Huawei and Motorola launched their smart phones in Mobile World Congress 2017. Huawei has teamed up with GoPro, German optics firm Leica, and Pantone for the latest release of its p-series phone: the P10 and the P10 plus, which have been unveiled alongside its latest series of smartwatches at the Mobile World Congress MWC 2017. Like the P9, the P10’s big drawcard is its camera. While there’s no upgrade from 12 megapixels, the collaboration with Leica to develop a dual lens back camera is now also available on the front. Huawei has also joined up with GoPro for the editing software, which is similar to the camera company’s Quick editing app. The big selling point is the new portrait mode feature, which is targeted towards the “fashion forward users of Instagram,” said Arne Herkelmann, European Head of Handset Portfolio and Planning.
Both phones will support Android 7. Other features include a bigger screen, 5.1 inches for the P10 and 5.5inches for the P10 Plus. Battery life for the P10 is 3200 mAh while the P10 Plus will be 3750 mAh, and both phones feature Huawei’s supercharge that can charge a phone to full within 90 minutes. There will be eight colours, two that have been created in collaboration with Pantone – Dazzling Blue and Greenery. The other colours include Graphite Black, Dazzling Gold, Rose Gold, Prestige Gold, White Ceramic and Mystic Silver, with availability varying from region to region. A hyper diamond cut gives the phone a glossy finish but prevents fingerprint smudges.
Motorola launched two of its budget phone with premium technology that is astonishing for Motorola users. The G5 has a metal body, 1.4 GHZ snapdragon 430 processor and 3GB of RAM. It has 2800 mAh battery inside, plus a 5-inch Full HD display instead, with a faster 2.0 GHz octa-core processor and bigger 3000mAh battery.
