MWC 2017: Huawei launches the flamboyant ‘P10’ and ‘P10 Plus’

Huawei has finally made the P10 and P10 Plus official. Both devices are a beast when it comes to specsheet, but if you wanted a Snapdragon 835 processor powered device, you are simply looking at a wrong place because Huawei has loaded them with its own processor, but yes, the best one that impressed us well on Mate 9.

Huawei seems to have created a clique of sorts with its devices. The mere design of the Huawei P10 and P10 Plus screams passion. Coupled with its camera modules backed by the famous lens developers Leica themselves, the devices flaunt of a unique and engrossing experience to everyone and anyone who lays their eyes on the device.

Huawei seems to be on a roll as both the P9 and Mate 9 were received well by the public and critics together. The official launch and the unboxing itself are unique in their own way. The P10 has a rather interesting set of specs which are mentioned below:


  • Octa-core Kirin 960 processor (Four cores clocked at 2.4GHz, while other four at 1.8GHz)
  • Display:
    • P10: 5.1-inch, 1920 x 1080 pixels
    • P10 Plus: 5.5-inch, 2560 x 1440 pixels
  • Camera (Leica Dual Camera):
    • 20MP B&W Sensor and 16MP Colour Sensor
    • P10: Version 2.0 (28mm equiv. f/2.2 Summarit lenses)
    • P10 Plus: Version 2.0 Pro (28mm equiv. f/1.8 Summilux lenses)
  • Front-positioned fingerprint scanner embedded under glass
  • RAM and storage:
    • P10: 4GB RAM and 64GB storage
    • P10 Plus: 6GB RAM and 128GB storage
  • Hybrid Dual-Sim
  • Battery:
    • P10: 3200mAh
    • P10 Plus: 3750mAh
  • Android 7.1 Nougat OS, topped with Huawei custom skin, EMUI 5.1
  • 4×4 MIMO connectivity (P10 Plus)
  • IR Blaster (P10 Plus)

Colors: Greenery, Dazzling Blue, Dazzling Gold, Graphite Black, Rose Gold, White Ceramic, Mystic Silver and Prestige Gold.

While the P10 and P10 Plus are in no way weak devices, the emphasis Huawei seems to lay on its camera makes it pretty clear where their priorities lie.

The P10 and P10 Plus also show no signs of a US-entry which in itself is a disappointing prospect. They might bring the device to US like they did with the Mate 9 but if the same amount of delay is presented, the device and its popularity are likely to take a hit.
