Huawei has announced the worldwide launch of its next flagship mobile phone, the Honor brand.
The Chinese technology giant officially unveiled the Honor 10 smartphone at an event in London that continues the trend of quality improvement. The main reason for selling the camera was the
We actually knew much of what the Honor 10 was already offered in China last month, but now it is ready for prime time in the world.
The Honor 10 comes almost a year after its predecessor Honor 9, which received overwhelmingly positive reviews for its design quality and value. However, as with the Honor 9, the Honor 10 will not soon arrive in the US – it will be launched in Europe and Asia. A spokesperson confirmed to VentureBeat that the company will announce more new devices for the US market later this year.
The selling point behind the Honor 1
Yes, just like that Huawei P20, launched last month, the Honor 10 promises to deliver beautiful photos with artificial intelligence. So much so that Honor actually emblazoned "AI Camera" on the back of the phone.
The device has a 24MP + 16MP dual-lens camera on the back, which Huawei claims more than can detect 500 scenarios in 22 categories in real time. For example, it can create outlines of objects and people to improve the clarity of the photos.
This "Semantic Image Segmentation" Smart allows the Honor 10 to separate multiple objects in a single image to enhance each element of the scene. It seems like it was shot by a professional (or a really good DSLR) Service.
There's also a 24 MP front camera, which is the more important camera for many considering the seemingly insatiable craving for selfies. It also supports 3D facial recognition and can optimize facial details for clarity, as well as various studio lighting effects. Elsewhere, the device has a glass body, 3,400 mAh battery, 5.84-inch Full HD display and 4GB of RAM and it comes in two 64GB and 128GB memory versions. There is no microSD slot here, and there is also the recent trend of using a "notch" at the top of the screen to maximize screen space. However, it ignores other trends – this phone has kept the headphone jack intact.
At the time of writing this article, the company has only announced prices in pounds sterling. The device will cost £ 399.99, which is about $ 540 or $ 455, which is more affordable than the Huawei P20 or P20 Pro, which cost $ 650 / $ 850 and $ 900 / $ 1,100, respectively.
But you get what you pay for. The Honor 10 is compared to the Huawei P20 because it focuses on AI-infused camera technology, but they are ultimately different devices.
The Honor 10 measures 5.89 x 2.80 x 0.30 inches (149.6 x 71.2 x 7.7 mm), which is smaller than the Huawei P20. In addition, the Huawei P20 has a rear-facing 40-megapixel camera, 6GB of RAM, a larger battery and a host of other features. The Honor 10 has the same HiSilicon Kirin 970 chipset as its big brother Huawei.
In essence, the Honor 10 is offered as an affordable option, stretching the quality spectrum somewhere between a mid and high range device. 19659002] Huawei has already integrated AI technology into previous Honor smartphones, including the Honor Magic, which claimed to use AI to better respond to user interactions with the device. And the recently announced Honor View10 also uses AI in the background. But by attaching "AI Camera" on the phone itself, the company leaves no doubt as to how their latest device should be perceived.
The Honor 10 will be available in four colors: blue, green, black and gray – and will be available SIM-free online today. The handset will also be available on local carriers from the end of this week.
