HONOR V10 leak shows off near bezel-less display ahead of China launch
While we don’t have too long to wait until the next device from HUAWEI’s consumer-conscious, youth-focused brand officially breaks cover, a freshly leaked image spotted on Weibo has already given us a good look at the phone’s sleek design.
As expected, the HONOR V10 appears to adopt the slim-bezel design of HUAWEI’s recent Mate series devices to fit a rumored 5.99-inch “FullView” display with an 18:9 aspect ratio. If HUAWEI’s recent phones are anything to go by, the V10 is likely to output at a 2160 x 1080 resolution, or what the OEM likes to call “Full HD+”.
Recent leaks have suggested the HONOR V10 will pack a dual-camera on the rear (16 MP and 20 MP), which unfortunately isn’t visible in the leaked image. We can see the front-camera, however, which has been pegged as a selfie-friendly 13 MP sensor.
While there’s very little else to glean from the image, a set of documents that leaked earlier this month hinted that the V10 will pack HUAWEI’s bespoke Kirin 970 chipset backed by 6 GB of RAM and 64 GB or 128 GB of internal storage. There’s also a good chance the device will run EMUI 8.0 or 6.0, both of which are based on Android 8.0 Oreo.
All-in-all, the V10 sounds and (judging by the leaked image) looks every bit the part of a just-shy-of-flagship phone. The kicker will be the price and HONOR has a solid track record of offering premium specs for a reasonable price – the early word is that it will cost CNY 2,999 in its home region (around $453).
HUAWEI also has an HONOR-focused event planned for December 5th in London where the V10 could make an appearance, potentially alongside the mid-tier HONOR 7X.
