Huawei’s flagship phones P10 and P10 Plus are likely to be released in Canada in June this year. Here’s an overview of key features of the two smartphones:
The P10 has a 5.1-inch screen and the P10 Plus a 5.5 inch. The best part of both the phones, as far as display is concerned, is their eight color-on-metal finish options. The camera plate at the back is laid out across the width of the frame and has much more fluidity to it.
The fingerprint scanner on both phones are placed on the front, in the home key position. This is a major new shift from Huawei, who have until now opted for rear-placed fingerprint scanner. There are no on-screen softkeys by default. You can activate back, home, and apps key through the settings menu.
Earlier there was a rumor that Huawei will give a curved screen to the P10 and P10 Plus, however, that’s not the case. Both features flat LCD panels.
With the P10, you’ll get full HD resolution over the 5.1-inch panel. The phone has 1,920 x 1,080 HD resolution and delivers 432 pixels an inch. You get 534 pixels per inch with the P10 Plus, which has a WQHD resolution of 2,560 x 1,400.
The P10 and P10 Plus decided to go with a Leica camera. The camera plate on the rear is neatly designed and features two lenses (28mm equivalent) side by side. The dual-camera layout will feature one monochrome sensor (Huawei will upgrade it to 20 megapixels) and one color sensor (this will be 12 megapixel).
Thanks to a higher megapixel monochrome sensor, the camera will be able to capture far greater light and more detail, without comprising on efficiency and speed of the color sensor. The lens in P10 Plus feature a wider f/1.7 aperture, compared to f/2.2 lens in the P10. So, if you want a phone that gives you better picture clarity, you might want to pick the P10 Plus over its sibling.
The Kirin 960 chipset (octa-core) will feature in the P10 and P10 Plus. The former will have 4GB RAM and the latter 6GB. You will get 64 GB flash storage in P10 and 128GB in the Plus, and there will be a microSD slot in both.
Given that the Plus has superior RAM and resolution, it’s not surprising that it has slightly better capacity than the P10. Both will allow quick top-ups as they come with Huawei’s SuperCharge technology.
Both handsets will have Huawei’s newest EMUI 5.1 software. The most impressive new software feature is Highlights, which offers auto-tagging by event, person, place, date, and much more. You can also use it to make a video showreel.
The P10 Plus will also have an IR blaster as well as 4×4 MIMO. Both handsets are 4G enabled.
As said above, both handsets are slated for a June release in Canada. Upon their release, you can purchase the P10 and P10 Plus handsets at Wireless retail stores or online at shop.wirelesswarehouse.ca
