Today in London at 16:00, Minsk time, a global presentation of the new flagship Honor 10 started. our correspondent was on the scene and in real time led a story about the presentation. Photos during the event were made on this smartphone. Conditions for shooting, to put it mildly, are complex. So it will only be more interesting.
In brief, the technical characteristics of the smartphone look like this:
- 5.84-inch IPS-display with a resolution of 2280 × 1080 pixels and a ratio of 19: 9;

- battery at 3400 mAh.
Smartphone in Europe and Russia will begin to sell today at a price of 400 euros (64 GB) and 450 euros (128 GB).
Naturally, in recent years, the broad masses have paid little attention to technical characteristics. Smartphones are finally getting smarter. And today we learn how smart the Honor 10 is.
Before the presentation, Honor representative from Belarus told us that the device will be released to the Belarusian market in the second half of June. With the price not yet clear, but promise that it will be no more than $ 600 in equivalent in official stores and communication stores.
Just on the big screen we were shown the same fans, for which the first three rows before the stage are reserved. All of them from different countries and very fond of the ruler of the flagships Honor. Apparently, this love and guaranteed them a place near the stage and a trip to London.
The president of the brand jumped to the stage with applause and stated that London is an important place for Honor. And here the brand’s expansion into the global market began. On the Russian market, by the end, it was possible to enter the top three, and in India – to the top five producers. The brand still focuses on the youth audience, which emphasizes its design and AI functions that appeared in the camera.
In the creation of color solutions inspired by people, flowers, the dynamics of the city, because all have already managed to get tired of standard black, white or gold phones. The color of Phantom Green, in particular, is inspired by the Northern Lights. Such gradient transitions on the back panel of the smartphone should inspire the user: after all, each individual smartphone has its own special coloring with nuances.
From the stage, they were not afraid to compare their smartphone with the iPhone X. More precisely, with its big “monobloc”. At Honor 10 it is noticeably smaller and can be hidden by dimming the notification line.
Further, the president of the brand told about AI in the cell. In particular, a special module in the chip allowed to overclock the neuroprocessor unit. This allows in real time to replace the background in the video with a moving person. As an example of speed, the Prisma application was selected, which on Honor 10 will be twice as fast to process images.
A lot of attention Honor devotes to portrait modes and selfies. Artificial intelligence here put in the service of “zamylivaniya” backgrounds and the creation of beautiful bokeh. On the big screen it looks quite nice. Even if it will be several people in the photo (group photo), the smartphone will cope with the “zablurivaniem” background. There is even a separate mode for photographing pandas. Apparently, neural networks had to review a lot of these lovely photos.
Appeared in the novelty and an advanced gallery, which is supported by AI. It allows you to automatically group photos by places and people who are depicted on them. Something like that you could see in the “cloud” Google Photo.
The last thing we decided to talk about is an ultrasound sensor that allows you to unlock your smartphone even with a wet finger. And also about autonomy. More precisely, about fast charging. In 25 minutes the battery can be charged up to 50% from zero. In addition, seven smartphones can be combined into one party and simultaneously run a certain song on them. Given that the sound of the Honor 10 is far from stereo, it will be difficult to speak about the quality of this sound.
The most delicious priapli price of devices in the European market. For the version with 64 GB you have to pay 400 euros, 128 GB – 450 euros. In some markets, the smartphone will be available as early as May 15.
