See how the Huawei Mate 10 Pro compares to last year's Mate 9


We are less than two weeks away from the announcement of the Huawei's new Mate 10 series, which kind of explains the deluge of leaked information, pictures, and teasers that have been unleashed in recent times. 

We already know that the Mate 10 lineup will consist of four devices - a regular Mate 10, a Mate 10 Pro, a Mate 10 Lite, and even a fancy Mate 10 Porsche Design.

A few days ago, reliable tipster Evan Blass uploaded what appears to be an official render of the Mate 10 Pro. That image (see above) gave us an idea of what to expect from the handset in the visual department, but its physical measurements largely remained a mystery. This changes today, thanks to a recent leak which surfaced on Chinese website Weibo.


Here, the upcoming Mate 10 Pro is compared to the Mate 9 from 2016. As you can see, the new device is noticeably narrower and a tad bit shorter than its predecessor. This can be largely attributed to the 6-inch screen panel with an 18:9 aspect ratio and the almost non-existing bezels that encompass it. Sadly, we can't accurately estimate the precise dimensions of the Mate 10 Pro from this picture, but we can provide you with those of the Mate 9 - 6.18 x 3.11 x 0.31 inches or 156.9 x 78.9 x 7.9 mm.

We're certainly looking forward to finding out what the Mate 10 series can offer beyond its pretty design. As you may know, the Mate 10 has been confirmed to be the first phone to feature Huawei's in-house Kirin 970 chip that will come with a dedicated NPU (Neural Processing Unit) for advanced AI tasks. At the moment, nobody really knows how the capabilities of the new hardware will translate into actual features, but we're bound to find out on October 16th.

I prefer the Mate 9 more based on the back design.
