After the successful launch of the Honor 7X and the unprecedented response by the Indian consumers, Honor is all set to launch the Honor View 10 (Honor V10 in China) in the country very soon. The Huawei sub-brand has announced that registrations for the AI-backed smartphone will begin on Amazon.in from December 28.
The device will most likely go on sale in India starting January 8, something that Honor had announced at the phone's launch event in London on December 5. Although the Indian pricing for the phone hasn't been announced yet, the phone was launched at GBP 449 (approx. Rs 38,670). If it is launched in the Rs 30,000 to Rs 38,000 price bracket in India, it will land up in the OnePlus 5T terittory.
The Honor View 10, positioned as a premium device, comes with a beautiful 18:9 aspect ratio near bezel-less display and a stellar dual camera setup. The View 10 is also Honor's most powerful smartphone till date powered by the flagship Kirin 970 chipset along with a dedicated Neural Processing Unit (NPU) which takes care of all the artificial intelligence related features such as advanced scene detection, voice recognition and natural language processing.

To recall, the Honor View 10 was launched alongside the Honor 7X at a launch event in London on December 5.
