Honor V10 with AI dual rear cameras announced

Honor V10 with AI dual rear cameras announced

Chinese telecom giant Huawei's sub-brand Honor on Tuesday launched its flagship Honor 7X smartphone which gives full-screen viewing experience at Rs 12,999 for the 32GB variant and Rs 15,999 for the 64 GB variant. Indeed, like most in vogue smartphones today, the Honor 7X also boasts a bezel-less (5.93-inch) display with 18:9 aspect ratio.

The rear camera setup on the Honor View 10 sports two sensors - one 16-megapixel RGB sensor and the other a 20-megapixel monochrome sensor, complete with an f/1.8 aperture, PDAF, dual-LED flash.

Huawei's Honor sub-brand is created to cater for younger people. The smartphone is an Amazon Exclusive and the sale will start at 12 PM, 7th December.

Qualcomm and Microsoft bring on Always Connected PCs with ASUS NovaGo
Retail prices start from US$599 for the 4 GB RAM/64 GB storage version and tops at US$799 for the 8 GB RAM/256 GB storage version. Both devices will ship with Windows 10S , but ASUS and HP are offering free upgrades to Windows 10 Pro before September 30, 2018.

Our take: Huawei is positioning the Honor View 10 as the "first affordable AI-enabled smartphone", and while the benefits of AI in the near-term remain to be seen, what's certain is the fact that the Honor View 10 stands on its own merits - mostly.

We don't yet have pricing, but Honor announced that the phone will launch for the United States in January, 2018.

The View 10 comes in a single 6GB RAM + 128GB ROM variant for Europe with the option for storage expansion (256GB max.). The device was launched at an event in London where the company also announced the global launch of Honor V10.

Starbucks to Go "Venti" in China
China is seen as a promising market for Starbucks as the coffee giant tries to expand outside of the saturated USA market. Customers can also visit Tmall to purchase Shanghai Roastery and Reserve branded merchandise and coffee for home delivery.

The back of the phone is less exciting, with iPhone-esque antenna lines at the top and bottom, with a solitary Honor logo and dual rear cameras. The V10 will be launched in India soon and dates are yet to be announnced. For example, if you download and install a new launcher from the Play Store, you are not able to press home and then select the launcher. Shaping up to be another slam dunk by Honor, the V10 supports two SIM cards with LTE connectivity at once (on GSM carriers like AT&T or T-Mobile), plus one of those slots can house a microSD card instead, should you wish to expand on the already generous 128 GB storage, neat.

The View 10 will use the 13MP front facing camera for facial unlock.

But if the worldwide pricing remains competitive, the Honor View 10 loooks certain to give the competition a run for its money. The smartphone comes with a price tag of Euro 499, which roughly translate to Rs 38,000 and it come in Black, Aurora Blue, Gold and Red colour options.
