Huawei announced at CES this year that it would be bringing its Honor 7X and Honor View 10 phones to the US. Now we know when to expect the View 10: March 23rd, with preorders opening today for $499.
The Honor View 10 (aka the V10) has similar specs to Huawei’s flagship Mate 10 Pro. It’s got the same Kirin 970 processor, although there’s a slightly worse 16-megapixel camera (along with a second, monochrome 20-megapixel shooter), a slightly smaller 3,750mAh battery, and an LCD instead of an OLED display. There’s also 6GB of RAM, 128GB of storage, a bezel-reducing design, a 3.5mm headphone jack, and the latest version of Android 8.1 Oreo. Not bad for a $500 phone.
As for the 7X, it’s been around in the US for a bit already, with a lower spec US variant that shared the 7X name launching in February, and a more powerful version with more RAM and storage akin to the international model, rebranded as the Huawei Mate SE, released last week.
