Start Saving Up, Huawei P10 to Launch in Kenya in April


Huawei is planning to introduce its latest flagship device, the P10 in Kenya next month. The device which made its début at this year’s Mobile World Congress (MWC) held last month in Barcelona boasts of a combination of beautiful looks and impressive hardware as well as a controversial home/navigation (or lack thereof) button.

The Huawei P10 retains a lot of what we saw last year with the Huawei P9, including the Leica-branded dual cameras at the back, but they did upgrade them to Leica Dual-Camera 2.0, just as we saw in the Huawei Mate 9.

Among the changes include a new Kirin 960 Processor, Android 7.0 Nougat (which the P9 is yet to get) and EMUI 5.1

With the P10, Huawei’s design team introduced the industry’s first Hyper Diamond-Cut finishing, in addition to the refined sand blast and high gloss finishes. The Hyper Diamond-Cut finish will be available in Dazzling Blue and Dazzling Gold. Greenery, Rose Gold, Mystic Silver, Graphite Black and Prestige Gold will be available with a sand blast finish, and Ceramic White will be available in high gloss.

Other features of the Huawei P10 include:

Huawei’s focus on mobile photography seems to be strengthening the company’s sales. We cannot comment on how much better the P10 is compared to the P9, but once we receive our review unit, you shall know everything.

We do not have word on the pricing of the Huawei P10, neither do we know if Huawei will be selling the Huawei Watch 2 and Watch 2 Classic (which were announced along the P10 at MWC) locally.
