Huawei Launches the New Huawei P10 and P10+ At MWC 2017
At MWC 2017, Huawei has launched the Huawei P10 and P10+. These new devices pick up the mantle from the Huawei P9 with updated specifications and yet-more focus on camera performance.
The Huawei P10 comes with a 5.1″ FHD display, while the Huawei P10+ comes with a 5.5″ QHD display. Inside, the Huawei P10 and P10+ come with Huawei’s own Kirin 960 processor. The differences continue on with RAM and storage with the P10 getting 4GB of memory and 64GB of internal storage, while the P10+ gets 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. There is microSD expansion (hybrid SIM slot) available on both the models, so you won’t be left starving for storage.
The difference in size also means different size batteries. The Huawei P10 has a 3,200mAh battery, while the Huawei P10+ has a 3,750mAh battery. The phones also come with Huawei’s EMUI 5.1 on top of Android 7.0 Nougat. The fingerprint sensor is on the front of the device in the form of a capacitive button, which also doubles up as the primary means of navigation on the device.
Huawei spent a lot of time on stage talking about the camera setup on the new P10 and P10+. The Leica-branded dual-camera setup continues on the rear, and as a bonus, the front is also Leica-branded this time around. The rear setup comprises of a 20MP monochrome shooter and a 12MP color sensor, along with OIS and PDAF. The aperture on the rear camera on the P10 is f/2.2, while the P10+ gets wider f/1.8 aperture. The front camera is a 8MP shooter with f/1.9 aperture.
Huawei is differentiating its product in the market with the help of new colors and a new back finish. Called the “Hyper Diamond Cut”, this back texture is present on the Dazzling Blue and Dazzling Gold color offering more ridges on the back. Huawei also worked with Pantone on the coloring of the Dazzling Blue, as well as the new Greenery shade. There are conventional colors available too, in case these did not suit your taste.
