Huawei has surpassed Apple as the world's second largest smartphone brand

As per these leaked render images, the Huawei Mate 10 comes out with quite an impressive form factor.

Huawei expects to corner 20-25 per cent share in smartphones priced between Rs 28,000 and Rs 35,000 sold online during 2017.

According to some rumors in the industry, Huawei Mate 10 will be having regular version and pro-version.

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. People may not believe in paying premium for Huawei brand yet, but it's Mate series has been praised for its spectacular performance. What's not clear about the renders is whether the front-mounted fingerprint sensor will also double as a physical home button or will simply be for scanning fingerprints. In fact, Huawei has no phones in the top 10, something which could hurt it in the long run. If this is true, then the Mate 10's display will actually be also taller.

He did, however, say that Huawei's reliance on its Chinese market hampers its ability to surpass Samsung in the near term.

On the back, the Huawei Mate 10 sports a dual-camera setup. There will be a slight camera bump due to the 9 mm thickness of the optics.

But that does not downplay the significance of the achievement and shows the growth of Chinese companies in the eyes of consumers.

The Kirin 970 SoC is based on 10nm manufacturing process and features four 2.4GHz Cortex-A73 cores and four 1.8GHz Cortex-A53 cores, backed by a 12-core Mali-G72MP12 GPU. Other specs may likely include a 64GB onboard storage, 6GB RAM, and a Kirin 970 chipset. The edge to edge design of the Huawei Mate 10 was teased by the CEO Richard Yu in the past. Now, it looks like Huawei efforts have paid off.

Chinese leading smartphone maker Huawei has overtaken Apple in global smartphone sales since June to become the world's second-largest smartphone brand, next only to Samsung, according to the latest report by consulting firm Counterpoint Research.
