Huawei has confirmed that its P10 and P10 Plus smartphones will launch in Canada on June 6th.
A general Spring release was all that was previously confirmed. This is the first time one of the company’s flagship devices has come to the Canadian market. Huawei’s mid-range Nova Plus phone was released in Canada in December of last year.
The 5.1-inch P10 will be available through Rogers, Fido, Bell and Videotron. The 5.5-inch P10 Plus, as well as blue and gold colours for both phones, will be offered exclusively through Rogers.
Key features of the phone include:
- a Kirin 960 Octa-core processor
- 3,200 and 3,750 mAh batteries for the P10 and P10 Plus, respectively, which support fast charging
- 32GB of storage for P10 and 64GB for P10 Plus; both devices will have 4GB of RAM
- 20-megapixel monochrome sensor, a 12-megapixel RGB sensor and enhanced fusion algorithms
“We are excited to be working with Rogers, Bell and Videotron in bringing these fantastic new smartphones to Canada. This is a huge step forward in positioning HUAWEI in the Canadian device market,” said Felix Li, president of Huawei Devices Canada, in a statement sent to MobileSyrup. “Our new P10 line weaves together the exceptional imaging capabilities of Leica with our stand-out design and hardware innovations to bring users a powerful mobile experience.”
