Honor 10: Release date, price, specs and all the latest news
The Honor 10 was launched in China earlier this month, where it’s called the Glory 10; and now the firm is looking to bring it to other markets. Here’s everything we know about the Honor 10, including all the latest Honor 10 news, rumours and leaks, plus speculative release date and pricing details.

Honor 10 Design and Specs: What does it look like, and is it powerful?
We have a good idea of what to expect when the Honor 10 hits the shelves, and that’s because it was launched in China under a different moniker on April 27. That’s not to mean it will sport the same design when it’s released in Europe, though: manufacturers often spruce up their handsets for the Chinese market.
That said, there’s a good chance the Honor 10 will be near-identical to the Glory 10 from a cosmetic standpoint, with the bulk of the construction comprising of a mixture of metal and glass – the former makes up the frame that runs around the side of the unit holding everything in place, and the latter both the front and back.
The Honor 10 will be available in a similar “Twilight” finish to the Huawei P20 Pro, a smartphone manufactured by Honor’s parent firm Huawei, according to a render that surfaced on Chinese social networking website Weibo on April 10. The handset in the image also bears an uncanny resemblance to the Glory 10.
It’s likely the Honor 10 will come with the same 5.8-inch near-edge-to-edge screen, Kirin 970 CPU, 4/6GB of RAM, 64/128GB of internal storage, dual-camera (24MP + 16MP) and 3400mAh battery as the Glory 10. It’s also expected to ship running Android 8.1 Oreo skinned with Honor’s love-it-or-loathe-it EMUI interface.

Honor 10 Release Date and Price: When does it come out, and how much will it cost?
Honor has announced that it will take the wraps off the Honor 10 at a dedicated launch event in London on May 15. There’s no word on pricing, though seeing as the Glory 10 starts at £300 in China, we’re guessing it will retail for somewhere in the region of £250 to £350 when it hits the shelves in the United Kingdom.
The former flagship Honor 9, for comparison, commanded a modest £299 when it was released back in June 2017. It was also available for free on a number of 24-month contracts from the region’s leading carriers, so there’s a good chance the same promotion will be offered for the Honor 10 when it’s launched next week.
