Huawei P10 headed for MWC and could carry up to 8 GB of RAM
The only confirmation from Huawei so far is that the Chinese manufacturer will hold a press conference this coming February 26th for MWC 2017 where the P10 will almost assuredly be unveiled. A recent tweet from Huawei itself is teasing the P10 launch even further by highlighting its dual rear cameras. Now, additional leaks have been unearthed through the Spanish online retailer Phonehouse to show that the P10 may also launch alongside the P10 Plus variant with 8 GB of RAM for as much as 800 Euros.
According to the source and its unconfirmed specifications, the P10 Plus could carry the in-house Kirin 960 SoC that also powers the current Mate 9. Since the device would not be dependent on the Snapdragon 835 unlike the LG G6 and others, Huawei could potentially launch the P10 ahead of the Galaxy S8. The P10 Plus could also be one of the first few consumer smartphones to ship with 8 GB of RAM with the Asus Zenfone AR and Vernee Apollo 2 being two others.
Specific entries in the leak have us in doubt about the legitimacy of the data. For example, the Spanish text refers directly to a 5.5-inch FHD display, but the accompanying specifications sheet clearly states a display with a native resolution of 2560 x 1440 pixels instead. Furthermore, the 512 MB ROM is another red flag as this is far too low of a storage capacity.
The rest of the world will have to wait until February 26th for more concrete details on Huawei's next flagship smartphone.
