Today, Honor launched their 2018 flagship smartphone, the Honor 10. This flagship device has a dual 24MP AI camera, “Aurora Glass” design, 5.84″ FullView display, and “Ultrasonic” fingerprint scanner. The company says this phone reveals two “major ground-breaking” and “industry-leading” smartphone technologies. The first is the advanced AI 2.0 technology, applied chiefly to the smartphone’s dual-lens camera. Second is the Honor 10 CMF1 design, which is comprised of a 3D glass back with a nano-scale optical coating composed of 15 layers of shimmering color.
According to George Zhao, President of Honor, before 2016, most phones came in just three colors: black, white and gold. Honor introduced Phantom Blue in 2016, Phantom Grey in 2017, and now the exquisite Aurora, a true breakthrough in smartphone design.
“We believe the recipe of success is simple – give consumers a really good product! That’s what we work hard for every day at honor,” said George Zhao, President of Honor. “But we don’t just stop at making a good product. We want to co-create a new lifestyle with young people worldwide. We listen to them, we bounce ideas around with them, and we cheer for them. They are our inspiration.”
