Another noticeable design change pertains to how the fingerprint reader is now up front just below the display. Also, according to Huawei CEO Richard Yu, the Mate 10 will ensure a longer battery life. It is worth noting that this is the regular Huawei Mate 10 smartphone and not the Mate 10 Pro - which might be a little different when it comes to the form factor.
As you can see from the renders, the display runs edge-to-edge, however, the top, as well as the bottom bezels, remain the same. The edges are also well rounded and this time around, there isn't going to be a rear fingerprint sensor but a front fingerprint sensor embedded in the home button.
What we do know for sure about the dual cameras is that it will be co-engineered by German camera maker Leica. The 5.9-inch screen will be the same size as the Mate 9, although the overall device is a hair narrower, indicating slimmer bezels.
Huawei's presentation at the IFA 2017 also confirmed an earlier rumored unveiling event schedule for the Huawei Mate 10 Series.
