Honor has just launched its new flagship in India, following its launch in London which took place yesterday. It's a notch that has more in common with that of its sort-of cousin the Huawei P20, though, in that it's less obtrusive than the iPhone X's trend-starter.
The Honor 10 24MP+16MP dual-lens AI camera was developed and supported by the NPU processor in the Kirin 970 chipset, which means it recognizes 500+ scenarios in 22 categories in real-time. Like other models today, it comes with features such as AI beautification, Pro mode, and AR lenses.
Due to the fact that in the flagship smartphone Huawei Honor 10 it was made a decision to establish a "unibrow" (a kind of cutout in the top of the screen), the aspect ratio of its display is non-standard 19 to 9. The smartphone has a forward facing fingerprint sensor, which is embedded under the glass, which uses Qualcomm's ultrasonic technology to offer seemless design. Up front, it sports a 24MP front-facing camera with f/2.0 aperture. The device is fueled by the Kirin 970 64-bit octa-core processor, which is Huawei's most powerful chip out there at the moment. If that wasn't enough, Honor's choice of colours for the Honor 10, Phantom Blue and Midnight Black, is crazier still.
The Huawei Mate RS will come with a cool price tag of RM6,999 and if that will not leave a dent in your wallet, you will have to act fast as there will be only 200 units in Malaysia when it arrives on 18 May 2018.
Talking about the specifications, Honor 10 runs on runs EMUI 8.1 based on Android 8.1 Oreo operating system.
The Huawei P20 has a 5.84 inch IPS LCD display with FhD+ 2280 x 1080px resolution offering a 432ppi. The main camera is capable of recording native 4k videos at 30fps and can also shoot slow-motion 720p videos at 960fps. It has dual SIM support, NFC, Bluetooth 4.2, a USB-C port, and a 3.5mm audio jack. In the memory department, the variant launched in India includes 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage. Additionally, there are other offers like no cost EMI on Bajaj Finserv cards valid on May 16 only.
Also, Honor 10 new Aurora design makes the phone looks shiny and the colors on the back case are astonishing, without any doubt. There's also 10 per cent instant discount with Axis Bank Credit and Debit Cards which is also applicable on EMI transactions, and a Jio Offer which includes Rs 1,200 cashback plus 100GB additional data plus benefit of Rs 3,300 worth partners voucher.
