Huawei announced the Honor View10 back in December, but today, the company is announcing U.S. availability of the device. Beginning today, you can pre-order the premium handset for $499, and it will begin shipping on March 22.
For that price, the Honor View10 packs quite a punch. It includes the Kirin 970 processor that was previously found in the Mate 10 Pro, which means that it has better camera performance, battery life, and more. The Kirin 970 includes a Neural Processing Unit (NPU), allowing the device to see what the camera is looking at and adjust settings accordingly, and adjust power settings according to how you use the device.
For $499, you also get 6GB RAM, and 128GB of internal storage, which is plenty of room for apps, photos, videos, and anything else. It comes with a 13MP front camera, and a 16MP/20MP dual-lens rear camera. In fact, while the View10 is similar to the Huawei Mate 10 in many ways, it's $300 cheaper with one of the few differences being the lack of Leica cameras on the View10.
"Positive feedback from media give us the confidence that the Honor View10 will deliver beyond what is expected at this price," said Zack Zhang, vice president of Honor USA. "Honor is focused on exploring what U.S. consumers want and adapting each step of the way. We believe the Honor View10 will be a game changer in North America."
