Planning to buy OnePlus 5T? Then wait a bit longer as Huawei’s Honor is planning to launch a high end smartphone to take on the much hyped OnePlus phone.
According to news agency IANS, Honor is set to launch its upcoming V10 in India in January. The Honor V10’s alleged specification are doing the rounds on the web and the phone itself is set to be launched today in China. A global launch event is scheduled on December 5 for the phone.
Just recently, the V10’s specifications were leaked on GeekBench. As per the listing on the benchmarking website, the Honor V10 has 6GB RAM and 1.84 GHz octa-core processor with expected Kirin 970 chipset. The handset is based on the Android 8.0 Oreo operating system, which suggests EMUI 8.0 just like the recently launched flagships Huawei Mate 10 and Mate 10 Pro.
The Honor V10 was listed on TENAA earlier too. As per the listing, Honor V10 features a 5.99-inch display that has a full HD+ display with 2160 x 1080 pixel resolution and 18:9 aspect ratio. It is powered by Kirin 970 processor which is coupled with 6GB RAM. It offers 64GB/128GB of internal storage, dual rear cameras of a 16-megapixel and 20-megapixel with LED flash and a 13-megapixel front-facing camera.
Meanwhile, IANS too has confirmed that the phone will have 6 GB of RAM, 128 GB of inbuilt storage, dual rear camera set up (16 + 20 MP), 13 MP front camera, 5.99 inch display, Android Oreo OS and a 3750 mAh battery.
Vs OnePlus 5T
The OnePlus 5T has 6.01 inch full Optic Amoled display that has 2160×1080 pixels display. It comes in 6 GB and 8 GB RAM variants. Made of Anodized Aluminium, the OnePlus 5T comes with Android 7.1.1 Nougat based OxygenOS. Underneath the beautiful body lies the powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor and Adreno 540 GPU.
It has 3300 mAh battery and comes with the Dash Charger. Ofcourse it has WiFi (a/b/g/n/ac), Bluetooth 5.0, GPS (with GLONASS and BeiDou and Galileo), NFC and 4G connectivities. It comes with two rear cameras with portrait mode, video stabilisation and low light photography ability. The main 16 MP camera has 1.12µm pixel sixe and aperture of f/1.7 while the secondary 20 MP camera has pixel size of 1.0 µm and aperture of f/1.7. There are two LED flash lights in the rear panel as well.
A 16 MP front camera is there in the 5T that can record full HD videos too.
The phone comes in 64 and 128 GB storage variants.
So if the alleged specifications of Honor V10 are true, then it will give a serious competition to OnePlus 5T, if priced correctly. Note that the OnePlus 5T is available for Rs 32,999 for 6 GB and Rs 37,999 for 8 GB variant.
