Huawei Honor has launched two smartphones in a launch event held in London. The smartphone, which delivers full-screen viewing experience, will retail at AED 999.

This premium smartphone flaunts a 5.99-inch full-HD+ (1080×2160 pixels) IPS LCD FullView display with a pixel density of 403ppi and an 18:9 aspect ratio.

The Honor 7X features a dual-lens camera composition with a 16MP main sensor and 2MP assistive sensor. The smartphone is powered by Huawei's custom Kirin 659 processor paired with 4GB of RAM and a 3,340mAh battery. This is something that was previously on the Huawei phones that have Leica-branded cameras, so this is a good feature to bring to the Honor 7X.

Honor 7X will be exclusively available on Amazon India from December 7.

The Honor View 10 is a flagship device just like the Mate 10 Pro, packing almost the same specs but with a cheaper price tag.

Apple To Be Charged $15 Billion As Back Tax By Ireland
The $15,4 billion will start flowing into Irish coffers in Q1 2018, but Apple continues to deny any wrongdoing. Then, Ireland disagreed with the Commission's analysis and appealed the decision.

Honor outlined their ambitions at the launch two new devices, the Honor View 10 and Honor 7X, the former acting as the new flagship for the manufacturer.

The Honor View 10 runs on Android 8.0 Oreo with the company's EMUI 8.0 skinned on top. Cameras are the major difference between the Honor 7X and Honor 9i as the latter comes with dual selfie cameras. There is NFC, Bluetooth 4.2, 3.5mm audio jack and a USB-C port. The Honor View10 comes powered by the top-tier Kirin 970 SoC mated to 6GB of RAM. Below the display, you'll find a fingerprint sensor, seemingly shoehorned into the bottom bezel with barely enough space. The phone draws power from a non-removable 3340 mAh battery.

Other AI based features on the Honor View 10 include an AI-accelerated translator and Smart Tips, apart from intelligent scene and object recognition, as well as motion detection that will adjust camera settings.

On the design front, the new Honor 7X has a whiff of a knock-off iPhone 7 Plus about it. The front camera is a 13MP sensor.

We may see more about the View 10 at CES since there are now no pricing or availability details. The memory is expandable as well up to 256GB via a MicroSD card. The smartphone comes with a price tag of Euro 499, which roughly translate to Rs 38,000 and it come in Black, Aurora Blue, Gold and Red colour options. Honor claims that its fast charging technology can charge the battery up to 50 percent in just 30 minutes. The set price is Euro 499.9 /449.99 GBP for those, which in the United States would likely translate to $499, placing it in a direct clash with the OnePlus 5T.
