With the introduction of flagship devices Huawei P10 and P10 Plus in the market, the Chinese mobile phone, and electronics manufacturer Huawei, caused quite a stir in the higher price group smartphone market with the help of its specifications and performance. While the announcement of its international launch was made in MWC 2017 on Feb 26, the manufacturing giant officially unveiled the P10 variants in its home country just a few hours before. However, the P10 variant is looking to be a promising device with sales already touching $100 million.
The major differences between the Chinese and the international variants of these devices are their price and the colors available in the market. While the both P10 and its sibling P10 Plus will be available in 6 shades including White, ceramic, Graphite black, Dazzling gold, rose gold, greenery, and dazzling blue in China, on the other hand, the international edition will churn out devices in 8 shades including two more colors which are prestige gold and mystic silver. But the Chinese editions of these smartphones will cost much lower than the international edition with the difference ranging somewhere around $150.
The company builds up hype around P10 and P10 plus with its 20 MP+12 MP cameras featuring German Leica sensors for the primary camera and an 8 MP front camera. All in all the siblings sport three Leica lenses and have a monochromatic sensor along with RGB sensor for a better photographic experience. With the improvement in lens and optics, Huawei promises superior autofocusing and greater detailing even in low light conditions. It will provide a tough competition to iPhone 7 and Google’s Pixel as far as the camera is concerned.
Both the devices are built on the Kirin 960 mobile application processor similar to their old friends Mate 9 and Mate 9 Pro. The powerful Octa-core processor is a clear competitor to Qualcomm, Samsung’s processors and ups the game in the SoC market. The Hi-Silicon Kirin 960, Huawei’s own SoC, coupled with Android OS v7.0 promises sustained peak performance for longer periods thereby meaning that P10 and P10 plus will provide improved gaming performance and video streaming.
The P10 is smaller than its sibling P10 plus with a 5.1-inch screen size and a weight of 145 grams while the P10 plus measures 5.5 inches and weighs 165 grams. Both the devices are available in single as well as dual sim configurations while there are two and three memory variants in P10 and P10 plus respectively.
Both the devices can charge quickly and can run throughout the day with just 30 minutes of charging. The P10 sports a battery of 3200 mAh while P10 Plus sports an impressive 3750 mAH battery. Other physical attributes are quite appealing too and both the devices are sure to provide a tough competition to other similar mobile phones in the market.
