Huawei is set to become the latest manufacturer to include a full screen display to their upcoming smartphone.
According to leaked info from China, the Huawei Mate 10 Pro will come with a huge edge to edge display, lightning fast processor and AR features.
The Mate 10 Pro will be be the premium version of Huawei’s upcoming handset the Huawei Mate 10, which is expected to be unveiled at an event in Germany on October 16.
While the Mate 10 had been rumoured to include a full screen display, latest info claims that the upcoming smartphone will have a more “traditional” design, while the Mate 10 Pro will include what Huawei is calling its “EntireView” display.
Stunning renders which show what the Mate 10 Pro could look like were released earlier this week.
Details of the specs of the premium handset were also released and if prove to be accurate, the Mate 10 Pro could be a genuine rival to both the iPhone 8 and the Galaxy Note 8.
According to the leak, the Mate 10 Pro will include Huawei’s Kirin 970 processor, alongside 6GB RAM and 64GB of internal storage. It will also sport a 6.1 inch QHD display, with a dual sensor Leica camera and fingerprint reader on the reverse.
To support that huge display the phone will include a 4,000mAh battery.
Earlier this week, Huawei released a teaser video for the Mate 10, with the tagline “worth waiting for”.
The video doesn’t give much away but does reveal that the new phone will continue Huawei’s use of a Leica camera.
Last month, Huawei chief Richard Yu confirmed the firm would be releasing a “full screen display” smartphone this year but also said that long term, Huawei will move away from high end smartphones as it was “not making enough profit” from this market.
If these latest leaks are anything to go by it appears the Mate 10 Pro will be flagship device in Huawei’s line up for the coming year.
However, top of the range specs and stunning huge display also means a hefty price tag, with rumours claiming the Mate 10 Pro will cost upwards of $1,000.
