Aiming to take on the OnePlus 5T, Huawei’s sub-brand Honor will bring its bezel-less V10 smartphone with an Artificial Intelligence (AI)-enabled chipset to India in January.
Industry sources told IANS that the Honor V10 is likely to be launched in the Chinese market early this week and Honor will announce the global launch of the V10 at an event in London on December 5.
The 6GB RAM version of the V10 (with 128GB internal memory) will feature a dual rear-facing camera system (16 MP+20 MP) with a wide aperture range from F/0.95-F/16 and a 13MP front shooter.
The bezel-less, 5.99-inch device with 2160p x 1080p FHD+ display is expected to house a 3,750mAh battery and will have sport the new EMUI 8.0 based on Android 8.0 Oreo.
The device, for which the price is yet to be announced, will most likely run on the Kirin 970 chipset — Huawei’s first SoC a with Neural Processing Unit (NPU) that promises an affordable AI ecosystem.
The V10 will be available on either Amazon or Flipkart, the sources said.
The December 5 event will also see the launch of Honor 7X, the successor to the immensely successful Honor 6X.
The 4GB RAM Honor 7X features a 16MP + 2MP high-definition dual-rear camera setup and an 8MP front camera. It will use the Kirin 659 octa-core processor.
