Mister Ming says that the process of unlocking the V10 through the use of face unlocking technology is as fast, if not faster than iPhone X’s Face ID. It also comes with a smart lock screen notification system based on face recognition.

Another interesting feature is the physical Home button Huawei managed to add to the front of the handset although it features an 18:9 Full HD+ display. Also comes with a dual camera at the back comprised of 2x 20MP sensors with f/1.8 aperture and portrait mode with bokeh effect. The front-facing camera has a 13MP sensor.

In addition, it comes in 4GB of RAM + 64GB internal storage and 6GB of RAM + 64 / 128 GB of internal storage versions, it has 4G, VoLTE, NFC, and SuperCharge (fast charging) technology.
