After the Blackberry and LG, now is the time for Huawei. Huawei has unveiled Leica powered P10 and P10 Plus devices at MWC 2017 in Barcelona. This is Huawei’s second high end device after Huawei Mate 9 which was launched at CES 2017.

Well, talking about the P10, it features a LEICA dual camera modules design, except that the two modules are not identical this time: the monochrome sensor is 20 Megapixel while the RGB sensor is 12 Megapixel. It consists of a F1.9 SUMMILUX-H lens also.

The P10 Plus gets a brighter lens with F1.8 aperture, and the P10 lens features a F2.2 aperture. There’s a 8 MP Camera for both the devices on the front size.Both the P10 and P10 Plus packs EMUI 5.1 which is based on Android 7.0 Nougat. These devices are powered by Kirin 960 octa-core processor with 4 GB of RAM.

Huawei P10 packs 3200 mAh battery and P10 Packs 3700 mAh battery with super charging facility. The P10 Plus supports 4G LTE 4×4 MIMO, which can deliver up to a 600 mbps download speed. The P10 gets a regular 4G LTE modem. It comes with 2 antenna which will double your download speed (less signal still fast speed).

Huawei will, however, sell a version of the P10 Plus with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of memory too.

The phone is available in lots of colors like Dazzling Blue, Greenery, Rose Gold Prestige Gold, Dazzling Gold, Black, and may be another color, probably Silver. The Huawei P10 is priced at €649 and the first markets to get it are Australia, Austria, Chile, China, Columbia, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Italy, Malaysia, Mexico, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Peru, Philippines, Poland, Russia, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, South Africa, Spain, Sweden, Thailand, Turkey, UAE, United Kingdom, Vietnam.

  • Size
    5.1 inch
  • Resolution
    1,920 x 1,080
  • Display Colors Display Colors is refers to the number of different shades of colors that the screen is capable of displaying => 64K colors, 256K colors and 16 million colors, Obviously 16M is highest available range of colors and better than others.
    16M
  • Pixel Density Pixel Density (PPI) is refers to the concentration of pixels on a particular display, measured in pixels per inch (ppi). Pixel density is calculated by dividing the diagonal pixel resolution of a display by its diagonal size, higher pixel density better display quality.
    432 ppi
  • Touch Screen
    Yes, Multitouch
  • Display Protection Display Protection => Gorilla Glass is a special alkali-aluminosilicate glass shield with exceptional damage resistance that helps protect mobile displays from scratches, drops, and bumps of everyday use, It is always better to go for a smartphone with Gorilla Glass for that added protection and peace of mind.
    Gorilla Glass 5

Hardware

  • Chipset Chipset is a group of integrated circuits designed to perform one or a more dedicated functions, often with real time computing constraints, Popular smartphones are equipped with more advanced embedded chipsets that can do many different tasks depending on their programming.
    Kirin 960 Processor
  • CPU CPU (Central Processing Unit) mostly known as processors, CPU processes instructions in order to carry out certain functions that make your device operate properly. Processors are often described as the brain of computers, smartphones and tablets, Smartphones and tablets rely on processors to carry out their every task, Processors are an incredibly important factor in selecting any type of computing device, including your smartphone.
    Octa-core, 2400 MHz, ARM Cortex-A73 and ARM
  • GPU GPU (Graphics Processing Unit) is a single-chip processor designed to rapidly manipulate and alter memory to accelerate the creation of images in a frame buffer intended for output to a display, This includes things such as lighting effects, object transformations, and 3D motion.
    Mali-G71 MP8
  • RAM (Memory) RAM (Random Access Memory) is a type of computer memory that can be accessed randomly, any byte of memory can be accessed without touching the preceding bytes that allows information to be stored and accessed quickly from random locations. RAM is the most common type of memory found in computer systems, smartphones, tablets and other electronic devices.
    4GB
  • Internal Storage Internal Storage is a data storage space (flash memory) mostly used in smartphones, tablets and other electronic devices where operating system, apps, music, photos, videos, files and other user data Is stored.
    64GB
  • Card Slot Memory Card Slot is a special slot for inserting a memory card. Memory cards allow you to expand the phone's built-in memory, A memory card (sometimes called a flash memory card or a storage card) is a small storage medium used to store data such as text, pictures, audio, and video, for use on small, portable or remote computing devices such as mobile phones, mp3 players, digital cameras.
    Yes, Upto 256GB via MicroSD

Software

  • Operating System OS => Every computer system run on a base software called Operating System (OS). Operating System controls all basic operations of the computer (such as smartphone, PDAs, tablet computers and other handheld devices). The Operating System allows the user to install and run third party applications (apps), apps are used to add new functionality to the device.
