Specs of Honor 10, expected to arrive globally on May 15, already appeared in the wild 10 days ago. Now we have double confirmation on most of them thanks to the Chinese regulatory TENAA. The next Honor flagship will have a Kirin 970 chipset, a tall notched screen and latest version of the Android OS.
Honor 10 appeared in four different configurations under the following model numbers - COL-AL10, COL-TL10, COL-AL00, and COL-TL00. The SoC is built by Huawei-owned HiSilicon and comes with an octa-core CPU, clocked at 2.36 GHz. RAM will be 4 or 6 GB, and storage is also in two sizes - either 64 GB or 128 GB.
The front panel is most likely to come with a notch for the camera and earpiece just like what Huawei did to the P20 series. The resolution is 2280 x 1080 pixels, which is a 19:9 aspect. The screen will be 5.84” in diagonal and should be an LCD.
Honor 10 is arriving with dual cameras, as we saw previously. The setup will be 16 MP + 24 MP and according to information from the weekend, it will have “semantic image segmentation mode”. This means the new phone should be able to have multi-scene detection within a single photo, which will be enabled by the AI capabilities of the Kirin 970.
All Huawei devices in the past several years come with an extensively customized user interface and Honor 10 follows the trend - it will run the EMUI 8.1 on top of Android 8.1 Oreo. It will have a 3,320 mAh battery, most likely coupled with Huawei’s in-house fast charging.
Offered in Silver and measuring 149.6 x 71.2 x 7.7 mm, the Honor 10 will be announced on April 19 in China.
