Huawei Mate 10 Lite Smartphone Leaked

Huawei Mate 10 Lite

This is the 18:9, quad-camera Huawei Mate 10 Lite

Another Huawei Mate 10 variant will be the Huawei Mate 10 Lite, and with this one, the Leica camera will not be available. Currently, the Huawei company is expected to unveil the three variant smartphones such as Mate 10, Mate 10 Pro and Mate 10 Lite. The surprising thing about the phone is that it will come with a quad-camera (dual front & dual back).

Both rear and front camera setups pair a high-resolution sensor (16- and 13-megapixels, respectively) with a secondary two-megapixel module each. The front camera will be able to get a two-person "bokeh effect". This is somewhat similar to the software solution that Apple uses for the iPhone 7 Plus' Portrait mode or what Samsung's doing for the Galaxy Note 8's Live Focus Mode.

While both variants are expected to feature "EntireView" displays with 18:9 aspect ratio, the screen size for only the regular variant has been tipped till now. "What's more exciting is that the features will be more dramatic with a 5.9" screen 2160x1080 display in a 2:1 aspect ratio, enabling it to have an 83% screen-to-body ratio. The front panel live images, shared by @medicalman1987, again suggest the same design as the CAD render video and the aforementioned render for the Mate 10 but the Pro variant can be seen sporting even thinner bezels at the bottom half of the display. What's interesting here is that the screen resolution on this device is actually higher than the regular Mate 10, which is believed to be 1080p Full HD.

Coming to the pricing, the Mate 10 smartphone has been tipped to be launched in three configurations - 4GB RAM/64GB storage, 6GB RAM/128GB storage, and 6GB RAM/256GB storage. Based on a report from GSMArena, this will be at its cheapest price of $650 compared to its other Huawei Mate 10 relatives. Huawei's first FullView-equipped model, 10 Lite will be powered by a 2.36GHz Kirin 659 chipset paired with 4GB of RAM.

The Mate 10 Lite is slated for the same October 16 launch as the Mate 10, so we'll soon see if the leaked details are correct or if Huawei has something else up its sleeve. The Mate 10 Lite is expected to start shipping a month after and it will sell for €379 in Europe or around US$455 in the U.S.

Lastly, Huawei Mate 10 will have a variant called Marcel, with a touch of class as it comes with a Porsche design.
