  3. Huawei P10 leak: Press images surface online

Highlights

    • 5.5 inch display with curved edges
    • Leica branded dual camera
    • P10 Plus to have curved display

Even before the iPhone 7 Plus made headlines with the dual-camera setup, the Huawei P9 was already present in the market with two cameras slapped on to its back panel. The Chinese manufacturer’s flagship was also lauded for bringing in its collaboration with imaging legend, Leica, on to a smartphone.

As we move closer to the start of the 2017 Mobile World Congress (MWC) and all the press events organized by the manufacturers before or during the event, we have also been subjected to the slew of endless rumours about some of the devices. The Huawei P10 happens to be one of those devices.

In a recent post, Twitter leakster Evan Blass, of the @evleaks fame, has pushed out what looks like a press render of the Huawei P10 smartphone, giving us a rather comprehensive idea about what the P10 will look like.

The leaked image shows that the Huawei P10 will have a rather conventional form factor, with curved edges and a metal frame and body. The Leica dual-camera setup can be seen at the back of the device, with a dual-tone LED flash unit. As there’s no fingerprint scanner on the back, it is safe to assume that the sensor has been moved to the home button on the fascia. There’s also the evident lack of on-screen navigation buttons, which means that there might be the option of capacitive navigation buttons on either side of the home button.

The Huawei P10 is reportedly going to be powered by the Chinese manufacturer’s internally developed processor, a new Hisilicon Kirin 960 SoC, which is an octa-core chip clocked at 2.6 GHz. Also rumoured are two spec variants, one with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage, and the other with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage. The Huawei P10 will tote a 5.5-inch screen, while the bigger P10 Plus will have a curved display.

The accuracy of these rumours will be verified once the devices are officially revealed in a few days’ time.
