New render of Huawei Mate 10 Pro features "live" image showing off the lock screen
Yesterday, we showed you a couple of renders revealing the Huawei Mate 10 Pro in two different colors. The phablet, along with the Huawei Mate 10, is set to be unveiled on October 16th. This morning, we have another render of the Mate 10 Pro to show you, although this time the image shows off the phone's lock screen on the 5.99-inch LCD display. The image comes to us from leak master Evan Bass. The screen carries an aspect ratio of 18:9, a resolution of 1440 x 2880, and there are no physical buttons on the front of the phone. The fingerprint scanner is on the back of the Mate 10 Pro, along with the dual camera setup that includes Leica optics.
The Kirin 970 chipset is under the hood and this SoC includes dedicated AI capabilities. 6GB of RAM is inside along with either 64GB or 128GB of native storage. The dual cameras on back feature a 12MP sensor (with an aperture of f/1.6) and a 20MP sensor. Yes, OIS is included. The 8MP front-facing camera will handle selfies and video chats, and keeping the lights on is a 4000mAh battery.
The Mate 10 series includes the Mate 10, Mate 10 Pro, Mate 10 lite and the Mate 10 Porsche Edition. Huawei is hoping that the popularity of the lineup helps it stay ahead of Apple in global market share. While the latest data has Huawei topping Apple in global sales for the second quarter, the recent release of the Apple iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus, in addition to the upcoming launch of the Apple iPhone X, could help Apple recapture the position behind Samsung.
