Huawei’s subbrand Honor launched its flagship smartphone Honor 10 last month in China. The smartphone is slated to debut globally in London on 15th May.
Now, the company has confirmed that the Honor 10 will be launched in India by the end of this month. Honor further revealed that the smartphone will be available for purchase exclusively through online retailer Flipkart.
Earlier, the company had teased the smartphone as “The OnePlus Killer” and claimed that the Honor 10 is the most stunning smartphone ever that deliver best flagship performance. Honor said that the phone will redefine the camera experience through AI (Artificial Intelligence).
The Honor 10 comes with an aluminum frame that is flanked between glass panels on both sides. It features a 5.84-inch Full HD IPS LCD display with 2280 x 1080 pixels screen resolution and 19:9 aspect ratio.
Under the hood, the handset is powered by HiSilicon Kirin 970 processor that is coupled with 6GB RAM and either 64GB or 128GB storage depending upon the region. The device packs two cameras on the back, one with a 24-megapixel sensor and another with a 16-megapixel lens. There’s also a 24-megapixel front-facing snapper for taking self-portraits.
The device runs Android 8.1 Oreo operating system out of the box, which is based on Huawei’s own EMUI 8.1. The phone is backed by a 3,400mAh battery and comes equipped with support for SuperCharge 5V/4.5A fast charging.
Notably, the global unveiling of the Honor 10 is just a day before the scheduled launch of the OnePlus’ upcoming flagship smartphone — OnePlus 6. Honor 10 will be competing against the OnePlus 6, but the pricing will play a major role in the success of these devices, especially in a market like India.
The Honor 10 is currently available in China. While the 6GB RAM and 64GB storage model costs 2,599 Yuan (approximately Rs. 27,240), the 6GB RAM and 128GB storage variant is priced at 2,999 Yuan, which roughly converts to Rs. 31,433.
