Another key issue for Counterpoint: Huawei lacks a real "hero" device or a definitive, instantly identifiable flagship device that could bring brand recognition. He also stated that smartphone users, who are continually looking for faster feature performance, compact design, and longer battery life, will have to look no further with the launch of the new Huawei handsets powered by the Kirin 970 processor.

So it is safe to say that the Honor V10 would be equipped with a Kirin 970 chipset. This debunks the rumors of the Huawei Mate 10 releasing with an under-display fingerprint scanner.

The Mate 10 will feature an edge-to-edge screen design, with larger bezels at the top and bottom, the renders reveal. The edges are also well rounded and this time around, there isn't going to be a rear fingerprint sensor but a front fingerprint sensor embedded in the home button. The latest info to come out regarding the Huawei Mate 10 is that of the renders of the device have leaked.

The display is set to measure in at 5.9 inches and the handset's chassis is expected to have an all glass back, which will likely give it a premium feel but also make it a fingerprint magnet.

What we do know for sure about the dual cameras is that it will be co-engineered by German camera maker Leica. And the Mate 10 will retain a 3.5mm audio jack, while charging and data transfer will be done through a USB Type-C port. Apart from this, Huawei will also be announcing a few other products also. Meanwhile, everyone is now keeping an eye out for Apple as it prepares to announce the iPhone 8 next week on September 12. The world's third leading smartphone manufacturer is confident that it will outperform competitors Samsung and Apple, Techjuice reported. Although that may be the case for now, Huawei's success over Apple is believed to be short-lived, according to Android Central.

Richard Yu, CEO of Huawei's consumer business group, said: "As we look to the future of smartphones, we're at the threshold of an exciting new era".
