Honor has taken the wraps off two new phones -the Honor View 10 and Honor 7X in Europe. The former is the same device as the Honor V10 unveiled in China last week while the Honor 7X is, well, the Honor 7X released 2 months ago in China.
Honor View 10
The Honor View 10 is a flagship device just like the Mate 10 Pro, packing nearly the same specs but with a cheaper price tag. It has a 5.99” FHD+ display with an 18:9 aspect ratio and is powered by the Kirin 970 processor, which has a dedicated NPU and brings a ton of AI features to the View 10.
The View 10 comes in a single 6GB RAM + 128GB ROM variant for Europe with the option for storage expansion (256GB max.). Like the Honor V10, it also features dual rear cameras. One is a 16MP RGB sensor and the other is a 20MP monochrome sensor. For the front camera, there is a 13MP sensor.
The Honor View 10 has a front-mounted fingerprint scanner even with its 18:9 display. There is NFC, Bluetooth 4.2, 3.5mm audio jack and a USB-C port. The phone has a dual SIM slot with support for Dual 4G and Dual VoLTE modes.
Battery capacity for the phone is 3750mAh with support for fast charging via Huawei’s 5V/4.5A SuperCharge technology. The View 10 measures 157 x 74.98 x 6.97mm and weighs 172g. It is thinner than the Galaxy Note 8 (8.6mm) and the iPhone X (7.7mm) both of which have smaller batteries.

The Honor 7X on the other hand is a mid-ranger but also features interesting specs at an affordable price.
It has a 5.93” FHD+ 18:9 display, 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage. It is powered by the Kirin 659 processor and has support for storage expansion (256GB max.).
