Honor V10 launched globally, goes on sale in January
The Honor V10 was launched a few days and has finally made its way over to the US. The V10, effectively an Honor flagship, seeks to offer specifications similar to the Mate 10 flagships at a significantly lower price point.
There were fears that the V10 would not be launched in the US, as the Honor 9 that was released earlier in the year skipped the trip. That's not to be the case, though, as the company announced at the launch event in London that the device will make its way across the globe to the United Kingdom, France, Germany, Italy, and Spain, India, Malaysia, Russia, and the United States.
And for a quick rundown of what to expect from the V10.
- 5.99-inch 2160x1080 display
- 157 mm x 74.98 mm x 6.97 mm (LxWxT), 172g weight
- Kirin 970
- Mali-G72 GPU
- 6 GB of RAM, 128 GB of storage
- Dual rear cameras (16 MP + 20 MP), F/1.8 aperture (4k recording at 30fps)
- 13 MP selfie shooter (1080p recording at 30fps)
- 3750 mAh battery
- Honor SuperCharge (0-50% in 30 minutes)
- EMUI 8.0, based on Android 8.0 Oreo
- Bluetooth BT4.2: Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE), aptX, aptX HD
- USB 2.0
The V10 looks to be a cheaper replica of the Mate 10 devices. It offers nigh-identical features, with the major differences being slightly more rounded edges, a lack of Leica branded optics and OIS, and a slightly smaller battery. The price tag—500 Euros in the EU, and 450 GBP in the UK—counters most of those flaws, though, making the V10 one of the best bang-for-buck flagship picks in the world right now, alongside, perhaps, the OnePlus 5T, Samsung Galaxy S8, and the Nokia 8.
The V10 will go on sale starting January 8, 2018, and will be available in color options of Navy Blue or Midnight Black.
Here are its connectivity specifications.
