After previewing the phone last year, Huawei is officially bringing in the Honor View 10 to Malaysia.

Sub-2k phone

The phone was recently launched in India and is going on preorder from 8 January onwards. It will start selling officially from 12 January for RM2099.

The first 1000 early birds to preorder will get an RM699 giftpack that includes the Honor Band A2 and a Final Fantasy redemption card. The preorders will be open on four online sites: Vmall, Lazada, Shoppe and 11Street.

With two colour options, blue and black, the View 10 will come with 6GB RAM and 128GB storage. It will also have a 6in Full HD IPS display and a dual rear camera combo of 16MP and 20MP, with a 13MP front camera and a 3750mAh battery.

Most significantly, Huawei's much-touted Kirin 970 neural-network processing unit powers this phone - the very same one that powers its recently launched flagships, the Huawei Mate 10 and Mate 10 Pro.

Look out for the phone once it makes its official appearance next week.
