Good news this morning for Canadian readers. The Huawei P10 and P10 Plus are coming June 6th to various carriers in the country. Both the P10 and the P10 Plus were announced back in February at MWC and both have been well received. Reviews of the phones have been overall positive and Huawei has sold millions of units internationally. To this point, neither phone has been in the North American market but it has been widely expected that Canada would see the phones first. The US will likely see them too, just under a different name. That’s not confirmed however.
For those who have not had a chance, you can read my review of the P10 to get my thoughts. Personally, I’m a big fan of this phone and it is one of the fastest phones I’ve ever reviewed.
The P10 will be coming to Bell, Fido, Rogers and Videotron while the larger P10 Plus will be exclusive to Rogers for the initial release.
Fundamentally, the phones are largely the same. The P10 has a 5.1″ display while the P10 Plus has a 5.5″. The P10 has Full HD
resolution while the Plus has QuadHD. Beyond this, and a slightly larger battery for the bigger Plus, they are the same. Both run the Huawei-built Kirin 960 process, have 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage. Both also have the dual-camera Leica engineered cameras that shoot at up to 20MP. The front facing camera is an 8MP shooter.
Pricing from the carriers has not been available.
