Huawei Mate 10 Pro to have bezel-less screen, Mate 10 sticking with traditional design

Vlad, 22 August 2017

Huawei is unveiling the Mate 10 at an event in Munich on October 16, and the Chinese company has already outed the first video teaser for the upcoming device. We've heard a few things about it so far - for example, that it will be powered by the yet-unannounced Kirin 970 chipset, and that it would sport an EntireView Display (read: near-bezelless).

The latter isn't looking so sure anymore, despite the company's CEO practically confirming it already. A new rumor out of China today claims that only the Huawei Mate 10 Pro will be adorned with such a bezel-killing panel, while the vanilla Mate 10 will go with a more traditional screen setup, something close to its predecessor, the Mate 9.

Such a move wouldn't be very shocking considering that there was a Mate 9 Pro released last year alongside the Mate 9. Anyway, the source goes on to say that the Mate 10 Pro will have its fingerprint sensor on the back (which makes sense as it probably wouldn't have enough room on the tiny front bezel), while the Mate 10 will employ it below the display, emulating a design trend that was also seen in the P10 line from earlier this year. Finally, we're told to expect a gold version of the Mate 10 series phones.

Me too. 18:9 is a bad idea. 16:9 should be maintained as long as our TV's (FHD, 4K, etc) are still 16:9.
