Huawei Mate 10 is the company's next big flagship and it has just leaked out

The Huawei Mate 10 will officially be unveiled in nearly a month, on October 16th, but it has already leaked out, thanks to prolific leaker Evan Blass.

The Mate 10 is the company's big phone, a bit like the Note is to Samsung (but without the stylus) and it was expected to become the company's first 'bezel-less' design, but this leaked picture shows that it does have both a small chin and a forehead. The side bezels are tiny, though, and overall the screen-to-body ratio of the Mate 10 is definitely very high.

The Mate 10 is expected to come with a brand new, home-made Kirin 970 system chip that will support a significantly faster dual camera (with a secondary monochrome shooter) and will allow Huawei to step into artificial intelligence (AI) computing.

The phone is also said to run on Huawei's custom EMUI interface on top of Android 8.0 Oreo, which could make it the company's first Oreo based handset.

Other specs include a 5.9-inch display, a 3.5mm headphone jack, a USB-C port, 6GB of RAM and 64GB of native storage. A Mate 10 Pro version with slightly higher specs is allegedly also in the cards.

Huawei is not a company that is particularly popular in the United States, but the Mate series are available unlocked in the US, so chances are this new phone will also come stateside. Across the globe, Huawei's popularity has grown a lot in the past year or so, and the company overtook Apple in unit sales in the past quarter and is aiming to overtake Samsung as the world's most prolific phone maker.

And right above are some earlier leaks and renders of the Huawei Mate 10.

So what do you think, are you planning on getting yourself one?

That's a very simplistic way to spin things. The new aspect ratios is the way the market is moving and AI is another feature to consider. Also, refinement in every aspect is nothing to sneeze at and should be applauded in my opinion. Lastly, we don't know enough about this phone to conjure up any viable opinions on it other than the looks from one angle, to say you're way too early would be an understatement.

True. Maybe I'm just getting older and bored with phones. I've been into phones since my first phone, an original Nokia 3310. Phones back then were original looking an mad. That's what I loved about them. Phones like the Nokia 3650, 7650 or things like the Siemens and Motorolas of the time. That's just me.

Going by my experience with the Mate 9, I am sure this will be a fantastic phone. It does not receive the attention that Samsung or Apple receives, but overseas I am sure it will do well.

Triangle phone was invented in the TV show: The Office.

That's a 16:9 aspect ratio. So Huawei has decided not to adopt the 1:2 aspect ratio, then?

I dont give two craps what Huawei does with the Mate10 because they barely support the Mate9. Its so far behind on security patches its scary. When i plop down money on an unlocked flagship I expect some type of software support.

My mate 9 had been excellent. Superb battery life, extremely fast and accurate fingerprint sensor, powerful, lots of fast memory, good mobile reception. The only disappointment is that it is still on the June android security update. If there is a version of the 10 with a proper screen resolution of 16:9 then I'd consider selling this to upgrade.

Agreed. I prefer the V30 and GS8 but this design is still better that the essential phone and the iPhone X. Let's hope Google doesn't screw up the design of the Pixel XL 2 and just make it exactly like the V30.

There is a Mate 10 pro which will be better. However this is a nice upgrade to mate 9. The Mate 10 will be as compact as the 5.5 inch p10 plus and besides they use the bottom and top bezels pretty well with what looks like dual front camera or IR for 3D face recognition and a front finger print scanner. None of that long fake screen size. I'm hoping for more aesthetic improvement to EMUI 6.0.

In addtion for the Huawei Mate 10, Huawei would launch, at least, two different Huawei Mate 10 Editions, which may be called as Mate 10 and Mate 10 Lite, or Mate 10 and Mate 10 Pro. Regardless of which naming will be used, the front panel leaked today belongs to the higher-end variant.According to this link it will carry a 6GB of RAM alongside with 64/128GB of internal memory. We don’t know for sure if the Smartphone will support expansion via microSD. Because the mobile will use a thin bezel model, it will be 7.5mm thick and pack with a hefty amount of 4,000 mAh battery capacity.

The Mate series have always had excellent screen to body ratios so I was expecting more. Depending on what the final product looks like it's between the Mi Mix 2 and this for me.

If they're gonna rip on Apple, at least make a better looking device. This thing is boring
