Today, we got a chance to attend Huawei’s latest product briefing. Huawei is releasing three new devices from the P series, and a new Huawei Nova Lite. Aside from smartphones, Huawei also announced two new watches, the Huawei Watch 2 and Huawei Watch 2 Classic.
With these devices, Huawei is tackling both the mid-priced and luxury-priced smartphone market. The Huawei P10 and P10 Plus are both co-engineered with world-renowned Leica with the aim of bringing major enhancements to portrait photography. With a never seen before 8-megapixel Leica Front Camera, as well as 20 + 12-megapixel dual rear camera, P10 and P10 Plus owners will be able to experience and take smartphone photography to new heights.
The P10 Plus will feature a 5.5-inch screen and the P10 will have a 5.1-inch display, while the P10 Lite and Nova Lite are both 5.2-inch devices. Both the P10 and P10 Plus will be powered by a Kirin 960 Octa-core 2.4 GHz processor. However, the P10 Plus is packed with a 6GB RAM and comes with 128GB of built-in storage space. As for the P10, it will feature a 4GB RAM, coupled with a 64GB internal storage space.
Made for midrange users, the P10 Lite will have the Kirin 655 chip on it with a Octa-core 2.1 GHz CPU, 4GB RAM and with 32GB internal memory. The Nova Lite will run on the Kirin 650 chip instead, which has an Octa-core 2.0 GHz CPU, 3GB RAM and 16GB storage space.
All of the devices above will run on an Android 7.0. The P10 Plus, in particular, is a highlight with its 3,750mAh battery. Its lower-end sibling, the P10, will only have a 3,200mAh battery, while the P10 Lite and Nova Lite both sport a 3,000mAh battery.
On to the most important bit from this briefing: Pricing and availability. Huawei’s new P10 Plus, P10 and P10 Lite will be available starting from the 23rd of March. The P10 Plus will cost RM3,099, while the P10 is priced at a more reasonable RM2,499. Then there’s the P10 Lite, which is priced at RM1,299, just slightly above the normal mid-range smartphones. The Nova Lite will be available early April, with no concrete pricing yet. As for the Watch 2 and Watch 2 Classic, no price or date were given, we will just have to wait for more official announcements from Huawei in the near future!
