Huawei has been on a launch spree lately. Following the launch of the P20 series, and its subsequent arrival in India, the company’s Honor sub-brand unveiled its own flagship smartphone, the Honor 10 in China last week. The latter borrows design elements from the P20 smartphones, complete with the flashy dual-tone finish, and a notch on the front, along with the high-end hardware.
The Honor 10 has so far remained exclusive to China, however, new reports state that Honor will bring the device to international markets too, and will announce the same at an event next month.
According to an IANS report, the Honor 10 will be launched globally on May 15 in London, and that the device’s pricing and specs will be competitive enough to rival the OnePlus 6.
The Honor 10 is expected to hit the Indian market in May following its global launch. The device might be priced under the Rs. 40,000 mark to take on the upcoming OnePlus 6, which will go on sale starting May 21 exclusively on Amazon.
To take on the OnePlus 6, Honor has reportedly selected Flipkart, Amazon’s arch-rival in India, to sell the Honor 10 in the country. “Honor is also working on new dual-camera and consumer-centric innovation”, adds Digit’s report.
As far as specs go, the Honor 10 can take on any flagship smartphone, and boasts the same impressive design and beefy hardware that powers the flagship P20 Pro i.e. the top-of-the-line Kirin 970 SoC, with a dedicated neural processing chip, 6GB of RAM and 64 or 128 GB of internal storage.
The device’s dual rear camera setup consists of a 24MP and a 16MP sensor combination which is claimed to provide DSLR-like bokeh effects, paired with a 24MP sensor on the front side, just like the P20 Lite.
With these specs, the Honor 10 is surely shaping up to be a worthy competitor to the OnePlus 6, unless of course, OnePlus pulls out something truly outrageous in terms of pricing.
