The Huawei Mate 10 and Mate 10 Pro might be two of the most popular smartphones to launch in the past few weeks. Huawei’s subsidiary, Honor is about to launch a more affordable version of the handset, the Honor V10, which will be almost as great as the Huawei Mate 10 and Mate 10 Pro. According to the company’s Weibo post, the launch event for the Honor V10 will take place in Beijing, China, on November 28. Another launch event for the handset will take place in London a little later, on December 5.
The Honor V10 will probably look a lot like the Huawei Mate 10, as it will sport the same 6-inch display with really slim bezels and 18:9 aspect ratio as the Mate 10 Pro. Naturally, it won’t look exactly the same. That would not make any sense at all. There are quite a few similarities in the hardware section too. According to the latest reports, the Honor V10 will feature the powerful kirin 970 chipset too, and it will become available in two variants. One of them will include 6GB of RAM and 64GB internal storage, while the other will be even more impressive, including 8GB of RAM and 128GB storage. This is, in fact, more powerful than the Huawei Mate 10 Pro which offers 4GB or 6GB of memory.
The dual rear camera setup of the Honor V10 also seems to be more promising. It will reportedly consist of a 20MP sensor and a 16MP one. On the front, there will probably be an 8MP sensor. It’s not quite clear yet whether these will be Leica cameras as well or not, but if they are, they are definitely going to be awesome. Thankfully, the honor V10 will also sport the same battery as the Huawei mate 10 Pro. The 4,000mAh energy pack is large enough to take users through the day on a single charge. Naturally, the new handset will run the same Android 8.0 Oreo-based Huawei EMUI 8.0 as the Mate 10 smartphones.
As for the pricing, it seems that the Honor V10 will cost somewhere around 3,000 CNY ($450). This is a lot more affordable than the Huawei Mate 10 Pro, which is quite surprising as, on paper, the Honor V10 seems to be just as great as the Mate 10 Pro. It’s hard to believe that Huawei would make such a mistake, to deliver a similar handset at half the price of another. The Honor V10 will probably lack some of the AI features of the Huawei Mate 10 Pro, in order to equilibrate things a little bit. there are only a few days to go until the official launch event of the Honor V10. Then, we will find out everything there is to know about the new model and how it compares to the Huawei mate 10 Pro.
