Huawei, in an event held yesterday, announced the most awaited Mate 10 series of flagship phones which include Huawei Mate 10, Huawei Mate 10 Pro and the extravagant Porsche Edition Mate 10. The new phones have some exciting new hardware and a compelling design. The exterior relies mostly on glass with a curved back to make it easier to hold and use. Further, the main attractions are the upgraded dual lens camera present on both Mate 10 and Mate 10 Pro. The key difference for users between the two phones would be the displays. The Mate 10 Pro ships with a 18:9 AMOLED display whereas the Mate 10 follows traditional 16:9 IPS LCD panel. Read ahead to find more details about the new Huawei Mate Series right below.
