[Update: May 2nd]: Honor has officially confirmed that its upcoming flagship will be launched by May end. The Flipkart-exclusive smartphone is expected to be priced around Rs 35,000.
Huawei’s sub-brand, Honor recently launched its latest flagship called Honor 10 in China. The successor to the Honor 9 (first impressions), the smartphone borrows the design from recently-launched Huawei’s P20 and P20 Pro (first impressions). Now, it has been brought to 91mobiles’ attention that the Honor’s latest smartphone might be headed to India soon.
According to a teaser spotted on the e-commerce website, Flipkart, the Honor 10 is heading to India sooner than we thought. In the image, we can see a heavy truck carrying the digit ‘10′ on its back with the text ‘The OnePlus Killer is on its way!’. The teaser also goes on to claim that the upcoming smartphone is the most stunning ever, has the best flagship performance and will redefine camera experience with artificial intelligence.
To recap on the flagship, the smartphone comes with a 5.84-inch LCD display with a notch up top and bears a resolution of 2,280 x 1,080 pixels. At its core is the top-tier Kirin 970 SoC mated to 6GB of RAM. The brand is offering the smartphone in two storage options – 64GB and 128GB. In the camera department, the phone features a 24-megapixel primary snapper, coupled with a 16-megapixel secondary shooter on the back. For selfies, there is a 24-megapixel camera on the front. Both cameras utilise AI capabilities to enhance the imaging experience. Other salient features include a nearly-invisible ultrasonic fingerprint scanner on the front, face unlock, premium glass sandwich design, Android 8.1 Oreo and a 3,400mAh battery.
As of now, Indian launch and availability details of the smartphone is not known. However, it’s set to be unveiled globally on May 15th in London. In China, the Honor 10 has been priced at RMB 2,699 (~Rs 28,500) for the 64GB variant and RMB 2,999 (~Rs 31,500) for the 128GB model, which will make it a strong contender for the upcoming OnePlus 6.
