HONOR View 10 pre-orders begin in US on March 12
After its December announcement and early 2018 launch in Europe and other parts of the world, HONOR View10 is finally coming to the U.S. market! Pre-orders for the phone will begin March 12, and the phone will officially go on sale March 23. Pricing is set at $499, making it a great value considering all the features it offers.
The HONOR View10 is equipped with a cutting-edge AI processor, the octa-core HiSilicon Kirin 970, which marks the beginning of a new era for smartphones. It has 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB storage, which is expandable by up to 256GB using a microSD card in the hybrid dual-SIM tray. Clearly, the HONOR View10 can handle any Android application.
The HONOR View 10 has a large 5.99-inch LCD “FullView” display with an 18:9 aspect ratio and 1,080 x 2,160 resolution.
Another one of the phone’s big features is the use of the Neural Processing Unit (NPU) included in the Kirin 970 chip. It allows the phone to automatically optimize its memory based on which apps are used more often. The NPU is also used in the phone’s camera to automatically select the correct mode when you want to take that special shot.
The HONOR View10 is shaping up to be one of the most impressive unlocked Android smartphones you can buy.
The HONOR View10 has a dual sensor camera setup on the back, a 16 MP f/1.8 aperture color camera and a 20 MP f/1.8 aperture monochrome sensor. It also has a 13 MP front-facing camera, which can be used with a beautification mode with background bokeh effects, along with a wide aperture mode.
On top of a fingerprint sensor and a PIN, the HONOR View10 supports a Face Unlock feature, which unlocks the phone once its photo software recognizes your face. Face Unlock can also be used to just show sensitive information in notifications on the lock screen.
The HONOR View10 comes with Android 8.0 Oreo and HUAWEI’s latest version of its EMUI 8.0 interface out of the box. The phone has a 3,750 mAh battery which should allow for up to a day of use on a single charge. It will be available either in Navy Blue or Midnight Black colors.
Overall, the HONOR View 10 is looking like it will be one of the most impressive unlocked Android smartphones you can buy, especially with all of its high-end hardware at a price probably much lower than competitors with similar specs.
