The Mate 10 Lite officially introduced as Huawei Maimang 6: four cameras, 5.9-inch 18:9 display

The Mate 10 is one of the last major smartphones to hit the market this year, a flagship that Huawei says it's worth waiting for. There have already been lots of leaks about the Mate 10 and its many variations, but no official word on any of them.
Today, Huawei introduced the Maimang 6 in China, the company's first smartphone to feature an 18:9 ratio display. We don't usually report on devices that are exclusively available in China, but the Maimang 6 is expected to be introduced in the rest of the world as Huawei Mate 10 Lite or G10.
The Maimang 6 is now available for pre-order in China for around $365 and come in Obsidian Black, Streamer Gold and Aurora Blue. The smartphone is supposed to hit the shelves on September 30.
The smartphone is equipped with a 2.36GHz octa-core Kirin 659 processor, 4GB RAM and 64GB expandable storage. A rear-mounted fingerprint sensor is included as well, along with a 3,340 mAh battery (some models come with a 3,240 mAh battery).
The Maimang 6 runs Android 7.0 Nougat with EMUI 5.1 on top, and features hybrid dual-SIM support. Connectivity-wise, Huawei's phone comes with 4G support with VoLTE, NFC (Near Field Communications), Bluetooth 4.2 and GPS with GLONASS.
As mentioned earlier, the Maimang 6 is likely to be unveiled as Huawei Mate 10 Lite next month, although some of the specs might be different.

You're absolutely smoking meth if you believe that, which you don't.

You may be right. People just won't be cross shopping between these 2 devices, however and as far as preliminary information is concerned iPhone X is about 3 times more expensive, hence I really doubt is 3 times better device than this Huawei.

I just got the Mate 9 and I'm really, really liking it so far. At $450 on Amazon, I'd say it's a better deal than this, and likely going to be easier to get your hands on.

The lite is not meant to compete with the x at a 1/3 of the cost. What this phone will do is sell to those that want a phone but dont need the greatest , but the good enoughs. Which in the end may take sales away from Apple AND One plus One . I dont think Apple cares though they know theres enough gullible suckers out there that will believe every line out there that Apple feeds them. Such as you dont need a headphone jack, or that 1000+ is reasonable and just the cost of doing business. BLAH but look at all the dumb asses that voted for Clinton so it makes sense that there be a ton of sheep to get inline for Apple they believe ANYTHING.
