Honor India To Launch New Mid-Range Smartphone On May 22

One can click on the "Notify Me" tab to be notified when the sale begins. The company will be unveiling the device today at an event in London at 2pm BST which is approximately 6.30pm IST. The Honor 10 isn't supposed to be as good as a phone which carries the haloed Leica insignia, but it's supposed to use a lot of the same derivative technologies to give it a category-redefining edge. The Honor 10 will be available in India at a price of Rs 32,999 in partnership with Flipkart.

To recall, the Honor 10 has already seen the light of day in China, where it was launched on 19 April, so we know what exactly to expect from the phone in terms of specifications.

The Kirin 970 is the only second mobile SoC in the world besides the A11 Bionic on the iPhone X which comes with something called the NPU - a neural processing unit - that has a singular objective to speeding up machine learning on the device and not guzzle huge amounts of power.

Coming to the features of the phone, the Honor 10 has borrowed heavily from the recently-launched Huawei P20 phones. Also included in the smartphone is a display notch. It borrows its design cues from Huawei P20 with an aluminum frame and glass back. The Qualcomm's ultrasonic solution helps Original Equipment Manufacturer's to implement an under-display fingerprint sensor and is said to be able to work "perfectly" even when wet or greasy. It remains to be seen how long the Honor 10 will actually last from a single charge, but the battery size and numerous specs are the same as the Huawei P20, a phone which comfortably lasts a day of moderate use.

The phone will be available in three variants. Unfortunately, the phone's memory will not be expandable. This smartphone is made out of metal and glass, it sports a display notch, and a dual camera setup on the back. The sensors have an aperture rate of f/1.8 and features such as face detection, autofocus, and LED flash, among others. The front-camera only records 1080P videos at 30fps. The rear cameras and the front camera will both be AI-enabled.

In terms of connectivity, the phone has a dual-SIM 4G VoLTE slots along with USB Type-C port, a 3.5 mm headphone jack, Bluetooth 5.0, Wi-Fi and Global Positioning System capabilities. It also has a host of sensors on board which includes a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor, an accelerometer, a proximity sensor and a compass and it is backed by a 3,000mAh Li-ion battery.
