Honor, which is a sub-brand of Huawei, revealed the launch date from their official Weibo account, describing the Honor V10 as being set to offer “forward pumping AI speed revolution”.
Clearly the exact details have been lost in transnational, but the post suggests the Honor V10 will come porting some form or AI capabilities, likely a virtual assistant in a similar vein to the Google Assistant and Samsung’s Bixby.
Full details will be revealed in a matter of weeks, but so far various leaks have painted a fairly clear picture of what we can expect from the Honor V10.
It will very likely feature a 5.9-inch display that does away with the bezels found in older Honor handsets, and will adopt the 18:9 aspect ratio that’s becoming popular with phones sporting edge-to-edge screens.
Under the hood, the Honor V10 is expected to have the latest Kirin 970 octa-core chip paired with 6GB of RAM. On-board storage is predicted to start at 64GB and go up to 128GB.
Android 8.0 Oreo is likely to be the underlying operating system with Honor adding the EMUI 6.0 skin on top.
Such a spec would appear to make the Honor V10 more of a flagship hunting phone rather than a mid-tier to budget handset that previous Honor phones have been. So like the OnePlus 5, the Honor V10 could be seen as solid alternatives to the likes of the Pixel 2 XL and Galaxy S8.
With an asking price expected around £350 to £400, the Honor V10 would certainly offer solid specifications at a much cheaper price than the current crop of flagship phones. However, we’ll have to wait and see it the Honor V10 gets a UK release, as there’s still a good change it will stick to Easter shores and its homeland of China.
