Honor 10: India Launch on May 15

The Honor 10 teasers from Flipkart confirm the flagship smartphone will be launched exclusively on Flipkart on the 15th of this month. It should be noted that Honor will also be holding a launch event for the smartphone’s global unveiling in London on the same day. The Honor 10 was announced in China last month.

Honor 10: Expected Price in India

The Honor 10 is expected to be priced somewhere around the Rs.35,000 mark at launch in India. While Honor offers the smartphone in 64GB and 128GB storage variants in China, we expect only the 128GB storage variant to be launched here.

Honor 10: Specifications, Features

The Honor 10 sports a 5.84-inch IPS LCD display with 1080 x 2160 Full HD+ resolution and a 19:9 aspect ratio. Unlike the Honor View 10, the Honor 10 sports an iPhone X style display notch. The notch houses the selfie camera, ambient light sensor, and the proximity sensor. Powering the Honor 10 is a HiSilicon Kirin 970 octa-core processor, the same chip powering the Honor View 10 and the current Huawei flagships. The octa-core processor is paired with 6GB of RAM in the 128GB storage variant. There is no microSD card slot on the Honor 10, so further expansion isn’t possible.

At the back is a 16MP + 24MP dual-lens camera system with 2x optical zoom, AI scene recognition, and 4K video recording. On the front of the handset is a 24-megapixel resolution snapper with AI beautification feature and Face Unlock support. The smartphone also packs a 3400mAh battery with 5V and 4.5A Super Charge. In terms of software, the Honor 10 ships with Android 8.1 Oreo-based EMUI 8.1.
