Huawei is reportedly planning to launch its next Honor branded smartphone dubbed the Honor V10 in the UK, on December 5. According to a report by Gizchina, the V10 will be launched as a watered down version of the Huawei Mate 10. The Honor V10 is said to feature a 5.99-inch Univisium display and sport a near bezel-less design.
According to the report, the Honor V10 could be powered by the company’s own Kirin 970 SoC, which is the same chipset powering the Mate 10 and Mate 10 Pro. The Kirin 970 uses a dedicated Neural Processing Unit for handling AI related tasks. The smartphone is expected to feature 6GB of RAM and come with 64GB or 128GB options for onboard storage. The smartphone will reportedly come with a 16MP+20MP rear dual-camera setup and run Huawei’s EMUI 6.0 Android skin on top of Android 8.0 Oreo.
The V10 could also support fast charging and is expected to be priced around $452 (Rs 29,300 approx, directly converted). The above stated specs are not confirmed yet and should be taken with a pinch of salt.
Honor has recently announced that it will be launching its Honor 7X smartphone in India by this December. The Company’s Global President, George Zhao has said that more of their upcoming smartphones will start including AI capabilities.
