It’s official, Huawei has announced the successor to the Huawei p9, the Huawei p10, which is Huawei’s latest flagship.
The smartphone was announced during Huawei’s MWC 2017 press conference with two size options.
There’s the normal 5.1- inch version with a 1080p display and the 5.5-inch P10 Plus which has a WQHD display. Both feature Huawei’s own Kirin 960 processor, but the larger has more storage and ram with 6GB of RAM and up to 128GB of storage and the smaller version has 4GB of RAM plus up to 64GB of storage.
Both also have microSD card expandability.
To top all that off, the P10 Plus has a 3.750mAh battery while the P10 has a 3.200mAh battery.
Huawei’s Leica branded dual camera system also makes a return in both smartphones, the P10 Plus has a f/1.8 aperture while the normal P10 has a f/2.2 aperture. Both come with a 20-megapixel monochrome sensor and a 12-megapixel colour sensor, these also come with a new portrait shooting mode.
The fingerprint reader has also been moved from the back to the front with the new Home button, which works in a similar way to the iPhone, in that it doesn’t press in. It also allows you to swipe and tap it for more controls, one tap is back, a long press takes you home, and a swipe will show your recent apps.
For the software, Huawei designed a number of themes that match the eight exterior colours of the P10 and P10 Plus, with new machine learning implementation which will be used to accelerate apps by compressing the apps that you don’t use often. They also say apps will open 20 percent faster.
Huawei will ship the P10 and the P10 Plus in March Europe, Malaysia, Mexico, Australia, New Zealand, and more countries. It will be priced at 649 Euros for the P10 model or 699 Euros for the P10 Plus.
