I woke up this morning to an astounding news… The Huawei Honor 10 has been launched. Honor’s latest top-end phones have been impressive, and this new addition is no exception. Honor always try to produce flagship Smartphones that offer high-end specs for a lower price than its competitors.
Firstly, there’s so much to love here, especially considering the price compared with other high-end Smartphones. Trust me, you’ll enjoy the camera, display, and the overall design.
Without much talking, let me get straight into the features of this Smartphone.
Design and Display
The Huawei Honor 10 has a metal trim along its edges, which adds to its premium look and feel. Designed from a mixture of Aluminum and Tempered Glass, this beauty has dimensions of 149.6 x 71.2 x 7.7 mm (5.89 x 2.80 x 0.30 in). And it weighs 153 g.
This phone also has a 5.84-inch Full HD IPS LCD Capacitive Touch-screen, with 16M colors. With a resolution of 71080 x 2280 pixels, it has a 19:9 aspect ratio (~432 ppi density).
The Huawei Honor 10 Smartphone supports Multitouch, with an EMUI version 8.1. There’s a Corning Gorilla Glass protection for the screen.
Honor 10 also sports a redesigned fingerprint scanner, which now lies in the lower bezel under the glass. Instead of being on the rear of the phone. This device comes in four colors: Phantom Blue, Phantom Green, Midnight Black, and Glacier Grey
Hardware and Software
The Huawei Honor 10 smartphone comes with Android 8.1 (Oreo) operating system.
The device is powered by a Hisilicon Kirin 970 chipset. In addition, it also comes with an Octa-core processor with the following processor configuration: Octa-core (4×2.4 GHz Cortex-A73 & 4×1.8 GHz Cortex-A53).
In addition, it uses a Mali-G72 MP12 GPU for graphics handling.
The Huawei Honor 10 also seems to be very fast, handling tasks like browsing the web, and muti-tasking with ease.
This smartphone offers 4GB of RAM and 64GB of inbuilt memory in its first variant, or 6GB RAM and 128GB of inbuilt memory in its other variant.
The memory in either of the variants can’t expand, due to the unavailability of a card slot.
This device also has some other cool features like: Fingerprint (front-mounted), accelerometer, gyro, proximity, and compass sensors.
Camera and Battery
The Huawei Honor 10 comes with a dual rear camera. The first sensor is a 24MP monochrome shooter while the other is a 16MP color sensor.
When a photo is taken on the rear camera in auto mode, the camera takes the same shot with both sensors. Then combines the images for a photo with more details than that of a single camera.
Upfront, there’s a 24MP selfie camera with a f/2.0 aperture. Which is capable of taking high-quality shots that are extremely good enough for use on social media.
On the battery aspect, there’s a Non-removable Li-Po 3400 mAh battery. Also included is a fast battery charging option.
The price of the Huawei Honor 10 is about 400 EUR, which is equivalent to N 170,313
