New teardown shows us the innards of the Huawei P10

New teardown shows us the innards of the Huawei P10

The Huawei P10 is the Chinese phonemaker’s latest major smartphone release. Think of it like a smaller version of the Huawei Mate 9. Much smaller, in fact. The major difference between the Mate 9 and the P10 besides the size and battery capacity is the omission of an IR-blaster on the P10, which totally would have put the cherry on top.

Anyway, back to the teardown. Since the P10 has a 5.1-inch screen, you can imagine that Huawei had to accommodate identical internals from the Mate 9 to the P10. The resulting hardware build is quite impressive.
Despite packing a respectable 3,200 mAh battery, notice how much space the battery takes up in the disassembled phone: almost the entire width of the phone. Take note, Apple.

A couple of notable design elements are the irreversible SIM tray (which only lets you insert it one way) and Huawei's effort to use as few individual components as possible makes this device relatively repairable. The most difficult part would be separating the glass display from the metal body, which, once removed, is basically reduced to a metal shell. Meanwhile, most of the components are mostly fastened to the chassis, which is sandwiched between the battery and the glass.

WhatsApp to get PiP video calls
WhatsApp beta version 2.17.265 for Android comes with a new feature, one that is enabled by default for those devices that are running the Android O Developer Preview. The feature would let you minimize the video call window into a smaller window so you can keep your video conversation going while answering another WhatsApp conversation.
We’re not sure if the small window with the video chat is a floating window that can be dragged around, nor do we know if the video conference would continue even after minimizing WhatsApp. If so, this would be one of the first video calling apps to allow this type of multi-tasking on a smartphone platform. Are you an avid WhatsApp user who would love the idea of a pop-out video calling feature?
