It’s official: Huawei’s next BIG smartphone coming later this month


Huawei has confirmed its next flagship smartphone, the Huawei P10 will be revealed later this month.

The Chinese smartphone maker on Tuesday released a video teasing possible features of the new device.

The video also confirmed the Huawei P10 will be officially launched at Mobile World Congress on February 26th.

The video, which was uploaded to Huawei’s official YouTube page, told fans to “Change the way the world sees you”, hinting that the Chinese firm could be set to follow on from the impressive dual lens camera found on last year’s P9 smartphone.

Made by Leica, the dual camera was one of the first of its kind, and launched more than six months before Apple brought dual camera technology on smartphones to the fore when it launched the iPhone 7.

The hint at the possibility of another excellent camera on the P10 was further backed up by a some tweets from Huawei which showed off a series of framing effects on different images, as well as the use of different filters and colour options.

Huawei also used the #OO hashtag, which would also seem to suggest there will be a dual camera on the P10.

However, the use of this hashtag may suggest something completely different.

When promoting the P9, Huawei promotional material said: “change the way you see the world” to advertise the dual lens camera, suggesting the P10 may include something different.

It could be that this mystery feature will be an iris scanner, which you would use to unlock the device and authorise additional actions such as logging into apps or making payments.

Previous rumours have suggested the Huawei P10 will be available in three different versions.

Alongside the P10, will be the Huawei P10 Plus, a more powerful 6GB RAM device, while the regular Huawei P10 will be available with 4GB RAM, with the option of either 32GB or 64GB of internal storage.

Expect pricing and full specs to be announced on February 26.
