Huawei has demonstrated to be more than capable of being at the same level as the most important handset makers on the market: the Huawei P9 and the Mate 9 proved to be very reliable devices. These two models have been considered by many as two of the best devices from last year. It seems that Huawei plans to follow the same path as in 2016 and recently we have heard rumours of a new pair of handsets: the new Huawei P10 and the P10 Plus. Along with the regular P10 version, we would also have an improved version under the name of Huawei P10 Plus.
Every whisper points to Huawei unveiling its new P10 and P10 Plus during the Mobile World Congress, which will take place at the end of February on Barcelona, Spain. The device looks a lot like the current Huawei Mate 9, and since it had such a great design, we couldn’t wish for anything else. Some leaked renders show now that the Huawei P10 Plus may have an iris scanner on the front, similar to the one found on the Galaxy Note 7.
There will be two variants of each model
Unlike the standard Huawei P10, the P10 Plus may come without a physical Home button, so we expect that the fingerprint scanner is located on the back of the device. Rumour has it that, as the Huawei Mate 9, the device comes with a 5.5 inch display. It seems that the Huawei P10 Plus will work with a HiSilicon Kirin 965 chipset, which is an improved version of the Kirin 960 processor according to its manufacturers. We will also have two options for P10 Plus, depending on storage options: a 128GB of storing space with 6GB of RAM and a more flexible 256GB with 8GB of RAM. Both versions will include the option to use a microSD card to improve our storage.
On the other hand, the P10 will come these two versions: a 4GB RAM with 64GB of space, and another 6GB RAM with 128GB of space. The battery of the P10 Plus will be fix and have 3650 mAh, while the P10 will have a somewhat less powerful one (3100 mAh). Both smartphones are expected to come equipped with dual Leica optics for their main cameras. The pricetag rumoured for them: 700 dollars, although there is no official announcement at the moment. The Mobile World Congress starts on February 27, so at least the wait to find out more will be short.
