Samsung officially unveiled its latest flagship Galaxy S8 today, finally confirming many of its previously leaked and rumored features and specifications some of which are incredibly impressive. So we’ve taken the specs and features of the Galaxy S8 and pit them against the specs and features of the Huawei P10.

Galaxy S8 vs Huawei P10: Design

The Huawei P10 features a design that’s very similar to its predecessors albeit slightly softer. The dual camera system as well as the dual-tone LED flash and laser autofocus is found on the upper area of the device’s rear.  As for the Galaxy S8, it features an almost edge to edge screen design with barely any bezel left on the top and bottom of the device’s front.

Galaxy S8 vs Huawei P10: Display

Galaxy S8 vs Huawei P10: Specs


The Huawei P10 runs on the company’s home-grown Kirin 960 octa-core processor coupled with a Mali-G71 MP8 graphics chip while the Galaxy S8 features either a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 octa-core processor or its home-grown Exynos 8895 octa-core processor. Both the Snapdragon 835 and the Exynos 8895 use Samsung’s 10nm process while the Kirin 960 still uses the older 16nm process so while all three processors feature similar core clock speeds, the smaller 10nm process leads to more efficiency and less power draw.

RAM and ROM and MicroSD

Both the Galaxy S8 and Huawei P10 feature 4GB of RAM, 64GB of internal storage, and supports expandable storage up to 256GB so they’re equal on that account. Both devices also have variants with 6GB of RAM.


In the battery department, the Huawei P10 is able to slightly trump the Galaxy S8 with its larger 3500mAh battery while the latter only features a 3000mAh battery.

Galaxy S8 vs Huawei P10: Cameras

When it comes to cameras, the Huawei P10 may have an advantage with its dual rear camera system which consists of a 20-megapixel sensor coupled with a 12-megapixel sensor while the Galaxy S8 only has a single 12-megapixel Dual Pixel rear camera. Both devices feature similar front-facing cameras though with both having 8-megapixel sensors.

Galaxy S8 vs Huawei P10: Pricing & Availability

Lastly, the Galaxy S8 is priced at €799 while the Huawei P10 is priced at €649, making the latter significantly cheaper. And while the Huawei P10 will be available in the next few days, the Galaxy S8 will be available on April 21, 2017.
