Sooner or later, the new Huawei models, the flags of Mate 10 and Mate 10 Pro are completely disassembled to observe their interiors, which actually have several similarities, and this does not surprise anyone.

The simple Mate 10 seems to have a flexible adhesive membrane on its back that offers a constant level of water resistance on the phone, but it has been rated IP54. There seems to be a special rubber layer on the perimeter of the USB-C port, and it also seems to cover the slot of the SIM card. These same protections also exist in Mate 10 Pro, so it’s not entirely clear how the premium version is rated IP67.
In addition, there is a 4000 mAh battery in the two new devices, a dual camera Leica card and a selfie camera. All this is connected to the bottom card and all the cables are on the battery, so when you remove the back cover for a possible device, you must be very careful in your movements.
You can see a very obvious difference between the two models, in the normal Mate 10, the small flex cable of the fingerprint reader goes over the battery to reach the bottom to snap, while the Pro model wraps around to reach the rear frame.
The rear panel and the battery are very well glued, but the rest seems easy enough to remove and repair. But where is this additional shielding protection in Mate 10, we were unable to understand these two disassemblies.
