Honor View 10 and Honor 7X Arrive Europe For €499 & €299 Respectively

Honor View 10 and Honor 7X Arrive Europe For €499 & €299 Respectively

It's the same setup that gave the Mate 10 Pro's camera its clever object recognition capabilities, and Honor tells us the View 10 will receive the same functionality.

The Honor View 10 will launch in January 2018 in France, Germany, India, Italy, the United Kingdom, U.S., Spain and Russian Federation. The first smartphone in this new series is called as Honor View 10. So the Honor 7X is actually the same size as the Honor 6X which had a 5.5-inch display. The Xiaomi Mi A1 is also a worthy competitor.

Under the hood, it comes with the flagship Kirin 970 octa-core processor clocked at 2.36 GHz.

The Honor 7X comes with a HiSilicon Kirin 659 octa-core SoC processor and 4 GB RAM which operates on Android 7.1.1 Nougat with EMUI 5.1.

Buyers looking for a thin-bezeled bargain, meanwhile, can pick up the Honor 7x from today for just €299 (£269) in over 20 countries, including the US, UK, India, and across most of Europe. It features a dual-lens 16MP and 2MP rear camera, and an autofocus rate of 0.18 seconds. Huawei was actually the one that started the whole dual-camera fad this time around, and it looks like its here to stay. Connectivity options in the smartphone include 4G LTE, VoLTE, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth, GPS, and sadly, it still has a micro USB port and not a USB Type-C port.

The Honor View 10 is a flagship device just like the Mate 10 Pro, packing almost the same specs but with a cheaper price tag. Once again, it was deja vu in today's launch presentation, where Honor president George Zhao talked up the chip's AI motion detection features, which it's claimed can reduce motion blur with moving subjects. The Honor 7X is shaping up to be a great smartphone, especially for those that don't want to spend a ton of cash. It will be available in 128GB storage, 6 GB RAM variant and a 64 GB storage 4/6 GB RAM variant.

The back of the phone is less exciting, with iPhone-esque antenna lines at the top and bottom, with a solitary Honor logo and dual rear cameras. The display also has a 2.5D curved glass on top. Front 13 megapixel camera. The 7X comes with a 8MP sensor at the front for selfies. Granted, EMUI 8.0 is a lot better than previous iterations, but the changes it makes to stock Android don't always make a lot of sense.

The battery is slightly smaller (3,750mAh vs 4,000mAh), but the View 10 still features fast charging, to quickly replenish battery life.

One nice touch is the arrival of "Supercharge", which will charge the battery to 50 per cent in 30 minutes.
