Huawei P10 and P10 Plus Unveiled at MWC: 4 Key Differences


Huawei has put all rumours to rest as they unveil their P10 and P10 Plus devices at the Mobile World Congress, Barcelona. The company has put special emphasis on both the device’s camera technology — both rear and front.


Both the devices have a lot of similarities, but the bigger one of the two — P10 Plus — has a few upgrades on the smaller version.

The device will be made available in 30 countries worldwide in March 2017.

“As culture and technology continue to intersect in every aspect of our world, we want to deliver new products and experiences that ultimately improve and enhance life,” said Richard Yu, CEO, Huawei.


Both the devices run on Kirin 960 octa-core SoC which clocks at speeds up to 2.4GHz. In addition to the chipset, both the devices have the same camera specifications too — well, almost.

Both, the P10 and P10 Plus, get a Leica dual-camera for its rear snapper with a 12MP unit and another 20MP monochrome unit. In an industry first, the 8MP front camera also gets a Leica lens.

Both the device cameras are equipped for artistic portraits with precise 3D facial detection, dynamic illumination, portrait enhancements and creating a bokeh effect.

The only difference in their camera unit is that while the P10 gets Leica Dual-camera 2.0, the P10 Plus gets Leica Dual-camera 2.0 Pro edition.

“Our impressive new Huawei P10 and P10 Plus weave together the exceptional imaging capabilities of Leica and our stand-out design and hardware innovations to bring users a powerful device experience,” Yu added.

The P10 and P10 Plus will run on Android Nougat out-of-the-box and feature a 2.5D Gorilla Glass 5 for added protections.
