Huawei’s sub-brand Honor is gearing up to bring its latest flagship, Honor 10. The Honor 10 is set to globally launch on May 15 and will go on sale in India on May 16 exclusively via Flipkart. The smartphone will directly compete against the Xiaomi Mix 2S and the upcoming OnePlus 6.
The Honor 10 was introduced in China last month, so we have a clear picture of what the specifications of the smartphone will be. The Honor 10 features a 5.84-inch IPS LCD display with a resolution of 1080×2280 pixels and a 19:9 aspect ratio. The smartphone is powered by the company’s homegrown Hisilicon Kirin 970 chipset. The device packs in 4GB or 6GB of RAM coupled with 64GB or 128GB of onboard storage.
The smartphone runs on Android 8.1 Oreo with EMUI 8.1 skin layered on top of it out of the box. Under the hood, there is a 3400mAh battery powering up the internals. The smartphone also sports a fingerprint sensor up front.
On the optics front, the Honor 10 sports a dual-camera setup at the back consisting of a 16-megapixel and a 24-megapixel sensor. Up front, there is a 24-megapixel selfie shooter.
In terms of connectivity, the Honor 10 supports Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.2, GPS, NFC, Infrared port and a USB Type-C port for charging and data syncing.
Price and Availability
Though we know the specifications, for the pricing we still have to wait for the official launch. However, in China, the smartphone starts at a price of CNY 2,599 (roughly Rs. 27,700). So we can expect the smartphone to be priced somewhere around Rs. 32,000 in India. Honor flagship is set to go on sale in India on May 16 midnight exclusively via Flipkart.
