At MWC 2017,Barcelona, Huawei unveiled its two new top smartphones, the P10 and P10 Plus, featuring an improved design, display, chipset and, of course, the dual camera setup on the back, developed alongside Leica.
Let’s focus on both phones a bit, starting with the Huawei P10, which comes with a 5.1″ IPS display, rocking a full HD resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels, covered by 2.5D curved Gorilla Glass 5.
On the back, it has an all-metal back-place, with a hyper-diamond cut and a sandblasted finish and antenna bands, similar to the ones seen on the iPhone 7.
Under the hood, the smartphone has the Kirin 960 chip, previously seen at the Mate 9, alongside 4GB of RAM and various storage options. As for the battery, the Huawei P10 has a 3200mAh power pack, supporting the Supercharger technology. And this configuration is more than enough to run Android 7.0 Nougat, customized with the manufacturer’s new Emotion UI 5.1, flawlessly.
Moving on to the camera department, it has a dual Leica setup on the back, with a 12MP color sensor and a 20MP monochrome one, both featuring f/2.2 lens, while the color sensor is also featuring optical image stabilization. As for the front-facing camera, it’s also Leica-powered, relying on an 8MP snapper, with an f/1.9 aperture.
Next, Huawei P10 Plus, a smartphone with a 5.5-inch IPS display and a QHD resolution of 2560 x 1440, keeping pretty much the same design as its ‘little brother’, the P10.
Under the hood, the configuration is also similar, being powered by the Kirin 960 chip, alongside 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage, or, if you prefer a bit of extra power, 6GB and 128 gigs of space. The battery is bigger, though, with a capacity of 3,750mAh, supporting Huawei’s Supercharge technology. And it also comes with Android 7.0 Nougat on board, with EMUI 5.1 on top.
Things remain unchanged in the camera department as well, with the same Leica-powered dual setup, with a 12MP RGB sensor and a 20MP monochrome one, as well as laser autofocus, a two-tone LED flash and 4K video recording capabilities.
However, the Huawei P10 Plus has a unique feature, being able to support 4.5G, thanks to the 4 LTE antennas on the back.
Huawei’s flagships will be available in Greenery, Dazzling Blue, Rose Gold, Ceramic White, Graphite Black, Mystic Silver, and Prestige Gold, this March. The regular P10 will have a starting price of €649, while the P10 Plus will cost €699, for the 64GB version, or €799, for the 128Gb one.
