Huawei P10 vs Google Pixel, iPhone 7, Huawei P9, Galaxy S7 edge, HTC 10: Preliminary size comparison

With the official reveal of the Huawei P10 inching closer and closer, it seems like we're learning something new about Huawei's upcoming flagship almost every day. The P10 will be unveiled at MWC 2017, which is just short of two weeks away, and we've already seen the device in numerous renders, including a freshly leaked 360-degree video showcasing the flagship from all angles. Huawei also teased the color variants for the P10 on Twitter, dispelling previous rumors that the phone will be available in purple (spoiler: it's going to be blue).

With all the info on hand, we decided to take a look at how the upcoming Huawei P10 compares to current popular offerings in terms of size. Now, as can be expected from anything preliminary, we can't be absolutely certain that the dimensions used here are accurate down to a fraction of a millimetre, but they should be very close to the real thing.

Further, these dimensions were revealed earlier today by notorious Twitter leaker @OnLeaks, who claims that the P10 will pack a 5.2-inch screen, when previous leaks have widely suggested a 5.5-inch device.

With that said, let's take a look at how the Huawei P10 stacks up against its predecessor, the P9, and other current flagship smartphones in terms of size, provided its display remains at 5.2 inches:

The P10 (5.2″) has a footprint that is almost identical to that of its predecessor, given that it also retains the same screen size. Measuring at 7.35 mm in thickness, the P10 is just a tad bigger than the P9, which measures at exactly 7 mm.

To put things into perspective, the P10 (5.2″) is just a bit taller than the 5.0-inch Pixel (148.8 mm), all the while packing a bigger screen (5.2 vs 5.0″). It is also about a millimetre thinner (7.35 vs 8.5 mm).

The P9 had a decent screen-to-body ratio that will likely remain the same on the P10 (5.2″), as Huawei has decided to ditch its brand logo from the bottom bezel, replacing it with a physical home button. We're a bit split on this decision, as retaining P9's fingerprint scanner/no physical buttons setup and removing the logo could have potentially slimmed down the handset's bezels, but that's a design choice that some users may appreciate.

Now, keep in mind that there are currently rumors going around about three different P10 variants – the P10 Plus, P10 Lite, and a basic model. Up until now, word was simply that the P10 would be a 5.5-incher, but the latest info by @OnLeaks suggests that the base model will likely retain its predecessor's screen size (presumably the Lite version as well), while the Plus model will supposedly bump things a notch to 5.5 inches.

Note: This comparison is for the base model of the Huawei P10 only! It is based on dimensions taken from factory CAD blueprints and does not take into account previous rumors about a 5.5-inch base version of the P10.

Yet more disgusting Apple bias. Why the s7 edge against the regular iPhone...... Think we all know the answer to that

What's the S7 Edge doing in there? Should have been the regular S7.

Exactly, why have all of the regular models for the other phones but the larger model for the Galaxy? to make Galaxies seem larger?

because S7 is too compact for it's 5.1" screen, it will make other phone looks really bad :-/ if they choose S7edge, they should also replace i7 with i7plus in that list, lol..

The S7 with a 0.1" smaller screen than P9. S7: 142.4 x 69.6 x 7.9 mm P9: 145 x 70.9 x 7 mm (5.71 x 2.79 x 0.28 in) "looks really bad" ? Not really.

But the P9 doesn't have a front button. If Huawei introduce a front button then the phone's chin will double in size making it almost phablet in dimensions :(

From the leaked renders, not really. See the Mate 9 pro chin and they are not "double in size".

Phonarena: You guys are doing a size comparison using unofficial data?

Yeah. I just hope it really doesn't come with a front button. I mean that's so 2012 now. If they do that with the P10, I won't be buying another Huawei handset after my P9
