Today in London, Huawei announced the Honor View 10, a new flagship device from the company that will be offered alongside the more budget-friendly Honor 7X. The handset was first shown off in China, but now the company has confirmed more specifics, along with availability for different regions.
The View 10, or V10, contains the new in-house Kirin 970 chipset, which includes a Neural Processing Unit (NPU), similar to what's found in the Huawei Mate 10 and Mate 10 Pro. That means that you'll see a lot of the same features, such as the ability for the camera to know what it's looking at, such as if it's a plant, flowers, the sky, a dog, or a cat. There's also a custom-built Microsoft Translator application.
That camera is a dual-lens 16MP + 20MP configuration with an f/1.8 aperture and phase detect autofocus, so you'll be able to take great photos quickly. One of the lenses is monochrome, which helps with creating a depth effect.
The V10 also comes with 6GB RAM, 128GB of storage, and a 3,750mAh battery with Honor SuperCharge technology that can get you 50% battery in 30 minutes. The handset will arrive on January 8 in select markets, such as the UK, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, India, Malaysia, Russia, and the US. There's no information about pricing, but given Honor's tendency toward value and the high-end specs, it should be interesting to see.
