The Huawei P10 could be more expensive than your think, at least according to a new rumor. According to Ricciolo, a well-known tipster, the Huawei P10 will be quite expensive, which essentially means it will be more expensive than the Huawei P9 was when it launched in April last year. He also mentions that the Huawei P10 will land during the Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2017 in Barcelona which kicks off at the end of last month and lasts until early March.
Huawei had introduced a couple of truly costly smartphones in the last couple of months, including the Huawei Mate 9, the Huawei Mate 9 Pro and the Porsche Design Mate 9. All three of these handsets are high-end offerings by Huawei, the first two devices are the company’s flagships, while the third one is kind of a luxury smartphone, which is why it costs approximately $1,500. So, how much will the Huawei P10 cost? Well, we don’t know, but do expect it to be more expensive than its predecessor, but we doubt it will be more expensive than $800, chances are it will be under $750 as well, but we’ll see. We have seen quite a few Huawei P10 leaks and rumors recently, the device has been leaking left and right, and if the latest leak is to be believed, it will resemble the Huawei Mate 9, which was to be expected. It seems like Huawei is planning to release more than one variant of the Huawei P10, and one of those variants will feature a curved display.
Huawei will probably introduce both the Huawei P10 and Huawei P10 Plus during the Mobile World Congress, and you can expect both of those devices to ship with the HiSilicon Kirin 960 64-bit octa-core processor, which is Huawei’s very own SoC. The Huawei P10 Plus will be the larger of the two smartphones, though they’re expected to pack very similar internals. Leica’s lenses will be utilized in both of these devices, as they were in the Huawei P9 series, while you can expect Android Nougat to come pre-installed on the Huawei P10 and the Huawei P10 Plus, along with Huawei’s Emotion UI (EMUI) 5.0 skin.
