“The HUAWEI P10 and HUAWEI P10 Plus devices are exciting additions to our premium smartphone lineup and we think our customers are going to love them,” said Dirk Woessner, President, Consumer Business Unit, Rogers Communications. “As the only carrier in Canada to carry the HUAWEI P10 Plus and the HUAWEI P10 in blue and gold, we’re proud to bring our customers devices they can’t get anywhere else.”
“Bell and HUAWEI are longtime partners in broadband network and smartphone innovation, and we are pleased to extend our relationship with the introduction of the HUAWEI P10 smartphone,” said Blaik Kirby, President of Bell Mobility. “We look forward to bringing one of the world's most popular smartphone lines to Bell customers across Canada.”

The new P Series demonstrates HUAWEI’s continued commitment to setting new performance standards and inspiring creative expression. Key features of the smartphone lineup include:
• The Leica Dual-Camera 2.0 / 2.0 Pro Edition, featuring the rear dual-camera set up and Leica front camera, enabling Canadians to explore a full range of portrait photography. With a 20-megapixel monochrome sensor, a 12-megapixel RGB sensor and enhanced fusion algorithms, the new P Series delivers superior technical and artistic photography features on a smartphone.
