Huawei Mate 10 tipped to come with all-screen front, 10nm chipset, AR

Huawei usually releases its flagship phablets in the Mate line in the fall, and this year's Mate 10 reportedly won't be an exception. Expected to arrive in October, the big guy is now rumored to jump on the all-screen bandwagon, similar to the Galaxy S8, LG G6, the Essential phone, and, eventually, the iPhone 8. This will be a very positive development for the Mate line, as it sports thin and well-designed 6-inchers, which are still pretty big to hold or carry around.

The speculation so far is that the Mate 10 might employ JDI's Full Active screen panel - a 6" affair with 1,080 x 2,160 pixels resolution which has incredibly thin bezels all around, and will befit an all-screen phone easily. We are all for that, as JDI's creation can be used with wet fingers, and has already entered mass production, with rumors that Sony might be using it for its alleged all-screen phone that will land at the IFA expo in Berlin at the end of the summer.

Another welcome speculation about the Mate 10 is that it will be powered by the homebrew Kirin 970 chipset, as we've heard before, so the performance/power draw ratio should be in line with anything that Qualcomm or Samsung can throw at it. Huawei usually decks out its Mate line with many extras, and the Mate 10 is said to arrive with a dual camera, 3D-sensing tech paired with iris scanning, and AR support, whatever that means. In short, given that Huawei also equips its Mates with high-capacity batteries and copious amounts of RAM and storage, the Mate 10 definitely sounds like a phablet worth looking forward to, but we'll see which of these rumors will pan out in the end.

Lol, thats how they had a lot of things rumored and totally failed with the p10. If anybody will do all these things they've mentioned on android then it'll be samsung. Even if the mate10 does it, it'll be in some form of unfinished, undercooked version just so they can say they were the first on android to do it. Theres been no original feature they'ue brought to the table whatsoever, all they do is wait for apple and samsung to have something rumored and then they hurry only to implement a version thats just a little bit above vapourware.

If I'm not mistaken Huawei were the first with dual cameras. Regardless, the Mate series are excellent phones.

I am afraid you are wrong, HTC was the pioneer for dual camera.

NO, no Noooooo ! I don't want this 2:1 aspect ratio (madness) to continue !!! This aspect ratio is NOT ready for the rest of the world - yet. Stick with 16:9 please - as I am not interested in force-fitting and tweaking games and videos to the 2:1 aspect ratio. I was truly waiting for the Mate 10, because I did not like the 2:1 ratios on the S8 and G6. If 2:1 is truly what the Mate 10 employs, then I'll spend my money elsewhere - on a 16:9 ratio phone.
