'Huawei P10' release date, specs, features: P10's Leica cameras, one of the best in the market

Huawei's latest smartphone, the P10, is — in terms of design — very similar to its preceding title, despite that it hosts a pretty significant amount of upgrades. One notable update is its camera which, according to Forbes, is one of the best in the market.

(Huawei)Huawei P10 boasts of well-built handsets and strong Leica-branded cameras, reports say.

The Huawei P10 still carries dual Leica cameras, but, unlike the preceding unit, the P9, it has been upgraded. The latest unit now comes with a 20-megapixel rear camera and a 12-megapixel front camera. To note, the preceding unit features a dual 12-megapixel snapper.

Speaking to Huawei's consumer business group head Jim Xu, Forbes was able to learn that the tech company spent a great deal of time with Leica to perfect its software. The latest algorithm is, as the publication states, ultimately responsible for the big improvement.

Forbes notes that P10's design is rather disadvantageous for Android users. Instead of allowing users to take advantage of the Nougat's quick switch feature, the three-button setup will take this privilege away from P10 users.

The P10 has a 5.1-inch IPS LCD screen, with a resolution of 1920 x 1080. It is powered by a HiSilicon Kirin 960, which comes with 4 GB of RAM. The device has two storage capacity variants, a 32 GB and a 64 GB. The P10 is available in silver, rose gold, black, gold, blue, and green.

On a different note, Huawei has finally confirmed the third unit in the P10 series, the P10 Lite. Reports say it will be made available on March 29, and that it will cost $370. Pre-orders have already started in the UK.

Like the latest premium units in the series, the P10 Lite still features a rear-panel fingerprint scanner, much like the P9. But unlike the P10 and the P10 Plus, its camera is only a single-sensor. Its rear camera has 12 megapixels, while the selfie camera has 8 megapxiels.

More updates should arrive soon.
