Honor introduced its latest flagship smartphone, the Honor 10 for global markets, including India, at an event held in London. However, the price of the new product from Huawei met all expectations. "It sports a 5.84" full-HD+ (1080×2280 pixels) LCD 19:9 display with iPhone X-like notch on the top. The smartphone comes with the price tag of Rs 32,999 and will be available exclusively on Flipkart starting from May 16. As for cameras, there's a dual 16MP and 24MP setup on the rear, both of which are assisted by AI trickery, while a 24MP front snapper will make sure your Friday night pub selfies are a lot more detailed than you'd like.
"We are delighted to announce that Flipkart will be our exclusive online sale partner for Honor 10". 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. The main attraction of Honor 10 is the integration of a HiSilicon Kirin 970 processor coupled with 6GB RAM.
The screen bears an 86.2 percent screen-to-body ratio, which provides an excellent viewing experience.
