Huawei’s sub-brand Honor today unveiled its latest flagship: the Honor 10. The handset has been unveiled in China, with a global unveiled scheduled for May 15 in London. The handset is based on the Huawei P20, though with some compromises to keep its price in check.
The Honor 10 comes with a 5.84-inch 19:9 aspect ratio display. Yes, there’s a notch just like on the P20, though it can be hidden if you are not fond of it. The fingerprint sensor is located at the bottom-bezel. Like previous Honor phones, the Honor 10 is also completely made of 2.5D glass, though it stands out in its primsa-like Mirage color finish which is similar to the Twilight color seen on the P20 Pro. The handset will be available in Mirage Purple, Mirage Blue, Black, and Grey colors.
On the front, we have a 5.84-inch FullView LCD display with a 2,280 x 1080 resolution, a 19:9 aspect ratio, and a notch cutout that houses a 24MP selfie camera. This is surrounded by 2.5D glass on both the front and rear of the phone over an aluminum frame. It also sports a thin fingerprint sensor on the front ‘chin’ bezel.
Honor 10 runs Android 8.1 Oreo out of the box wit EMUI 8.1 on top and packs a 3,400mAh battery, it also comes with 22.5W fast charging! Huawei claims the phone will charge to 50% in 25 minutes.
