In India, the smartphone has been launched as a Flipkart exclusive and is set to take on OnePlus' next flagship device, the OnePlus 6. Honor India will be hosting an event on May 22nd, where a new smartphone will be announced. The Honor 10 was launched in China last month and now, the device has made its way to other countries. It is already available for pre-order on the eCommerce giant's website.

"Honor 10 brings an exciting new proposition to India and we believe it will be a game changer in the flagship segment". The phone will be available for purchase through homegrown online marketplace Flipkart. Whereas the global price of the Huawei P20 (not available in India) is 679 Euros (Rs 54,525). As part of the promotional sale campaign, the e-commerce site is offering lucrative exchange deals with up to Rs 18,000 cash discount.

AI-accelerated Microsoft Translator software delivers instantaneous translation without you needing to be online. Axis Bank Buzz credit card holders can get an extra 5% off on the smartphone, although the maximum discount is capped at Rs.200.

The Honor 10's notched display is just a touch larger than the P20 at 5.84 inches; both of them are LCD as opposed to the P20 Pro's OLED screen. The main attraction of Honor 10 is the integration of a HiSilicon Kirin 970 processor coupled with 6GB RAM. It comes with 6GB RAM and 128GB of internal storage. The device supports storage expansion up to 256GB via microSD. 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. The Honor 10 has an added advantage over the Huawei P20 on the following points. The front hosts an impressive 24MP selfie sensor with AI features and also supports 3D portrait lighting. Both the cameras also come with AI capabilities. The front-facing camera also enables the Face Unlock feature.

Connectivity features include Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac dual-band, Bluetooth 4.2 Low Energy, GPS with A-GPS, GLONASS, NFC, USB Type-C, and 4G VoLTE. The smartphone is backed by a 3400mAh non-removable battery with Honor Fast Charge technology. The Honor 10 has a 3.5 mm headphone jack, whereas the Huawei P20 doesn't.
