The Honor 10 has landed
The Honor brand, owned by the Chinese tech giant Huawei, were on stage today to unveil the Honor 10. It will come to market as a great value for money option, as the Honor brand has so far excelled in, it will come with plenty of features and good looks. One commented, however, will it just be a “fragile P20”?
Design wise the Honor 10 does take a few cues from the P20, with the glass coated back that shifts its colours at different angles – dubbed by Honor as “colour radiance”, which is caused by the use of Aurora Glass coating tech in the Honor line on the Phantom Blue and Phantom Green colour options. There is of course a notch featured on the screen, resembling the iPhone X all over the front too. It’s a decent screen size of 5.8-inches.
Spec wise the Honor 10 also performs fairly well, with the display being a FHD+ that is nice, bright and portrays colours well. It also packs the Kirin 970 processor along with 4GB of RAM and comes in 64 or 128GB storage variations. The battery is 3,400aMh capacity, meaning we can expect at least a day’s use (although we’ll have to wait to get our hands on it first), and it also supports the ultrafast 5A charging, giving you 50% in 25 minutes.
The photo’s on this phone will be very decent, with a dual-camera set up on the rear (16MP RGB coupled with a 24MP monochrome lens), which is slightly different to the setup on the P20. It also features a f/1.8 aperture as well as AI powered scene recognition and intelligent image stabilisation. The selfie camera is 24MP with a f/2.0 aperture, which is housed in that notch on the front, and makes for very good selfies in most light.
The Honor 10 will go on sale in 26 countries, starting as soon as today. There is no confirmed price for us in the UK as of yet, but expect it to be around the £400 mark for the basic model. We have high hopes for this phone, and we’ll see if it turns out as good as it sounds.
