MWC 2017 Latest News: Huawei P10, Watch 2 Confirmed For February Event
With at least two weeks before the Mobile World Congress (MWC 2017) happening in Barcelona, Huawei has rolled out new image renders and video for its upcoming flagship phone, the Huawei P10, which hinted its possible dual camera module. On another note, the Huawei Watch 2 was also confirmed on the MWC event through the Chinese microblogging site Weibo.
Huawei Mobile has been spreading good news online after sending out posts on various media channels regarding the upcoming Huawei P10. The announcement is underlined with the tag, "Huawei P10 is coming," along with the date of Huawei's MWC 2017 press event.
The company has also released a video teaser for its Huawei P10 handset, which largely hinted the upcoming dual camera setup that it will offer. In the 21-second video clip, the statement "change the way the world sees you" came in between the "#OO" image, which leads to the revelation of its dual camera feature.
To recall, Huawei claimed an opposite statement on its P9 handset that carries the tagline "Change the way you see the world," which could indicate a front-facing dual camera system to be featured in the device.
For the uninitiated, the Huawei P10 is rumored to feature wireless charging, a dual curved screen and a fingerprint sensor embedded in the physical Home button, NDTV reported. Other key specs of the Huawei P10 points to a 5.2-inch display with QHD resolution and Kirin 960 octa-core processor, with Mali G71 octa-core GPU. Based on previous reports, the Huawei P10 will offer two RAM and storage options: a 4GB RAM / 64GB storage and a 6GB RAM / 128GB storage bundle variants.
On the camera front, the Huawei P10 is tipped to pack a 20-megapixel and 12-megapixel dual rear cameras. Its front camera feature an 8-megapixel sensor perfect for selfies and video calling. The device is expected to house a 3100mAh battery.
On the latest update, Huawei P10 could arrive with another product during the Barcelona event, after a marketing poster for the Huawei Watch 2 was revealed on the microblogging site Weibo, SlashGear reported.
The tipster who claimed the arrival of the Huawei Watch 2 is the company's chief executive for consumer business group, Richard Yu. In his Weibo post, it appears that the upcoming watch could include fitness features, as seen on the man running while looking at the timepiece. In the lower right-hand corner, the statement "Made for Free Spirits" is seen, which might signify the watch's own LTE connection.
It is likely that the Huawei Watch 2 could be released together with the Huawei P10 smartphone during the MWC event.
