The Honor 10’s possible official image renders surfaced a month ago but then it was launched officially a couple of days later, complete with a 19:1 almost bezel-less display and dual cameras with AI features. It’s not exactly a souped-down version of last year’s Huawei P10 but it’s more similar to the new Huawei P20 with the notch design. It also promises “Beauty in AI” and brings it to a wider audience that can afford a mid-range but premium-looking flagship phone.
The Honor 10 boasts the ‘Aurora glass’ that consists of 15 layers of 3D glass, giving a “radiance from every angle” effect that combines Phantom Green and Phantom Blue. This one already features an ultrasonic fingerprint sensor under the front glass screen. The phone features a 5.84-inch FHD+ screen, 19:9 aspect ratio, 4GB RAM, 64GB or 128GB onboard storage, NPU processor, and a 3400mAh battery. This one runs on EMUI 8.1 on top of Android.
When it comes to imaging, the 24MP + 16MP dual rear cameras are complemented by a 24MP selfie shooter with 3D face scanning. The AI 2.0 technology makes it “smart” as it can recognize over 500 scenarios in 22 categories, as well as, identify locations and objects. Meanwhile, the selfie camera offers studio lighting effects and 3D face recognition.
The Honor 10 is now available mostly in Europe specifically in Spain, Italy, France, Germany, and the UK with a starting price of 400 GBP ($540).
