Key features of the HONOR 10i
Triple-Lens Camera to Capture What You See
The HONOR 10i’s 24MP primary camera captures the view with breath-taking realism, rich in detail, sharpness and colour. With the f/1.8 wide-aperture lens and the Quadra CFA sensor, the camera system boosts light sensitivity and lets more light pass through, allowing for epic shots in the low-light environments.
The 120-degree ultra-wide angle lens is a feature you will only see in premium smartphones. You will be able to capture the full scene (e.g. iconic buildings, full view of long beach, panoramic city view), regardless of where you are.
To elevate the photography game, the Super Night Shoot mode effortlessly produces silky smooth night shots without a tripod, while the AI multi-scene recognition, capable of recognizing 22 categories of objects and 500+ scenarios, helps you create professional-grade photographs with ease.

Breakthrough 32MP Selfie Camera
The HONOR 10i’s AI-enhanced 32 MP selfie camera is HONOR’s best front-facing camera setup yet. It takes selfies to another level, effortlessly converting selfies into 2.3x1.7m-sized celebrity posters without compromising on detail. The built-in AI beauty algorithms intelligently touch up selfies based on gender, age and skin tone, creating the most perfect yet natural look you could ever want.
With the AI backlighting imaging technology, the HONOR 10i selfie camera makes sure the most flattering amount of light is well-captured under any conditions – whether backlight, sidelight or front light. The impressive lighting capabilities are made possible by the flawless combination of a 32MP ISO-enhanced lens, the screen ring light-filling technology and the Quadra sensor.

Impeccable Experiences Across All Dimensions
The powerful combination of hardware and software delivers an upgraded and flagship-like experience that helps you get the most out of everything you do – all in your palm.

With a minimalist dew-drop notch and an over 90% screen-to-body ratio, its 6.21-inch FullView HD screen creates an immersive entertainment experience.

Based on the EMUI 9.0 operating system, the HONOR 10i enables a smarter life. The EMUI 9.0, optimized by the latest Android 9 system, represents an overall software upgrade that features a concise user interface, enhances data management system and optimises user experience. Not only will the phone be your dedicated and caring personal assistant that counts calories in every meal with just a scan on the food but will also be your own personal search engine that answers all of the questions.

Deal to create largest Arab digital marketing network

ArabClicks, a performance-based e-marketing platform, has signed a joint strategic cooperation agreement with Basma Media, developer of omnesmedia.com. The two parties aim to build effective relationships and foster business connections between publishers and social media influencers on the one hand, and various e-commerce platforms operating in the Arab world on the other, thus laying the foundation stone for the largest digital marketing network in the Arab region.

The agreement was signed by ArabClicks Co-founder and CEO Mauro Romano, and Nasser Al-Sarami, CEO of Basma Media, at the latter’s headquarters in Dubai Media City.

According to the agreement, Basma Media will work with various publishers, media professionals and social media influencers in the Arab world to familiarize them with the mechanism employed by ArabClicks and then connect them to the platform. The intent is to benefit from the media content provided by these publishers to promote commodities and products marketed across Arab e-commerce platforms such as Noon, Namshi, Sivvi, Java, eBay and Tajawal, and benefit from sales commissions.

Romano said: “We are delighted to partner with Basma Media to reach out to the largest segment of media professionals and influencers in the Arab world. Through the partnership, we seek to capitalize on the exponential growth of e-commerce which has become a key business sector in the Middle East, where ArabClicks is supporting and assisting various businesses in enhancing their market share of the steadily growing electronic sales in the region.”

Al-Sarami said: “Over the past two years, we have been working at Basma Media to strengthen the omnesmedia.com platform with as many databases as possible for the benefit of media organizations and influencers. Today, the platform incorporates a database of more than 10,000 influencers and around 35,000 geographically diversified influential media people, in addition to 3,000 freelance gifted innovators working in various media production fields as well as 23,000 titles for various media products representing seven different types of mass media covering 35 countries all over the world, a record which makes us one of the key and largest media references on the Arab and international levels. And that’s the reason it would be easy for ArabClicks to deliver its message through omnesmedia.com in a successful way to the benefit of all parties concerned, including influencers and publishers as well as brands, rights holders and e-commerce platforms.”

Romano added: “With its innovative marketing tools based on transforming web content into a potential source of revenue, ArabClicks provides assistance to e-commerce companies to enhance their reach to various segments of society and to grow in the Middle East market, therefore, helping publishers do business and make easy money through web links, seamlessly and without introducing any changes to the published content or disturbing site users in any way.”
