The new Honor 10 features portrait lighting and advanced scene recognition


Huawei has just launched the latest flagship model of its sub-brand Honor, and at 400 Euros (approximately $475) for the 64GB version or 450 Euros (approximately $530) for the 128GB variant, the Honor 10 offers the same Kirin 970 top-end chipset as Huawei's flagships P20 and P20 Pro at a significantly lower price point.

The camera specifications are different to the Huawei models—unfortunately, there is no P20 Pro-like triple cam—but, at least on paper, the specs still look pretty good. The Honor 10 features a dual-camera setup that comes with a 16MP/F1.8 main camera and a 24MP monochrome secondary chip.

Image data from the latter is merged computationally with the main camera for advanced digital zoom, lower noise levels and better detail. And, of course, there's a native monochrome mode as well.


Huawei puts a lot of emphasis on the camera software, too. As is currently en vogue, AI is used for object recognition, and the Honor 10 has 22 shooting modes that recognize and adjust to different objects and scenes in real time. However, the Honor 10 goes one step further than most similar systems.

It can identify several elements of a scene and optimize them individually, according to the context of the image. This can happen in real-time, thanks to dedicated Neural Processing Unit (NPU).

Finally, the Honor 10 also includes an Apple-like Portrait Lighting mode that works with both the rear cameras and the 24MP/F2.0 front-facing cam.


Other specs for the affordable flagship smartphone include 4 GB RAM, a 5.84-inch IPS LCD panel with Full HD+ resolution and 19:9 aspect ratio, and a 3,400 mAh battery. A 3.5mm headphone jack is included as well, but the phone does lack a memory expansion slot.

The Honor 10 is available in Europe starting today. No information for availability in other regions has been provided yet. To find out more, watch the video below or visit the Honor website.

The dual-cam setup combines a 12MP RGB sensor with a 20MP monochrome chip. Like on previous high-end Huaweis, the latter allows for a native black-and-white mode, and Huawei claims that the combination of captured image data from both sensors leads to improved dynamic range and lower noise levels.
