​P10 officially launched today

​The Huawei P10 Smartphone was officially launched today in Port Moresby.

Huawei Technologies, in collaboration with Digicel PNG, officially launched the latest entry to the ‘P’ series during a breakfast event.

The P10 smartphone is the latest Huawei ‘P’ series model to hit the market, boasting technological improvements rivaling that of other brands.

What gives the P10 an edge over its rival brands is its camera which has been co-engineered with Leica, a German company that manufactures optics and high end cameras.

The P10 has the only dual camera in the world with a separate monochrome (black and white) and colour sensor and over 100 facial recognition algorithms for the perfect portrait or ‘selfie’ shot.

And it has been recognised for this, being awarded the European Image and Sound Association Smartphone Camera for 2017 – 2018.

“The Huawei P10 class is all about photography.

“World class portrait photography, our partnership with Leica, has developed our dual camera experience and world leading dynamic facial recognition where you no longer have to go to the makeup artist,” said Michael Townsley, Huawei Director of Consumer Business.

While the dual Leica camera has been the main talking point of the P10, the phone also hosts a number significant upgrades such as lightning speed CPU, is supercharge which is two times faster, front fingerprint and home button and a larger memory (4GB).

Meanwhile, Digicel PNG announced at the launch plans to overhaul its network.

Digicel Regional CEO Pacific, Oliver Coughlan, announced that with the entry of a top class phone, there also needed to be top class networks.

“I’m delighted to say that we have a plan that is to swap our complete network to a Huawei network,” he said.

The Huawei P10 smartphone is currently on the market.
