After, debuting in China on April 19 Huawei’s sub-brand Honor will launch the Honor 10 flagship smartphone in London on May 15. The new flagship from company take over much of the hardware of the new Huawei P20 and pack it in a more “youthful” design. We’ve got our hands on the images of the handset and from the outside too it resembles more of the Huawei P20.
According to the renders, the Honor 10 will be available in the three colors namely, black, teal and a special gradient color “bluish-pink”. In terms of colors too Honor takes the same approach that Huawei has already used in the P20.
From the outside, the Honor 10 resembles P20 a lot, except for the arrangement of the cameras on the back. Honor’s new flagship also has a “notch” screen. Also, the fingerprint scanner sits here again on the bottom bezel.
The Honor 10 has a 5.84-inch IPS LTPS LCD display panel that the supports 2280 x 1080 pixels. The LTPS panel has a 2.5D glass cover. The Honor 10 consists an aluminum frame and domed glass covers in front and in the back.
An anonymous website claims that the handset is equipped with 20-megapixel + 24-megapixel dual camera setup, but its TENAA listing had revealed that it features 16-megapixel + 24-megapixel dual rear cameras. The dual flash sits with them on a line.
The Honor 10 features the same 24-megapixel front facing camera that can be found on the Huawei P20 series phones. The frontal camera will also bear AI capabilities.
According to TENAA, the Honor 10, like Huawei’s P20 and Mate10 series, will feature company’s own Kirin 970 Octa-core SoC, which operates at up to 2.4 Ghz and has a built-in “neural processing unit” ( NPU). The SoC is combined with 4 or 6GB RAM, depending on the model and region, while the internal memory can hold 64 or 128 GBs.
The battery capacity of the Honor 10 is 3320mAh and again is identical to the Huawei P20. The operating system is Android 8.1.0 in conjunction with the in-house interface EMUI 8.1.
