Same display

The P10 is about the same size as the original P9 with the same 1,920x1,080 display, but upgrades its screen from Gorilla Glass 3 to 5.

The P10 Plus has a 5.5-inch WQHD display while the P10 (shown here) has a 5.1-inch, 2,540x1,440 screen. The Plus also has a greater battery capacity 3,750 mAh compared with the P10's 3,200-mAh battery.

Dual Leicas redux

Like the P9, the P10 models have dual Leica cameras. They're the same as the Mate 9's - 20 megapixels, f2.2 and 27mm.

Monochrome mode

Huawei uses its dual cameras for an increased luminance range rather than zoom. The luminance capture process is central to black-and-white photography.

iPhone-like portrait mode

New algorithms allow the cameras to recognize and isolate faces for better simulated background defocus in portraits.
