Earlier this month, it was revealed that Huawei P10 will ship with up to five variants comprising of three for the standard P10 and two more for the P10 Plus.
Back then, it was even confirmed that the base model of the Huawei P10 will be valued at around $500 while the high-end Huawei P10 Plus will command a price tag of close to $850. While the leak also gave out details of the RAM and storage options that will be available, there was no word on what processor or operating system that this device will use.
Now, according to a new report coming from benchmarking website Geekbench, the Huawei P10 has been listed with Android 7.0 Nougat running the show. Of course, there is no mention of the specific name of the phone in the benchmark, but the listed model number – Huawei VTR-L09 – says it all. The phone will use an octa-core processor (probably the same Kirin 960 used in the Huawei Mate 9) clocked at a speed of 1.84GHz and will be paired with a RAM of 4GB – specs that match a lot of what has been said in the rumor mills.
Huawei has already confirmed that the P10 will be unveiled at the MWC 2017 show on February 26, which is just a couple of weeks from now. If anything, the appearance on Geekbench with Android 7.0 Nougat on board could only suggest that the company is currently testing the OS on the device before it is launched.

Other specs of the Huawei P10 include a 5.2-inch Full HD flat screen, 64GB of expandable storage, a 12MP Leica-branded dual camera on the back and an 8MP selfie shooter. As for the larger Huawei P10 Plus, there will be a 5.5-inch QHD curved screen, but the rest of the specs will remain the same, although the fingerprint scanner will appear on the back of this model as opposed to the one mounted on the front-facing home button of the standard P10.
We should know the real specs of the Huawei P10 and P10 Plus (alongside the P10 Lite) in two weeks’ time. Stay tuned and we’ll keep you updated!
