Huawei P10 Leaks Hints A Powerful SmartphoneBy Erwin Castro, UniversityHerald Reporter
Chinese handset giant Huawei is speeding towards its goal of overtaking Samsung in the global smartphone market. The Chinese company is reportedly working hard on a worthy successor to its 2016 flagship smartphone, the Huawei P9, with another P-range device predictably called the Huawei P10.
The phone specs were leaked by GFXBench, and it gives some idea into what the crowd should expect from the upcoming Huawei smartphone, as reported by Digital Trends.
But if the leaked specs on GFXBench are to be believed, the Huawei P10 could pack some serious tech muscle, something more powerful than its predecessors.
The P10 is expected to be powered by a new 2.3GHZ octa-core Kirin 960 processors along with a whopping 6GB of RAM. The P9 had just 3GB of RAM, so by doubling its size the P10 could go some way to addressing the many technical issues consumers had with the Huawei P9.
The images, which popped up on a Chinese social media on Wednesday, show a phone with an all metal body along with a rose-gold finish similar to that found on the Huawei P9.
According to Android Pit, the rumored P10 will feature a 5.5-inch 2560 x 1440 Quad HD display, an increase in resolution from the full HD screen of the P9. The phone is said to have a LED flash and laser autofocus sensor setup, similar to the Huawei P9.A massive 256GB of internal storage is also expected to come.
However, there's one thing the leaked specs don't mention here, that if the upcoming P10 will retain the dual-camera setup of its predecessors.There's no word on release date and pricing yet, although it's likely the P10 will follow the same release cycle as the P9, which means the phone could be revealed in summer of 2017.
Founded in 1987, Huawei Technologies is a Chinese multinational networking and telecommunications company. It's currently the largest telecommunications equipment manufacturer in the world, having beaten the German telecom giant Ericsson in 2012.
