Keeping up with the latest Artificial Intelligence or AI obsession that handset makers have, Huawei's Honor 10 has the tagline 'Beauty in AI'. It also includes another recent obsession, which is the iPhone X-like notch on the display.
Even though the global launch is in UK, the launch of the phone had happened in China in April this year. At launch, the phone sported a 5.84-inch display with a 19:9 aspect ratio. It packed a Kirin 970 SoC and ran on Huawei’s EMUI 8.1 skin, which is based on Android 8.1 Oreo.
