What's surprising about China's Huawei is the fact that the company isn't exactly a household name in the West, despite being the third largest smartphone manufacturer in the world. Things might take a turn for the tech behemoth, however. Rumored to be released by the second quarter of 2017 is the Huawei P10; a no-compromise device that encapsulates top tier specs.

Huawei P10 Specs: Android 7.0, Kirin 960 Chipset, 256GB Storage

Recently posted on the GFXBench benchmark website are Huawei P10's specs. The upcoming smartphone features an Android 7.0 and an octa-core CPU at 2.3GHz. The prototype reveals that the P10 will have a 5.5-inch screen with a resolution of 1440 x 2560, a Mali G-71 GPU, and will be powered by the Kirin 960 chipset. The phone's native storage boasts 256 GB and a 6GB RAM.

Phone Arena reports that the Huawei P10 will be released next year, citing Hawa Hyath, Huawei's sub-Saharan Africa marketing director. Huawei Nova will be on sale in South Africa on February 2, followed by the introduction of the Huawei Mate 9 in the region. This implies that the company will have to push P10's release on the second quarter of 2017, following the P9's footstep, that was released last April.

With the Huawei P10's upcoming release, the company might leapfrog Apple in two to three years, that is according to Richard Yu himself, Huawei's CEO of consumer business group. The company currently owns the third biggest global market share among smartphone manufacturers. Last year even saw a strong year-over-year group for the company. Yu adds that the company will enhance ties with US carriers as they are aiming to increase shipments by thiry percent.

Exact details of the Huawei P10's release remains to be announced by the company execs themselves. Moreover, the recently unveiled specs at the GFXBench might still change, given we're still months away from the phone's release.
