Unlike the Honor 7X, the Honor View 10 will come with Android 8.0 Oreo-based EMUI 8.0 out of the box. The View 10 is also the first Honor-branded phone to use Huawei SuperCharge (rebranded to Honor SuperCharge, naturally) - the same 5V/4.5A charging implementation that we've been impressed by in premium Huawei phones for the past year. The Honor V10 will be making its way to India soon for a yet unspecified price. Front 13 megapixel camera.

As for the specifications, the Honor 7X gets the 5.93-inch full HD+ LCD display sporting a resolution of 2160x1080 pixels. There are three variants to choose from - 4GB RAM with 64GB internal memory and 6GB RAM plus 64/128GB storage.

Needless to say, given the same core specs we saw on the Mate 10 Pro, the Honor View 10's performance was flawless in the brief time we spent with the device.

The size is not so different but only a few millimeters is how they differ, but the Honor 7x and 9i are slimmer than the 6x because they have larger bodies and thus can accommodate the same battery in a slimmer body. On the power front, it packs Huawei's octa-core HiSilicon Kirin 970 SoC backed by 6 RAM and 128 GB expandable storage.

The classic metal design of the Honor 7X is a delight to hold, with its perfectly rounded edges.

However, Honor 7X has specifically been introduced to the Indian market.

It's the same setup that gave the Mate 10 Pro's camera its clever object recognition capabilities, and Honor tells us the View 10 will receive the same functionality. The Honor 7X is shaping up to be a great smartphone, especially for those that don't want to spend a ton of cash.

The second attraction is the dual-lens 16MP + 2MP rear camera captures moments in the highest definition thereby invoking the photographer inside you. In the demo, we also got to see the camera used to animate cartoon characters from facial mapping in 3D.

When it comes to looks, the Honor 7x is the best looking phone of the three, though each of them has a metal backplate and they also possesses nearly the same connectivity ports and buttons, with the presence of a hybrid SIM slot.

The handset runs Android 8.0 with EMUI 8 to keep things refreshed.

This Honor 7X device rolls with a 3340 mAh battery and the following physical dimensions: 156.5mm (L) x 75.3mm (W) x 7.6mm (T). Honor claims that its fast charging technology can charge the battery up to 50 percent in just 30 minutes.
