The crystal-clear 1.2in circular Amoled screen, built-in water resistance and two-day battery life make it a great companion wherever you go.
The citation, meanwhile, for the smartphone camera says:
Huawei?s latest flagship is an improvement in almost every respect. Starting with its design, including a diamond cut chassis and brave new colors, through to the faster and more secure Kirin 960 Octa-core chipset, and finishing with the shining star – the Leica-branded cameras. The dual system on the back of the Huawei P10 now has a 20 million pixel monochrome sensor, and a 12 million pixel color sensor, enabling the introduction of a brand new Portrait mode for stunning portrait photography.
On the front is an 8 million pixel F1.9 selfie camera, also supporting the portrait mode and including Leica technology that is smart enough to recognize if there are more people in the picture, and consequently make the shot wider. For an even more professional photography experience, EISA recommends the Huawei P10 Plus.
Glory Zhang, chief marketing officer at Huawei Consumer Business Group, commented, ?Central to the Huawei philosophy is the tireless pursuit of meaningful innovation to create products that users all over the globe will love.
“We are thrilled the Huawei P10 and Huawei Watch 2 have been honored by such a prestigious group as EISA. From smartphones to wearables and everywhere in between, we will continue to push the limits of technology and design to create experiences that intelligently connect people with the things that matter most to them.?
The Huawei P10’s camera, which is co-engineered with Leica, has received special recognition for its providing users with sufficient functions they need to express creativity through photography. Aside from the latest rear-facing Leica Dual-Camera 2.0 and Leica-powered front-facing camera, it has a 3D facial detection capability and dynamic illumination.
The Huawei Watch 2, on the other hand, exhibits the same commitment to design and functionality by providing users with the tools to live a connected lifestyle with an elegant, ceramic bezel usually found on high-end wristwatches. Independent 4G connectivity, as well as support for Bluetooth and GPS, make it a perfect companion when working out.
