Huawei’s subsidiary Honor has always been the cheaper alternative to its parent company’s lineup of premium smartphones. Last year’s Honor 9 flagship had specs resembling the Huawei P10, with the only notable difference being the absence of the Leica branding on its cameras. Honor has already launched a couple of full screen smartphones, and it looks like another one is on its way.
Since the Huawei P20 has been launched, it does make a lot of sense to expect the Honor 10 based on the media invite for the May 15 launch event as seen above. Honor also teased “beauty in AI”, which translates to AI camera capabilities currently existing on Huawei’s Mate 10 and P20 handsets. Whether or not the Honor 10 will feature 3 cameras in total like the P20 Pro remains to be seen.
Honor has been making strides previously with the Honor 8 and Honor 9 taking no prisoners. We can expect the Honor 10 to be just as impressive if not better than its predecessors. One thing we can almost be certain about is that the Honor 10 will be powered by Huawei’s own Kirin 970 AI processor, which has proven to pack a punch.
Time too will tell if the May 15 launch event is indeed of the Honor 10, given that the Honor 9 was unveiled in June last year. Let’s hope we see some of the Huawei P20 features in the Honor 10
