Huawei P10 and Huawei Watch confirmed, set for MWC 2017 unveiling

Chinese device maker Huawei has confirmed that it will be launching its flagship smartphone for 2017, the Huawei P10, at the upcoming Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain.

In a video posted on YouTube, the company confirms that some of the features that made last year’s P9 smartphone popular like dual-cameras (thanks to its partnership with Leica) will be staying and possibly getting better.

As was the case last year, the Huawei P9 is set to be accompanied at launch by a bigger (maybe more superior?) sibling, the Huawei P9 Plus. Some reports hint at the P9 Plus having as much as 8GB RAM which would be a first for the Chinese company but which you should take with a pinch of salt on the side. 6GB RAM, on both devices, however, is to be very much expected.

So yeah, mark your calendars, 26th February 2017 is the big day.

Are we getting anything else on the said day? Of course. Huawei CEO Richard Yu has reportedly disclosed to his followers on Chinese social networking platform Weibo through a teaser that it is also the day that the company will be releasing a successor to the Huawei Watch, Huawei Watch 2? The smartwatch will reportedly run on the newly released Android Wear 2.0 platform.

Even though details of the Huawei Watch 2 are quite spotty at this point, an eSIM and LTE connectivity are highly expected to be on the cards.
