New Delhi: Honor 10 was launched in India on Tuesday at an event in London.
The smartphone was first launched in China last month and is the Huawei brand Honor’s flagship offering. The Honor 10 will go on sale exclusively via Flipkart in India from Wednesday.
It has several highlights, including its top-end HiSilicon Kirin 970 SoC that’s paired with 6GB of RAM, a dual rear camera setup, a 19:9 FullView display with an iPhone X-like notch, and a 24-megapixel front camera.
The company is touting several AI 2.0-based features, from beautification and face recognition, to UX features in its EMUI 8.1 custom Android ROM that’s based on Android 8.1 Oreo. Finally, the Honor 10 also sports a gradient colour finish, similar to the Pink Gold and Twilight colour variants we last saw on the flagship-level Huawei P20 Pro and Huawei P20 smartphones.
Honor 10 price in India has been set at Rs. 32,999 for the 6GB RAM and 128GB inbuilt storage variant in India – the company has chosen not to launch the 6GB RAM and 64GB inbuilt storage in the country. It will be available from midnight, Wednesday, May 16 in India, exclusively via Flipkart.
The company has also chosen only to launch two colour variants in the country – Midnight Black and Phantom Blue.
