Huawei’s subbrand Honor has been quite active of late in launching devices in India. Though its parent company has not been as active in the Indian markets, Honor has been at the helm of some truly ingenious smartphone devices.
The company has been launching products for all kind of price categories. While most of them have faced tough competition from the likes of Vivo, Oppo and Xiaomi, the Honor brand has made a permanent mark on the Indian smartphone market. Honor is also copying the features of quite a lot of its competitors and we can see that clearly in the designs of the Honor 7X, and the Honor 9.
However, now rumours are piling up about the upcoming Honor 10 smartphone and when it is intended to launch in India. Obviously the launch will first happen in China first, as is tradition, before making its way towards India.
The smartphone, as per the leaks, will come with the iPhone X-like notch. Quite recently this feature was also seen on the Huawei P20 and P20 Pro smartphones. However, the notch was not as big as it was on the iPhone X. Huawei also offered a software option of removing the notch, so as to enjoy an uninterrupted, unhindered video experience.
According to the images, the Honor 10 will also feature a fingerprint sensor on the physical home button that can be seen on the front of the device. This does not mean that the phone will not have a faceID system as the Honor 7 to Honor 9 smartphones do.
The phone also has an interesting setup on the back where we can see an LED flash placed near the horizontally aligned dual-camera on the rear side of the device.
In terms of the hardware, it has been suggested that the device could come sporting a HiSilicon Kirin 970 chipset which is made in-house by Huawei. Along with this, the phone has 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of internal storage. There could be other variants of the device as well. The phone will most probably also have Android Oreo 8.1 running on the device, along with Huawei’s custom EMUI 9.0 skin overlying the phone.
But to be quite fair this might not be as true as we think it is. There are no sources that have been attributed to this story and it seems that no one can confirm if this is the orginal device. Although it would seem that the 2018 design trend is to put notches on the device, the website themselves have suggested that the images of the smartphone could very well be of another device as well so do take this information with a pinch of salt.
If the phone is exciting you already, it may be time to begin planning your upgrade. Start by looking up your phone’s selling price on Cashify, and help it make your upgrade easier when the Honor 10 is out!
