Along with the Leica-developed dual-cameras on the rear or each phone, the handsets also boast front-facing Leica cameras for next-level selfies – a first for the Chinese company.
The tech behind the Leica-powered cameras has also significantly improved, with new 3D facial detection technology that promises faster, better photos, and a dynamic illumination algorithm that automatically adjusts white balance, shutter speed and more.
Fans of the Huawei’s natural bokeh effect, which allows users to manually adjust depth-of-field and focus after a picture has already been taken, will be pleased to hear that this feature has also received an upgrade – you can now use this effect using each handset’s dedicated 20-megapixel monochrome lens, as well as during video capture.
Though both phones are identical in terms of processing power, the Huawei P10 features a 5.1-inch FHD display and 4GB of RAM, while the P10 Plus sports a 5.5-inch WQHD display and an impressive 6GB of RAM. Both units come with 64GB of internal storage (expandable by 256GB via MicroSD).
Preorders for the P10 have now opened at Vodafone with Optus and Virgin Mobile to follow suit shortly. It will be available in Graphite Black, Prestige Gold (exclusive to Vodafone) and Dazzling Blue (exclusive to Optus) for $899. The larger P10 will only be available in Graphite Black from selected retailers at a price of $1,099.
