Mysterious Huawei Y10 trademarked in Europe

With all its devices and the ones from its Honor sub-brand, Huawei is one of the most prolific smartphone manufacturers, besides being the second one in terms of sales in the last period. The Y series is known as the line-up with the most affordable Huawei devices, and now the Chinese company has trademarked a new device from this series in Europe. Its name is Huawei Y10 and the trademark has been filed at EUIPO (European Union Intellectual Property Office). This means that a new device may be making its way in the European smartphones market.

Judging from the model number, this could be the most powerful and expensive device from the Y line-up, but given that this is an entry-level series, we expect it to be a mid-ranger. However, this is in contrast with the latest reports suggesting that the company is planning the launch of a new gaming smartphone by the end of 2018. Someone is even thinking that Huawei Y10 is the upcoming foldable smartphone that, according to the company, will be launched in 2019. But there is to consider that a single trademark filed at EUIPO does not mean that a device called Huawei Y10 will be necessarily launched soon.

Alongside the Huawei Y10, the Chinese company has also trademarked other monikers: P66, P77, P88 and some mispronunciations of its brands such as Wawei, Honer, Huawey, Homor and more. At the moment, the closest device to the Y10 is Huawei Y9 (2018) and it has been announced back in March. It sports an all-metal design and a 5.93-inch display with a Full HD+ resolution of 1080 x 2160 pixels. On the hardware side, it has an octa-core Kirin 659 chipset alongside up to 4 GB of RAM and up to 128 GB of internal storage. It even has a dual camera (16 and 2 MP resolutions, f/2.2 aperture) and a big 4000 mAh battery.
