Honor 10 launches as the company’s flagship of 2018

Its camera tech is similar to the AI software found in Google's Pixel phones

The Honor 10 has finally made its way to the UAE. Honor is a brand of smartphones under Huawei that focuses on emerging markets with extremely competitive pricing and specs to match other flagship devices.

Honor 10: Closer look

The Honor 10 comes with a very sleek design and some high-end technology borrowed from its P-series cousins. It comes equipped with AI 2.0, which primarily powers the rear-mounted dual camera. A 3D glass back with nano-scale optical coating gives the Honor 10 a shimmering look that’s bound to catch your eye. The phone also features an entirely new colour option called Aurora, which is poised to be a “a true breakthrough in smartphone design”, says Chris Sun Baigong, Vice-President of Honor in the Middle East and Africa.

Honor 10: Key features

The Honor 10 comes equipped with a rear dual-lens camera measuring in at a whopping 24MP and 16MP. Its AI chipset will be powering the camera that will help it learn to take the best possible shots. The camera has the ability to recognise more than 500 scenarios in 22 categories in real-time. The technology is similar to the AI software that runs Google’s Pixel phones. Its front camera also clocks in at 24MP. This also makes use of the AI tech along with support for 3D facial recognition.

One of the first of its kind: the Honor 10 has placed a fingerprint sensor right under the display in the chin of the device. The screen is a 5.84-inch FHD+ with a 19:9 bezel-less ratio. Powered by an independently built NPU processor, the Honor 10 comes with 4GB RAM and 128GB built-in storage. Its battery supports Honor Super Charge and stores 3,400mAh, claiming to charge the device to 50 per cent within 25 minutes.

The Honor 10’s newest colour aurora is possible because of a design process involving 15 layers of 3D glass on the back that gives it the shine in multiple lighting scenarios. Along with aurora, you’ll be able to get the Honor 10 in phantom blue and phantom green.

You can get your hands on the Honor 10 for Dh1,699 from May 22 through Honor UAE’s website.
