The device also sports a Kirin 960 processor, HUAWEI Ultra Memory and new EMUI 5.1 with industry-leading 4x4 LTE MIMO antenna system and 2x2 Wi-Fi MIMO antenna system for unparalleled performance.
The HUAWEI P10 and HUAWEI P10 Plus take smartphone efficiency and customization a step further thanks to the powerful Kirin 960 processor and all-new EMUI 5.1. Kirin 960 is Huawei’s latest high-performance SoC chipset. The CPU delivers the best multicore performance among all SoCs, and the GPU boasts a 180 percent improvement in performance and a 40 percent increase in power efficiency.
Following the iconic P Series design, the HUAWEI P10 is sleek and slim for a comfortable hold at 6.98mm. Compared to competitor devices with protruding cameras, the P Series’ signature camera window is flush with the back of the device. Both its 5.1-inch and 5.5-inch models feature the latest Corning Gorilla 5 Glass protection and narrow bezel edges, while the HUAWEI P10 Plus has a 2K display for more detail.
In addition to a metal finish for a minimalistic, clean design, the HUAWEI P10 and HUAWEI P10 Plus’ fingerprint sensor is now on the front of the phone and lies under one continuous pane of glass. The fingerprint sensor replaces the navigation bar making the screen view bigger, while also making smart touch navigation gestures faster and more ergonomic.
Make Every Shot a Cover Shot
The HUAWEI P10’s new Leica Dual-Camera 2.0 and HUAWEI P10 Plus’ Leica Dual-Camera 2.0 Pro Edition, featuring the rear dual-camera set up and Leica front camera, enable consumers to explore the full range of portrait photography. With a 20-megapixel monochrome sensor, a 12-megapixel RGB sensor and enhanced fusion algorithms, the new P Series delivers superior technical and artistic photography features on a smartphone.
The devices’ portrait features include a precise 3D facial detection technology that leverages 190 detailed identification nodes for quicker, more accurate feature recognition. Facial detection is the foundation of Huawei’s dynamic illumination and portrait enhancement features. Leveraging extensive research, a smart imaging algorithm was created to apply studio-like re-lighting and beautifying effects for radiant portraits. Using the new depth-of-field algorithm, a natural bokeh effect creates sharper, clearer and more vivid colors in the foreground, while the background remains elegantly blurred. The natural bokeh effect is available in the RGB and monochrome modes, and can be refocused after the image is taken.
Co-developed with GoPro, the HUAWEI P10 and HUAWEI P10 Plus also feature Highlights, a mobile editing tool which creates a dynamic video of users’ images and videos complete with transitions and music tracks. Highlights can be shared with friends and family in just a few simple taps.
The HUAWEI P10 and HUAWEI P10 Plus are also available in a selection of unique colors as a result of the first cross-industry partnership with the Pantone Color Institute, the world’s foremost authority on color. By combining Huawei’s design expertise with Pantone’s trusted color thought leadership, two new colorways were created to reflect the personalities of the contemporary consumer and shape new color trends in the mobile market. Dazzling Blue and the Pantone Color of the Year 2017, Greenery, were designed by the Pantone Color Institute and optimized by Huawei to create a beautiful, glow-effect finish.
The Huawei P10 will be available for consumers at a LKR 94,900 and is available in Graphite Black, Dazzling Gold and Dazzling Blue colour variants. Adding a new dimension a limited stock of the Huawei P10 Green variant will also be available in Sri Lanka from the month of June. The Huawei P10 Plus is available at LKR 109,900.
