The Huawei P10, went on sale in April 2017, although the P10 Plus is yet to be made available. They are shiny, colourful and boast features ideal for selfie takers.

Reminiscent of the Huawei P9 in design, the P10’s internals are almost identical to those of the Huawei Mate 9. It uses the same Kirin 960 processor, Mali G71 GPU, same amount of RAM (4GB) and even boasts the same amount of storage, at 64GB.

Those looking for more power can instead opt for the larger Huawei P10 Plus, which features 6GB of RAM, 128GB of storage.

What does the Huawei P10 look like?

The Huawei P10 is reminiscent of the P9 in design, but with a few subtle changes, including moving the fingerprint scanner to the front of the smartphone, coupled with more obvious changes: the selection of colours available. Rather than offering the standard gold, silver and black colour options, Huawei has injected a bit of colour into the P10, including Dazzling Blue and Greenery.

What are the features and specifications?

In terms of display, the standard Huawei P10 features a 5.1in Full HD IPS display, while the Huawei P10 Plus features a slightly larger 5.5in WQHD IPS display with a resolution of 2560 x 1440.

Of course, one of the main draws of the Huawei P10 and P10 Plus is its camera setup, and there are several improvements when compared to the Huawei P9. First up, the monochrome sensor is bigger at 20Mp compared to 12Mp, although the colour sensor is still 12Mp. It features improved lenses that should help capture better quality photos, and the same hybrid zoom featured on the Huawei Mate 9. The P10 Plus arguably has the better cameras, featuring “dual camera 2.0” with improved Sumulux H lenses and f1.8 for better low-light photography.

The front-facing camera, it has also had an upgrade compared to the P9 and is now co-engineered with Leica, just like the rear-facing cameras. It’s also smart enough to recognise whether you’re taking a selfie or group shot, and will adjust the angle accordingly, providing a wider angle for group shots and a narrower angle for selfies.
