honor’s next phone is basically an affordable version of the Mate 10 Pro

The upcoming honor V10 or honor 9 Pro has had its specs revealed by TENAA and so far they’re looking kinda like that of the Mate 10 Pro.

As of the moment, the Mate 10 phones are on the top of Huawei’s list of more powerful devices (but minus the atrocious pricetag) but it looks like a new contender for the spot is coming.

As for the specs, the device will have a pretty big 6″ screen with 18:9 aspect ratio like the Mate 10 Pro, a Kirin 970 chipset mated to 6GB RAM and Android 8.0 Oreo skinned with EMUI 8.0 out of the box. Potential customers will also have the choice between 64GB or 128GB storage. The back of the device will be home to a 16MP +20MP dual camera sporting the same hardware as the Leica camera but sans some software features.

No word on the battery life as of the moment but the device will get fast charge (22.5W).

As for the price, the device is cheaper than the Mate 10 and Mate 10 Pro, with an estimated retail price of CNY 3,000 (about RM1914) which is much more affordable versus the Mate 10’s CNY 3,999 price tag (about RM2551).

Also, a leaked render for the device has also popped up. It seems somewhat featureless from the front but the phone appears to be near bezel-less, and that’s a good thing. The frame hints at a rose gold (or pink) colour variant.

We’re expecting the device to launch on the company’s December event, so hopefully more will be revealed soon.

since 1+5T is just around the corners, i believe thats why honor is releasing it fast.

I think that huawei put themselves to be a competitor of samsung,lg,oppo,htc,pixel,zte devices while honor is more lean towards oneplus,xiomi and nubia.


Which is more value for money, this new honor V10 or the HTC U ultra.



    The Kirin 970 is a more powerful chipset compared to the SD 821 and has better GPU.


Honor 9 Pro (V10) is much better off than 1+5T in terms of update……even Honor 8 Pro is superb in terms of speed, battery life,camera and slim at 6.9mm.

hope V10 is also keeping the same slimness and introduce new Pantone color for the body.


    How would you know that when the phone is not even out? and I would disagree. OP has one of the fastest updates and custom developer support out there right after Google phones.


      my thought, he said update,maybe he means upgrade, 1+5 to 1+5T, soc still the same, camera module n screen will be differ, h8 pro(honor v9) to h9 pro(honor v10), soc, screen, camera upgrade.

      but still,it still an assumption though. software update,yup,1+ seems got better software update, but dont count 3rd party developer software cuz that isnt oem update, still depending whether 3rd party willingness to create a custom rom for certain devices or not.
