The Honor 10, Huawei’s new Android flagship, is finally out and it looks like a tiny jewel, thanks to its iridescent hue on the back, and a 2280 x 1080 (432ppi) resolution.
The phone has an 5.84-inches LCD screen, with a 19:9 aspect ratio, which is one of the reasons why Huawei has been able to cut down the selling price.
It employs a dual-camera system with a 16-megapixel main sensor and a 24-megapixel monochrome sensor. Both lenses have an f/1.8 aperture.
Huawei has made object and AI-accelerated scene recognition a focus on its P series, so Honor 10 has taken a few tips and tricks from the P20 Pro, but we should not expect the same type of imaging performance.
In tune with the P20 Pro legacy though, it has the same processor – the Kirin 970, accompanied by 4GB of RAM and sprinkled generously with 128GB of storage.
With all that storage, the phone is bound to be filled with apps eventually, so Honor 10 was fit with a 3,400mAh battery. To unlock it, you’ll have to press quite a bit on the under-glass ultrasonic fingerprint reader on the bottom of the phone.
Oh, and while the notch is here, the headphone jack hasn’t been ditched! You can plug in your headphones easily.
What really makes the phone stand out though, is its Phantom Blue rear case – it catches the light in vertical stripes and shifts the color to purple. Honor has said that the process of acquiring the desired effect is so difficult, that one in every five glass backs are discarded.
Makes one feel quite special for owning it, doesn’t it?
If you do decide you would like to get one, the Honor 10 will go on sale immediately across Europe with a set price of 449 Euro (roughlt $540) for the 128GB version, or, alternatively, 399 Euro for 65GB.
