China’s Huawei brought, as promised, the new flagships a day before the official start of MWC 2017, in Barcelona. The new P10 and P10 Plus pack some interesting specs, showing that Huawei aims to become a real competitor to Samsung and Apple in the high end segment, both in technology and prices.
Although is the less equipped of the two smartphone introduced by Huawei, the P10 is a well built smartphone. It got a 5.1″ Full HD display, the most powerful processors for Huawei, the newly introduced octa-core Kirin 960, 4 GB RAM and 64 GB internal storage.
The camera set is very interesting. P10 has a dual main camera with sensors of 20 MP and 12 MP, while the selfie snapper has an 8 MP sensor. All cameras ar developed with Leica technologies so they should bring better quality to pictures captured from both sides of the phone. The selfie fans should be very thrilled to find that the new camera comes with real time applied filters in the new Portrait Mode, allowing them to take the best pictures of themselves.
P10 received a 3200 mAh battery and SuperCharge technology developed by Huawei and will be available in Greenery, Dazzling Blue, Rose Gold, Ceramic White, Graphite Black, Mystic Silver, and Prestige Gold. The recommended price was set at $640.
Huawei P10 Plus
The more powerful of the two, Huawei P10 Plus got a 5.5 Quad HD display, same processors as its little brother, 4GB RAM and 64GB internal storage as minimum. P10 Plus will also come in a 6GB RAM and 128 GB internal storage variant.
As on the standard version, the camera set is the same. As expected, P10 Plus received a bigger battery (3750 mAh) the same SuperCharge technology and it’ll run on Android 7.0 Nougat, with EMUI 5.1 interface. P10 has the same software.
Huawei chose to get P10 Plus “painted” in Ceramic White, Dazzling Blue, Dazzling Gold, Graphite Black, Mystic Silver, Rose Gold and Greenery. The price for the 4GB RAM/64GB ROM has a price of $700, while the 6GB RAM/128GB ROM, will be sold for $800. So as you can see the new flagships are not at all cheap. Still they are cheaper than the yet to be released Galaxy S8 and iPhone X/iPhone 8, which will have prices to go over $1.000.
