Huawei Mate 10 series rumor mill has been in full swing, every day we are getting new leaks. Recently, we have encountered with some images showing the full front panel. To extend the rumor chain further, Chinese tipster Ice Universe conveys some case protector images of Mate 10 (most probably the pro variant) exposing the rear panel of the device first time.
The rear portion of the device somehow resembles the Mate 9, but the interesting part is that there is no fingerprint shown neither on the front nor the back as per the leaked images. The fingerprint might be placed on the power button, or the company would be thinking to remove and come up with Face Lock solution, similar to iPhone X.
In fact, Huawei stated on twitter “Feeling disappointed? We’ve got a real surprise exceeding anything you’ve ever seen.” mocking the iPhone X’s high price. That could be an indication of similar kind of product (iPhone X) at an affordable price.
