The metal bodied device has a lot more to offer than its predecessor with respect to design change, upgraded processor, camera, and software.
Luckily for many music lovers, Huawei it seems has made a decision to retain the headphone jack as the images reveals a distinct 3.5 mm audio jack on the handset.
When is it out?
There was standing room only at the much-anticipated launch of the Huawei P10 range. The Huawei Watch 2 is rocking a sporty design with some extra features, while the Watch 2 Classic is more traditional for those who want, well, a more classic look. Both the Huawei Watch 2 and Watch 2 Classic will come with all the other features you'd expect, such as a heart rate sensor, GPS, NFC support, and IP68 water resistance.
The Huawei P10 Plus, as its name implies, is the beefier of the two models with a 5.5-inch WQHD display.
The Huawei P10 is fitted with a 5.1-inch QHD 1440p display Corning Gorilla Glass 5 on top.
"The P10 will have a 5.1" 1080P display, while its big brother, the P10 Plus, will have a 5.5" 2560 x 1440P display.
If you follow our site, you have probably stumbled across a few articles involving the Huawei P10 or the Huawei P10 Plus.

Then there are the normal stainless steel versions of the phone that come in green, silver, gold or rose gold.
Unlike past year where the fingerprint scanner was placed on the back, the Huawei P10 and P10 Plus have this feature on the front. Instead you'll have to hold down on the fingerprint sensor to go back to the home screen. The images show the device will have a 3.5mm audio jack at the bottom, unlike what other major manufacturers are deciding to forgo these days.
Both the Huawei P10 series phones stick to the same design language that we saw on last year's models.
There's an aperture of f/1.8 too. Moreover, Huawei's new phones also come with a Leica-powered "portraiture" mode that does something very similar to what the "portrait" mode does in Apple's iPhone 7 Plus.

Both smartphones run Huawei's HiSilicon Kirin 960 chipsets that are built from the ground up for high performance, less power consumption and enhanced high-speed connectivity with 4×4 MIMO antenna setup for speed of 600mbps. The moving of the fingerprint sensor to the front hasn't affected their capabilities, and Huawei still claims the sensors on its phones are the fastest on the planet.
The Huawei P10 will be offered in Dazzling Blue and Dazzling Gold color options, which feature Huawei's "Hyper Diamond-Cut" finish. The Plus model also gets 128GB of storage and 6GB of RAM out of the box, with expandable storage as an option.
Both the handsets also get a memory card slot for further memory expansion.
The double set-up should also help in low light - it's certainly what we found on the Mate 9 - and of course you can just use it to take arty black-and-white snaps.
