Huawei’s most anticipated smartphone Mate 10 Pro is again in the light. Rumors mil for Mate 10 series has been in full sway. This time we have got some images of Mate 10 pro’s screen protectors from some unknown sources. However, the authenticity of these images isn’t egregious, but, still, these images are pretty much identical to the previously leaked images.
According to these images, the device seems to have 18:9 ratio display with minimal bezels, as rumored earlier. At the bottom, a hole is reserved either for fingerprint or Huawei logo; recently leaked images suggests that it would be a place for the logo. If we move on to the top, we can easily see some cut-outs left for the likely earpiece and other sensors related stuff.
Moreover, lately, the company indeed official tweeted on Twitter and posted a video on Facebook by mocking up Apple’s Face ID. So, we can easily assume that the Facial Recognition technology will be there, at least on pro variant. The company is actually pointing out some surprising features, for those we have to wait till the official launch.
Let's face it, facial recognition isn't for everyone.Unlock the future with #TheRealAIPhone. 16.10.2017
