Honor V10's bezel-less design leaked ahead of November 28 launch

Huawei sub-brand Honor will hold an event in China next week on November 28 where it is expected to unveil the Honor V10. The company's flagship smartphone is expected to sport an edge-to-edge display, similar to the Honor 9i and Honor 7X. After being spotted on TENAA earlier this week, a fresh live image of the phone has surfaced that seems to confirm its bezel-less design.

The leaked live image of the Honor V10 via Weibo only shows the front of the phone, revealing a display with minimal bezels and curved glass on top. This backs past rumours that the handset will sport an 18:9 aspect ratio. While it's hard to know the exact dimensions of the device from the image, the V10 is tipped to sport a 5.99-inch FullView Full HD+ (1080x2160) display, as per the recent TENAA listing. The Chinese certification site revealed a render of the phone's back, which looks oddly similar to the Honor 7X. This suggests that the V10 is perhaps a more premium version of the 7X.

The Honor V10 is expected to be powered by a Kirin 970 chipset coupled with 6GB of RAM and either 64GB or 128GB of internal storage. As per past renders, it is expected to bear a dual camera setup on the back with one 20-megapixel sensor and one 16-megapixel sensor. The front camera will see a 13-megapixel sensor and the handset is said to run on the latest EMUI 8 based on Android 8.0 Oreo. The fingerprint sensor will be placed on the back and the handset is expected to house a 3570mAh battery.

Honor's upcoming smartphone is rumoured to carry a price tag of CNY 2,999 (approx Rs 29,500), which means it will look to take on the OnePlus 5T. In India, the OnePlus 5T is priced at Rs 32,999 for the base variant. OnePlus' latest flagship had its first sale on Tuesday and will go on early access sale once again on Friday on Amazon India and OnePlusStore.in.

Following its unveiling on November 28, the Honor V10 will be launched globally on December 5. There's no word as of now on whether the V10 will reach the Indian market. Honor is already planning to launch the cheaper 7X in the country next month, which bears a design language similar to the V10, if recent images are true.
