Yes. You’ve read that right. The Honor 10 is equipped with the same processor that runs the P20 and P20 Pro. It has a 5.84 IPS LCD display with FHD+ resolution and also utilizes a notch to house the front camera and other sensors.. Like the P20, this one also has 4GB of RAM and 128GB of storage.

At the back of the device is a dual rear camera system that uses 24MP (Monochrome) + 16MP (RGB) sensors, plus AI-assisted scene detection. Unlike the P20, though, there’s no Leica branding here.  At the front is a 24MP snapper with portrait mode and studio effects.

It runs on EMUI 8.1 and packs a 3,400mAh battery compatible with Huawei’s SuperCharge technology. Unlike the P20 and P20 Pro, this one retains the 3.5mm headphone jack, while still retaining a USB Type-C port. It also has an IR blaster.
