The Huawei P9 which was released last year was a huge success, and Huawei is planning to build upon that success with its 2017 flagship smartphone, the Huawei P10. Now, recent leaks show that there is also going to be a variant of the new smartphone called the Huawei P10 Plus.
Renders of the upcoming smartphone were leaked recently on Chinese microblogging site Weibo, and some specs of the phone have been listed alongside the images.

The P10 Plus sports a 20MP Monocchrome + 12MP RGB dual OIS cameras at the rear (both with Leica lenses) accompanied by a ring flash. An 8MP camera with a f/1.9 aperture is present at the front, side by side with an iris scanner for security verification.
The phone packs a 3650mAh battery with fast charging capabilities, and it’s able to access 4G LTE networks with VoLTE via its hybrid dual Nano SIM slot. The Huawei P10 Plus runs on Android 7.0 Nougat from the box with EMUI 5.0 layered on top.
