  • Huawei Honor V10

Chinese smartphone maker Honor today launched the Honor 7X in India at an event held in London.

Honor is really emphasizing the AI capabilities of its device with the Kirin 970 chip, and the phone features facial unlocking, intelligent display rotation (so the phone doesn't change orientation if you're using it in bed for example), and an intelligent notifications lock.

The phone will be sold locally in the United Kingdom, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Poland, Ukraine and Turkey, Russia, United States, United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia and Iran, India, and Malaysia.

Honor is offering the View10 in Navy Blue and Midnight Black hues. It was actually one of the first to go with an all-metal build, and that's what we have on the Honor 7X. It is just 7 mm thick at the sides. It has a 5.99-inch FullView display with an 18:9 aspect ratio, a Full HD+ resolution (2160×1080), and a 403 pixel density (PPI). Although the phone is made of a better quality plastic uni-body than many others in the market, the two cameras on the back are far too close to the top of the phone, which tended to constantly block the dual camera while taking photos.




The View 10 is first Honor-branded smartphone to come with Huawei's Kirin 970 octa-core processor, which includes the i7 NPU for AI tasks. It has 4 x 2.4 GHz A73+ 4 x 1.8 GHz A53 10nm processor + i7 co-processor. The microSD card slot supports up to 256 GB of additional storage. The optics feature of this smartphone includes a dual-lens camera of 16MP and 2MP sensor at the rear and an 8MP sensor in the front. There are dual rear cameras (16MP +2MP) with PDAF and portrait mode an 8MP front facing camera also with portrait mode, beauty mode, and amusing filters. Connectivity options on the device include 4G VoLTE, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.1, microUSB 2.0, Global Positioning System and FM Radio. The smartphone is powered by a 3750mAh battery that's rated to deliver up to 23 hours of talk-time on 3G, and 22 days of standby time with - it is complete with 5V/ 4.5A fast charging support.

EMUI, the Honor/Huawei tweak of Android has been upgraded to version 8, based on Android 8.0 Oreo, which will be available from launch. The phone has a dual camera with rear ones housing a 20MP and 16MP sensors.

Honor View 10 diverges from the Mate 10 Pro with a slightly different design. Apart from the trend of 18:9 display, the device also follows the trend of minimal bezels.

The smartphone comes in two variants- a 3GB RAM/32GB storage model and a 4GB RAM/64GB storage model. Honor SuperCharge claims to charge the battery to 50 per cent in just 30 minutes while operating at a low temperature and voltage.
