The smartphone will be available in two colors – Phantom Blue and Midnight Black.
On the hardware front, the Honor 10 features a 5.84-inch IPS LCD display with a Full HD+ resolution of 2280 x 1080 pixels. Like Huawei P20 Lite, the display supports a taller aspect ratio of 19:9, which is taller than the 18.7:9 aspect ratio found on the likes of Huawei P20 and P20 Pro. The display also features a cutout at the top that hides the front-facing camera and microphone. However, the Honor 10 is not an all-glass design like iPhone X and does feature a chin at the bottom that houses the front-mounted fingerprint sensor.
