first_imgHuawei sub-brand Honor on Tuesday unveiled the V10 – a near bezel-less smartphone and successor to the Honor V9. Honor’s newest flagship has been teased for a while now, and the actual design is surprisingly different from what past leaks have suggested. Apart from sporting minimal bezels, the Honor V10 keeps a home button on the front, a dual rear camera setup on the back and is powered by the AI-backed Kirin 970 processor, among other things.The Honor V10 is currently available for pre-orders in China and will go on sale from December 5. Notably, that is also the date when handset will be launched globally as the Honor 9 Pro. To recall, the V9 was launched as the Honor 8 Pro internationally. The phone starts from CNY 2699 (approx. 26,300) for the 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage variant, CNY 2999 (approx. Rs 29,300) for the 6GB + 64GB option, and CNY 3499 (approx. Rs 34,200) for the 6GB + 128GB storage variant.Honor’s newest smartphone sports an edge-to-edge display similar to the Honor 9i, Honor 7X and Huawei’s Mate 10 Pro. The only notable difference on the front is the inclusion of the home button like the Mate 10 which houses the fingerprint scanner, something that is a rarity these days with bezel-less phones. This means that the rear of the V10 sports a clean metal unibody design with just the Honor logo on the middle and a dual camera setup on the top left. The back is also similar to the Honor 7X, only the antenna lines here have been pushed to the edges.advertisementAlso Read: Honor 7X quick review: A familiar yet stylish mid-range phoneThe Honor V10 comes with Android 8.0 Oreo out-of-the-box with Huawei’s EMUI 8.0 skin on top.
