Spoilers also revealed the design of the upcoming Mate 10.

The renders for the new handset has allegedly leaked, claims a Weibo user.

Looking at the renders, the screen of the new device has super thin bezels with round corners. The back looks flat as well, which suggests that the company has shunned away from the curved back panels of its previous models.

A vertical dual-lens camera can be spotted on the back panel, located in the top center. The camera shows a Leica brand marking. A fingerprint sensor can also be seen below the camera.

The chief detailed that they are coming out with an outstanding device that has longer battery life than the other existing products in the market.

Yu also shared the new handset features more improved photographic capabilities. It also comes with quicker changing speed, and other undisclosed features to rival the next iPhone.

In the interview, the chief emphasized that their plan is to produce high-end devices. They are willing to let go of the cheaper models due to the very small margin, which is not bringing in profit to the company.

Huawei is now the third leading smartphone manufacturer in the world. The Chinese company aims to surpass the domineering Apple and Samsung this year by targeting to ship up to 150 million units, which is a significant increase compared to last year’s 139 million units. #Huawei Mate 10 #Oct 16
