MWC 2017 - Huawei's Richard Yu took the stage today to announce the latest P-series smartphones - the P10 and P10 Plus.
We've heard a lot about the phones in the previous weeks, and today those leaks have been confirmed. Huawei spent a good part of their press event talking about the design of the phones and the color options.
The P10 comes with a 2.5D curved Gorilla Glass 5 at the front, and all-metal back with a hyper-diamond cut or sandblasted finish. The fingerprint sensor is now at the front of the device, unlike the P9 which has the fingerprint sensor at the back.
The P10 has a 5.1-inch 1080p IPS display, just a bit smaller than last year's P9.
The device is powered by a Kirin 960 processor, and it comes with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage expandable up to 256 GB with a microSD card.
The P10 features a dual camera - 12MP color and 20MP monochrome sensors. Both come with f/2.2. The selfie cam has 8MP and f/1.9.
The smartphone packs 3,200 mAh and supports Super Charge, which the company claims will enable you a day of usage after just 30 minutes of carging.
The P10 will be available in Mystic Silver, Rose Gold, Graphite Black, Dazzling Gold, Dazzling Blue, and Greenery color options in chosen markets in March at a price of 649 euros (around $685).

The device is also powered by a Kirin 960 processor but comes with 4GB or 6GB of RAM, and 64GB or 128GB of internal storage.

The battery is also bigger with 3,750 mAh capacity, and it also supports Super Charge.
