The device is a mid-range device in a flagship body with some feature changes.
The most prominent new, or rather old, feature is the rear-panel fingerprint scanner, which looks just like the Huawei P9’s. Inside, the phone is powered by Huawei’s own Kirin 658 chipset with 4 GB of memory. The rear camera, unlike the P10 and P10 Plus, is a classic single-sensor one, and shoots at 12 MP, while the front-facing one has an 8 MP sensor.
The display is a 5.2-inch Full HD (1920×1080) IPS panel, and also features Huawei’s interestingly named Knuckle Sense Technology, which differentiates between finger and knuckle taps, enabling for a variety of convenient shortcuts. The phone also runs on the latest EMUI 5.1, which has a number of performance features built into the system. Lastly, the battery is rated at 3,000 mAh, and can make use of Huawei’s own fast charging technology.
