Huawei’s sub-brand Honor will be debuting the Honor 10 flagship phone in London on May 15. However, the company will be debuting it first in China on April 19. Well-known tipster Roland Quandt has released some press renders of the Honor 10 smartphone. Also, he has revealed some information on the specifications of the upcoming Honor flagship.’
Quandt claims that the Honor 10 will be available in colors like Black, Teal and a special Bluish-pink variant that shows off a different shade depending on the viewing angle. The rear panel of the phone is made out of glass and it features an aluminum frame. It measures 7.7mm in height and it weighs 153 grams.
The Honor 10 borrows its design from the Huawei P20 flagship phone. Like the Huawei P20, the Honor 10 features a notched screen and a fingerprint scanner enabled home button on the bottom bezel. The only noticeable design change on the Honor 10 is that it features a horizontally arranged dual camera setup instead of the vertical dual camera found on the P20.
The Honor 10 has a 5.84-inch IPS LTPS LCD display that the supports 2280 x 1080 pixels. The screen is laid under a layer of 2.5D glass. The tipster claims that the handset is equipped with 20-megapixel + 24-megapixel dual camera setup, but its TENAA listing had revealed that it features 16-megapixel + 24-megapxiel dual rear cameras. The dual-tone LED flash is positioned besides the dual camera module. Like predecessor models, the Honor 10 lacks Leica branding for its dual rear shooters.
Unlike the main camera, the Honor 10 features the same 24-megapixel front facing camera that can be found on the Huawei P20 series phones. The frontal camera will bear AI capabilities. The TENAA listing of the Honor 10 has suggested that it could be fueled by the NPU enabled Kirin 970 SoC that powers the Honor V10, Huawei P20 and Mate 10 series. Depending on the market, the Honor 10 will be available with 4 GB RAM + 64 GB storage or 6 GB RAM + 128 GB storage. It does not feature a microSD card slot.
The Honor 10 will be running on Android 8.1 Oreo that will be overlaid with Emotion UI 8.1. It will be equipped with a 3,320mAh battery like the Huawei P20. Quandt has not revealed any information on its pricing, but the Chinese media is speculating that 4 GB RAM + 64 GB storage and 6 GB RAM + 64 GB storage and 6 GB RAM + 128 GB storage variants would be respectively priced at 2,499 Yuan (~$398), 2,899 Yuan (~$461) and 3,399 Yuan (~$541). This shows that the Honor 10 will be cheaper than the P20. This could be because it includes a cheaper display and eMMC memory.
