At the back, for better grip, the smartphone features a combination of 3D curved glass and metal finish, and the sides gently curve towards the edges. Huawei also compared the Mate 10 duo with the new Apple iPhone 8 Plus, stressing on the similar size the three offer, yet the larger display the Mate 10 Pro and Mate 10 features in the same space.
