Huawei Honor View 10 8GB RAM Variant: Expected Launch in India
In India, Honor launched the 6GB RAM variant of the Honor View 10. And now that the company has come out with an 8GB RAM model in China, we can expect it to launch it in India as well. However, we are yet to hear an official confirmation regarding that from Honor. If it launches the variant in India, then we can expect it to be priced under 35K bracket. And with that kind of pricing, the phone will be competing with the likes of Asus Zenfone 5Z and the OnePlus 6 in India.
