Huawei has teamed up with leading New Zealand fashion label Zambesi to launch its P10 and P10 Plus smartphones.
To mark the New Zealand introduction of the phones on April 12, Zambesi has created a bespoke collection inspired by the P10’s colours, namely the Graphite Black, Dazzling Blue, Dazzling Gold and Prestige Gold.
The Zambesi collection uses 100 per cent merino wool, black satin and double silk organza gauze in tones of cobalt blue, gold and black, mirroring the P10’s colours.
The phones will be on display alongside the collection at Zambesi’s Auckland and Wellington stores.
The new phones promise some class-leading specs, including 5·1- or 5·5-inch screens, larger batteries, 64 Gbyte plus 4 Gbyte RAM, dual Leica cameras on the back and a Leica front-facing (selfie) camera, fingerprint-repelling Hyper Diamond-Cut metal finishing with colours created in partnership with Pantone, a Kirin 960 processor running Android 7, and support for 4·5G networks.
They also offer Te Reo Māori as a standard language option in New Zealand.
Huawei is so confident of the P10’s glass that it offers a complimentary three-month screen replacement guarantee. Retail price is NZ$999 for the P10, and NZ$1,199 for the P10 Plus.
