Huawei Mate 10 billed for October release
The Honor 9 was only just released but Huawei are already set for the launch of the Mate 10, the flagship device of their main product line, in October.
The Mate 9 was released in November last year to a positive reception and the Mate 10 is set to build on its strengths, while keeping up with new features in the industry. It is expected to feature an edge-to-edge 6" Full Active JDI display, with an 18:9 aspect ratio and an accompanying resolution of 2160x1080p. This is obviously an attempt to keep up with the new aspect ratio trend that was brought to the mainstream market by the LG G6 and the latest Samsung flagships.
It's also said to feature 3D technology, facial recognition, iris scanning, and some Augmented Reality (AR) traits that may or may not be gimmicks. Performance-wise, it will be powered by the Kirin 970, HiSilicon's next-gen SoC built on a 10nm manufacturing process.
Keep in mind that the Kirin 960 in the Honor 9 has benchmark scores better than those of some devices carrying the Snapdragon 835. The Kirin 970 may very well be the SoC to beat come winter.
We'll be sure to keep you updated if anything new comes up.
