Huawei P10 launch date revealed

huawei P10 release dateThe P9 was a game changer, now the launch date of its much anticipated successor, the Huawei P10, has been announced.

Ahead of a big event, smartphone makers usually keep (nearly) everything under wraps, even the names of devices they’re launching.

But Huawei has never been one to follow the rules. The company just posted a teaser video which clearly announces the launch of a new flagship: Huawei P10.

The launch date is February 26th and the setting is Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.

This is also the same time and place as the LG G6 reveal.

P10 hints

So, is there anything further to glean from the video? Well, we already have some leaked specs and images.

The slogan, “Change the way the world sees you”, is a bit tougher to decode. Perhaps some new selfie or portrait tricks?

The Huawei P10’s predecessor, the P9, was a great little phone. Its main USP was very much the amazing dual camera. That was backed up with decent specs and amazing build quality.

Since Huawei has a lineup of larger flagships, I’m looking at you Mate 9, the expectation is that the P10 would keep the smaller sizing.

Although, a leaked benchmark pointed to a larger, 5.5-inch device with a QHD resolution, Kirin 960 processor, 6GB of RAM and 256GB of storage.

Plus a new wearable

Huawei CEO Richard Yu has also confirmed on Weibo that the company will also launch a smartwatch in Barcelona, accompanied with the image below.

The poster for the new version seems to announce more of a sporty theme. This seems to be keeping in line with how these wearables are heading. Check out the LG Watch Sport, for instance.
