Huawei Says Flash Memory Is To Blame For Slow P10 Speeds

The beastly Huawei P10 Plus is now up for pre-order

The memory shortage is only the latest issue in recent weeks to plague the Huawei P10 and P10 Plus phones. It should be noted that according to the benchmarks, the handsets with the eMMC 5.1 chips had read speeds of about 250MB/s, versus those with UFS 2.0 or 2.1 that were getting 550MB/s or 750MB/s. Huawei has admitted that the issue exists.

The P10 is having a rough time. That sounds very unlikely given the gap in speeds, but Yu also points the finger at competitors that are criticizing the company.

As Huawei hasn't specified earlier that this variance could rise on different smartphones, people started to think that the company wasn't being honest with them under the hood.

Richard Yu, CEO of Huawei Business Group, posted a message on Weibo, stating that there is a mixture of eMMC and UFS memory chips inside of the Huawei P10 units.

Speeds of UFS 2.1 storage could hit 700 Mbps, while UFS 2.0 and eMMC 5.1 storage generally had test results of around 500 Mbps and 300 Mbps. Denouncing the speculations he said that the company wasn't misleading the consumers. "We would never do such a despicable thing as cutting corners".

Luckily, this is no longer an issue on the later batches of P10 thanks to a new anti-static coating technology, and Yu added that the official Huawei stores across China can help apply this coating to the units that are lacking it.
