Last month we saw a few images of Huawei’s upcoming Mate 10 flagship leak. And now, the beefier Pro version of the device has surfaced as well. Images that show off the front and back of the Huawei Mate 10 Pro have been posted by @evleaks.

On the front of the device is a 5.99-inch 2880×1440 display with and 18:9 aspect ratio and super slim side bezels, which should help to make the big screen a bit easier to hold. Around on the back of the phone there’s a dual rear camera setup with Leica branding.
There’s a small design touch to help those cameras stand out, too, in the form of a strip that’s a bit lighter in color than the rest of the Mate 10 Pro’s backside. Those dual rear cameras are said to be of the 12-megapixel and 20-megapixel variety, complete with an f/1.6 aperture and optical image stabilization.
The camera on the front of the phone is reportedly an 8-megapixel sensor. Inside the Mate 10 Pro’s body, which is said to feature IP68 water and dust resistance, is a Kirin 970 processor and 6GB of RAM. Battery size is rumoured to be coming in at 4,000mAh, and it’s said that there will be variants with 64GB and 128GB of storage.
Rounding out the Mate 10 Pro’s feature set is Android 8.0 running below EMUI 6.0. Huawei is hosting an event on October 16 and the Mate 10 will be shown off there, so it’s possible that we’ll see the Mate 10 Pro at the event, too. Based on the leaked images and specs, the Mate 10 Pro looks like it could live up to its “Pro” moniker.
There’s some minor differences between the Pro and the Lite versions. It looks as though the Pro will come in three slightly different colours (dark blue, black and brown), and features a wide, lighter band across the top of the phone.
Reports also suggest that Huawei’s new Mate 10 will also come with a feature similar to Samsung’s DeX. The phone is rumoured to be compatible with existing docks, some of which might be more portable than others. This could ultimately make the Huawei Mate 10 desktop feature more accepted by users.

The system will supposedly use DisplayPort, which might not be as common as HDMI. But an adapter for that is so much easier to get and bring along than an ultimately non-portable DeX Station.
Huawei is also betting a lot on the AI aspect of the device. Recently, the company released a short promo for the phone, claiming that it is an “intelligent machine.” We’ll find out on October 16th when Huawei is expected to unveil the new phones.
