One of the best flagship smartphones in 2016 would undoubtedly include huawei’s Mate 9 smartphone. The device came equipped with a splendid battery, internal and external specifications and a terrific design. Now, the firm is expected to follow up its Mate 9 smartphone with Mate 10 later this year. The upcoming smartphone will fall in direct competition with other devices such as Samsung Galaxy Note 8, Galaxy S8 Plus, iPhone 8, OnePlus 5, Nokia’s 8 and 9 and Google’s Pixel 2 and Pixel XL 2 smartphones.

Release of the smartphone might be in October

The technology market is especially looking forward to Huawei’s upcoming introduction due to the company CEO’s claim wherein he stated that the Mate 10 will be a tough competitor for Apple’s 10th-anniversary iPhone 8 device.

The upcoming device is heavily-speculated to be introduced on October 16th and will come with a hefty price-tag as well. Let’s take a look at a complete round-up of rumors that reveal major specifications of the upcoming smartphone.

According to a report published by TechRadar, the upcoming Mate 10 smartphone is expected to be priced anywhere above $599.99. Furthermore, the device will probably pack a 6-inch bezel-less display with an unusual 2:1 screen-to-body ratio and pixel resolution of 2,160 x 1,080. The firm will be seen investing special emphasis on the smartphone’s camera specifications. The rumors suggest that the device will come equipped with a front-facing sensor, accompanied with dual-lens and 3D face-scanning skills.

As per another report published by UberGizmo, it seems like the smartphone will sport a larger-than-usual display, thereby categorizing the smartphone in the phablet category.

With major companies working towards introducing the under-the-display fingerprint scanner feature, Huawei will probably opt for facial recognition technology instead. The company was also expected to pack up its upcoming high-end smartphone with a dual rear camera setup – however, that is something that the company hasn’t confirmed as of yet and will be uncovered with time.

Powered by the Kirin 970 chipset

The upcoming smartphone is also expected to be powered by the Kirin 970 chipset, which is the latest innovation made by the company. The device is speculated to be based on a completely new UI, which will change the device’s functionality altogether. Excess applications will pretty much be eliminated and the users can expect a clean and hassle-free experience. The smartphone is also expected to come with the support of Amazon’s Alexa digital voice assistant.
