From specs alone, the P10 Plus isn’t just a bigger P10. Huawei made it the flagship of flagships of their P line of handsets, with its 6GB RAM chip, 128GB storage, and bigger battery size. Up until now, we still don’t really know how to utilize 6GB of RAM as 4GB performs extremely well under load already, but we feel that these larger RAM capacities are in preparation for better VR technology.

Out of the box you already get the latest Kirin processor, the 960, paired with a Mali-G71 MP8 graphics chip. It also comes with the latest version of Android (7.0), with EMUI 5.1 drizzled on top for both phones. These combined ensure snappy response to your swipes and taps even with multiple apps running in the background.

The Huawei P10 and P10 Plus have their front and rear cameras co-developed with Leica. The rear cameras feature one full color lens and one monochrome lens. Your photo is essentially taken twice and with Huawei’s fusion software, made into one photo with great colors that really pop without turning up the saturation.

The Huawei P10 and P10 Plus are now available in all Huawei brand stores and affiliate retailers nationwide. The P10 is priced at P28,990 and the P10 Plus retails for P36,990. Color choices for the P10 are Dazzling Blue, Prestige Gold, and Graphite Black. The P10 Plus comes in Dazzling Gold and Graphite Black color variants.
