Honor is all set to globally launch Honor View 10 on January 8 next year including in India for 499 euros, the company's President George Zhao revealed here on Tuesday.
Apart from India, the device will be launched in France, Germany, Italy, Britain, the US, Spain and Russia.
IANS had earlier reported that aiming to take on OnePlus 5T, Huawei's sub-brand Honor is to bring its bezel-less V10 smartphone with an Artificial Intelligence (AI)-enabled chipset -- the first from Honor -- to India in January.
Honor View 10 delivers revolutionary mobile AI and ultimate performance, Zhao said while announcing its launch date.
"Honor View 10 marks the beginning of a new AI era, enabling a productive, entertaining and fun lifestyle for users," he said.
"The powerful Kirin 970 chipsets which include a Neural-Network Processing Unit (NPU) is at the heart of Honor View 10's extreme performance. It powers a series of new AI applications which recognise different scenes when taking photos, translates different languages in real-time even without an Internet connection and understand user's behaviours and optimises the phone's performance," Zhao added.
The new Kirin 970 features an octa-core ARM Cortex CPU and a Mali-G72 12-core GPU. Honor View 10 has a special 'Gaming Suite' which significantly increases performance of mobile games.
The 3,750mAh battery and Honor SuperCharge technology make Honor View 10 ideal for gamers and heavy users. Honor SuperCharge claims to charge the battery to 50 per cent in just 30 minutes while operating at a low temperature and voltage.
Honor View 10 is equipped with a high-definition 16MP + 20MP dual-lens camera with F/1.8 wide aperture and 2-in-1 PDAF automatic focusing, enabling users to take professional photos.
Zhao said that Honor is the top smartphone e-brand in China in 2017 in terms of sales performance. The company also announced a new global growth strategy that aims to make Honor a top-three smartphone brand worldwide in five years.
Honor also announced its Structured Light and Sync Play technologies which enhance facial recognition and music playback, respectively.
