Huawei Mate 10 renders show the return of the home button

Huawei Mate 10 renders show the return of the home button

Also, the dual rear camera will protrude an extra 0.5 mm. Right off the bat, the screen we notice is nothing like the Galaxies and LGs we've witnessed this year. We aren't sure but there is also a chance of Mate 10 Lite version. Also, the company might move a fingerprint scanner to the front side of the Honor V10, even though it was placed on the back of the Honor V9, but the Honor 9 sports a front-facing fingerprint scanner, so... it remains to be seen what will be the case with the Honor V10.

While it's not obvious from the renders, we think that the Mate 10 will feature the trendy new 18:9 aspect ratio, with a resolution of 2,160 x 1,080 pixels and a diagonal size of around 5.9 inches. That said, it looks like the Mate 10 will not sport a bezel-less display like most of the competitions do.

Counterpoint Research's recent data report shows that Huawei has already overtaken Apple as the second-largest smartphone manufacturer in the world. What that exactly means for actual, real-life performance remains unclear, but it doesn't mean that it will be compatible with AI assistants.

One major departure from previous Mate phones is the placement of the fingerprint sensor on the front of the device, just below the screen. Huawei's Australian Twitter account has virtually confirmed the Mate 10 will come with a dual-lens camera, which is expected to feature Leica technology once again.

Yu said that the AI integrated into the new chip will be capable of listening to and performing voice commands, real-time language translation, and also run apps based on augmented reality. While this was quite a claim, the phone does look really impressive.

In terms of how the NPU will help the Huawei Mate 10 take good photos, Yu told Forbes: "It can tell the difference between a cat or a flower when you're trying to take photos, and the (Image Signal Processors) will adjust accordingly".
