The Pre-orders which included a free tablet worth Ksh.13,000 with 4GB of data, 3 months warranty covering screen replacement and custom engraving of your choice on your device for the first 100 customers ended on 31 April, 2017.

Today, Huawei Mobile Kenya has quietly launched their 2017 flagship into the Kenyan market. Huawei P10 which boasts of Dual Leica-branded Cameras of 12MP (RGB) and 20MP (monochrome) lenses and a Leica-branded 8MP selfie shooter, will be retailing at Ksh. 65,000.

The Huawei P10 is photography enthusiast dream phone as the device comes equiped with a video editing tool which was co-developed with GoPro, “natural” bokeh effect for those blurred backgrounds and Huawei’s Hybrid Zoom technology.

The P10 features a modest 5.1-inch 1080p display powered by a Kirin 960 processor, 4GB RAM, 64GB internal memory which is expandable via MicroSD card, Android 7.0 Nougat underneath EMUI 5.1 and a 3200mAh battery keeping everything running.

The Huawei P10 doesn’t hold back on looks. The device will be available in various colors including Graphite Black, Dazzling Gold / Rose Gold / Prestige Gold, Dazzling Blue and Mystic Silver. Unfortunately greenery and Ceramic white have not been confirmed for this market.


You will notice that the Huawei P10 looks a lot like the P9, aside from the front-facing fingerprint reader embedded in the home button which makes that bottom chin bareable. The Huawei P10 joins the lost of Huawei devices released this year such as the GR3 (2017) and GR5 (2017).


  1. Same rear cameras and pretty much everything else as the Mate 9, but smaller, sleeker and (now) more expensive.

    Massive fan of the Mate 9 here, except they seem to deliver Android Security Patch updates very rarely (Last update for Kenyan Huawei Mate 9 was from December 2016 patch to April 2016 patch).

    That is worrying in 2017 (the year of the hacked device) for a premium flagship phone. I’m sure we’ll be the last to get EMUI 5.1 too.

    Sadly if you buy a P10 in Kenya it’ll more of the same I assume. I wish Huawei Kenya would step up in this sense. Everything else (including EMUI 5.0) is great!

    • Yes, Huawei are not even close to being good when it comes to updates. Unfortunately, Kenyans don’t care that much about updates and that won’t stop the masses from buying the P10.
