Huawei is about to release its flagship phone that will go head to head with other global smartphone companies. That means they are going bezel-less with the upcoming Huawei Mate 10.

Since Samsung Galaxy S8 and LG G6 have released their versions of bezel-less displays, it is no surprise that other brands will follow as well. Otherwise, they will be left behind regarding innovation and what people are interested with.

One of China’s local brands, the Xiaomi Mi Mix has been the first ever commercially available bezel-less phone. And now, another of their local brand will join the roster of the bezel-less beasts—the Huawei Mate 10.

For those familiar with Huawei’s line of smartphones, this will not come as a surprise. Since all the smartphones with the “Mate” name will have the size of a phablet. Just like its previous Mate 9 released last November 2016.

Huawei Mate10 is also reported to use its in-house processor, the Kirin 970. This processor is built in 10nm TSMC and boasts an octa-core powerhouse. It also sports a Cat. 12 LTE Band for more stable data connection.

The display is expected to showcase Japan’s next generation 6-inch display with 18:9 aspect ratio. This display will have a thin bottom edge like its other three sides. Which is best for the trending bezel-less edges.

Other features include 3D-sensing hardware, dual camera, and full support for the Augmented Reality technology. The facial recognition will also appear in this smartphone making it very much a rival against other smartphone flagships of today.

What Would Make Huawei Mate 10 Standout?

As the trend for bezel-less smartphones has already sailed, we see handsets with this technology more and more every day. And it will only be a matter of time till we could say that bezel-less is finally the norm.

Huawei Mate 10 will arrive this October, and one of the things that will make it stand out among those giants flagships is its battery. If Huawei Mate 10 will be as power-charged as the previous Huawei Mate 9, anybody can expect to have this smartphone with 4000mAh or more.

The other thing is its dual camera. Huawei has made a focused delivery using Leica’s optical camera. And by definition, the optical camera is always better than its digital counterpart. Besides, optical camera functions mostly through its hardware capability rather than rely on software program embedded to function with the camera.

This year’s phablet competition might not be as easy as last year. That is because last year was when Samsung Galaxy Note 7 made the explosive headline. Eliminating Samsung’s phablet behind and pulled out of the market.

That event made Huawei Mate 9 the best alternative for the Note 7. This year will be a lot different because Samsung will release their Galaxy Note 8. Reports said that this year comes as Samsung’s big comeback to raise their “Note” line as an answer to last year’s incident.

Whatever happens in the coming months of their release, let’s hope that it will benefit the users more than the smartphone companies itself.
