Huawei teased last month that the Mate 10 will feature a full-screen display to better compete with Apple. Now, a set of new CAD renders of the upcoming Huawei Mate 10 has surfaced online, showing what the device might actually look like.

The new CAD renders were published online by Compareraja in collaboration with Steve Hemmerstoffer — better known as @OnLeaks on Twitter. As expected, the Huawei Mate 10 appears to have an edge-to-edge display with significantly thinner bezels.

Interestingly, it appears as though Huawei isn’t going all out with a bezel-less design like other manufacturers. The popular rumor right now is that the Mate 10 Pro will be the only variant sporting the bezel-less design. That might disappoint some fans, but it does look like the regular Mate 10 will have thinner bezels than the Mate 9.

Another noticeable design change pertains to how the fingerprint reader is now up front just below the display. The Huawei Mate series always had its fingerprint sensor at the back. What’s not clear about the renders is whether the front-mounted fingerprint sensor will also double as a physical home button or will simply be for scanning fingerprints.

It’s being speculated by Android Authority that the Huawei Mate 10 might arrive with the taller 18:9 aspect ratio with a screen resolution of 2,160 x 1,080. If this is true, then the Mate 10’s display will actually be also taller. Priceraja did say that the device will have a 5.9-inch display.

On the back, the Huawei Mate 10 sports a dual-camera setup. No information was given as to what type of sensors and lenses these cameras will have, but it does mean that the device will have a slight camera bump.

What we do know for sure about the dual cameras is that it will be co-engineered by German camera maker Leica. As for ports, the Mate 10 is said to arrive with the 3.5mm headphone jack and USB Type-C port.

As for internals, Huawei CEO Richard Yu claimed that the Mate 10 would be a “more powerful product” with “many other features" that will help them better compete with Apple. The Mate 10 will arrive with Huawei’s own Kirin 970 processor, which will come with its own Neural Processing Unit.

The NPU will allegedly be able to integrate various images and signal processing components right into the chip. What that exactly means for actual, real-life performance remains unclear, but it doesn't mean that it will be compatible with AI assistants. The Mate 10 is also expected to arrive with 6GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage.

The Huawei Mate 10 is expected to be announced on Oct. 16. Meanwhile, everyone is now keeping an eye out for Apple as it prepares to announce the iPhone 8 next week on Sept. 12.

Huawei sees Apple as one of its main rivals and is putting a lot of effort in overtaking the iPhone maker in the smartphone market. Now, it looks like Huawei efforts have paid off.

Counterpoint Research’s recent data report shows that Huawei has already overtaken Apple as the second-largest smartphone manufacturer in the world. Although that may be the case for now, Huawei’s success over Apple is believed to be short-lived, according to Android Central.
