Huawei has been pretty busy in releasing flagships this year. With already done releasing two flagships a month ago, Huawei doesn’t seem to slow down: it has come up with another smartphone — V10. The device has borrowed many key features from both the Mate 10 and Mate 10 Pro while keeping itself a mid-range phone.
Not as low as the lower-end Honor 7X, of course, but you get an impressive phone in exchange for 2,999 yuan. That’s approx $455, it’s not even the official price tag of the “entry-level” 4/64GB configuration.
Instead, you’re looking at 64GB storage and 6GB RAM here, as well as a Kirin 970 SoC with a built-in NPU (Neural-Network Processing Unit). Both the rear and front-facing cameras on the Honor V10 are improved by artificial intelligence, and though they’re not Leica-endorsed, their specs look pretty impressive on paper.
Placed horizontally near the top of an evenly arched back, the V10’s main imaging setup consists of 16 and 20MP sensors with f/1.8 aperture. The single 13MP selfie shooter seems capable too, featuring f/2.0 aperture and leveraging various AI tricks.
Not as stunning as the recently-released Mate 10 duo, the Honor V10 borrowed the design direction of its premium predecessors while sporting the 5.99-inch FHD+ screen bezels. Still, there’s enough space for a fingerprint scanner, as well as a headphone jack on a 7 mm thin device including a 3750mAh battery.
After its launch in China, people are now waiting to see the low-price device in Western markets soon.
