Huawei Honor V10 finally became official today, as a phablet with a powerful Kirin 970 CPU inside and a dual camera. The machine starts at $410 and comes in a beautiful shade of red or blue. The device borrows from the design of the Mate 10 and Mate 10 Pro a bit and brings an 18:9 display and dual camera at the back.
The Honor V10 somehow manages to offer a flagship CPU in quite an affordable package. It’s got a 5.99 inch IPS LCD display upfront, with a 2160 x 1080 pixel resolution. It should be available in 4 GB RAM or 6 GB RAM version, with 64 or 128 GB of storage. There’s also a microSD card slot and a 3750 mAh battery with fast charge. There’s no Leica action for the dual back camera, which features a 16 MP + 20 MP sensor combo.
The 20 MP one is a monochrome cam with F/1.8 aperture and the other one is the color sensor. We don’t get optical stabilization here and selfies are taken with a 13 MP camera with F/2.0 aperture and something that feels like Huawei’s own version of the Animoji. Basically you can create emojis animated with your face as the starting point and send them to friends.
Huawei Honor V10 goes for $410 in the 4 GB RAM, 64 GB version and $450 if you want 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage. Color choices are Aurora Blue, Beach Gold, Night Black and Charm Red. Android 8.0 is the OS of choice here, with EMUI 8.0 on top and availability starts on December 5th at Chinese stores like Huawei Mall, Jingdong and more.
