It hasn't been long since Huawei showcased its camera-centric smartphones - the Huawei P9 and Huawei P9 Plus. While the Huawei P9 made its way to India, we could never get hold of its bigger sibling since it was never made available in the country.
Now, it appears as if the company is already prepping up to launch the successors of both these smartphones - the Huawei P10 and Huawei P10 Plus.
A couple of days ago, the prototype images of the P10 surfaced online showing a design awfully similar to its predecessor. However, there were a few subtle changes as well.
Let's us take a closer look at how the P10 will be different from its predecessor and what to expect from the device.
Similar design but with a few subtle changes
The images of the Huawei P10 surfaced online a couple of times. While the first ones pointed at a fingerprint sensor located at the front of the device (unlike the Huawei P9) the other render revealed that the fingerprint sensor will be placed at the back itself but it will be more rounded.
Bump in display resolution
According to the GFXBench listing, the device will be sporting a 5.5-inch Quad HD Display as opposed to the 5.2-inch Full HD display on the P9. At this point of time, it's unclear if the leak refers to the standard variant or the ‘Plus' variant, though.
Dual camera setup with the Leica branding is here to stay
Akin to the P9, the Huawei P10 will also sport a Leica branded dual camera setup at the back. Considering the fact that the Mate 9 sports 20MP +12MP sensor, it is safe to assume the same setup will be seen on the P10 as well. Additionally one can expect OIS (optical image stabilisation) this time. As far as the front camera is concerned, the 8MP selfie shooter is here to stay.
Powered by Kirin 960 chipset along with 6GB of RAM
In terms of hardware, the P10 is expected to come with the in-house 2.3GHz octa-core Kirin 960 chipset coupled with 6GB of RAM - which is double the amount of RAM as seen on its predecessor. It is also expected to offer a 256GB storage variant.
As far as the software is concerned, the smartphone will run Android 7.0 Nougat out-of-the-box with the company's EMUI skin over the top.
Battery, pricing, and availability
There's no rumour on the battery capacity of the device but considering the bump in display resolution, it's highly likely that the battery capacity will increase.
The Huawei P10 rumours are still in their initial stages and nothing about the pricing or the availability are revealed as of now.
