Honor 10 Launched: Everything you need to know

As expected, the Honor 10 has been priced at a slight premium when compared to the company's previous flagship offering, the Honor View 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 Honor 10 can be referred to as a cheaper alternative to the Huawei P20 but without the Leica cameras.

Another notable aspect of the Honor 10 is its build quality and colorway.

Honor is offering additional Rs 5,000 off as regular exchange value for all Honor smartphones. Glass on both sides, near bezel-less and sporting an iridescent colour coating - it shifts between purple and blue in the Phantom Blue Edition depending on the viewing angle - the Honor 10 is definitely a looker.

They both share Huawei's HUAWEI Kirin 970 octa-core processor, and come in a 4GB RAM / 128GB onboard storage configuration (though the Honor 10 has a 6GB variant), and feature dual rear cameras and a 24-megapixel selfie snapper.

At the rear is a 16MP + 24MP AI dual-camera setup with a wide f/1.8 aperture lens and real-time AI scene recognition of 500+ scenarios in 22 categories. The device features a 5.84-inch Full HD+ 2.5D curved glass display with a resolution of 2280 x 1080 and a pixel density of 19:9. Further expansion is not possible as the Honor 10 lacks a microSD card slot. It comes with a Fingerprint sensor, and an Infrared sensor as well. The smartphone is backed by a 3400mAh non-removable battery with Honor Fast Charge technology.

In terms of dimensions, the device measures 71.2 X 149.6 X 7.7 mm and weighs about 153 grams. The phone was earlier launched in Chinese market in the month of April.

The smartphone is running on the latest Android 8.1 Oreo OS with custom iOS style EMUI 8.1 skin on the top. the EMUI is a custom Android OS based skin developed by Huawei/Honor, which offers a sleeve of features which are missing on the stock Android OS. It comes with Honor's Clear Talk function which uses AI to help reduce background noise and increase whisper volume in quiet surroundings while you are on a call.
