Huawei's flagship P10 handset could launch as early as March 2017 alongside dual-curved screen premium variant, the P10 Plus. As of now, the details surrounding the smartphone's hardware are still the subject of speculation.

Huawei Consumer Business Group CEO Yu Chengdong revealed on Weibo that Huawei’s flagship P10 and P10 Plus smartphones are scheduled to launch this spring in the months of March or April. The post also said that the P10 would come with a non-curved screen while the P10 Plus would feature a dual-curved screen, confirming rumors that also made the rounds on Weibo last month. These screens are expected to be slightly larger than the one on last year’s P9, increasing to a 5.5-inch QHD touchscreen protected by Corning Gorilla Glass.

The specifications of the P10 and P10 Plus have yet to be confirmed since they first leaked in November, but both devices are expected to be powered by an octa-core HiSilicon Kirin 960 SoC based on four 2.4GHz ARM Cortex A73 cores with four 1.8GHz Cortex A53 cores. This chip contains a powerful Mali-G71 GPU and sources say the flagship devices will use 6 GB of RAM.

Like competing chips from Samsung and Qualcomm, the Kirin 960 will allow for faster read and write speeds with support for UFS 2.1 flash memory. This aims to cut down app loading times and handle demanding tasks such as recording 4K video more efficiently.

Thus far the rumored specs include up to 256 GB of internal storage, Android 7.0 Nougat, dual 12 MP rear cameras, a 8 MP front camera, front fingerprint sensor, and Bluetooth 5.0.

I joined Notebookcheck at the end of 2016 after being a dedicated reader of the website for the past six years, occasionally tuning out various lecturers to read reviews of the latest gaming and business laptops. As a writer and tech enthusiast, I focus mostly on smartphones, the latest trending gadgets like VR headsets, and the businesses that create it all. When I’m not admiring the latest graphics cards, I write short fiction and arrange for a cappella.
