The current Mate series, that was launched last year has four smartphones under its banner: Mate 9, Mate 9 Pro, Mate 9 Porsche Design Edition, and Mate 9 Lite. The successor to the Mate series will launch next month, however, it’s not sure yet whether Mate 10 will come in four variants or just 2 variants (Mate 10, Mate 10 Pro) as rumored till now.
According to the popular tipster Evan Blass, Huawei Mate 10 Pro is code-named Blanc and Huawei Mate 10 is codenamed Marcel. However, today, another report from Evan Blass suggests that there is a different device with code name Alps. Alps could perhaps be Mate 10 Lite going by its specification, which we are going to read below.
According to the latest news report, Mate 10 Pro or Blanc will feature 5.99-inch IPS LCD display with 18:9 aspect ratio and 1,440 x 2,880 resolution.
