Huawei’s Honor V10 Smartphone has recorded over 250,000 registrations just a few hours after it was launched with much fanfare at an event held in Beijing.While this may sound like a sign of good start forHuawei, it should be noted however that these are just registration numbers and not pre-bookings. The device alongside with the Honor 7X is meant to officially go on sale from December 5th in China, the same date we are expected to hear more about a more global launch of the V10.
The Honor V10 takes advantage of one 2017 best feature on smartphones by slimming down its bezels and adopting an 18:9 “FullView” display. With slim bezels on either side, the Honor V10 retained a considerate amount of bezels on the top and bottom chin to house the selfie camera and a front-facing fingerprint scanner.
The device has a 5.99-inch 2:1 display with a resolution of 1080 x 2160 and powered by Huawei’s latest Kirin 970 processor. You can get the device in either 4GB or 6GB of RAM with 64GB or 128GB of expandable storage. There is also a variant with a 6GB+128GB memory configuration.
Just above the display is a 13MP selfie camera with Huawei’new facial recognition technology and a LED flash, while below the display is home to a physical home button which doubles as a fingerprint scanner.
On the flip side, you will see a dual-camera setup: a 16-megapixel RGB sensor and a 20-megapixel monochrome sensor. The device runs on latest Google’s Android 8.0 Oreo OS with Huawei’s EMUI 8.0 skin, while it is powered by a 3,750mAh battery which the maker claims can be charged from 0% to 50% in just 30 minutes.
It will be available in stores from Dec 5th in Aurora Blue, Beach Gold, Charm Red and Night Black color options.
The Honor V10 pricing starts at 2,699 Yuan (~$409) for the 4 GB RAM + 64 GB variant, 2,999 Yuan (~$454) for the 6 GB RAM + 64 variant and 3,499 Yuan (~$530) for the 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB variant.
