We’ve already unboxed the Huawei P10, you know that, so it’s time to go big or go home. Here we are with the Huawei P10 Plus, unboxed below as well and with its differences from the P10 detailed. Optics are upgraded from the 5.1 incher and the 5.5 incher also has a few other tricks up its sleeve. Priced at $850, the device is detailed below.
The box is exactly the same as the one of the P10, opening up like Iron Man’s armor. Inside it there’s the metal key used to open up slots, the manual, USB Type C cable, headphones and charger. The charger has Supercharger abilities, juicing up the phablet fast. And now let’s to go the “differences” bit. While the P10 has a 5.1 inch Full HD screen, the P10 Plus goes with a 5.5 inch Quad HD display.
There’s a Kirin 960 processor inside, up to 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage. The device measures 6.98 mm in thickness, like the P10, but it’s obviously heavier at 165 grams. Part of that weight is constituted by the 3750 mAh battery, which is quite generous. There’s an USB Type C port here, Android 7.0 with EMUI 5.1 on top and of course the dual camera with Leica tech.
Like the P10 we get a 20 megapixel monochrome sensor and 12 MP color sensor. The 5.1 incher has a F/2.2 aperture and 5.5 incher goes with F/1.8. Huawei also brought Summilux lenses here, instead of the Summarit on the smaller phone. OIS, laser focus and PDAF are also here. Upfront we’ve got an 8 MP camera, also with Leica optics. Obviously, the smartphone has a metal body and there’s a slightly curved glass panel upfront.
Said panel covers the Home button, with fingerprint scanner. Huawei P10 Plus comes in unique hues like Dazzling Blue and Greenery, which are really eye catching, but also the classic rose gold, silver, black and white. Other extras from the smaller smartphone are infrared emitter and 4X4 MIMO connectivity. Of course, we’re reviewing both P10 models as we write this and we’ll be back with a full review soon.
