Huawei’s sub-brand Honor has announced the price of the View 10 slated to go on sale in India from January 8. The handset will be sold exclusively via Amazon India. Registrations have begun on the E-commerce website. This bezel-less smartphone with an AI-enabled processor will be available at a price of Rs.29,999. This price tag seems to be quite exceptional going by the specifications of Honor View 10. Expressing his views on the launch, P. Sanjeev, Vice-President Sales, Huawei India-Consumer Business Group, said, “The launch of Honor View 10 marks the beginning of a new AI era, making consumers shift from the smartphones to ‘Intelligent phones’. The Honor View10 also follows our commitment towards the Indian market and has been priced lower than the global variant (499 Euros).”
The most touted feature of Honor View 10 is its powerful Kirin 970 processor with a Neural-Network Processing Unit (NPU). This chipset can power several AI-based features like an AI-accelerated translator and Smart Tips. The AI-accelerated Microsoft software app translates different languages in real-time without being connected to the Internet. The Kirin 970’s NPU is claimed to increase the speed of translation by making it 500 per cent faster as compared to other devices running on the app. Other AI-enabled features can recognize different objects and scenes while clicking photos, and understand a user’s behavior.
Another highlight is the AI-based Facial Unlock technology which supports payment-level authentication. This technology enables the device to unlock in 400ms. When it comes to 3D face reconstruction, it uses sub-millimeter reconstruction accuracy. It is claimed that the Face Unlock feature is capable of delivering a 300k-point cloud reconstruction in just 10 seconds.
The phone sports a dual rear camera setup. There is a high-definition 16-megapixel and 20-megapixel dual-lens sensor with an aperture size of F/1.8, a 2-in-1 PDAF and dual-LED flash. The 13-megapixel front sensor comes with an aperture size of f/2.0. An AI-based Vision Engine enables you to use a feature which enhances the resolution of images.
The dual-SIM Nano device runs on Android 8.0. The phone has a 5.99-inch full-HD+ IPS LCD FullView display with a resolution of 1080×2160 pixels, a pixel density of 403ppi and an aspect ratio of 18:9. The HonorV10 offers 6GB RAM and an inbuilt storage of 128 GB which is expandable up to 256GB via a microSD card.
The Honor View 10 packs in a 3,750mAh battery and offers Honor’s SuperCharge technology which makes it a good option for heavy users and gamers. The battery can deliver approximately 23 hours talk time on 3G networks and 22 days standby time. It also offers 5V/ 4.5A which supports fast charging.
There are several options for connectivity like 4G VoLTE, dual-band Wi-Fi 802.11ac (2.4GHz + 5GHz), Bluetooth v4.2, USB Type-C (2.0), Infrared, GPS/ A-GPS, NFC, and a 3.5mm headphone jack. Sensors include an accelerometer, an ambient light sensor, a proximity sensor, a digital compass, and a gyroscope. The device comes with a fingerprint sensor on its home button.
