Huawei has been successful with its latest releases particularly the P9 but that hasn't stopped rumors about its next flagship phone - the P10 - from circulating.
The GFXBench benchmark test on the Huawei P10 was revealed and if this is true, the new smartphone from the Chinese tech company will be even better then the popular P9.
It has been confirmed that the P10 will have the Kirin 960. As for the operating system, the P10 will most probably have the latest Android OS, the 7.0 Nougat. It may come pre-installed with the company's EMUI skin.
The P10 will have a 5.5-inch touchscreen display with a resolution of 2560 x 1440. The chipset, as indicated in the leaked benchmark test, is the Kirin 960 with an octa-core HiSilicon Hi3660 2.3GHz CPU and Mali G-71 GPU. It will have 6GB of RAM and 256GB internal memory.
Other rumored specs include a 12MP rear camera and an 8MP camera at the front for video chats and selfies. There is no word yet whether the main camera will have a dual lens like the P10's predecessor. However, it is likely that the next flagship will utilize that feature.
Tech Radar reports that a specific date of release hasn't been announced yet though some estimate the release to be sometime in mid-2017. Phone Arena suspects the release will be either March or April next year.
Reports indicate that the flagship phone's predecessor - the P9 - has been impressive since it was released in April of this year. A total of 9 million P9s have been sold since they became available.
One of the P9's deal breakers is the 12MP rear camera. The phone's main camera was made Leica which says so much about its quality. Aside from the high-quality camera, the P9 also had the Kirin 955 chipset, 3GB of RAM, 32GB internal storage, and a fingerprint scanner.
Huawei recently unveiled its latest phablet - the Mate 9. The flagship device will come in two variants, the regular one and the Porsche Design Mate 9. Before that, the company also announced its new wearable device called the Huawei Fit.
