After launching Honor View10 in China last month, the company has now announced that the smartphone will be available in India from January 8, 2018. Along with India, the phone will also be made available in France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Russia, UK, and the United States on January 8.
This was announced at a launch event in London, where the company also launched Honor 7X for the Indian market. In India, the Honor View10 will be available in two colour options — Navy Blue and Midnight Black. While the company has announced the availability details, it has not yet revealed the pricing information.
The smartphone comes with a metal body design and features a 5.99-inch Full HD+ display with 18:9 aspect ratio and a screen resolution of 2160 x 1440 pixels. It is powered by the company’s own Kirin 970 processor, which has a dedicated NPU and brings a ton of AI features. Honor claims that the View10 is the “first AI smartphone”.
The device packs 6GB RAM and 128GB internal storage and comes with an option for storage expansion up to 256GB using a microSD card. The smartphone features dual rear cameras with f/1.8 aperture — one is a 16-megapixel RGB sensor and while the other is a 20-megapixel monochrome sensor. On the front, there is a 13-megapixel camera sensor.
Even though the Honor View10 comes with narrow bezels, there is a front-mounted fingerprint scanner. Connectivity options on the device include Dual SIM, 4G VoLTE, NFC, Bluetooth 4.2, 3.5mm audio jack, Wi-Fi, GPS and USB-C port.
The phone comes with facial recognition for authentication. According to the company, the feature is smart enough to detect when someone else is using the smartphone and hides calls and messages.
It runs Android 8.0 Oreo operating system with the company’s own EMUI 8.0 over the top. The phone is powered by a 3,750mAh battery which comes with the support for fast charging via Huawei’s 5V/4.5A SuperCharge technology. The company claims that the phone gets 50 percent charge in 30 minutes and a single charge is good enough to deliver 23 hours of talk time on 3G, and 22 days of standby time.
