The Honor 10 India launch offers include an additional Rs. 5,000 off over the regular exchange value for all Honor smartphones, as well as select other devices.

Up front there's a 5.84-inch 19:9 LCD 2280×1080 display which has a notch up top. It houses a 24MP selfie camera, ambient light sensor, and earpiece for phone calls. The AI chops of that chip are put to work on a dual-camera setup combining 24- and 16-megapixel sensors, behind f/1.8 glass, which boasts AI shooting modes.

Inside, a HiSilicon Kirin 970 SoC paired with 6GB RAM and 64GB storage powers the smartphone. Neither of these rivals have really reached Huawei's level for camera quality though, although the Honor 10 doesn't have OIS, so the showdown is on.

Huawei, the Chinese smartphone maker is on a roll after recently launched the flagship Huawei P20 Pro with triple rear cameras, and Huawei P20 Lite smartphone with dual cameras in India. "They are our inspiration, and the reason we created the Honor 10, with its AI photography features and exquisite design". The Honor 10 runs EMUI 8.1 based on Android 8.1 Oreo.

Interestingly, the Honor 10 has an industry first ultrasonic fingerprint sensor located under the glass, which allows users to use the sensor even when their fingers are wet.

The cameras also have lighting scenario options for portrait shots and a hybrid 2x zoom.

The color options are Glacier Grey, Midnight Black, Phantom Blue, and Phantom Green & as mentioned above, only the Phantom Blue and Phantom Green variants have that reflective glass design. Notably, the phone has dual-SIM support in addition to the expandable memory card slot, so no more compromises there. It will come in two storage variants of 64 and 128GB. Battery size in this device is 3,400 mAh and it's coming with Honor's own Honor Super Charge for quick charging. The phone doesn't skip any of the ports as the 3.5mm headphone jack is present on the bottom (with Histen audio technology), along with the USB Type-C port and the speaker grill.
