Huawei Mate 10 range revealed in massive spec leak

The eagerly-anticipated Huawei Mate 10 series has been detailed in a new leak, late on Friday.

Evan Blass (aka @evleaks) has the first real details on a pair of devices codenamed Alps and Blanc.

Blanc is thought to be the Mate 10 Pro. It will arrive with a 1,440 x 2,880, 5.99-inch display, Blass reckons. It’ll have an 18:9 ratio with an edge-to-edge display, he says.

That’ll be paired with the Kirin 970 SoC and 6GB of RAM, putting the phone up there with some of the recent Android flagships.

The impressive feature list continues with a 4,000mAh battery tipped by the report, but still able to retain a 7.5mm thickness.

The leaker-in-chief (reporting for Venture Beat) also touts a 12/20-megapixel dual camera system with optical image stabilization and a f/1.6 aperture.

As with the previous generation phone, the system has been co-developed with Leica. On the front of the device there’ll be an 8-megapixel sensor.

Blass reckons it’ll be out in December packing Android Oreo, which is likely to make it one of the first to arrive with the new OS out of the box.

What about Alps?

When it comes to Alps, the report says there’ll be a slightly smaller 5.88-inch display with the same resolution, but a 16:9 aspect ratio.

The battery, processor and camera set up are all exactly the same, according to Blass. Alps will arrive as soon as October 16, he says.

According to Blass this could be the Mate 10 Lite. That would make the previously-spied Marcel codename the regular Huawei Mate 10.

Earlier this week mocked-up renders showed the devices may have a physical home button/fingerprint sensor.

Will you be snapping up the Huawei Mate 10 or a variant later this year? Will Android Oreo seal the deal for you? Share your thoughts @TrustedReviews on Twitter.
