After being on available on pre-order for about a week now, Honor‘s latest flagship, the Honor 10 is now available for direct purchase. The smartphone has launched as a Flipkart exclusive product that offers a flagship-level experience at mid-range level pricing. It brings forth much-needed improvements over its predecessor, the Honor View 10 (review), and continues the ‘flagship-killer’ trend that we so dearly enjoy. This smartphone is undoubtedly going to give some well-needed competition to the latest OnePlus 6, which coincidently went on sale just yesterday.

Honor 10: Price in India

The Honor 10 does seem to incur a slight premium over its predecessor. The company has launched only one storage variant of the new smartphone in the country where you will get 6GB of RAM coupled with 128GB of internal storage at a price of Rs.32,999. It is currently available for purchase either through Flipkart or directly through the HiHonor online store. Buyers can avail an extended 1-year warranty by Flipkart Protect and also a 1-year screen protection plan by paying Rs.1,199 and Rs.899 extra respectively. There are four total colour variants that this phone can come in, but the company is presently offering only two options in India. The Phantom Blue model has a glossy reflective back that wonderfully changes colour when looked at from different angles. If you desire a more subtle look, then the Midnight Black colour variant would be the one for you.

Honor 10: Specification, Features

The Honor 10 flaunts a 5.84-inch FullView IPS display with 1080 x 2280 Full HD+ resolution and 19:9 aspect ratio. This time you do get a notch at the top which has allowed the Honor 10 to achieve its 86.2% screen-to-body ratio. Both the front and back of this device is covered in smooth glass. Consequently, we get the industry-first, Ultrasonic under-glass fingerprint scanner present in a tiny chin just below the display. A HiSilicon’s Kirin 970 octa-core processor clocked at 2.36 GHz paired with a Mali-G72 MP12 GPU keep this phone ticking. As mentioned earlier, the version launching in India comes with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of onboard storage, which is sadly not expandable. In terms of software, the phone offers Android 8.0 Oreo out-of-the-box which runs the company’s EMUI 8.0 skin on top.

In the imaging department, the phone employs a 16MP + 24MP AI dual-camera setup at the rear with a wide f/1.8 aperture lens and real-time AI scene recognition of 500+ scenarios in 22 categories. With an independent NPU in the Kirin 970 chipset, the Honor 10’s fast and efficient AI algorithm is able to pair subjects with optimal camera setting and image context to help users take professional-looking photos. The front houses a 24MP sensor which also utilises AI with Light Fusion Technology to allow users to capture great selfies even in low light. Powering this entire ordeal is a 3400mAh non-removable battery with Honor Fast Charge technology.
