Honor 10 details: iPhone X and Galaxy S9's features remixed

Honor 10 India Launch Set for Today How to Watch Live Stream

Honor 10 Will Go Official in India Today as a Flipkart Exclusive

The Honor 10 which is essentially a souped up Honor View 10 takes major design and hardware cues from Huawei's top-tier P20, bringing top-tier design and hardware to the masses.

Honor has also touted AI capabilities of the Honor 10. The phone has a notched display with a thin chin at the bottom, which houses the under-the-glass fingerprint scanner.

For photography, Huawei has already established its pedigree with its Leica-powered P-series of phones.

The build quality feels great, too, and as the handset measures 149.6 x 71.2 x 7.7mm and weighs in at a very reasonable 153g, the Honor 10 feels light yet balanced in the hand. However, that's forgivable given the Honor 10's cost - you'll still struggle to do better for the money. Those who wish to can also turn it off in the phone's settings leaving a plain black bar. It sports a 5.84-inch bezel-less display with Full HD+ (2280 x 1080 pixels) resolution and 19:9 aspect ratio.

Tropical Downpours: spotty but heavy storms begin Tuesday
The big weather story is the slight chance of storms this morning and the continued storm chances everyday through the weekend . An early estimate on rain totals this week shows roughly an inch and a half to two inches of rain for most of the area.

Inside this device is an NPU processor with 4GB of RAM. As for storage, you get 128GB with the Huawei P20 and either 64GB or 128GB with the Honor 10 (128GB in the UK), and neither phone has a microSD card slot. The Honor 10 will run on Huawei's EMUI 8.1, based on the latest Android 8.1 Oreo operating system.

For shooters, there is a dual rear camera setup that has a 13-megapixel primary sensor and a 2-megapixel secondary sensor, paired with an autofocus lens that has an f/2.2 aperture.

Under the hood, the Honor 10 has a Kirin 970 chipset which has a dedicated neural processing unit. This majorly includes scene and object recognition. The glass finish means that the back of the device is also a fingerprint sensor. It remains to be seen whether the Honor 10 can match it there. The rear camera modules are 24-megapixel and 16-megapixel respectively, while the front camera ups the game with an impressive 24-megapixel sensor. The phone packs in a 3400 mAh battery which can be charged from 0%-50% in just 25 mins with the included 22.5 W SuperCharge adapter. These are specs from the Chinese variant of the Honor 10, but as already mentioned, the global model will probably share majority, if not all of them. Both also support fast charging, but not wireless charging.

Honor 10 smartphone was launched by the company on Tuesday, May 15 in London, UK. So the Huawei P20 is a fair bit more expensive. Is it just a "fragile P20", as a user commented during the launch? A fingerprint scanner is included below the phone's display, while the back of the phone is highly reflective, it looks even flashier than on the Honor 9.
