Huawei P10 Plus to max out at 8 GB RAM says retail listing
Huawei could bundle 8 GB RAM and 256 GB storage into an $800 package
Huawei has already penciled in a launch event for later this month and it's very likely that the P10 and P10 Plus will be part of the showcase. The two handsets have caught the attention of the blogosphere more than once during the past few weeks, and a very recent press document leak has indicated a strong assortment of internal hardware. Even so, we may yet have underestimated how much power Huawei plans to bring to the P10 party, with a new tidbit suggesting a version with a whopping 8 GB RAM.
This leak arrives courtesy of Spanish retailer Phone House, which has listed the tech. specs of the P10 Plus. Apparently, we can expect the more sizeable model to include a 5.5-inch, 1440 x 2560 display, a 12-megapixel rear sensor complete with dual-LED flash, and 8 gigs of RAM. Of course, none of this is confirmed for now, so paint us somewhat skeptical as to the legitimacy of the RAM claim. Also, it's a borderline certainty that the Huawei P10 Plus will get a duo of rear cameras, which we'd expect of both P10 models given the Chinese firm's love-in with German optics firm Leica.
Who needs the cloud, eh?Also very likely is the presence of Android 7.0 Nougat off the bat, which is noted in this listing. The Huawei P10 Plus could also pack 256 GB of expandable storage according to this new info, which is quite a leap on the previous indication that the P10 range would max out at 128 GB of internal real estate. If, as suggested here, support for 256 GB microSD cards is also a part of the deal, P10 Plus owners could potentially store a whopping half-terabyte of data in their back pockets.
The P10 Plus is listed as a beneficiary of Huawei's own Kirin 960 SoC, which had its first outing with the firm's Mate 9. As we found in our review of the company's new phablet, the Kirin 960 is very snappy indeed, and with 8 gigs of RAM in accompaniment, the P10 Plus may be an even more attractive proposition to the power-hungry.
Listed at a cost of $799, it's offered in silver, gold and black color configurations. It's cited as 'temporarily out of stock' as one might expect, but further details should emerge as Huawei's confirmed Feb. 26th launch event draws closer.
