In just under a month from now, on October 16th, the Huawei Mate 10 will be officially announced by the Chinese manufacturer. We still do not know exactly how many variants of the device will be hitting the smartphone market, but we do know that at least one of them will come with the AI-infused Kirin 970 chipset. There have been a few leaks regarding the Mate 10, but the latest one from Evan Blass appears to be the first “in the wild” spotting of the device.
The image posted by Blass only shows the front of the device. The design of the Mate 10 appears to be essentially the same as predecessor devices the Mate 8 and Mate 9. The screen does dominate the front of the device, though not to the extent of Samsung’s bezel-less design. Blass indicates the Mate 10 Pro will come equipped with a display that can be described as bezel-less.
Blass also indicates in some replies to his tweet of the image that the fingerprint scanner is located “on the chin” of the device on the front. That would represent a change from the Mate 9 where the scanner was located on the back of the device.
