Everything You Need To Know About Huawei P10 and P10 Plus
- Dual Camera Setup
Similarly like the P9 smartphone from Huawei, the P10 is also equipped with dual cameras on the rear with Lecia branding. P10 has a 20MP monochrome sensor + 12MP RGB sensor on the back with f/1.8 aperture, optical image stabilization, dual-tone LED flash, 4 in 1 Hybrid auto-focus and it is capable of recording 4K videos.
- Hyper Diamond Cut
At the press conference in Barcelona, Huawei laid a huge emphasis on its new design language. Huawei P10 comes with a new texture on the back that Huawei calls hyper diamond cut. Huawei claims it provides a better grip and doesn’t catch fingerprints easily.
- Adaptive Selfies
Huawei P10 is also the first smartphone to get Leica powered front camera. It uses an 8-Megapixel f/1.9 aperture front camera which comes with Adaptive selfies feature, which automatically detects the number of people and widens the frame accordingly.
- Fingerprint Scanner
Unlike last time, Huawei has moved to the fingerprint scanner to the front on the Huawei P10. The front fingerprint scanner can also be used for navigation, after turning on the fingerprint navigation from the settings, which will hide the onscreen buttons.
