More Huawei Mate 10 Pro images leak ahead of official reveal
Huawei is expected to unveil its successor to the lauded Mate 9 series this upcoming Monday during a press event in Munich, Germany. Like most big smartphone reveals, however, a good chunk of the design and even core specifications have made it out into the wild well before the official launch date. A recent tweet from evleaks is the latest unconfirmed rendering showing off the supposed Mate 10 Pro from multiple angles.
The renderings line up perfectly with the live images of the Mate 10 Pro spotted earlier this month to give more credence to the source. The design looks to include very narrow bezels on all four sides to the point where the Home button has been omitted entirely not unlike the upcoming iPhone X. It's possible that the onscreen digital Home button from the Mate 9 will make its return to help users adjust. The signature Leica cameras should be returning as well.
While we've now had multiple sneak peeks at the looks of the new flagship, its specifications have been more difficult to narrow down. Differences between the Mate 10 Pro and standard Mate 10 have not been detailed outside of their slightly dissimilar screen sizes and aspect ratios. We do know, however, that Huawei is planning on incorporating an AI accelerator as a way to improve the user experience and to better distinguish the new Mate series from competitors. The Mate 10 would theoretically be able to recognize objects, words, faces, and patterns significantly more quickly than other smartphones and provide more relevant suggestions based on unique user preferences. This would also open the door to unique Android apps should developers want to take advantage of the AI accelerator.
Notebookcheck will be live at the event on October 16th at 8AM ET for a preview of the Mate 10 family. Users at home can catch the livestream here.
