The phone was expected to be called the Honor 9 Pro or as per its usual naming conventions, but the company have chosen View 10 thanks to its similarities to the Huawei Mate 10 Pro. The smartphone will be available on Amazon.in and Honor online store from 7th December. The View 10 was launched as the V10 in China in November.
"Honor View 10 marks the beginning of a new AI era, enabling a productive, entertaining and fun lifestyle for users", he added. There is no waterproofing here, unfortunately, which is not that surprising, when you think of the price of the Honor 7X, but it would have been a nice surprise. In fact, the Xiaomi Mi A1 comes close to this device but gives out on the display, due to its older 16:9 aspect ratio display. So, what do you think about the Honor 7x? On board is the Kirin 659 processor, 4GB RAM and 64GB storage (expandable to 256GB).
Honor is making a big focus on budget devices at present and it looks like the Honor 7X might end up being the favourite budget phone of the year. Connectivity options in the smartphone include 4G LTE, VoLTE, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth, GPS, and sadly, it still has a micro USB port and not a USB Type-C port. The phone will run on Android 7.0 Nougat along with Huawei's EMUI 5.1.
When it comes to looks, the Honor 7x is the best looking phone of the three, though each of them has a metal backplate and they also possesses nearly the same connectivity ports and buttons, with the presence of a hybrid SIM slot. At the time, Honor didn't specify USA launch details, but this morning at a press event, Honor provided all the nitty gritty, confirming that the Honor 7X is available today, priced at $199. Once again, it was deja vu in today's launch presentation, where Honor president George Zhao talked up the chip's AI motion detection features, which it's claimed can reduce motion blur with moving subjects.
The new Kirin 970 features an octa-core ARM Cortex CPU and a first-to-market Mali-G72 12-core GPU. Indeed, this is Honor's flagship smartphone with its flagship chipset inside. It comes with 32GB, 64GB, and 128GB of internal storage...
The View 10 Pro's cameras have an AI engine that offers Real-Time Scene and Object Recognition functionality, which means they can automatically choose the best camera settings for any environment. The View 10 will also get an exclusive Face Unlock feature, which looks similar to the OnePlus 5T's implementation as it simply relies on a standard front-facing camera, can not see in 3D, and is not secure enough to be used to authenticate payments. The secondary monochrome sensor captures depth information for bokeh effect. With a unique Internet-powered business model and exceptional product portfolios delivering uncompromised value, Honor is replicating its successful business model in other countries across the globe.
The battery is slightly smaller (3,750mAh vs 4,000mAh), but the View 10 still features fast charging, to quickly replenish battery life.
