Huawei just announced the arrival of Honor 10 in global markets just under a month after its Chinese launch. The flagship is sporting an attractive price of £400, making it the cheapest phone with the AI-oriented Kirin 970 chipset.
Huaweis in-house SoC has a proprietary NPU for better memory optimization. Thats why the Honor 10, much like Huaweis other flagship, the P20, has “just” 4 GB RAM and 128 GB storage.
The front panel features a 5.84 IPS LCD panel of Full HD+ resolution at 19:9 ratio. This means the Honor 10 also has a notch which houses the selfie camera, earpiece and proximity sensor.
The selfie snapper has a 24 MP sensor and f/2.0 fixed-focus lens that will enable portrait photos with studio effects.
The back panel is occupied by dual cam setup – 24 MP + 16 MP. Of course, it is assisted by AI – it has 22 modes for different objects and scenes and adapts in real time. Portrait Lighting is available as well, and there is also AI recognition of multiple objects.
It is no surprise that Honor 10 comes with EMUI 8.1, but unlike in China, the global version arrives with Google services. Everything else is the same – 3,400 mAh battery with Huawei Super Charge support, USB-C and 3.5 mm jack on board and Histen audio technology.
The color versions of the Honor 10 are called Glacier Grey, Midnight Black, Phantom Blue, and Phantom Green, with the latter two having a unique tint, similar to the Twilight version of the P20 and P20 Pro.
Honor 10 is already available SIM-free on plenty of retailers, including Carphone Warehouse, Amazon, John Lewis and Honors own online store. The phone may also be purchased in the UK from Three with a monthly plan, but you have to wait until Thursday, May 17 to get it.
