Honor View 10 hands-on preview: Flagship killer killer?

Huawei's Honor 7X India launch: Check out specs, price and features

On paper, the Honor View 10 will look very similar to many of you as it's essentially a rebadged Mate 10 Pro from Honor's sister-brand Huawei (which we gave 5-stars in our review). There's also a dedicated AI engine which is responsible for scrutinising scenes in real-time for automatically adjusting the camera settings.Honor has apparently partnered with Microsoft and thus the Microsoft Translators use the AI engine. The V10 will be launched in India soon and dates are yet to be announnced.

There's also a gesture trigger option so you can take selfies simply by waving your hand in front of the camera.

As for the specifications, the Honor 7X gets the 5.93-inch full HD+ LCD display sporting a resolution of 2160x1080 pixels. With what appears to be a capable SoC, Honor has paired 4 GB RAM and 64 GB internal storage variants, all of which comes with expandable memory (up to 256 GB).

The Shenzen-based OEM revealed that the phablet-sized Honor View 10 will come to selected countries, including the US, UK, India, and across Europe, from January 8th.

In terms of performance, the Honor V10 is powered by an Octa-Core Huawei Kirin 970 processor coupled with Mali-G72 MP12 GPU.




The Honor 7X will compete with Xiaomi Mi A1 at the higher end of the budget smartphone segment. It looks about the same as the panel featured in the recently unveiled Honor 7X, only a hair larger.

These are just our first impressions with the Honor 7X, since we haven't used it for long, we are saving the rest of our thoughts for the full review, which will be out shortly. Indeed, this is Honor's flagship smartphone with its flagship chipset inside.

Like its predecessor, the Honor 7X aims to be an affordable dual-camera phone, so it includes a 16-megapixel+2-megapixel combo on the back.

On the inside, a middle-range Kirin 695 processor keeps the lights on on board of the device, aided by 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage. The secondary sensor adds depth information to the images. It also comes with 4GB of RAM and a 3,340mAh battery that should last more than one day on a single charge, the company says. It significantly enhances the security of "face unlock" and the vitality of face reconstruction, enables new virtual reality and augmented reality applications such as facial animation and small object reconstruction. But importantly, the Honor View 10's battery supports Huawei's Super Charge fast charging technology (22.5W), which means it's able to charge from 0 to 50 percent in half an hour.
