Unboxing The Honor 10

Unboxing The Honor 10

The Honor 10 India launch offers include an additional Rs. 5,000 off over the regular exchange value for all Honor smartphones, as well as select other devices. This means it can reflect light differently depending on how you view it, and as a result, it can have this insane psychedelic effect on your eyes. The Honor 10 which is essentially a souped up Honor View 10 takes major design and hardware cues from Huawei's top-tier P20, bringing top-tier design and hardware to the masses. Additionally, it receives a 24-megapixel selfie shot and anticipate Honor to discuss brand new AI capabilities baked to the machine UI. The phone has a notched display with a thin chin at the bottom, which houses the under-the-glass fingerprint scanner. It's also a less essential addition since the Honor 10 has a reliable face unlock feature, which lets you open the phone simply by looking at it after registering your identity to it. That's a trick the Huawei P20 doesn't manage, despite costing more. It measures 149.6x71.2x7.7mm and weighs 153 grams. It's slightly heavier though, at 165g to the Honor 10's 153g. Qualcomm's sensors are also said to be able to work when wet or greasy, unlike the more conservative sensors seen in phones today. The Honor 10 sports a 5.84-inch LCD display with Full HD+ resolution of 2280 x 1080 pixels and taller 19:9 aspect ratio.

Max brightness levels don't match the quoted 1000 nits brightness of LG's flagship G7 ThinQ and the Honor 10 isn't Mobile HDR certified.

To judge the actual quality of the Honor 10's screen we'll have to look beyond specs, so keep an eye out for that in our full review, but the Huawei P20's screen impressed us. That's a high-end chipset, so you can expect solid performance from either phone.

The incident happened on Saturday morning with Moreira later dying in hospital from his injuries. Moreira's first bullet did not hit any victims and his gun locked during the second.

There will be two versions of the Honor 10 available, one with 64GB of storage for £349 and a 128GB model for £399. In software terms, the phone will run on Huawei's custom EMUI 8.1 skin which is based on Android 8.1 Oreo.

There's a bit more of a difference in their cameras, though still a lot of similarities. The premium smartphone comes with dual rear camera setup comprising one 24MP and another 16MP sensor. This majorly includes scene and object recognition. It comes with a Fingerprint sensor on the back. There is an 8MP front-facing camera with LED flash, f/2.0 aperture. Notably, the phone has dual-sim support in addition to the expandable memory card slot, so no more compromises there.

The Indian price will be clear once the phone will be launch in India, possibly until the next Tuesday we will get more details on the phone. The phone comes with a Type-C connector, Bluetooth 4.2 and aptX for audio. Honor India has sent out media invites for a launch event on May 22nd, where the company will introduce Honor 7C in India. Is it just a "fragile P20", as a user commented during the launch?
