Honor, Huawei’s sub-brand has just confirmed that it will launch its new bezel-less smartphone, the Honor V10 in China later this month. While it was known that the Honor V10 would indeed be launching before the end of 2017, all we had until now were unconfirmed social media posts and a report by Chinese technology portal Anzhuo. It was just a few days ago that Anzhuo had speculated about a possible November 28 launch date for the Honor V10.
Well, turns out they got the date right!
Honor has confirmed that the Honor V10 would indeed see officialdom on November 28 via their official Weibo account.
Here is the official poster.
What is now left to be seen is whether the handset would also see its international announcement on December 5 at an event in London as predicted by Anzhuo in the same blog post. The news of the Honor V10’s imminent announcement comes close on the heels of the handset receiving 3C approval in China.
While the official spec sheet of the phone hasn’t been revealed, what is currently known is that the V10 will feature a 5.99-inch bezel-less display. Going with the current trend, the handset will also sport an 18:9 aspect ratio. The handset is also slated to get Huawei’s newest Kirin 970 chipset which is also found doing duties on the Huawei Mate 10 and the Mate 10 Pro.
The Honor V10 is also rumoured to come with 6GB of RAM and will be offered in two versions – an entry-level 64GB variant and a higher priced 128GB version. The phone is also rumoured to sport twin rear cameras – a 16-megapixel primary shooter and a 20-megapixel secondary camera.
At launch, the phone will run EMUI 6.0 atop an Android 8.0 Oreo core. Expect the handset to be priced at around the $450 mark. The Honor V10 is also likely to make it to India just like its predecessor – the Honor V9 – came to India as the Honor 8 Pro.
