The Huawei Honor 10 is a more affordable version of the flagship P20 phone, complete with the Kirin 970 chipset and a Twilight-like paint job (which Huawei calls “Mirage”).
Originally launched in China, the flagship in disguise is moving to India next where it will be available exclusively through Flipkart. Unfortunately, neither the maker nor the retailer have shared the price yet.
The Chinese price is CNY 2,600, which works out to around INR 27,000 although the final price will likely be higher. Some sources claim as high as INR 35,000, but that would put it above the price of the Honor View 10, which currently goes for INR 30,000 on Amazon.in (for the 6 GB / 128 GB model) and is a very similar device (even better in some respects).
The Honor 10 will be available near the end of this month.
Ayyappan Rajagopal, Senior Director, Mobiles at Flipkart, had this to say about the phone:
We are excited to partner with Honor to exclusively launch their latest flagship, Honor 10 in India. We believe this phone is a game changer in the flagship segment with its high performance at an unbeatable price. It is the most beautiful phone of 2018 in the premium segment. This association ties back with Flipkart’s vision of 40% market share by 2020 by offering the best selection to our customers at every price point.
