Huawei may not be the biggest name in the West, but it recently surpassed Apple as the worldâ€™s second biggest smartphone manufacturer. Now itâ€™s announcing two new flagships, the Mate 10 and Mate 10 Pro, its first real entry into the bezel-less design trend thatâ€™s made 2017 a wonderful year for smartphone design.
I had the chance to go hands on with the devices at a small preview event in New York, and thereâ€™s a lot to like about both models. Which brings me to an interesting point: the Mate 10 and 10 Pro arenâ€™t your usual pairing of spec configurations. In some ways, it seems they donâ€™t belong in the same series.
