IPHONE KILLER; Subsidiary of Huawei, the Honor brand is a hit on the Internet among young people with his powerful smartphones at low cost. The future Honor View 10 directly target the iPhone 10. A lower cost …
On paper, it has it all. Launched on January 8, the future smartphone View 10 (V10) of Honor (subsidiary of Huawei ) is built like a bomb technology. Unveiled on December 5 in London by George Zhao, CEO of Honor, the View 10 ticks all the boxes to seduce. Starting with its very attractive price. At 499 euros, the terminal comes as a dog in a game of bowling on the market of medium range smartphones … with high-end features.
The boss even compared to the iPhone X Apple sold from 1159 euros.
Around its screen 18: 9 Full HD + (2160 x 1080) of 5.99 ” / 15.21 cm, Honor aligns its Kirin 970 processor weighted with NPU chip (for Neural Processing Unit). This is actually a neural processor embedding artificial intelligence functions developed. The V10 is able to recognize up to 33 frames per second (against 16 X iPhone, and 2 for the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 Samsung).
The goal ? recognize a place, a monument, a face, a picture automatically detect scene (13 identified) to optimize its picture in a flash settings. Also: analyze and translate text in foreign languages instantly, like a Chinese menu that can be read in the moment in French on the smartphone screen. Of mercies! Claimed as “the first artificial intelligence smartphone for youth” by the CEO of Honor, the V10 also charm the photo.
The device has a double camera module to the back (20 + 16 megapixels with f / 1.8 aperture) and a sensor 13MP front. A portrait mode, as on the iPhone X is present on both sides of the terminal, Honor announcing that it is also possible to use it to crop a face and place it on any background.
Remains to be seen how it will work, the proposal of Apple in the material remaining still perfectible … History to drive the point relative to its competitor claimed, Honor equips its V10 of a battery of 3,750 mAh (against 2,617 mAh for the iPhone X and 3300 mAh for Samsung Galaxy Note 8). It is even thinner 6.97 mm against 7.7 mm for the X and iPhone 8.6mm for the Galaxy Note 8. We almost wonder where is the fault .
Till, the V10 has all the scientist cocktail between Huawei Mate Mate 10 and 10 Pro . Certainly, we do not find the Leica image sensors or OLED screen Mate, but the leg of the parent is unquestionably there. For now, 499 euros seem too expensive pay facing the plethora of technical promises of Honor. It remains to see how the future toy withstand the first tests.
