Huawei is gearing up to launch its latest flagship phone, the Mate 10. Thanks to our collaborator leak super star @OnLeaks, we have got EXCLUSIVE and access to factory CAD-based renders and a 360-degree video of the upcoming phone.

Check out the image gallery for more renders,

And here’s the 360-degree video of the same renders,

Going by the images, the design hasn’t changed much from its predecessor. It still has rounded edges and thin bezels on the sides. A front home button is a new addition though. Not sure if it is a tactile one, it will house a fingerprint sensor for sure.

As per the info. provided by @OnLeaks, the Mate 10 will measure around 150.2 (l) x 77.5 (w) x 8.4 (d) mm. There will be a slight camera bump due to the 9 mm thickness of the optics. The phone will sport a 5.9-inch screen and is likely to have glass back.

As per our sources, the Huawei Mate will feature a dual lens camera assembly. There’s no word on the megapixel count yet. What we do know for sure is that the company will retain a 3.5 mm audio jack. For charging and data transfer, you will get a USB type C port.

For those who have not heard much about Huawei, it is the third biggest smartphone maker in the world. In India, the company is mostly known for its Honor branded affordable smartphones. However, at the global arena, this Chinese brand isn’t afraid to take on the biggies such as Apple. It is quite good at making high-end smartphones. People may not believe in paying premium for Huawei brand yet, but it’s Mate series has been praised for its spectacular performance. Especially, the Mate 9 was known for its raw power and stellar camera.

Just recently, Huawei’s CEO, Richard Yu claimed that the upcoming Mate 10 will have a performance advantage over latest phones from Samsung and Apple. “Users are in for much faster (feature) performance, longer battery life, and more compact design.”- Huawei CEO Richard Yu said at IFA. Mr Yu believes that Huawei’s in-house Kirin 970 SoC (System on Chip) has an edge due to its Neural Processing Unit. The company claims that the NPU integrates various image and signal processing components right into the chipset. At this point though, nobody is sure how well it actually works. Along with the Kirin 970 chip, the phone is likely to be equipped with 6 GB RAM and 64 GB internal storage.

Overall, the phone will appeal to the “phablet” aficionados. The official reveal date is set to October 16. It will be interesting to see if this phone can really take on the upcoming iPhone (probably the iPhone 8 to be launched on September 12) and Galaxy series phones in terms of performance.

There is no clarity on the price of the mobile yet but keep watching this space for further updates.
