The Honor 10 is an actual mid-range discount, costing half what most flagships do but packing in virtually as a lot tech and arguably an much more trendy construct than most, so we have now excessive hopes for the Honor 11.
Nothing a lot is understood concerning the cellphone to this point, however we will take some educated guesses about once we would possibly see it and what it’d function.
You’ll discover these under, together with an inventory of the issues we most need from it, to make it much more spectacular than the Honor 10.
Lower to the chase
- What’s it? The successor to the Honor 10
- When is it out? Most likely mid-2019
- What is going to it value? Doubtless at the very least £399.99 (round $540, AU$720)
Honor 11 launch date and worth
There aren’t any Honor 11 launch date rumors to this point and that’s no shock, as we most likely received’t see the Honor 11 for fairly some time on condition that the Honor 10 solely landed in mid-April.
So a launch in or round April 2019 is our greatest guess for now. That stated, the Honor 9 was introduced in June 2017, so it won’t be April, however round mid-2019 appears seemingly in any case.
Don’t rely on having the ability to purchase it within the US or Australia although, as many Honor telephones don’t hit these nations, the Honor 10 included.
As for the worth, you’re most likely taking a look at a minimal of £399.99 (about $540, AU$720), as that’s what the Honor 10 launched for. We wouldn’t be stunned if the worth goes up although.
Honor 11 information and rumors
There aren’t any Honor 11 rumors but, however some issues appear seemingly. For instance, the Honor 11 will most likely use the Kirin 980 chipset, as that’s prone to be the subsequent one within the vary, following on from the Kirin 970 discovered within the Honor 10.
It’s additionally attainable – although much less seemingly – that the Honor 11 can have an in-screen fingerprint scanner, on condition that the Honor 10 already has an under-glass one and the Porsche Design Huawei Mate RS (which is made by the identical mum or dad firm) has an in-screen scanner. Although such a function could also be reserved for the pricier Huawei P21 if it occurs in any respect.
What we wish to see
Whereas we’re ready for Honor 11 rumors, right here’s an inventory of the seven issues we most need from it.
1. Water resistance
The Honor 10 has plenty of high-end options, however one which it lacks is water resistance. Coupled with its largely glass construct that makes it really feel like a really weak cellphone, and whereas we don’t essentially wish to see too many design adjustments we wish to at the very least be capable to get it moist.
So hopefully the Honor 11 will provide some quantity of water resistance. We’d wish to see at the very least IP67 certification (which is what the likes of the iPhone X has and means it may be submerged as much as 1 meter deep for as much as 30 minutes) however the extra the higher.
2. Higher battery life
The Honor 10’s battery life is cheap, however nothing particular, lasting round a day however not rather more, as appears to be customary with telephones.
For the Honor 11 we’d wish to see that improved. If it may stretch to 2 days of life that may make all of the distinction, that means you’d be positive in case you overlook to plug it in in a single day and even making it extra viable to take tenting and to different off-grid actions.
three. The identical trendy again in additional colours
We’re massive followers of the Honor 10’s daring, reflective again that in some shades may even morph colour, however there aren’t sufficient shades accessible, and never all choices can be found in all areas.
Given how eye-catching the look is, we’d like extra alternative to tailor it to our tastes, so for the Honor 11 we wish greater than just some colour selections.
four. A sooner digital camera
The Honor 10 has a reasonably succesful dual-lens digital camera, however it may take a surprisingly very long time to start out up. Snapping is speedy sufficient as soon as it does, however the time taken to truly get into the app can imply lacking a fleeting picture alternative, so we wish to see that fastened for the Honor 11.
There’s sufficient energy within the Honor 10 that the delay shouldn’t be essential as it’s, so maybe a software program replace may repair it on the prevailing , however both method we’ll be actually unimpressed if it manifests itself once more on 2019’s cellphone.
5. Wi-fi charging
The Honor 10 helps quick charging however one factor it lacks is wi-fi charging, so we’d wish to see that remedied for the Honor 11.
Its absence is probably a cost-cutting measure, and arguably a worthwhile one because the Honor 10 offers you an terrible lot of cellphone for the cash, however hopefully the corporate can discover a approach to embody wi-fi charging on the subsequent mannequin with out pushing the worth up.
6. A microSD card slot
There’s a number of storage within the Honor 10 and that’s an excellent factor too as there’s no microSD card slot. However whereas the as much as 128GB of storage discovered within the Honor 10 must be sufficient for most individuals it received’t be sufficient for everybody, so we’d like a microSD card slot coupled with at the very least that a lot storage within the Honor 11, to maintain everybody pleased.
7. Higher low gentle images
Whereas the Honor 10’s digital camera is pretty good it’s not a match for the snappers on the Huawei P20 and Huawei P20 Pro, particularly in relation to low gentle pictures, so we’d wish to see the Honor 11 borrow from them and carry out higher when the solar begins to set.
