Huawei’s AI-centric Honor View 10 has gone up for sale in India, even as the brand has announced its US plans for the phone. The handset is being sold only via Amazon in the former priced at Rs 29999.
In comparison, the Honor View 10 goes for EUR 499 (approx Rs 37880) in Europe. The significantly cheaper rate might boost the handset’s chances against rivals like the Mi Mix 2 and OnePlus 5T. All 3 feature 18:9 screens with narrow bezels.
The Huawei phone sets itself apart with the help of its Kirin 970 processor, last seen in the company’s flagship Mate 10 Pro. The SoC contains a dedicated neural processing unit (NPU) for AI-focused tasks such as 3D Facial Unlock, faster translations, and smart resource allocation.
