So far, here are the specs of the yet to be revealed Huawei Mate 10 we know: a 5.9-inch screen, dual lens camera setup, 3.5mm audio jack, glass back, 64GB onboard storage, and 6GB RAM. While this highpoint may be temporary in nature owing to the much awaited iPhone 8 lineup, Huawei is still moving on ahead with complete confidence as it plans to launch its Mate 10 flagship smartphone.
Counterpoint’s Associate Director, Tarun Pathak, said, “Huawei, Oppo, Vivo and Xiaomi have successfully gained access to key supply chain partners, which has allowed them to launch designs with bezel-free, full displays, Augmented Reality, in-house chipsets and advanced camera features, that have kept them toe-to-toe with rivals”. Both of these phones will also ship with Huawei’s all-new processor, the Kirin 970, which was announced quite recently during IFA 2017 in Berlin.

And then there were the 3D renders from OnLeaks, who is usually spot on with these things. One may also find it interesting to view different app icons present on the device’s screen. the images are not considered as authentic as official, we may find other renders arriving in the coming days.
Huawei CEO, Richard Yu had claimed in the recent past that the Mate 10 will be an nearly bezel-free offering, devoid of any Home button.
Also, the alleged Huawei Mate 10 is shown to be feature a Huawei logo at its bottom bezel, and it has no physical home button. People may not believe in paying premium for Huawei brand yet, but it’s Mate series has been praised for its spectacular performance. And there is no front home button either.
So while Huawei does seem to be jumping onto the bezel-less bandwagon, it isn’t doing so completely. Or rather, it will be doing it its own way. At least it won’t have to struggle with where to place its fingerprint sensor.
