Honor to launch View 10 in India on Jan 8 (Second Lead)

Honor 7X

It's safe to expect a similar feature set in EMUI 8.0, which appeared near identical to the Mate 10's software on the Honor View 10. At a launch event in London on Tuesday, it announced that it's the number one smartphone brand in China, and recently said that it wants to become the most popular smartphone brand in India. Most notably, however, the V10 has what's called a 3D Facial Animation feature, which is a carbon copy of Apple's Animoji that tracks your face and transposes that onto an animal character.

Rounding out the Honor View 10's hardware is a 3,750mAh battery, which is smaller than the 4000mAh battery found in the Mate 10 series.

Honor View 10 marks the beginning of a new AI era, enabling a productive, entertaining and fun lifestyle for users. It combines the best features of the Huawei Mate 10 and Mate 10 Pro, but there are some omissions, too. The phone comes with a 3340mAh battery. Charging at up to 4.5A should deliver quick, cool refills. This isn't just a Leica-less recreation of the Mate 10 Pro's setup - instead, there's are dual 16- and 20-megapixel sensors around the back, behind f/1.8 apertures. The combination of two lenses enables depth-of-field/bokeh effects along with other nifty effects. The smartphone is what Honor claims to be its first AI smartphone.

Honor 7X

Many of the Mate 10's camera features have been ported over, but it's unclear how the optics will stack up.

The Honor 7X is the first smartphone to feature Honor FullView Display that delivers remarkable display quality and achieves an extraordinary high screen-to-body ratio.With exceptional durability and quality, Honor 7X is a flawless gift for the holiday season. The secondary camera on the Honor View10 is a 13-megapixel unit for selfies and video calling. Honor claims that its fast charging technology can charge the battery up to 50 percent in just 30 minutes. For the front camera, there is a 13MP sensor. And the phone was able to successfully transform one Honor employee into a virtual panda. The FullView screen is impressive for a budget phone, with a resolution that matches the OnePlus 5T but for a fraction of the price. The biggest sticking point will likely be Huawei's highly differentiated (and some might say not entirely pretty) EMUI software, which isn't as clean as super-lean OxygenOS. It will be available in two colour variants - Aurora Blue and Midnight Black for $199.

Apart from India, the device will be launched in France, Germany, Italy, Britain, the US, Spain and Russian Federation.
