The new Honor 10 brings powerful hardware, an AI chip for automated camera functions, and a beautifully crafted body to the mid-range segment, and that's great - but if you've been keeping an eye on recent phone launches, you'll notice that it's nearly identical to the Huawei P20 - and that's a good thing. The launch for the Indian market was announced at an event held in London, where the phone was also launched globally. In India, the smartphone has been launched as a Flipkart exclusive and is set to take on OnePlus' next flagship device, the OnePlus 6. The Honor 10 will be released in India on May 23, so if you place a pre-order now, you can expect it to ship sometime early next week. Whereas the global price of the Huawei P20 (not available in India) is 679 Euros (Rs 54,525). Axis bank Credit and Debit card users can get 10% instant discount, taking the effective price of the device down to Rs. 29,999. The Phantom Blue variant has a two-tone color gradient finish which reflects different colous depending upon the angle you look at it from. 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. There's a notch on top of the display, which the company says it has been planning since past four years. Luckily, company has provided an option to hide the notch if they wish to, by making the status bar black.

The Honor 10 runs on Android 8.1 Oreo with EMUI 8.1 skinned on top. The fast-charging 3,400mAh battery is also identical. The main attraction of Honor 10 is the integration of a HiSilicon Kirin 970 processor coupled with 6GB RAM.

The device features Qualcomm's ultrasonic fingerprint scanner for biometric authentication which is more accurate than the regular fingerprint scanners and it can read the fingerprint correctly even when the finger is wet or greasy. Both the cameras also come with AI capabilities. Up front, it sports a 24MP front-facing camera with f/2.0 aperture.

In terms of dimensions, the device measures 71.2 X 149.6 X 7.7 mm and weighs about 153 grams.

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.
