The flagship model Huawei P10 gets new batch of rendered images and the specifications released now seems more legit than ever.
Richard Yu, Senior Vice President at Huawei earlier commented that it is a big launch for the brand. The Huawei P10 and the P10 Plus will be officially announced in March or April. They are expected to be immediately available after launch. With the release date close, there has been number of leaks in the recent past. The phone’s concept renders give us a very good idea of how it would look and it may be the model that the brand needs to compete with the likes of Motorola, Samsung among other top players.
Based on the leaked image, the P10 sports a full metal body. When entry level phones from Xiaomi boast of metal frames, it is no surprise to see a flagship model from Huawei go with a tried and trusted material. Besides, metal frames always allow better signal clarity and gives a premium look to the phone. The physical home button is still there and is mounted in the center right below the display. Smartphone manufacturers may need more time to get rid of these until touchscreen capability evolves into something phenomenal.
The dual camera setup is going to set the new model apart which according to the render has its LED placed next to the cameras. The fingerprint scanner is there and it’s below the camera on the back. Users will find it easy to access the button when they like to. Many manufacturers are experimenting to find ways to integrate buttons inside the touchscreen. With 3D touch technology, soon phones will get rid of the home button leading to bezeless display and large real estate to work with. However, it is not going to happen immediately as we can see phones in 2017 are still using fingerprint scanner and buttons individually to get the job done.
The leaks from a Chinese website posted on Weibo revealed the renders and suggests that the Huawei P10 will sport a 5.5-inch display with a resolution of 2560×1440 AMOLED screen. The model will be powered by a Kirin 960 64-bit octa core processor with 6GB of RAM and 256 GB of in-built storage space. The 2.3 GHz processor is more than capable of handling every task that you throw at it but such powerful specifications will demand a premium cost. A good camera is expected although we don’t have any word on the camera pixels to be used in the P10. It will use Leica lenses.
