Honor's View 10 Is the New Flagship Killer

Adjust Comment Print

The company's sub-brand Honor launched its budget smartphone Honor 7X along with its flagship smartphone Honor View 10 in India recently. The smartphone will also hit the US, but the pricing and the availability is not known yet.

The Kirin 970 chipset on Honor V10 has a dedicated Neural Processing Unit (NPU) for AI related tasks. So, let's recap. What is the Honor View 10? What is this AI thing that makes the View 10 so special?

The most mysterious part of the View 10 is the "AI".

The View 10 can recognize 13 different photo scenes - everything from portraits to food to cats and dogs - and adjust camera settings on the fly.

The rear camera setup on the Honor View 10 sports two sensors - one 16-megapixel RGB sensor and the other a 20-megapixel monochrome sensor, complete with an f/1.8 aperture, PDAF, dual-LED flash. We've seen the leaked images and information beforehand.

The Honor Band A2 comes with a vibrant 0.96-inch Multi-touch screen OLED display, which is the largest in its class, giving users a more convenient and smoother touch, along with prominent features such as lift-to-wake and lower-to-sleep. I've tested the translation features in Google's Pixel Buds, and I've been impressed by how seamless it is, though you need a wireless connection to use that feature. If the reports are anything to go by, the rebranded Honor View 10 goes on sales in India alongside debuts in the US. The Sync Play feature uses NFC to connect multiple View 10s, effectively turning them into a speaker system that plays the same song simultaneously. Besides being the company's first smartphone with two set of dual-cameras, the device was also Honor's first to come with a FullView display.

To recall, the smartphone was launched in China in December a year ago. The fingerprint on the Honor 9 Lite is placed on the rear. At vMall Honor's community of digital natives can benefit from a unified, official shopping platform and all the best that Honor and Huawei have to offer, along with a number of exciting and exclusive added customer benefits. The colors in which the smartphone is available are Midnight Black and Navy Blue color variants.

I'm going to go on a limb here and say that the Honor 7X is better still in red.
