Mobile World Congress 2017 is just around the corner and the companies have started teasing what to expect. Joining the list is Huawei, by teasing its upcoming flagship smartphone — Huawei P10.
Huawei has confirmed that the company will be launching its new flagship smartphone under its P-series of devices, dubbed as Huawei P10. It has also revealed the launch date – 26th February 2017.
There is not much information about the actual device itself in the teaser. The teaser only says “Change the way the world sees you”, along with a double eye motif that guarantees that the smartphone will include a dual-camera setup, similar to that found on P9. The video teaser has been titled as “#HuaweiP10 is coming!”.
As per the rumors, it will have two variants: the P10 and the P10 Plus. Both will sport 5.5-inch QHD screen. However, the Plus version will have curved sides like the Galaxy Edge. It will apparently be equipped with a better chipset, as well, along with 4 to 6GB of RAM and 32 to 128GB of storage.
Under the hood, the phone is said to be powered by Huawei’s Kirin 960 chipset. There will be a 20MP and 12MP camera at back, and as teased, with a dual camera setup. On the software front, it will be running the latest Android version — Android 7.0 Nougat.
The phone is also tipped to support wireless charging, sport a dual curved screen, and pack a fingerprint sensor embedded in the physical Home button. On the other hand, its bigger variant — P10 Plus, is expected to pack up to 8GB of RAM.
Some reports suggests that the pricing for the handset could be around €799, or about $850, at launch, making it one of the most expensive handsets Huawei has ever produced.
We will know the complete specifications and features of the phone, as well as its final pricing and availability details once the company unveils the phone on stage at MWC in Barcelona on 26th February.
