Not content with replacing Apple as the world’s second-largest smartphone company, Huawei took a jab at the Cupertino firm last month with ads for the Mate 10, which it calls the “real AI phone.” In addition to the standard version of the upcoming flagship, Lite and Pro models will also be released later this month. Thanks to prolific leaker Evan Blass, new images of the latter device have hit the web.

Unlike the other two versions, it seems the Mate 10 Pro will be another flagship smartphone to feature a minimum-bezel design. It measures 5.99 inches and uses the same 2880 x 1440 resolution and 18:9 aspect ratio found in LG’s V30. The device also comes with the Huawei name emblazoned across the bottom.

Photography fans will likely appreciate the 12- and 20-megapixel dual Leica-branded camera setup on the back, which features at least one f/1.6 lens. There’s also a 8-megapixel front-facing snapper.

Another difference in the Pro model is the wide, shaded band across the rear. Previous reports from Blass say the handset will come with a 4,000mAh battery, 6GB of RAM, 64 or 128GB of storage, and the company's new Kirin 970 processor, which is built on the 10nm process and is said to focus on security and AI.

The handsets will reportedly include a function similar to Samsung’s DeX — a feature that turns the Galaxy S8 and Note 8 into a PC-like experience through the Dex Station dock. But unlike Samsung’s system, the version in the Mate 10 could work with all existing docks.

Huawei is expected to unveil its Mate 10 handsets on October 16.

The blue & grey colours look quite nice. The khaki one looks ghastly. These devices arrive here pretty shortly after the unveil, ours is a big Huawei market, along with Samsung.

I think I might make a Huawei phone my next handset. I got a Sony Xperia XZ Premium at release and pretty happy with it but the Huawei Watch (first Gen) went on sale on Amazon, picked one up to basically play around with and it's an awesome bit of kit! So impressed I might actually consider a Huawei phone in a couple of years time when mine gets exhausted.

I've had 3 so far. Mate2, 8, and 9.
But, I typically DO NOT buy them when they first come out. I don't care how "good" any smartphone
is, to me, it's not worth spending upwards of $1000.00 for any phone. When the Mate9 was released
it retailed for around $800.00 I picked one up a few weeks ago for less than $500.00
Plus, it doesn't matter how much you test, sometimes phones have bugs, hardware and software
out of the gate, by waiting and getting the last of the line, you typically get a smoother experience
and for me, better bang for the buck. Software updates, other than security patches are of no real
concern for me as pretty much anything past Jelly Bean, with the exception of kitkat which I skipped
has been rock solid.
