At the 2017 edition of the Mobile World Congress, Huawei unveiled two new smartphones, the P10 and P10 Plus. Even though the two handsets are pretty similar, they do have noteworthy differences. As is the case with most “plus” units, the Huawei P10 Plus has an edge over his smaller sibling. Even so, this kind of statement leaves a lot to the imagination.
Huawei P10 and P10 Plus: Specs and Differences
Fortunately, both units support external storage and have been fitted with the new Kirin 960. Furthermore, both handsets have a 12-megapixel rear-facing camera which also comes with a 20-megapixel monochrome sensor. This represents a major upgrade compared to the P9’s configuration. However, the engineers didn’t stop there and improved the front-facing camera’s quality by incorporating a Leica-powered selfie snapper into both the Huawei P10, as well as the P10 Plus.
To keep scratches away, both units are protected by a 2.5D Gorilla Glass 5. Also, the smartphones will run the latest version of Android straight out of the box. And this is pretty much where the similarities end.
Talking about major differences, it is hard to pinpoint any. However, it comes as no surprise that the larger unit, namely the P10 Plus, coming in at 5.5 inches, has a resolution of 2,560×1,440 and 540 ppi, while the smaller handset, measuring 5.1 inches comes with a smaller resolution of 1920×1080 and has fewer pixels per inch, more specifically, 432.
Also, the bigger the case, the bigger the battery. Hence, the P10 Plus comes with a 3,750 mAh battery. At the same time, even though weaker than the P10 Plus’, Huawei P10’s cell is still 200 mAh over the total capacity of P9’s cell, namely 3,200 mAh. In terms of memory, Huawei’s latest units will both sport 4Gb of RAM and 64Gb of internal storage. However, the 6Gb of RAM and 128Gb of native storage option will be available only for the P10 Plus.
Huawei will roll out its latest creations sometime in March. The company will be shipping the new handsets to more than 20 countries. Hence, the P10 will go for approximately $685, while the P10 Plus will sell for no less than $738. Ultimately, users who want to go for the 6Gb of RAM and 128Gb of internal storage will have to take roughly $844 out of their pockets to enjoy the Huawei experience to the fullest.
