Honor 10 launched globally - Here's all you need to know

Honor 10 Will Go Official in India Today as a Flipkart Exclusive

According to Honor, the Honor 10 is available starting today in Europe. That said, the design inclination of the flagship smartphone is more towards the recently Huawei P20, rather than the Honor 9.

The screen will be 5.8-inches with a resolution of 2240 x 1080 pixels. Also, a 24MP front cam. It features a dual-rear camera setup with 16-megapixel+24-megapixel sensors, LED flash, autofocus, and f/1.8 aperture. It is powered by the octa-core HiSilicon Kirin 970 SoC (four Cortex-A73 cores clocked at 2.36GHz and four Cortex-A53 cores clocked at 1.8GHz) coupled with 6GB of RAM.

The Honor 10 is powered by a 3400mAh battery - the same size as the battery of the standard Huawei P20. Also, in case you don't know, the phone launched today in India as well via Flipkart. For starters, this isn't as fancy as any under-display fingerprint sensor but is surely faster and more accurate than most other widely used sensors in the market.

This isn't like in-display scanners we've seen on some phones, like the new VIVO X20 Plus concept device, but it does mean the sensor doesn't interrupt the clean lines of the Honor 10.

Under the hood, you'll find the same AI-equipped Kirin 970 chip that powers the Huawei P20 and Mate 10 Pro, backed up by 6GB RAM and either 64GB or 128GB built-in storage, expandable up to 256GB via microSD.

In 1996, his legs were amputated just below the knee after he was diagnosed with lymphoma, a form of blood cancer. Everest has become a lucrative business, with foreigners paying Dollars 11,000 for a permit to summit.

Again, like Huawei's recent flagships, EMUI 8.1 is present, meaning you get a neat, pared-down Android experience, that's probably about as close as you can get to Android One without it being Android One. The company has also chosen only to launch two colour variants in the country - Midnight Black and Phantom Blue. Qualcomm's ultrasonic solution allows OEMs to implement a fingerprint sensor under display, glass, or metal. Watch this unboxing and first impressions video for more. Once launched, the new Honor 10 will be pitted against the likes of Xiaomi Mi Mix 2 and the forthcoming OnePlus 6.

In some markets you'll be able to buy the Honor 10 from May 15.

Connectivity options include Bluetooth v4.2, Wi-Fi 802.11ac, GPS/ A-GPS, NFC, 4G VoLTE, USB Type-C, and a 3.5mm headphone jack.

The handsets will be available in black, teal and blue and each featuring a glass back. The device, however, does not support memory expansion.

The frontside camera has 3D face recognition and works with "studio lighting effects" with a "range of lighting conditions".
