The Honor 10, Huawei’s new Android flagship, is finally available and looks exquisite thanks to its iridescent hue on the back and 2280 x 1080 (432ppi) resolution. It’s a colorful phone with plenty of exciting features as well.
For starters, the phone has a 5.84-inches LCD screen with a 19:9 aspect ratio, this being one of the reasons why Huawei has been able to offer this phone at a lower price. The front also does feature a notch and an under-glass ultrasonic fingerprint reader on the bottom of the phone.
On the back, the phone 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.
The camera also features some of the object and AI-accelerated scene recognition from its high-end P20 Pro model. While not all the same type of imaging performance will be available, the advancements made on the P series models are sure to inform some of the camera features on the Honor 10.
In tune with the P20 Pro legacy, it uses the same processor – the Kirin 970, accompanied by 4GB of RAM and a generous 128GB of storage. Additionally, it is fitted with a 3,400 mAh battery.
What really makes the phone stand out though, along with its headphone jack, is the Phantom Blue rear case – it catches the light in vertical stripes and shifts the color to purple. Huawei has said that the process of acquiring the desired effect is so difficult that one in every five glass backs are discarded.
The Honor 10 will go on sale immediately across Europe with a set price of 449 Euro (roughly $540) for the 128GB version, or, alternatively, 399 Euro ($460) for 65GB.
We’ll be checking this phone out at Mobile World Congress Shanghai so look out for our hands-on demo!
