Huawei’s Honor View 10 was announced at CES 2018 and is available for US pre-order now.
On Monday, Huawei made the Honor View 10 available for pre-order in the U.S. at a price of $499. This device, which is available in black and blue colors, will ship in the United States on March 23.
The Honor View 10 was announced by Huawei at CES 2018, the company promising it for the first half of 2018. The device was announced as the company’s latest flagship handset. However, the budget Honor X was announced as well.
Minus waterproofing, the Honor View 10 has very similar features and specifications to the Huawei Mate 10. In addition, the company is including machine learning features in the camera app of the View 10 handset. These features are expected to challenge the Galaxy S9’s Bixby.
Based on the features of the Honor View 10, the device seems to be a competitor for the OnePlus 5T. Also, it could be a cheaper rival to the Huawei Mate 10 Pro. In addition, Huawei claims that the Honor View 10 can charge up to 50% battery level within just 30 minutes.
Coming with a front-facing fingerprint scanner, the Honor View 10 also includes a 3.5mm headphone jack on the bottom.

Speaking about the Honor View 10’s AI chip, Huawei said:
The New Kirin 970 chipset brings you a faster, stronger, and seamless smartphone experience. Its built-in NPU (Neural-network Processing Unit) enables deep learning based on user behavior, ensuring your Honor View10 understands you.
With the information we have for now, the Honor View 10 in the United States is only available directly from the OEM. This is not new, as it is so with Huawei’s other handsets in the US. Recall that only recently, Heads of U.S. Intelligence Agencies told Americans not to buy Huawei phones.
