Huawei recently announce the Honor 10 in global markets, which was just after a month after it was initially launched in China. The flagship device came with an attractive price tag, which makes it the cheapest smartphone that came with the AI-oriented Kirin 970 chipset. Set your eyes on the Huawei Honor 10 specifications, features, as well as its price and release date.
Huawei Honor 10 Features
The Huawei Honor 10 has just 4GB RAM and 126GB storage, this is because the brand’s SoC has a proprietary NPU for better memory optimization. It also came with a 5.84 inch IPS LCD panel of Full HD+ resolution and a 19:9 aspect ratio. This means that the Honor 10 has a notch which carries the selfie camera, earpiece and proximity sensor.
The selfie camera of the Huawei Honor 10 has a 24MP sensor and f/2.0 fixed-focus lens that enables portrait photos with studio effect. At the back, you will find a dual camera setup made up of a 24MP + 16MP sensors. The camera is also assisted by AI (Artificial Intelligence). Portrait lighting is available as well, and there is also AI recognition of multiple objects.
The Huawei Honor 10 came with EMUI 8.1, but unlike the China release, the global version arrives with Google services. Every other features remains the same. It has a 3400mAh battery with Huawei Super Charge support, USB-C and 3.5mm jack on board and Histen audio technology.
