Honor, a brand under Huawei, has finally launched their flagship smartphone for the global market after almost a month of being official.
The new Honor 10 is currently the carrier of the company’s flag. This device basically came from the same mold as the Huawei P20, but only more affordable.
Honor 10 comes with a screen size of 5.84-inches with a Full HD+ resolution, an IPS panel, and a display notch on top. And just like Huawei’s current flagship devices, the Honor 10 also comes with a Kirin 970 chipset with either 4GB/6GB of RAM and 64GB/128GB of internal storage.
The Honor 10 lacks the Leica branding, but the rear cameras look pretty interesting nonetheless. There’s a 16-megapixel and 24-megapixel camera combo in the back, while on the front there’s a 24-megapixel sensor for selfies.

Considering that they have already put up an official store in Shopee, we expect it to be available soon. If you want to check out other cheaper Honor smartphones, their store is already offering the Honor 9 Lite and Honor 7X in case you want to check it out.
