Honor 10 Launched: Everything you need to know

Huawei's sub smartphone brand officially launched the Honor 10 in London for a price of Rs 32,999. Under the hood, the device is powered by an octa core AI backed Huawei Kirin 970 processor along with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage.

Coming to the camera department, it sports a dual rear camera setup with a 16MP primary RGB sensor camera with LED flash, and a secondary 24MP Monochrome sensor with f/1.8 aperture, depth focus, PDAF, and CAF. As with any major smartphone launch, Honor and Flipkart are running some exciting offers on the Honor 10 for the early birds. It boils down to price: the Honor 10 can be had from today for as little as €399 for the 64GB variant, while the 128GB model will cost €449 or £399 in the United Kingdom, and Rs. 33,000 for the 6GB/128GB option in India - a fair bit cheaper than the £599 (€649) P20 with 4GB RAM / 128GB of storage.

To further sweeten the deal, Flipkart is giving additional 10% instant cash discount for Axis card users. The phone will be available for purchase through homegrown online marketplace Flipkart. "Honor introduced Phantom Blue in 2016, Phantom Grey in 2017 and now the exquisite Aurora, a true breakthrough in smartphone design", said Honor President George Zhao. It'll also be available to buy via Hi Honor online store in India. The Honor 10 has a slightly bigger 5.84 FHD+ FHD+ IPS LCD display with 2280 x 1080px resolution with a notch on the top. Unlike the Honor View 10, the Honor 10 does have a notch on the top, which has made it possible for Honor to achieve a screen-to-body ratio of 86.2%. The device supports storage expansion up to 256GB via microSD. 3D Portrait Lighting is available as well, creating professional studio lighting effects using both front and rear cameras.

Another notable aspect of the Honor 10 is its build quality and colorway. The front-facing camera also enables the Face Unlock feature. Both models feature fingerprint sensors on the chin.

The Honor 10 runs on the Android 8.1 Oreo-based EMUI 8.1 software out of the box.

Connectivity features include Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac dual-band, Bluetooth 4.2 Low Energy, GPS with A-GPS, GLONASS, NFC, USB Type-C, and 4G VoLTE.
