Earlier this month, Huawei Honor 10 was unveiled for the Global and Indian markets as the Huawei Honor view 10. As per the announcements on launch day, the device is meant to go on sale in India on January 8, 2018, but just ahead of the January 8th release date, Amazon and Honor India has announced that the device will be priced at ₹34,999 and will be exclusive to Amazon India for online sales.
We are however not certain if there would be any forms of special offers for those purchasing the Honor View10, but we will update you on that when the device finally goes on sale. Amazon India was the only online partner for the Honor 7X which is available in the country at ₹15,999for the 4GB RAM + 64GB storage variant. At this price level, the Honor view 10 will be competing with the Oneplus 5T which is slightly priced above it, but the View 10 should have an edge over the 5T as it runs Android Oreo out of the box.
