Huawei’s flagship model for the year 2017 has now been unveiled. The successor of the P9 was shown at this year’s Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain following the company’s tradition. Compared to its predecessor, there’s not a lot of things that has been changed in the P10 as the company has decided to stick to the things that people like with the P9, and only the placement of the fingerprint sensor can be considered as a major design change.

Huawei P10On the other hand, the innards of the P10 has experienced several upgrades. These include an upgraded chip from the HiSilicon 955 from the P9 to a HiSilicon 960 which is again, built-in house by Huawei. The Corning Gorilla Glass 3 has also been replaced by a more up-to-date Gorilla Glass 5 panel.

It’s most prominent upgrade though would have to be its twin camera setup. Compared to the P9, it seems Huawei wasn’t pushing as hard to market the camera as a Leica-branded component with the P10. Despite that, the specs of the P10’s camera isn’t something to smirk at. The P9’s twin 12MP rear cameras has been upgraded to a 20MP+12MP setup with can capture even better videos.
