If the latest reports are to be believed, the new Huawei Mate 10 Pro will only have FHD or Full HD resolution. This means that the users who wish to buy the Mate 10 Pro will have to limit themselves to a 1080p resolution. Also notable is the fact that this indicates that the display is watered down compared to the QHD display which the immediate predecessor, the Huawei Mate 9, had. Why this is on the cards is not known at the moment.
Some recently discovered User Agent Profiles, or UAProfs, for the Huawei Mate 10 series have confirmed the fact. Take for example these two profiles, here and here. These have shed some light on what the display segment of the new devices may possibly be. We have already informed you that the Mate 10 and the Mate 10 Pro are coming on the 16th of this month.
Also, we were one of the first publications to have informed you that the Huawei Mate 10 series was likely to have a Pro variant. This means that Huawei is banking a lot on the Mate 10 series and clearly believes that it is of great importance. Therefore, why the downgrade has taken place is no longer clear. There is one possibility: Huawei might just change the configurations prior to the shipping of the devices globally. This will make the customers more than happy.
Also, the other possibility lies in the fact that the Huawei Mate 10 may not be projected as the flagship model. Instead, the Mate 10 Pro variant may be presented as the flagship model, in which case the FHD display of the Mate 10 is warranted. We expect that the devices will be powered by the new and highly powerful HiSilicon Kirin 970 processors. This will make these devices among the fastest in the international community currently. Let us see what October 16 has in store for us.
