The Huawei P10 continues to be the focus of leaks and rumors as yet another Chinese smartphone maker tries to take a piece of the ever-growing pie that is the smartphone market. Now we’re hearing that it could be quite a colorful phone with five different options to target those who feel that the color of the phone’s outside is an important factor in determining which one to buy.
Huawei P10 leaks on Weibo
The latest leak about the Huawei P10 comes again from Weibo, the Chinese equivalent of Twitter. The tipster has posted some images purported to be of the smartphone in some interesting color choices. In addition to the standard black and white are gold (although many consider this to now be a standard color choice), purple and green.
In addition to the unique color options, rumors also suggest that the Huawei P10 might include audio chips from Yamaha and Harman Kardon. This could mean that the Chinese smartphone maker is also targeting those who like to listen to music on their phones, in addition to the fashion-conscious smartphone user.
The latest images posted on Weibo also show what looks to be a Leica dual-lens camera that’s similar to the one that’s on the P9, although they don’t show a fingerprint sensor on the back of the phone. Android Headlines suggests that this could be because the Huawei P10 is expected to come in low-end and high-end models. The more expensive P10 is rumored to have a curved display.
We’ve also heard that the P10 will feature a 5.5-inch AMOLED display with a 2560 x 1440 resolution, Kirin 960 chip with a 64-bit octa-core processor, and 4GB or 6GB of RAM. The phone could also come with Amazon’s Alexa digital assistant and support for Google’s Daydream virtual reality platform.
Huawei P10 expected to be unveiled at the Mobile World Congress
The P10 is expected to be revealed at the Mobile World Congress, and company executives have confirmed that it will be available for purchase in March or April.
As is usually the case, MWC is expected to bring us several new smartphone choices in addition to the new flagship from Huawei, although probably not a new phone from Samsung. BlackBerry has also confirmed that it’s holding an event at the conference, where it’s expected to show off the rumored BlackBerry Mercury (although that could just be a code-name). We can also expect the Nokia 8 at this year’s Mobile World Congress.
