Huawei plans to make a big splash at this year’s MWC trade show in Barcelona. The week-long event centered around mobile devices begins February 26th with press conferences taking place during the prior weekend.
In addition to a new fitness-centered wearable, Huawei plans to debut two flagship smartphones, P10 and P10+, or P10 Plus? Earlier this week, early renders surfaced containing one of the two devices expected.
The design shown in the renders is quite similar to Huawei smartphone models we’ve seen in the past. In fact, they closely resemble last year’s Huawei P9. This makes sense because the P10 will up the P9 from last year. In the images, you’ll see a full-metal design in Gold, which may or may not be the only color option. Present on the front are the handset’s selfie camera, LED indicator and a new home button. This is expected to house the handset’s fingerprint scanner, a change in location from the previous iteration P9 handset. On the back of the device are Huawei’s signature dual-camera lenses along with an additional imaging sensor for presumably faster focusing. The bottom includes a 3.5mm headphone jack and USB Type-C port. In terms of software, we expect to see Android Nougat layered with the latest version of EMUI (5.0) on top.
