Sales of the Huawei Honor V10 start tomorrow, and JD.com reports it has reached over 570,000 registrations. The sale will start 10:08 local time and we have a feeling it will end minutes, if not seconds after that.
Note that JD is only one of several major retailers in China to carry the phone. Vmall and Tmall will also sell the Honor V10, though they don’t have a registration counter so we can only guess how many people are buying through those stores.
Another important V10 event tomorrow – a dedicated European event (and we’ll be there). We should find out launch details for the Old Continent and perhaps North America as well.
A direct translation of the prices works out to €345 / $410 for the 4GB / 64GB model. The upgrade to 6GB of RAM (best value for money, we think) is $40 / €35. Of course, this is before the price is adjusted for European tariffs and goodies like 2 years of warranty.
No worries about camera, as honor flagship phone usually produce the best picture quality in non OIS range camera. Proven in Honor 8 pro. Its cheaper they have to minus the OIS, but still good.
A matter of taste. Personally I prefer the possibility of unlocking the phone quickly without having to lift it from the table. So My doubt with V10, Nova 2S, etc, are the cameras. Waiting for the reviews.
