As expected, Huawei’s sub-brand Honor has launched the V10 smartphone in China today. The smartphone is currently available for pre-orders in China, and will be available for purchase starting December 5. The Honor V10 flaunts a metal body, and buyers will be able to choose from four color options of blue, black, gold and red.
Like the Huawei Mate 10 and Mate 10 Pro, the Honor V10 is also powered by the in-house Ai-based chipset, Kirin 970 SoC. The smartphone also comes with facial recognition as an added level of security. Honor also says that the AI is capable of detecting when someone else is using the smartphone, and immediately hides calls and messages. It also automatically rotates the screen horizontally or vertically according to what the smartphone is being used for.
Honor has also partnered with Microsoft for its translation tools, which are integrated into the V10. With this, the Honor V10 is said to offer real-time translation for different languages.
