Huawei is all set to launch its Mate 10 series smartphones on October 16th in Munich, Germany. The company is planning to launch three devices – Regular Mate 10, Mate 10 Pro and Mate 10 Lite, out of which the Chinese version of Mate 10 Lite (Maimang 6) was already announced last week. We are also expecting a Mate 10 Porche Edition, although it is not confirmed as of now.

Yesterday, Famous leaker Evan Blass (@evleaks) has posted an image of what appears to be the final render of Mate 10 Pro on Twitter. Later, he also posted a close-up of the rear camera module which confirms the presence of f/1.6 aperture (like the recently launched LG V30). According to Evan Blass, Mate 10 Pro might come with Leica branded 12+20MP rear dual camera setup and an 8MP Front camera. We can spot a laser autofocusing module, as well as a dual-tone LED flash on the back side of Mate 10 Pro. Huawei has already confirmed the presence of their all-new Kirin 970 SoC on Mate 10 devices. Kirin 970 was introduced back at IFA 2017. It has a dedicated NPU (Neural Processing Unit) for carrying out AI related tasks with ease. Huawei is touting a lot about the built-in AI capabilities of Mate 10 smartphones and markets them as “Real AI Phone”. They’ve also released a promo on Twitter, which you can watch by clicking here.
Huawei is also rumored to bring Samsung DeX like feature with its Mate 10 smartphones. Unlike Samsung DeX which works only with a proprietary dock, Mate 10 would also work with existing docks and lapdocks, like the Andromium Superbook and the Miraxess Mirabook. Miraxess CEO Yanis Anteur stated in an interview that the Huawei flagships coming in October would have a DeX-like feature and that they’d be compatible with the Mirabook. This feature is not confirmed as of now, so take it with a grain of salt.
