The 2017 Mobile World Congress is a little over a month away and the conference has been where many of the world’s biggest smartphone manufacturers unveil their latest flagships. This year one of the companies that are rumored to unveil their latest flagship is Huawei, currently the biggest Chinese smartphone manufacturer, with the successor to 2016’s P9 flagship – the Huawei P10.
The company has begun sending out “save the date” invites for their press conference at the 2017 Mobile World Congress slated for Sunday, February 26, in Barcelona, Spain. The invite states that the company is planning “the global unveiling of a new flagship device” for the event which is expected to be the P10. This comes at a slight surprise though as the company just launched the Huawei P9 last November 2016.
According to previous rumors, the Huawei P10 will feature a 5.5-inch QHD AMOLED display, a 2.3GHz Kiron 960 octa-core processor coupled with a Mali G71 GPU, 6GB of RAM, and a whopping 256GB of internal storage, and the same dual-lens Leica camera technology found on the P9 although it could come with an upgrade pair of sensors. Leaked renders also show that the P10 will feature dual-edge design and a metal body.
Another company that has announced its intentions to launch its new flagship at the 2017 Mobile World Congress is LG and its new G6 flagship. On the other hand, the Korean company Samsung has announced that it has delayed the launch and release of its next flagship, the Galaxy S8, for a few months to sometime in April.
