The Honor 10 is here - and it's a £399 smartphone stunner

The Honor 10 is here - and it's a £399 smartphone stunner

That's because Honor is a sub-brand of Huawei, so their latest flagships have a number of things in common, yet the Huawei P20 costs a fair bit more.

The Honor 10 features 128GB of inbuilt storage, not expandable via microSD card. The phone not only retains the 3.5 mm headphone jack but also uses a AK4376A Hi-Fi DAC for 32-bit/192kHz audio playback. The device is powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 450 14nm octa-core chipset clocked at 1.8GHz, with integrated Adreno 506 GPU. The Honor 10 will be quite different from its predecessor, the Honor 9, and will sport a notch display similar to that of the iPhone X.

Both phones run Android Oreo overlaid with EMUI 8.1, so there's nothing to choose there, and as they're both similarly new they may well get supported with updates for the same period of time. The company hasn't made the price of the Honor 10 official as of yet. There's a 24-megapixel selfie camera with f/2.0 aperture housed in the notch, and a fingerprint sensor placed in the home key.

The teaser image clearly shows the design and dual rear cameras, and it is making number 7 sign which hints it could be the Honor 7C.

The Honor 10 will come in 4 colors - Phantom Blue, Mirage Purple, Magic Night Black and Grey Gull.

The Honor 10 is compact and easy to hold in one hand, thanks to the tall 5.84-inch display with 19:9 aspect ratio.

Democratic senators want more info about Michael Cohen from AT&T's Randall Stephenson
While some companies-like AT&T and Novartis AG-took Cohen up on his offer, others, including Ford and Uber, turned him down. Oliver then explained that, shortly after the 2016 election, Trump's "fixer" Michael Cohen began to make a lot of money.

The Huawei P20 also has a dual-lens camera with AI-powered scene recognition, but its lenses are a 12MP f/1.8 color one and a 20MP f/1.6 monochrome one.

Honor 7C will be a direct competitor to the Redmi 5 which was launched earlier this year with the base price of Rs. 7999.

Both versions pack 4GB RAM, as well as the same Kirin 970 SoC as the Huawei P20 and P20 Pro, with a separate NPU (Neural Processing Unit) in charge of various AI tricks. Design-wise, the camera is located on the top left corner and is aligned horizontally with an LED flash on the inner edge. We've been testing the Honor 10 over the past week, so stay tuned for a full review in the coming days. "That's what we work hard for everyday at Honor", said George Zhao, President of Honor. The rear camera modules are 24-megapixel and 16-megapixel respectively, while the front camera ups the game with an impressive 24-megapixel sensor.

Honor smartphones have always struck the right balance of flashy yet affordable. The smartphone will be exclusively available on e-commerce website Flipkart starting from May 16.

Rs. 3000 off over regular exchange value for all other devices valid from 16th May to 18th May.
