It is officially launch day for the Honor 10 smartphone here in London. The ‘AI powered’ smartphone will be available in Europe starting today, complete with some funky design changes, some decent specs and a fairly low price tag.
The Honor 10 seems to take a lot of its design cues from the Huawei P20, which impressed us recently. The phone comes with a ‘Phantom Colour’ glass back, which changes colour depending on light. Under the hood, it is powered by the Kirin 970 SoC, which makes the Honor 10’s AI Camera features possible. On the front, you’ll find a 5.8-inch ‘FullView’ LCD display running at a 2280×1080 resolution. Finally, it also has a home button, with a fingerprint sensor embedded under the glass.
The big marketing focus for the Honor 10 is the camera set up. There is a 24MP and a 16MP sensor on the back, with another 24MP camera on the front. Honor’s AI 2.0 tech is used to enable better portrait photos and enhanced face detection.
There will be two versions of the Honor 10 available, one with 64GB of storage for £349 and a 128GB model for £399. Both models come with a 3,400mAh battery and support for Quick Charge via USB C.
KitGuru Says: From what we’ve seen so far, the Honor 10 seems to be a cheaper version of the Huawei P20, with a couple of differing features. We’ll be going hands-on for a review soon, so keep an eye out!
