Huawei Honor V10 – Cheaper Than Mate 10 Pro

Huawei Honor V10 Teaser

Honor is a sub-brand to Huawei for less expensive phones. Huawei plans to reveal Huawei Honor V10 in London on the 5th of December and a pre-launch event in China is planned on the 28th of November.

The information received so far points to a cheaper version than the just-released Huawei Mate 10 Pro.

Specs

The new Huawei Honor V10 employs the latest AI-enabled octa-core Kirin 970 processor, which has a clock frequency of 2.36 GHz and access to 6 GB of RAM memory. There are two storage options available: 64 GB and 128 GB.

The phone sports two dual rear cameras. The rear camera duo has a resolution of 20 MP and 16 MP. The front selfie camera is also powerful at 13 MP as one would expect from a Chinese smartphone vendor that emphasises photo quality and has partnered with the German phone maker Leica.

The screen essentially measures almost 6-inches (it’s actually 5.99-inches) and has a resolution of 2,160 x 1,080.

A Chinese tech site expects V10 to “only” run Android v7.0 even though many phones currently receive Android 8 Oreo updates.

Pricing

The price is CNY2,999 which converts to NZ$765 inclusive of GST. The Mate 10 Pro phone costs $1,299 and the Mate 10 currently retails at$966. The price difference is actually really large, so we predict that the Honor V10 will cost a bit more when it arrives in New Zealand compared to the “Chinese price”.

The question is whether V10 undercuts Mate 10 Pro and also Mate 10 Lite too much in terms of price? Will consumers start questioning the price tags of other related models Huawei models considering the similar specs?
