In the UK it’s £399 for the 128GB model, which is the only storage version coming to Europe. And It’s available to buy right now.
Honor 10 design and screen.
The first thing to note about the new device is that there is the same “notch” design at the top of the screen that we’re now seeing on a lot of Android phones. Notches, to be truthful and they’re hardly intrusive when they’re minimal in size like this; the Honor 10’s is a lot smaller than the notch on the iPhone X. .

Honor 10 screen is a 5.84-inch, 19:9 aspect ratio Full HD (1080 x 2280 pixels) IPS LCD screen. Yes, there’s a notch, it has a Front-facing under-glass fingerprint scanner.

Honor 10 hardware and battery specification.
The Honor handset features HiSilicon Kirin 970 processor, as found in the Huawei P20, which has a good performer.

Honor’s last few top-end phones have been impressive, so the Honor 10 is no exception. There’s a lot to love here, especially considering the price compared with other flagships, and particularly the camera is something to fall in love with, not to forget the display and the overall design is simply epic.
