Honor View 10 software update brings EIS, thermal optimization and more
If you’re in the market for a (relatively) inexpensive high-end smartphone stateside, and the $500 Huawei Mate 10 Pro still feels too rich for your blood, the Honor View 10 can be a solid choice at a discounted unlocked price of $429.

The Kirin 970-powered 6-incher has been available even cheaper recently, and soon enough, it should score a pretty major software update. Already based on Android 8.0 Oreo, the no-notch handset is looking at an over-the-air UI revision pack weighing around 700MB.

A “staged” rollout has begun earlier today in India, which means not all users will receive the update at the same time. But as long as no catastrophic bugs arise, this is likely to be expanded worldwide in a matter of days. A week or two, tops.

The most significant change is by far the addition of electronic image stabilization (EIS) functionality, which Honor describes perfectly in the official release notes of this latest system makeover. EIS is defined as an “image enhancement technique which minimizes blurring and compensates for device shake while capturing video.” Not to be confused with OIS (optical image stabilization), which needs to be built into the actual hardware equipment, EIS is essentially the next best thing.

In the case of the Honor View 10, it’s set to improve an already robust pair of 20 and 16MP rear-facing cameras, combining a monochrome and RGB lens for an extremely versatile shooting experience.

Of course, there are other things the phone’s newest software update takes care of, including thermal optimization, security enhancements, and the addition of a call recording feature, as well as a Ride Mode.
