Honor 10i Design

This Honor 10i comes with a sleek design with a curve on all four sides that matches the frame smoothly, as well as rounded corners that make it have a comfy feel. Thanks to its curved design, the phone blends naturally on your hands and can be easily carried with one hand. Furthermore, it allows the user to access the widgets near the top screen to take an advanced selfie with one hand.

On the front side of the phone, we can notice that the screen occupies over 90{1b09b8fb2584dfb3e4aa9a8c3ead58281d36c8ce346588358e0d991cf39b6a1c} of the phone, with a small circular notch that contains the front camera and space to hear the callers just above it.

On the backside, we can notice that Honor has used nanolithography technology to create a unique hue. There is also a vertical triple camera and a circular fingerprint sensor.

And to those who prefer the classic look, the black Honor 10i is the one for you. This specific phone has a stylish and elegant look with reflective light and a shiny touch.

Additionally, the phone supports the traditional 3.5mm headphone jack but does not support the water-resistant feature and has a Micro USB port and not a USB-C.


Honor 10i screen

The HONOR 10i has a 6.21-inch IPS LCD display with a resolution of 2340 x 1080 pixels, a 415ppi density, and a 19.5: 9 aspect ratio. It also has a screen-to-body ratio of over 90{1b09b8fb2584dfb3e4aa9a8c3ead58281d36c8ce346588358e0d991cf39b6a1c}, providing a better viewing experience with full width and high clarity.

The screen offers an exceptional viewing experience and has the TüV Rheinland eye comfort mode which helps reduce blue light radiation from the screen to protect the eyes from tiredness, especially in low light conditions. You will enjoy reading on your phone like never before using the Easy Reader mode. However, the Easy Reader mode is only available exclusively for the Honor reading application.


Honor 10i performance

The Honor 10i is powered by the Huawei Kirin 710 octa-core processor that supports AI technology, and a Mali-G51 GPU that supports GPU Turbo 2.0 technology. These technologies work together to improve the tactile response by 36{1b09b8fb2584dfb3e4aa9a8c3ead58281d36c8ce346588358e0d991cf39b6a1c} and provide special enhancements while gaming.

The phone is available with 4GB RAM and a 128GB storage version that can be increased through external memory cards “MicroSD” to up to 512GB. In addition, the phone can operate two lines and supports 4G networks, Bluetooth 4.2, and Radio FM.

Both lines support 4G networks and have stable internet connectivity, enabling the device to improve the quality of calls using the intelligent communications technology that is supported by AI. This technology can recognize the user’s location, for example, knowing whether they have entered or left the elevator, and then it regains the 4G network signal in just a few seconds.


Honor 10i camera

Honor has equipped its new smartphone Honor 10i with three rear cameras. The main camera has a 24MP precision, an f/1.8 aperture, and supports autofocus. The second camera has an Ultra Wide Angle, a precision of 8MP, and an f/2.2 aperture. And the third camera is a lens that is designed to detect more details and has a 2MP precision and an f/2.4 aperture, providing an excellent shooting experience in low-light conditions. All these technologies are led by an improved AI algorithm that was developed to improve the quality of your photos.

The Honor 10i also helps you capture important and vibrant moments at night. The wide aperture f/1.8 lens enables the front camera to absorb more light into the sensor and deliver images with higher brightness without slowing down the shutter speed, thus providing better performance in low light conditions. Moreover, the Quadra CFA sensor increases the sensitivity of the camera in dark places in order to increase the brightness of the image.

The camera can recognize over 500 scenes from 22 different categories. It also applies the best settings possible to capture the perfect image thanks to AI technologies. Furthermore, the camera can identify people’s faces and the background and can enhance the shot by adjusting the exposure time and colors depending on the type of the scene. All these features enable the camera to produce professional movies and photos.

The AI Stabilizing mode helps improve photography by analyzing the vibrations caused by the hand and stabilizing the image, ensuring the capture of high-quality, vibration-free images at night.

In addition to the advanced triple-lens rear camera, the HONOR 10i provides its users with a special 32MP front camera with a wide f/2.0 aperture that delivers high-quality images. It also has an auto-beautifying algorithm for images that uses artificial intelligence techniques and adjusts the intensity of exposure to take the best selfies possible.

It is worth mentioning that the beautifying algorithm is customizable and very useful especially when taking group selfies since it applies the Bokeh effect effectively and accurately and adds beauty effects to each person’s face in the group when taking a photo with the front camera.
