Huawei took to the stage at MWC 2017 in Barcelona to launch not only the sporty Huawei Watch 2 but also it's colorful 2017 flagship, the new Huawei P10. Boasting a colorful design, new features, and improved internals, the Huawei P10 will hit the market in March and will take over from last year's Huawei P9, which was a commendable effort by the Chinese manufacturer to compete for the flagships of rivals Apple and Samsung. Sadly, Huawei P9 didn't quite hit the high notes with consumers. How does Huawei P9 compare to the Huawei P10?
The Huawei P9
Huawei P9 smartphone was launched in April 2016. The phone features a 5.20-inch touchscreen display with a resolution of 1080 pixels by 1920 pixels. The Huawei P9 is powered by 1.8GHz octa-core HiSilicon Kirin 955 processor with 3GB of RAM. The phone comes with 32GB of internal storage that can be expanded up to 256GB via a microSD card. As for the cameras, the Huawei P9 sports a 12-megapixel primary camera on the rear and an 8-megapixel front snapper for selfies. The Huawei P9 runs Android 6.0 and under the hood is a 3000mAh nonremovable battery.
The Huawei P10
Huawei P10 smartphone was launched in February 2017. This smartphone features a 5.10-inch touchscreen display with a resolution of 1440 pixels by 2560 pixels. The Huawei P10 is powered by octa-core HiSilicon Kirin 960 processor with a whopping 4GB of RAM. The phone comes with 64GB of internal storage that can be expanded up to 256GB via a microSD card.

The Huawei P9 is a great smartphone, though, it can't quite compete with the P10. The P10 features faster internals, more stunning design, a bigger base storage, enhanced cameras and a variety of new color options. Surely, it's worth an upgrade.
