Honor 10 Youth Edition Expected to Launch Tomorrow, to be Powered by Kirin 710 Processor

A brand new variant of the Honor 10 called the Honor 10 Youth Edition is most likely going to be launched tomorrow in China, and it is expected to be fueled by Huawei’s Kirin 710 chipset.


After the success of the Honor 10 (Review) in India and worldwide, Huawei’s cost-conscious sub-brand is expected to launch a new variant of the device in the form of the Honor 10 Youth Edition.

The smartphone will most likely see an unveiling tomorrow in China and its specifications are going to be slightly different compared to the Honor 10. Aesthetically, the Honor 10 Youth Edition is expected to be similar to that of the Honor 10 and it appeals to the young crowd. Some information about the phone’s features and hardware specifications was revealed earlier. Now, a teaser poster of the phone was unveiled.

The poster, which is apparently teasing the Honor 10 Youth Edition, throws light on a few things. The person who is holding the device is popular among the younger generation. According to a report, Honor has hired the multi-talented pop singer and film actor Zhu Zhengting to be the spokesperson for the Honor 10 Youth Edition. Since his music talent caters to the younger generation, the singer marketing the Honor 10 Youth Edition could have a bigger impact on sales.

However, it’s a well-made teaser since it is not revealing any design aspect of the smartphone. First, the image might show that the person is holding a handset but other than a rectangular block, the poster does not reveal anything else. Since it’s from the Honor 10 series, it could share some similarities with the premium Honor 10. There is a high probability of the Honor 10 Youth Edition featuring a gradient color design. This will be a smart approach from the company as the younger generation appreciates vibrant colors and an exceptional design for a mobile device. Most of the things, ranging from specifications and other details are not always young audience’s priority.

Honor 10 Youth Edition: Expected Specifications

Apart from the presence of the Kirin 710 processing chipset, no other hardware details about the Honor 10 Youth Edition have been revealed. The Kirin 710 is a welcome replacement for the Kirin 659, even though it is still unable to beat the Snapdragon 660 in several synthetic and real-life tests. Regardless, the chipset will be able to deliver better computing performance. It also supports Huawei’s GPU Turbo Technology, which optimizes gaming performance and power efficiency. We can expect a base version of the phone in two variants: 3GB RAM and 4GB RAM. There should be at least 32GB of internal storage inside the phone.

The Honor 10 Youth Edition might also feature a dual-camera setup at the rear with AI assistance mode. This will help to improve images through scene recognition while also providing support for improved stabilization. The owner’s selfies might also improve thanks to the presence of AI help. Other details include a taller display with 18:9 aspect ratio and possibly a 3.5mm audio jack. Whether or not the phone’s screen features a notch (similar to the Honor 10) remains to be seen. As for the pricing, the Honor 10 Youth Edition is expected to be affordable, just like its predecessor, the Honor 9 Youth Edition. The latter was launched at a price of CNY 1,299 (approximately, INR 13,599), so expect the latest release to be cheap as well.

After you’re done reading about the Honor 10 Youth Edition, you can check out our video review of another device that is powered by the Kirin chipset: the Honor Play. However, the Honor Play features the powerful Kirin 970 instead of the mid-range Kirin 710 chipset. In India, the Honor Play kickstarted the gaming smartphone market and was one of the cheapest device powered by a flagship-grade processor. Later, Honor also launched the Honor 8X, which has premium looks, a dual-camera setup at the rear, and the Kirin 710 processor.
