Huawei teases us with first Mate 10 picture, confirms October 16 unveiling
by Cosmin Vasile / Aug 24, 2017, 6:12 AM
Huawei's forthcoming flagship, the Mate 10 is still a few months away, but the Chinese company has already started to take a jab at the competition. The main rival, Samsung, has just unveiled the Galaxy Note 8, which is going to hit shelves in September.
The Mate 10, on the other hand, won't be available for purchase until October, as Huawei has just confirmed the phablet will be officially introduced on October 16.
Huawei Australia recently tweeted a picture of all its flagships that packs dual-camera setup. Obviously, that wouldn't be unusual unless the picture would also include a device that hasn't been announced yet, the Mate 10.
The phablet is the biggest of the four flagships shown in the image and comes with a nasty hashtag that suggests the Mate 10 is much better than any of Samsung's flagships: #beyondthegalaxy.
Even though we're also offered a glimpse at the Mate 10's rear side, it's the first picture of the phone that comes through official channels. The good news is more details about the phablet are likely to leak in the coming weeks, so stick around if you're a Huawei fan.

#beyond the galaxy? Seriously? Don't you think it's kinda too much to get your cheap low grade phone compared with the Galaxy line product? Just because your sale gains notably doesn't mean you have something to do with Samsung. Take NOTE! Be aware of your place, cheap brand NOWEI

If you tried any recent huawei phone, yes they are still a notch or two behind samsung but they do not feel cheap. I own a S8 btw. And i remember when samsung used to make fun of apple when they were still producing plastic phones that felt very cheap next to an iPhone as well.

Samsung phones, despite being plastic, had several notable features that were better than iphone (display, size, specs, etc.). They were also competing in the same market. However, huawei taking a swipe at samsung is just laughable. Most of their sales come strictly from China and the only thing they have an edge is with price. Maybe #beyondLG would be more appropriate for them.

Wow what an idiot. I love Samsung but you are certainly an idiot. The first thing, Huawei phones are certainly not cheap. They are better built than most of the phones out there. Even the $400 Honor 8 is better built than the Galaxy S7. Huawei's phones remains faster even after a year of usage and 90% storage consumption. Yes, Samsung has better cameras, S-Pen can't be competed by any competitor, it's a great productivity tool. Samsung's displays are better. But should Huawei not market it's phones? Every brand exaggerate about how great its phone is. Or should they say "hey we are launching a phone, it's not that great but you may buy one if you want to".

Koreans will always trash on non korean products. So just ignore them. I've been using Samsung phones since my Iphone 4 and although I liked the tech in Samsung phones, their phones are buggy and sluggish as hell compared to the Iphone 4. Now I'm using a Nexus 6p after I had to return my Note 7 and the 6p is much less buggy and smoother than any of the Samsung phones I owned. I haven't used any Huawei phones yet but I would love to try them if they ever make it out of China. Huawei is not out of their mind wanting to compete with Samsung in China. They would be out of their mind if they are promoting their products being better than Apple's. This year, when the Iphone 8 releases, it's surely going to outsell the Note 8 and Mate 10 in China despite the Iphone 8 being probably 3x more expensive than the Mate 10. The Chinese have always held the Apple brand in much higher regards than Chinese and Korean brands and they are willing to pay the extra for Apple over domestic brands. Apple didn't do well in China lately because the past few Iphones were hardly changed from the previous years.

It's a nice poke at Samsung. But I doubt if it will go beyond the galaxy in terms of sales.
