Huawei s upcoming flagship smartphone the P10 has been rumored quite frequently in terms of its specifications and renders. The Huawei P9 stood out for Leica-certified dual camera setup at the back, and if rumors turn out to be true, then the P10 will continue with the same. A very recent leak by serial leakster Evan Blass showed the official renders of the alleged P10 smartphone. In terms of design, the P10 looks much like the P9, but the front panel could witness a change with the addition of a Home button which was missing in the P9. The addition of Home button on the front panel could also lead to it doubling as a fingerprint sensor as well. At the back, the dual cameras are placed on the top left with the Leica branding sitting beside them.
The Huawei P10 Plus, on the other hand, has been rumored to come with the same set of specifications, but the two would differ in terms of design and display. The Huawei P10 Plus is expected to come with a dual-edge curved display like the Samsung Galaxy S7 edge and will skip the physical Home button. The fingerprint sensor will instead be placed on the back much like the P9 smartphone. ALSO READ: Huawei P10 Plus leaked renders reveal dual-curved edge display: Specifications and features
