Huawei P10 vs Huawei P9: specs comparison

1
At MWC yesterday, Huawei revealed its new P10 lineup, consisting of three devices – the base model P10, a Lite version, and a 5.5-inch Plus variant. The trio succeeds last year’s P9 family, which too included Lite and Plus versions alongside the regular P9.

The Huawei P9 was a neat phone, with its stylish design and slim profile, responsive user interface, and the great dual-camera setup on its back.

The new Huawei P10 strives to improve over its predecessor by slightly upping battery capacity and the number of effective pixels on its Leica-branded monochrome shooter, among other things, but is it a big enough step forward?

For all its fresh luster, some aspects of the Huawei P10 have remained unchanged since last year. For example, the resolutions of both its display and its RGB camera are the same as the P9's.

Being on the heels of P10’s official unveiling yesterday, it is still early to give a definitive answer as to whether the update is worth the new price tag, but we can still pit the P10 against the P9 in a good old-fashioned specs battle, using the all information Huawei has provided us.
