Honor 10 Will Go Official in India Today as a Flipkart Exclusive
The Honor 10 comes in 64 and 128 GB internal storage options, and, there's no provision for storage expansion which could be a downer for some of you. As always, we'll keep you updated with the details regarding its availability stateside.
The Kirin 970 is the only second mobile SoC in the world besides the A11 Bionic on the iPhone X which comes with something called the NPU - a neural processing unit - that has a singular goal to speeding up machine learning on the device and not guzzle huge amounts of power. Also included in the smartphone is a display notch.
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 Honor 10 is powered by the Kirin 970 SoC with Mali- G72 MP12 GPU.
Honor 10, after being made official in China, has now arrived to the European market, where fans will be able to order devices from May 16.
The major highlight of Honor 10 is the under-the-glass fingerprint sensor, which is present at the base of the front.
Interestingly the dual camera flagship will feature new namesakes for its finishes, with Phantom Blue and Glacier Grey being the United Kingdom colour options.
The presence of ultrasonic fingerprint sensor, face unlock, dual rear cameras, a good front camera and powerful hardware make the Honor 10 an interesting option in its price range. There is also a dedicated NPU for processing the AI tasks.
For shooters, there is a dual rear camera setup that has a 13-megapixel primary sensor and a 2-megapixel secondary sensor, paired with an autofocus lens that has an f/2.2 aperture. "That's what we work hard for everyday at Honor". Honor is promising that the super charge feature can charge the battery from zero to 50 percent in just 25 minutes. Along with the several AI-based features, the camera app also includes AR stickers.
The battery meanwhile is 3,400mAh in both phones, which, given their similar specs, may well lead to similar life.
So the Honor 10's screen is ever so slightly larger, higher resolution and sharper, but it really is a very small difference. The Honor 10 will be available in India at a price of Rs 32,999 in partnership with Flipkart. It also comes with 3D'Portrait Lighting' feature. Selfies aren't to be forgotten as there is a 24-megapixel camera which comes with huge 1.8um sub pixels housed inside an iPhone X-like notch.
Bundled offers include Rs 5,000 on exchange of certain devices plus an additional Rs 3,000 off in certain situations.
