New Huawei Mate 10 renders surface

Huawei itself teased us last month by showing off all of its handsets that featured a dual-camera setup. All of the models had already been released except for the one that had an October 16th unveiling date listed; this is the Huawei Mate 10. The excitement is building for the Mate 10, thanks to the home grown Kirin 970 SoC that will power the phone. Built using the 10nm process, the octa-core CPU utilizes the bigLITTLE architecture with four powerful Cortex-A73 cores and four Cortex-A53 cores to handle light housekeeping.

Besides supporting clock speeds up to 2.8GHz, the Mali-G71 MP8 GPU and LPDDR4 RAM at 1866MHz, the Kirin 970 chipset will also include dedicated AI capabilities. The chip also works well with dual camera systems that employ one RGB sensor, and one that shoots in monochrome. Huawei has used this combination before, so we expect to see it again on the Mate 10.

Today, some renders of the device were posted online, and even though we have seen images of the phone before, it doesn't hurt to get additional looks of the device. The handset will be unveiled on October 16th and is said to employ an embedded fingerprint scanner in the home button. The screen will measure 5.9-inches, and yes Virginia, it will come with a 3.5mm headphone jack. It also carries a Type-C USB port, 6GB of RAM and 64GB of native storage.

Huawei has a goal. It wants to surpass Samsung and Apple to become the top smartphone manufacturer in the world. During the second quarter, only 2.5 million handsets separated Apple's smartphone shipments from Huawei's total. The latter is counting on a strong performance later this year by the Mate 10, in an attempt to cut into that gap even more.

Shipping phones is not the same as selling them... and what these OEM's don't understand is that they can ship or sell more phones than apple but the majority of them are low to medium end phones when compared to apple that sells more flagships than sammy, lg and huawei combined. (i dislike apple don't get me wrong but facts are facts)

Dou you really believe that that OEMs doesn't aware of that fact? What are you suggesting, because of they can't sell more high-end phones than Apple, should they give up completely?

Note 8 is the ugliest phone on earth. Everybody can compete against it.

I hope you're being sarcastic, because not every OEM can afford the cost of production of the Note8

Ugliest mate ever. Blatantly copied from note series.

I think it's fake because huawei always put the headphone jack in their flagship in the bottom

It's fake, no way they move the fingerprint sensor to the front.

why not ? They did that on the P10 and honor 9;

Exactly, the Mate series is designed to be different than the P series. I can't see them changing it to match the other and possibly loose customers. With them advertising a higher screen ratio it's really not easy with a bezel having a large home button.

Mate series wasn't about finger print scanner. It was about the big screen, big battery, minimum bezels. P series was about the premium built and camera.

Yeah they did but it's ugly. It makes the bezels huge. The back FPS is awesome.

True but rumors are pointing to the Pro version to be near bezeless with slight curves this year. This very well could be it albeit disappointing

Expecting far more less bezels. Mate 9 already had 77.5% screen to body ratio, and if this is Mate 10 bezels then it will be a very minor difference. However the phone looks too basic and simple to be the real Mate 10.

There's no how this phone will have a bezel ratio higher than 75% TBH..

Galaxy Note 7 with less bezels? Is that all they can come up with? Seriously?

What a disappointment of a design - no bezel-less front...

Kirin 970 has Mali-G72 MP12, and there is no mention about the Mate 10 Pro and Lite.

This is ugly! The front looks like a Samsung, the back looks horrible. I hope this is fake.

Huawei also ships $50, $80 and $110 smartphones while Apple only ships their latest flagship which usually costs between $750 and $1,000 .. How can you say that Hawawa or Huawei is going to surpass Apple ??? when you sell a phone with a profit margin of $10 is not comparable with somebody who sells phone with a profit margin of at least $500 in each handset !!

Because they're talking about market share and units shipped, not profits. They are 2 very different things and some companies would rather more people use their product than price gauge the ones who can afford to spend more for less simply because they like iOS.
