Honor 10 launched: Watch unboxing and first impressions

Honor 10, the flagship smartphone from the Huawei sub-brand was unveiled globally at an event in London.

The Honor 10 features 128GB of inbuilt storage, not expandable via microSD card. This camera can also be used for face-unlock, but it's nowhere as sophisticated as the one on the iPhone X. It is powered by Huawei's in-house Kirin 970 processor that packs in its own dedicated Neural Processing Unit (NPU) for enabling dedicated AI functions inside the Honor 10. The smartphone features the trendy notched display at the top but retains a chin at the bottom to adjust the fingerprint scanner. It runs Android 8.1 Oreo-based EMUI 8.1 interface and is powered by a 3400mAh battery with support for Fast Charging. The Honor 10 may be the fourth phone from the Chinese brand's stables to have the Kirin 970 SoC, but for Honor and the Honor 10, it can be said that it's the boldest manifestation of the brand's AI-first vision.

There are also several launch offers for Honor 10.

The front-facing fingerprint sensor on this device is placed under the glass, not under the display.


Interestingly the dual camera flagship will feature new namesakes for its finishes, with Phantom Blue and Glacier Grey being the United Kingdom colour options. The most striking element on the front of the Honor 10, however, is the large 5.84-inch FHD+ 19:9 FullView Display.

I'm a little less enamoured with the software, however, which I cover in detail on the next page of this Honor 10 review. Talking about the cameras, there is a 16MP RGB sensor and a 24MP Monochrome sensor on the rear with dual f/1.8 aperture and CAF autofocus. "That's what we work hard for everyday at Honor".

The battery meanwhile is 3,400mAh in both phones, which, given their similar specs, may well lead to similar life. The rear camera modules are 24-megapixel and 16-megapixel respectively, while the front camera ups the game with an impressive 24-megapixel sensor. Honor claims the phone's AI technology can identify more than 500 distinct shooting scenarios across 22 categories, allowing it to intelligently apply camera settings to each shot. And oh, the Honor 10 has a headphone jack. The AI and the setup together facilitate features like 3D Portrait Lighting and HDR.

The Honor 10 is exclusive to the Three UK network on pay monthly advanced plans from £31 per month for 4GB of data or £40 per month for 30GB of data, with no upfront handset costs, or on Pay As You Go - available in Three stores or online from Thursday 17May. The exchange offer is valid till May 18.
