It’s been so long since we did not hear about Huawei’s Honor V10, and today we found a new render that shows it with a display in an 18:9 aspect ratio. Let’s analyze it below in our dedicated article.
This new smartphone should be launched in December, more precisely on December 5th. Interestingly, the device seemed to arrive before the estimated date, months ago, which was about to begin in 2018.
From the rendering, we can notice the change bigger than the predecessor, or the 18:9 aspect ratio. This new smartphone should, therefore, align with many other products that have been characterized during the year for display in this report and thin frames.
However, the sensor for fingerprint recognition remains incognito. In a leak depicting the display panel, you could notice the space reserved for the sensor and the Home button on the bottom frame, while in the most recent rendering – the button seems to have disappeared.
It is likely that Honor will move it to the rear in the end, like many other competitors, but it is also possible that the recent render is not so similar to reality. In short, there is still a lofty mystery about the smartphone. We will update you clearly as soon as we know more about it.
Before we conclude, let’s remember that a few months ago, we talked a lot about this smartphone and its potential AI. The smartphone that will replace Honor V9 will integrate the new Kirin 970 chip, which is actually the second Huawei-Honor smartphone with this SoC.
The Kirin 970 is powered by an Octacore CPU and a next-generation 12-core Mali G72MP12 GPU. The chip was built using an advanced 10nm process, and the chipset includes 5.5 billion transistors in an area of just one cm². The new Kirin 970 chipset is the first Huawei mobile computing platform AI equipped with a neural processing unit (NPU), a neural computing unit.
