UK Honor 10 launch unveiled at 'Beauty in AI' event

After having launched the Honor View 10 earlier (read our full review of the smartphone here), Honor also announced an upgraded version of it, the Honor 10 which will be launched globally on 15th May and will go on sale in India from 16th May midnight exclusively through Flipkart.

The Honor 10 comes with a glass fused to an aluminum design. The phone is powered by a 1.8GHz Octa-Core Snapdragon 450 processor with Adreno 506 GPU.

The Honor 10 has a striking finish thanks to the 15 layers of 3D glass featured on the back of the device. "Honor introduced Phantom Blue in 2016, Phantom Grey in 2017 and now the exquisite Aurora, a true breakthrough in smartphone design", said Honor President George Zhao.

The phone sports a 5.99-inch TFT LCD IPS HD+ display with screen resolution of 1440 x 720 pixels and aspect ratio of 18:9. The "AI powered" smartphone will be available in Europe starting today, complete with some funky design changes, some decent specs and a fairly low price tag.


The dual camera system on-board the Honor 10 can also take portrait shots or photos with shallow depth of field. The company launched the P20 Lite under Rs 20,000 segment, and the flagship P20 Pro, which is the company's flagship smartphone priced at Rs 64,999. It supports Dual 4G VoLTE, dual band 802.11ac Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.2 LE, GPS and NFC for connectivity. It has 4GB of RAM and a choice of 64GB or 128GB of storage space.

On the front is a 24MP sensor on the front with f/2.0 aperture and 3D facial recognition support. Two of the colour variants have a dual-tone colour of blue and pink and in the images at least, looks pretty fantastic. The phone has a notched display with a thin chin at the bottom, which houses the under-the-glass fingerprint scanner.

Honor 10 is already available SIM-free on plenty of retailers, including Carphone Warehouse, Amazon, John Lewis and Honors own online store. It comes with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage.

Honor 10, such as its top notch sibling, includes a dual back camera installation using a mixture a 16-megapixel main f/1.8 sensor plus a 24-megapixel secondary monochrome sensor. There is also a dedicated NPU for processing the AI tasks. Of course, it is assisted by AI - it has 22 modes for different objects and scenes and adapts in real time. "They are our inspiration, and the reason we created the Honor 10, with its AI photography features and exquisite design". The Honor 10 features a 5.84-inch fullHD+ (2280 x 1080) display, while a 3,400mAh battery is also included in the package, along with fast charging.
