Honor unveils View 10 with 5.99-inch screen & AI capabilities

The Honor View 10 proves you don't need to spend over £500 on a flagship smartphone

A full review will follow in the coming days.

Starting with the hardware, Huawei - Honor's parent company - has always done really well with its hardware. The Honor 6X was, alongside the Redmi Note 4, one of the best value for money buys this year, and the 7X builds on that success. The phone is available in either Aurora Blue, Gold, or Black colorways. It's an 18:9 slab with a big screen and a metal back, and there are only so many ways to make that work. Although it's not completely flat since there are those two camera bumps for the dual-camera setup there.

The Honor View 10's camera setup introduces a few wildcards into the mix. That is still intact here, and it's at the bottom of the phone. It does, however, still use a micro USB port for charging.

Honor is a leading smartphone e-brand under the Huawei Group. Not because it's slow or bogged down, but with EMUI the company likes to change things just for the sake of changing things.

While we're tempering excitement with caution, the 7X undoubtedly looks like one of the best possible new devices you can get for $200, especially as the new Redmi devices are yet to be launched. The feature tripped up during its on-stage demo at today's event, however, and we'll need more time to judge just how convenient this feature is compared to fingerprint unlock. And that's a common theme within EMUI, which the Honor 7X is running on EMUI 5.1. On the other hand, both Xiaomi Mi A1 and Moto G5S Plus run Android 7.1.1 Nougat out-of-the-box.

With Sauber's confirmation, just one F1 seat remains for 2018
It's believed that Ferrari had been pressing for another of their development drivers, Antonio Giovinazzi, to take the race seat. Sauber has unveiled its concept livery for the 2018 Formula 1 season, in the wake of its collaboration with FCA brand Alfa Romeo.

As for the Honor V10, it will go on sale in India on 8 January.

The new Honor 7X was launched in a major event in London at a price of Rs 12,999 for the 32 GB variant and Rs 15,999 for the 64 GB variant.

That double barrell camera sure looks serious. The AI-powered Portrait mode for selfies is also being outed. It will also feature a 13MP front-facing camera. There's also a dedicated AI engine which is responsible for scrutinising scenes in real-time for automatically adjusting the camera settings.Honor has apparently partnered with Microsoft and thus the Microsoft Translators use the AI engine. It packs 3340 mAh battery. The Xiaomi Mi A1 and Moto G5S Plus sport a 5.5-inch display. The Honor 7X, however, has a 6-inch display, since it is a bit taller, and gives the Honor 7X smaller bezels.

For comparisons sake: The OnePlus 5T has a 6-inch AMOLED display with 1080 x 2160 pixels and a price tag of $500 Dollars.

It's even more impressive that the Honor View 10 is priced at a very affordable £449.99 (for comparison, the Mate 10 Pro is priced at £699). Indeed, this is Honor's flagship smartphone with its flagship chipset inside.
