In the smartphone world, it is a continuing battle as to who can make the sleekest device. The latest entry of Chinese company Huawei is an addition to the "P Series." The "P10" and "P10 Plus" are big in China and are now getting popularity in the West, too.
The phones were originally unveiled during this year's Mobile World Congress. The "Huawei P10" has a curving design, and it's only 7mm thick and weighs 145g, Mirror said. The design is solid and attractive, with eight sleek colors to choose from - Dazzling Blue, Greenery, Graphite Black, Dazzling Gold, Rose Gold, Prestige Gold, White Ceramic and Mystic Silver, - but the availability may vary per region.
The company is focusing on marketing the phones in Europe, and the "P10" costs about €649, while the "P10 Plus" is priced at about €799. Huawei has partnered with German camera maker, Leica, last year, and the "P10" sports dual Leica lenses. The success of the "P9" could mainly be attributed to the Leica camera tech. The "P10" has dual 12MP RGB and 20MP monochrome lenses. Both phones run on Android 7.0 out of the box.
Android Authority said that the "P10" has a 5.1-inch screen and 5.5-inches for the "P10 Plus." Both versions use an IPS-NEO LCD under Gorilla Glass 5, but the resolution is not the same. "P10" has a Full HD display (1,920 x 1,080 pixels, 431 ppi), while its bigger counterpart has a QHD display (2,560 x 1,440 pixels, 534 ppi). This means that "P10 Plus" has a 25 percent great pixel density.
Aside from the camera, the other great feature about the phones is the battery life. It has a 3,750mAh cell which gives six hours of screen-on time. The phones come with a Supercharger brick and cable, too. Both the "P10" and "P10 Plus" use the Kirin 960 chipset from Huawei subsidiary HiSilicon.
