Honor, Huawei’s lower-cost sub-brand, has announced its latest flagship phone: the Honor 10. Building on the solid View 10 and taking some cues from the impressive Huawei P20, the Honor 10 is the first Honor phone to really look like a high-end 2018 device.
Which is to say that yes, it has a notch. But like the P20, it also has an eye-catching iridescent finish and an all-glass body. There’s a fingerprint sensor below the screen, which is a 5.84-inch 1080p LCD with a tall aspect ratio, and the bottom edge of the phone houses a USB-C port and a headphone jack.
The processor is the same AI-equipped Kirin 970 chip seen in the Huawei Mate 10 Pro, the P20, and the View 10. As for the cameras, there's a 24-megapixel sensor on the front for hi-res selfies, while the rear of the phone has a 16-megapixel and 24-megapixel dual setup with f/1.6 lenses.
The Honor 10 will go on sale on April 27th in China at 2599 yuan ($414) for a model with 6GB of RAM and 64GB of storage, or 2999 yuan ($478) to up the storage to 128GB. Pricing and availability for India, Europe, the US, or other regions is yet to be announced.
