Huawei’s sub-brand Honor has confirmed yesterday that the Honor 10 will be unveiled on April 19 in China. Today, a new image showing the rear panel of the Honor 10 has appeared on Weibo. It reveals that it could be the first Honor flagship phone to feature Leica branded dual cameras.
In the below image, the Honor 10 sporting a color gradient finish of blueish purple. The color gradient is different from the Twilight color option of the Huawei P20. The Honor 10 has a horizontally arranged dual camera module, but the P20 has a vertically arranged dual camera setup. The COL-AL10 model number can be seen at the bottom of the phone.
The rear panel of the Honor 10 seems to be made out of 3D glass and it could be sporting a metallic frame. The volume rocker and power key are present on the right edge (when viewed from front) of the phone. Since the fingerprint scanner is not available on the phone, it is likely to feature a frontal home button embedded fingerprint sensor like the Huawei P20. However, some rumors claim that it may feature under-display fingerprint sensor.
The leaked image has the text “Dual Lens 1:1.6/27 ASPH” mentioned on the top-right corner. The same text can be also found near the dual rear cameras of the Huawei Mate 10 and Mate 10 Pro from October 2017. Hence, the Honor 10 could sport the same dual cameras that can be found on Mate 10.
Huawei had introduced Leica branding for dual rear cameras starting from Huawei P9 series. However, the Honor flagships have never featured Leica cameras. Hence, like the predecessor Honor 9 phone, the Honor 10 may not camera SUMMILUX or Leica branding.
Rumors have it that it may feature a 5.8-inch screen that will be enabled with a notch. The Kirin 970 chipset is expected to power the Honor flagship. Also, it is rumored that the highest configuration variant of the phone may feature 256 GB of internal storage and 6 GB of storage. The launch poster of the phone confirms that it will be equipped with AI capabilities for photography.
As of this writing, there is no information available on the other specs and pricing of Honor 10. After getting unveiled on April 19 in China, the handset is confirmed to debut in London on May 15.
