series support all four US carriers and always have. The problem has been Verizon and Sprint only allowing "approved" phones on their networks which basically translates to forcing consumers to buy carrier branded phones. AT&T and T-Mobile don't pull that crap. Back on topic, it's either the Mate 10 or Mi Mix2 for me. I actually like both EMUI and MIUI plus both series always have outstanding battery life.
