We were very taken with the when it launched earlier this year, and if Huawei can improve on its dual-camera-powered handset for 2017 then it could have something to seriously worry the likes of Apple and Samsung.
Now we have our first clues as to the components the Huawei P10 might come rocking thanks to some leaked benchmarks that . The model number listed is the Huawei LON-L29, which sounds like the next step up from the P9’s LON-L19 code.
We’re looking at a 5.5-inch screen with a 1440 x 2560 pixel resolution, which is pretty much par for the course these days. More interesting are the super-fast Kirin 960 CPU and a whopping 6GB of RAM, plus 256GB of internal storage.
We already know the Kirin 960, which Huawei makes itself, is going to bring improvements to power consumption and overall speed, and it’s apparently built to take the strain of all those augmented and virtual games we’re going to be playing soon.
The benchmarks also mention a 12MP rear-facing camera (though there’s no indication if it will be a dual-lens model like the P9) and an 8MP front-facing snapper. Android 7.0 Nougat comes pre-installed with Huawei’s EMUI skin, as you might expect.
We’d say those specs are well worth keeping an eye on, especially if Huawei can come up with a chassis as sleek-looking as the P9 was. So far there’s no indication of a launch date, though we think it will show up around April time, like it’s predecessor.
