Huawei has managed to ship more than 100 million smartphones in the first three quarters of 2017. Combined with the slowdown in iPhone sales, the company has managed to surpass Apple as the world’s second largest smartphone maker in the world for a while.
Huawei, the world’s second-largest smartphone maker, today unveiled the Mate 10 and Mate 10 Pro — its flagship handsets for the international market. While Huawei has met with huge success in China, the company has also managed to create a reputation for itself in the European smartphone market.
Honor today unveiled its latest mid-range handset featuring an 18:9 bezel-less display, the Honor 7X. Successor to the Honor 6X from last year, the 7X features a 5.93-inch FHD+ (2160 x 1080) display with thin top and bottom bezels.
In just over two weeks from now, Huawei would be unveiling its much-anticipated flagship, the Mate 10 and Mate 10 Pro, in Munich. Ruining the company’s surprise is prolific leaker @evleaks who has posted an official press render of the Mate 10 Pro.
