Huawei is expected to announce its trio of flagship Mate 10 smartphones next month. Now, it looks like details on the most affordable variant, the Mate 10 Lite, have already leaked online.

VentureBeat’s Evan Blass has revealed that the Huawei Mate 10 Lite is currently codenamed as Rhone and it will have a total of four cameras on board. It’s being called as a quad-camera setup, which means that the device will have dual cameras on the back, and another set of dual cameras up front for taking selfies. Blass says that Huawei plans to market the Mate 10 Lite as its premiere quad-camera smartphone.

The Mate 10 Lite will have 16-megapixel and 2-megapixel cameras on the back, while up front, the device will have 13-megapixel and 2-megapixel cameras. Blass says that the selfie dual cameras on the Mate 10 Lite will have a “two-person bokeh effect.” This may mean that selfies taken with the front-facing cameras will have background blur even when there are two subjects in a single picture. This is somewhat similar to the software solution that Apple uses for the iPhone 7 Plus’ Portrait mode or what Samsung’s doing for the Galaxy Note 8’s Live Focus Mode.

Additionally, the Mate 10 Lite is said to arrive with a 5.9-inch FullView display with an 18:9 aspect ratio. This will be the first Huawei device to feature that type of display technology.

Blass claims that the Huawei Mate 10 Lite will have an 83-percent screen-to-body ratio, while its full-metal unibody enclosure will still be the same size as a smartphone with a 5.5-inch display. This is possible since Huawei has made the handset’s top and bottom bezels very thin.

As for the display resolution, the Huawei mate 10 Lite will have a Full HD+ resolution of 1,080 x 2,160. What’s interesting here is that the screen resolution on this device is actually higher than the regular Mate 10, which is believed to be 1080p Full HD. This is because the regular Huawei Mate 10 will feature the traditional smartphone display aspect ratio of 16:9, as pointed out by Android Police.

As for internal specs, the Huawei Mate 10 Lite is on the higher-end of the spectrum, while still not being on the top-tier. The Mate 10 Lite will be powered by Huawei’s octa-core Kirin 659 SoC processor with a clock speed of 2.3GHz. That handset will also have 4GB of RAM, 64GB of storage and a decent 3,340 mAh battery.

On the software side of things, the Huawei Mate 10 Lite will run Android Oreo straight out of the box with Huawei’s EMUI 5.1 skin running on top. The handset will also be available in three color options: black, gold and blue.

The Huawei Mate 10 Lite will launch on Oct. 16 alongside the regular Mate 10 and Mate 10 Pro in Munich, Germany. The Mate 10 Lite is expected to start shipping a month after and it will sell for €379 in Europe or around US$455 in the U.S.
