While the Honor View 10 joins the growing list of new phones launching with Android 8.0 Oreo out of the box, the Honor 7x has to settle for Android 7.1 Nougat. The Honor 7X is a successor to Honor 6X smartphone, which was launched in India earlier this year. It also features similar specifications as the Honor 9i, which is priced at Rs 17,999 in India. The V10 will be launched in India soon and dates are yet to be announnced. The Honor View 10 price in India has not been revealed.
For starters the Honor 7X has already grabbed eyeballs for its edge to edge large 5.9-inch, 1080 x 2160 FHD display with 18:9 aspect ratio.
The Honor View 10 or V10 will be made available starting Jan 8th next year on a price tag of €499 for 6GB + 128GB configuration. And with a 3,750mAh battery on the inside, it should come close to matching the Mate 10 Pro's epic longevity - although the phone's LCD display may count against it in that area. It is powered by Octa-Core Kirin 659 processor with MaliT830-MP2 GPU.
It's the same setup that gave the Mate 10 Pro's camera its clever object recognition capabilities, and Honor tells us the View 10 will receive the same functionality.
Huawei is backing on two features to set the Honor 7X apart from the crowd - the dual camera setup at the rear and the 18:9 display up front. Cameras are the major difference between the Honor 7X and Honor 9i as the latter comes with dual selfie cameras.
The contemporary metallic outer body makes the Honor 7X all the more craving among the lovers of the brand.
On the inside, a middle-range Kirin 695 processor keeps the lights on on board of the device, aided by 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage. The main sensor is responsible for capturing the picture while the assistive sensor helps with depth perception. In the demo, we also got to see the camera used to animate cartoon characters from facial mapping in 3D.
As for connectivity, the Honor V10 packs in the usual flagship-grade connectivity options, but brings something new with dual 4G and dual VoLTE standby. Granted, EMUI 8.0 is a lot better than previous iterations, but the changes it makes to stock Android don't always make a lot of sense.
However, the features that might not impress us on the Honor 7x are the old school micro USB port for charging and data syncing, the third party EMUI operating system, which might not receive faster software updates.
