Huawei has already confirmed that the Mate 10 series of smartphones will be made official on October 16. So far, we know the standard Mate 10 is internally codenamed as Marcel, while the Pro variant is Blanc. Now, thanks to new information leaked by @evleaks, we can tell you that there's another model in the series that carries the code-name Alps.
Specs for Blanc and Alps have leaked as well. Starting with the former, it's powered by the recently-unveiled Kirin 970 SoC, and sports a 5.99-inch display with 1,440 x 2,880 pixel resolution. RAM is 6GB, while internal memory options include 64GB and 128GB.
The model features a dual rear-camera set-up (12MP+20MP) co-developed with Leica, and an 8MP front shooter. It is 7.5-mm thick, packs in a 4,000mAh battery, and run Android 8.0 Oreo out of the box. Some other features it offers include IP68 water and dust certification and an LTE Cat. 16 modem.
Coming to Alps, it's also powered by the same SoC, but sports a 5.88-inch (2,560 x 1,440 pixel) display. Unlike Blanc's 18:9, Alps offers an aspect ratio of 16:9, indicating the device might be a Lite variant.
Some of the other changes (when compared to Blanc) include 4GB RAM, no 128GB storage option, 8.23mm thickness, and LTE Cat. 12 modem.
Looking at the specs and the design in the leaks, this may be the very best android phone to buy out there given that the Camera is better or as good as the Galaxy Note 8. I love the Note series, but the Mate 10 appeals to me quite a bit!
Right. Some people hate big phones like these. But the mate 10 is a dream come true for people like me who love big phones
No such thing: what's best for one person may be useless to another (too big, too small, lacks support for something that person considers essential, whatever).
