Huawei's sub-brand Honor has recently launched the Honor 10 in India. It incorporates AI features and has a glass and metal body, dual rear cameras, a 19:9 display, and a processor with dedicated AI hardware. The Honor 10 sounds promising on paper with Rs. 32,999 price tag, it also slightly undercuts the much-hyped OnePlus 6. The smartphone is available in two colours in India, Midnight Back and Phantom Blue. The Blue variant looks quite snazzy and has a reflective glass back, which adds a lot of design flair. We reviewed the black variant which is much more understated. Watch the Honor 10 review video to find out what we think about the new smartphone.
