Honor V10 is an upcoming flagship phone that is slated to get announced on Dec. 5 in London, U.K. An official launch invitation that has been shared on Honor’s Weibo account reveals that the company would be debuting the Honor V10 in Beijing, China on Nov. 28 before introducing it in London.

The above launch invitation shows that the Honor V10 will not only feature dual cameras but also it will be enabled with AI capabilities. Previous reports have revealed that the 16-megapixel + 20-megapixel dual camera setup arriving on V10 will not have Leica branding.

Honor CEO Zhao Ming has recently confirmed that the Honor V10 will be powered by Kirin 970 and it will be running on EMUI 8.0 flavored Android 8.0 Oreo. The Kirin 970 that features a dedicated NPU unit for handling AI is the same chipset that powers the Huawei Mate 10 and Mate 10 Pro.

The Honor V10 is rumored to feature a 6-inch display by BOE. The screen is expected to deliver an aspect ratio of 18:9. The Mate 10 Pro also features an 18:9 aspect ratio supporting 6-inch display. Since the smartphone will be coming with a full screen design, the fingerprint scanner will be placed on its rear side.

It is expected to arrive in variants such as 6 GB RAM + 64 GB storage and 8 GB RAM + 128 GB storage. Like the Mate 10 Pro, the Honor V10 is also speculated to house a 4,000mAh battery that will carry support for 22.5W rapid charging.

Since the Honor V10 borrows a lot of features from the Mate 10 Pro, it is expected to arrive as a toned-down version of the Mate 10 Pro. However, it is yet to be confirmed whether it will be featuring a 3.5mm headphone jack or IP67 resistance.  The Mate 9 Pro came with a metallic body, but the Mate 10 Pro that features a full screen deign is equipped with a glass + metal chassis. Since Honor’s “V” series phones have also always featured metallic body, the V10 may not feature a glass and metal combination chassis.
