Huawei has had a busy year with the launch of Huawei Honor V9, Honor 8 Lite and Nova Lite, P10 and P10 Plus and the Huawei Watch 2 to name a few. Each device aims to target a specific region or market, further implying that Huawei is strategically maintaining a close watch over the distribution and pricing of its products across the globe.
It seems that the Huawei P10 Plus and P10 Lite have graced the doors of the FCC and with the necessary clearance now having been provided, the release of the device in the U.S and Canada seems imminent.
While the model no. VKY-L29 seems to be the dual variant of the device, the VKY-L09 model is the single-sim standard for the P10 Plus. The 5.5″ Huawei P10 Plus is powered by an octa-core Kirin 960 processor and comes with 4GB of RAM. The phone packs 64GB of internal storage that can be expanded up to 256GB via a microSD card. The Huawei P10 Plus also flaunts a 20-megapixel primary camera on the rear and a 12-megapixel selfie shooter.
The Huawei P10 Lite, being the smaller sibling, packs a 5.2″ IPS screen and runs on the Kirin 655 chip complemented by its 4GB of RAM. It also has a 12MP f/2.2 main camera and an 8MP selfie snapper. The Lite variant also supports an expandable 32GB storage and a 3,000 mAh battery to power it.
With both devices cleared from the FCC, it is but a matter of time before they are available in the Western market with the US and Canada taking notable preference.
