Huawei P10 confirmed and could focus on selfie-lovers

Besides the P10, P10 Plus and V9, Huawei will also be featuring its latest smartwatch. The company had already flagged that it will launch devices at Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2017, with many tipping the Huawei P10, a successor to last year's Huawei P9, as the most likely launch candidate.

Huawei's CEO Richard Yu posted this teaser, showing a man running and looking at a watch with a tagline of "Made for free spirits". Then again, there is a slightly renewed interest in smartwatches thanks to the launch of Android Wear 2.0, which means potential sales.

He shared a marketing image of the device, but it doesn't give us a clear look at the second generation smartwatch. Of course, there will also be a more affordable version without cellular connectivity, for those who do not require it.

It is also thought the P10 will be joined by a larger P10 Plus at Huawei's MWC event, previously described by the company as the "global unveiling of a new flagship device". The P10's teaser video seems to suggest that Huawei may be shifting the dual lens array around to the front of the phone for sharper selfie action.

To recall, Huawei P10 will be available in three variants wherein the first one will come packed with 4GB RAM and 32GB storage capacity, available at a price tag of 508$, which when calculated comes roughly around Rs. 34,120. Its bigger sibling, the P10 Plus is expected to be similar in most areas but will feature a larger 5.5-inch Quad HD AMOLED dual-curved edge display.

Other rumors suggest that the smartphone may be powered by Kirin 960 S0C with 6GB RAM, and may also support wireless charging and run on Android 7.0 Nougat out-of-the-box. Both smartphones are expected to debut simultaneously on the 26 of this month.
