It also packs enough heat that it's essentially a cheaper version of Honor's parent company's flagship P20.

Honor has launched its new Honor 10 smartphone, and we think it could turn out to be the best smartphone deal of the year. The panel has minimal bezels on all its three sides, thereby resulting in a remarkable 86.2% screen to body ration. The device is powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 450 14nm octa-core chipset clocked at 1.8GHz, with integrated Adreno 506 GPU. There is also a dedicated NPU for processing the AI tasks. The 4GB RAM and 64GB/128GB ROM storage give sufficient space to stock all your exciting moments recorded in galleries, apps, and files. In keeping with recent trends, this device was pitched with the quality of the camera being the main selling point. Artificial intelligence (A.I.) can recognize 22 different scenes, and multiple objects in one picture, allowing it to adjust the settings in real-time based on individual aspects. The front camera which will be using the AI features on the Kirin 970 SoC will also support 3D portrait lighting.

The frontside camera has 3D face recognition and works with "studio lighting effects" with a "range of lighting conditions". The notch houses a front-facing camera, nearly circular speaker, and a light sensor.

In addition to sparring with China, his team is in talks to rewrite the North America Free Trade Agreement with Mexico and Canada. The ban left ZTE's production in trouble, with the company saying this month that it had stopped its main operations as a result.

On the camera front, the smartphone sports a dual rear camera setup which includes a primary 16-megapixel (RGB) sensor and a secondary 16-megapixel (monochrome) sensor that comes paired with f/1.8 aperture, LED flash, CAF, PDAF, as well as depth focus. The rear camera modules are 24-megapixel and 16-megapixel respectively, while the front camera ups the game with an impressive 24-megapixel sensor. Honor 10 is powered by a 3,400 mAh battery with ultrafast 5A charging support that goes to 50% in 25 minutes. Although the Honor 7C price in India is still not known, it is expected to be between Rs. 8000 to Rs. 10,000. For India, there is only one variant but that one has 6GB RAM and 128GB ROM. In India, the smartphone will exclusive to Flipkart with pre-orders starting tonight at 12.00 am.

Honor 10 will be made available in Phantom Blue, Phantom Green, Glacier Grey, and Midnight Black colour options.

The Honor 10 sticks to the usual yearly release window, given that the well-received Honor 9 was launched nearly a year ago. We pretty much know what each flagship device will run, and this is giving OEM's the opportunity to adapt.
