Huawei Mate 10 To Have EntireView Display, Quadruple Camera, 10nm Kirin 970 Processor?

Details about Huawei's Q4 2017 to Q1 2018 flagship Android phablet are now starting to surface online.

Set to officially supersede the fairly successful Huawei Mate9 from earlier in 2017, the upcoming Huawei Mate10 will purportedly introduce a number of 'firsts' in the Chinese tech giant's mobile devices category.

According to various sources, the Mate10 will be the first device in its line to feature the all-new EntireView Display, which is the company's answer to Samsung's Infinity Display - found on the Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+ - and LG's Full Vision Display - just like what's on the LG G6. Huawei's new top-of-the-line phablet is expected to have a 6-inch bezel-less screen - to be made by Japan Display Inc. (JDI) - with 18:9 aspect ratio and 2160 x 1080 pixels resolution.

Aside from that, the Huawei Mate 10 will allegedly featured a Quadruple Camera set-up, made up of two Rear Cameras - just like that's on the P10 and P10 Plus - with the addition of two front-facing cameras for selfies. It is said that both the Dual Rear Camera and Dual Front Camera modules will be crafted in partnership with Leica and will make better contrast and cleaner bokeh effect possible using the cameraphone.

And finally, it is believed that the Mate10 will be the first smartphone from Huawei to be powered by the much-talked-about Kirin 970 processor, which is the first 10nm mobile chipset by HiSilicon. To put it simply, 10nm chips are far more powerful and vastly more energy efficient compared to their predecessors. Historically, Mate models are the first to adopt new high-end processors made by HiSilicon -- to be specific, Mate8 introduced the Kirin 950 SoC in 2015 while Mate9 debuted the Kirin 960 chip in 2016.

Huawei is expected to formally introduce Mate 10 within October 2017 and to make the device available in key markets around the globe - including the Philippines - come the latter part of Q4 2017, just in time for the Yuletide gadget-shopping season. Stay tuned for updates; I'm sure they'll be coming in rapid succession soon!
