Huawei Mate 10 Pro Leaked In Live Images Before October 16th Launch
Huawei is gearing up to launch its highly anticipated lineup of Mate 10 smartphones in Munich on October 16th. There have been a lot of leaks of the Mate 10 Pro, the flagship smartphone and new leaked images show the phone in all its glory with dual cameras and extremely thin bezels.
Recently, images and colour variants of the Huawei Mate 10 Pro were leaked by a prolific leaker on Twitter. The new live images leaked differ a little from the images with a more reflective back panel. The tipster also claims the phone will be launched in a limited Porsche Design edition with a burnished finish.
The Huawei Mate 10 Pro will be powered by Kirin 970 chipset, which was unveiled at the IFA 2017 in Berlin by Huawei. The smartphone is expected to be powered by a 4000 mAh battery and run Android 8.0 Oreo out of the box. The smartphone will have 6GB of RAM, and 64GB and 128GB onboard storage variants. The phone is also expected to be IP68 certified water and dust resistant.
The Leica branded dual camera setup at the back is said to consist of 12MP and 20MP sensors with an f/1.6 aperture and OIS. On the front, the smartphone is expected to have an 8MP camera.

Huawei boasted about the Kirin 970 chipset at the time of its unveiling and interestingly said that it has a neural transmitter, same as the A11 Bionic chipset found in the iPhone 8 and Phone X. Huawei went ahead and teased the launch of the “real AI smartphone” right after Apple’s September 12th event. It is believed that Huawei was referring to the Mate 10 Pro in that teaser.
At the IFA 2017, Mr. Richard Yu, CEO of Huawei Consumer Group said, “The NPU present inside the Kirin 970 chipset can think and actively work to provide you the best user experience, whereas other A.I. assistance like Google Assistant only works reactively.” The new chipset will also mean better battery life as Huawei suggests that it is “50 times more efficient than an average CPU.” Huawei being telecommunications giant has introduced new features in the Kirin 970 such as the Cat 18 compatibility, which means it can reach download speeds up to 1.2GB per second.
The Huawei Mate 10 Pro is expected to be launched at a premium price and will compete with the likes of the Galaxy Note8, Google Pixel 2 and the iPhone 8 in the flagship market right now.
