This could be the expensive Huawei Mate 10 Porsche Design

We're less than a month away from Huawei's major unveiling announcement where the Chinese company is expected to introduce its new Mate 10 series. Just like in the last couple of years, Huawei will launch multiple variants of its flagship, but some of them will only be available in select markets.

One of the devices that's likely to be launched on the market later this year is the Huawei Mate 10 Porsche Design. Since the regular version is said to be priced to sell for around $850, the Porsche Design model should be much more expensive.

A couple of renders of the unannounced Huawei Mate 10 Porsche Design have just been leaked on YouTube, but it's yet unclear whether or not they're accurate. A complete list of specs and details about the phone's release date and price appear in the video as well.

Just like the regular Mate 10, the Porsche Design model is said to flaunt a 5.9-inch AMOLED display with QHD (2560 x 1440 pixels) resolution. The same Kirin 970 processor will be included inside, along with either 6 or 8GB RAM, as well as 128 or 256GB storage.

The smartphone will be equipped with a dual-camera setup (16MP + 23MP) featuring Leica lens, while in the front there should be a 13-megapixel selfie snapper. It will be powered by a 4,500 mAh battery with fast charging support. Undoubtedly, the Mate 10 Porsche Design will ship with Android 8.0 Oreo and EMUI 6.0 on top.

As far as the price goes, there's no reason for Huawei to sell it cheaper than the previous model, so there's a high chance the Mate 10 Porsche Design will cost around $1,350-$1,500. We suspect the phone won't be launched on the market until later this year or early 2018.

Not a big fan of the red and blue, but the phone itself looks pretty awesome.

No more flagship grade bezels. Good job. But it's time to focus on software Huawei. Otherwise slap stock android on it.

Another fan made render. I dont understand why these tech sites posts everything they find without even have a look whether it is actual or fake.

They do not care - as long as there's a chance people will click on it, it'll go online.

Looks nice in the marketing photo. I like how they did the cameras and FPS. I wished Samsung has did the same. Likely no room due to the wireless charging hardware. But no protruding cameras, very slim bezels, nice color shade. Anyone think the next smartphone revolution will be dropping the front facing camera?

Once again, consumers get sucked into buying something based on how it looks. I've had 3 Huawei phones. Mate2, 8, 9. LOOKS are the LAST thing I consider when looking for a smartphone. It's A PHONE...but, to many it's a status/fashion statement. More concerned about how something looks, versus how it functions. When a phone is announced, the FIRST thing typically out of their mouths is something like "look how sleek, stylish, slim & colorful it is". Really? Is this a piece of jewelry? (what they charge for em, you'd think so). IT'S A PHONE... Build costs of 200-300 for even the most expensive phones, and they "command" upwards now of 1000.00 or more. Hey, can't blame the manufacturers. If people are crazy enough to part with their money for something they keep 12-24 months, it's their money. "Oh, but I only rent it for 2 years". Yeah, and you keep paying and paying and paying.

Pretty phone function just as well as ugly phone. I like Good design because it's simply pleasant to watch not just because status statement, if only that's what I care I'll buy iphone even when I don't like the design. People like beautiful thing what's so hard to understand?
