Huawei has been doing pretty well in the budget segment for itself with the Honor brand and the company will be announcing the new Honor 10 globally at an event in London. The phone will be sold exclusively on Flipkart and will go on sale from 00:00 hours on May 16. Huawei is the next biggest smartphone marketplace worldwide while Honor has been able to break into the top five in India. The 6GB/64GB Honor 10 starts at CNY 2,599 (roughly Rs 27,400), while 6GB/128GB model is priced at CNY 2,999 (roughly Rs 31,600). The official India price of the Honor 10 is yet to be revealed by the company, but taking into consideration the China price, we are expecting the phone to come to be at par with that, have a starting price of around Rs 30,000.
Honor 10 will launch today at an event being held at the old Billings gate.
As for reasons to opt for the new Honor 10, well there are plenty.
The Indian price will be clear once the phone will be launch in India, possibly until the next Tuesday we will get more details on the phone. It is widely speculated that upcoming Honor 10 would be available at a price of around Rs 35,000. In tech2's opinion, Honor 10 and the Huawei P20 Lite look very similar from the front. It will be available in Black, Gold and Blue colour variants. The same colours are expected to come to India as well. The teaser image clearly shows the design and dual rear cameras, and it is making number 7 sign which hints it could be the Honor 7C. Coming to the specifications, the Honor 10 will boast of the same hardware and software setup as the Chinese variant.
It comes in 32GB and 64GB storage variants and includes a MicroSD card for expanding the storage up to 256GB. To add to more confusion, the Honor 7S is expected to release anytime in the near future after it was leaked with a 5.45-inch HD+ display with an entry level MediaTek processor on the inside. In terms of optics, the device comes with a 13MP + 2MP dual rear cameras with f/2.2 aperture and an 8MP selfie camera with f/2.0 aperture. Even if who Honor has lined up for the event doesn't tickle your fancy, it should be a good opportunity to see the Honor 10 in action. Underneath the hood is also a 3,000mAh non-removable battery.
