April 21, 2018, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

Huawei has just unleashed its flagship beast, the P20 smartphone, with new technologies and advanced AI. Now, it’s the turn of the sub-brand of the Chinese manufacturer to grab the eyeballs.

Huawei’s Honor range of smartphone is all set to welcome its new flagship addition in the form of the upcoming Honor 10 device. With design norms that resemble that of the P20, the Honor 10 comes with equal power and similar AI backing, but at lesser cost.

Both the Honor 10 and Huawei P20 sport the Kirin 970 SoC, the most powerful among the in-house processors from Huawei. With two storage variants, the Honor 10 will be available in combos of 6GB RAM/64GB storage and 6GB RAM/128GB storage. On the outside, the Honor 10 packs a 5.84-inch FullHD+ display that’s bigger than that of its predecessors. The Honor 10 also has the bezel-less display, with a notch similar to that of the P20 filling the top part.

One area where the Honor 10 lags  is the camera. The Huawei P20 Pro came with a game-changing camera. But one shouldn’t expect the same in a lower priced device. The rear-face although has a powerful 16 MP + 24 MP dual camera, though it won’t be of the Leica package. On the front side, the Honor 10 features a 24 MP camera with f/2.0 aperture.

The Emotion UI OS comes with the backing of AI that works for many applications including the camera. Honor 10 also has facial recognition that utilizes the front-cam to scan the face. As with the battery, the device packs a 3400 non-removable battery that supports Huawi’s in-house fast charging technology.

Honor 10 will officially be arriving in China on May 15th. The 64 GB version will be priced at 2,599 Yuan, or close to $414, while the 128 GB version will come with a price tag of 2,999 Yuan ($478). The device will be available in blue, black, gray and purple shades.
