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

Just don't expect to find any of Huawei's phones in the top 10 most popular devices. It's going to feature Huawei's latest 970 SoC and will likely feature 6GB of RAM and probably 64GB in storage. Huawei Kirin 970 is said to be only made available for Mate 10. To see is to believe, and we will definitely see when the Huawei Mate 10 is unveiled 16 October. 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.

Earlier this year, Huawei boasted that the Mate 10 will put a lot of pressure on the high-end smartphone market and will have a "full-screen display", longer battery life, quicker charging speed and better photographing capability, at least when compared to the Apple iPhone.

On the back we see vertically placed dual cameras along with a dual tone flash.

It's being speculated by Android Authority that the Huawei Mate 10 might arrive with the taller 18:9 aspect ratio with a screen resolution of 2,160 x 1,080. The dual lens camera will be present as usual and there will still be the 3.5mm audio jack as part of the standard specs. Apple is set to reveal the iPhone 8 on September 12, U.S. time, which tells observers: Huawei's time at second spot may be done sooner rather than later.

Xiaomi Mi Mix 2 has officially entered mass production
With the recent news arrived via Weibo , Xiaomi Mi Mix 2 has been teased with a full-screen display of 2.0. The leaked specifications further reveal that Xiaomi Mi 7 will come in two variants - 6GB RAM and 8GB RAM.

What makes Huawei's move even more significant is that it does not have a "hero phone" that it relies on significantly in the way that Apple does its iPhone 7 and Samsung it Galaxy S8. The Mate 10 will launch in time to take on the Galaxy Note 8, iPhone 8 and other and Huawei seems to have positioned the device well enough to take on its competitors.

Counterpoint Research's recent data report shows that Huawei has already overtaken Apple as the second-largest smartphone manufacturer in the world.

Huawei's chief executive of consumer business, Richard Yu, on Saturday revealed a powerful new mobile phone chip Huawei is betting on for its upcoming flagship smartphone Mate 10 and other high-end phones.
