Following an image teaser released last week, today Huawei has upped the game and outed the first video teaser for its upcoming flagship phablet. We’re talking about the Mate 10, of course, which the Chinese company refers to as “the device worth waiting for” in its teasers.
While it stops short of naming it, the video does tell us it’s part of the Mate series. What could it be?
The Mate 10 will have a dual rear camera setup just like its predecessor, and it will bear the Leica name – unsurprisingly given Huawei’s long-running partnership with the brand. A peek at the few seconds during which the camera area is actually shown in the video reveals the fact that the Mate 10’s setup will consist of a 12 MP color sensor and a 20 MP monochrome one, which incidentally is exactly what Huawei has used for both the Mate 9 and the P10. While the resolution of both sensors remains unchanged, other enhancements are likely.
The phablet will employ an “EntireView” display, possibly a 6″ panel with 18:9 aspect ratio and 2,160×1,080 resolution. The Mate 10 will be powered by the upcoming Kirin 970 chipset. It will be made official at an event in Munich on October 16.
