I was there when Honor presented their brand-new flagship phone, the Honor View 10, in London on the December 5th. Now you are able to pre-order this remarkable mobile.
Honor’s first AI-powered smartphone, the Honor View 10, is available for pre-order right now in the UK and Western Europe.
Pre-ordering the View 10 means that you can expect shipment starting on January 5th.
Honor View 10
The Honor View 10 features the new Kirin 970 SoC, the world’s most powerful mobile AI processor. This, combined with software that truly understands what consumers do with their phones, adds up to an incredibly smart smartphone.
For instance, the device will recognise different scenes and make your photos better. It will optimise the phone system to suit the way you use your phone. AI speeds up operations, improves ease-of-use and delivers best results.
Making smartphones smarter
The heart of the device is that Kirin 970 SoC (4 x 2.36 GHz and 4 x 1.8 GHz). This delivers AI performance that far surpasses any CPU and GPU architecture and processing data in real time.
Also, it is built with the most advanced TSMC 10nm process and features an octa-core ARM Cortex CPU. Furthermore, there’s the first-to-market Mali-G72 12-core GPU and the dedicated NPU for mobile devices.
The SoC (system on chip) interacts with the cloud. By processing big data in the cloud, cloud-based AI systems continuously update smartphones with new intelligence. Meanwhile, the Kirin 970 AI system gets to know the user better every day and provides personal services, intelligence and experience.
The heterogeneous computing architecture delivers up to 25 times faster performance and 50 times increase in efficiency when performing AI tasks. So, for example, over 2,000 images can be processed per minute.
The Kirin 970 also supports LTE Cat. 18 DL and Cat. 13 UL connections. This means that it can acheive a peak download speed of 1.2 Gbps. Moreover, it supports the highest possible download speed on any carrier networks worldwide.
Intelligent photography powered by AI
AI comes to play in scene and object recognition tech. The camera instantly sets the best parameters by adjusting colours, contrast, brightness and exposure, making photos better than ever.
The new digital zoom system, also powered by AI, allows up to 10x zoom and enables phase detection, depth and contrast focusing.
New functionalities assist and inspire
EMUI 8.0 packs a series of personalised services to satisfy your multi-tasking needs by way of splitting one screen into two, allowing two apps to run at the same time.
The combination of the Kirin 970 and EMUI 8.0 also allow a better processing performance and SDK optimisation to enhance your mobile gaming experience by reducing disruptions in gaming.
A 3,750 mAh battery and SuperCharge technology make the Honor View 10 ideal for heavy users.
The battery can be charged to 50% in just 30 minutes while operating at a low temperature and voltage.
The Honor View 10 comes with 6 GB RAM and 128 GB ROM (can be extended up to 256 GB by microSD card) and features Bluetooth 4.2, a fingerprints sensor on the back and USB type C.
