A year on (from the P9) and a subtle shift in emphasis for the latest Huawei consumer flagship – the company has gone all out for the most profitable sector of the market, traditionally dominated by Apple with the iPhone. Here we have front-mounted fingerprint sensor and home control, rounded aluminium unibody that’s almost indistinguishable from the iPhone 6S, plus a raft of cosmetic options – and a suitably iPhone-like bump up in price by over £100. Which is not to say that the P10, reviewed here, isn’t a great little smartphone – it is. It’s just perhaps not the one you should actually choose.
In addition to the Huawei P10 and P10 Plus, Huawei also launched the successor to the Huawei Watch: the Huawei Watch 2 and Watch 2 Classic. The two different variants of the smartwatch offer widely different features and cater to a wider range of consumers.
Digital personal assistants are seeing an all new, refreshed focus from companies all over the globe.
Alongside the Huawei P10 and P10 Plus, Huawei will also be unveiling the Huawei Watch 2 at MWC later this month. The news was confirmed by Huawei’s CEO Richard Yu.
Earlier this week, Huawei’s sub-brand Honor launched the Honor 6X in India. The handset will take on the likes of Xiaomi’s popular Redmi Note 4, Moto G4 Plus, and Lenovo’s K6 Note. Unlike its peers, though, the Honor 6X manages to set itself apart by offering a dual-lens camera setup at the rear.
