Huawei's sub-brand Honor is likely to launch its budget smartphone Honour 7C in India on May 22. However, it is widely speculated that the phone will be priced at around Rs 35,000. While the invite doesn't reveal much about the device that the company is planning to launch, it does highlight the number 7, which could indicate that Honor is planning to launch Honour 7C in India. The Honor 10 was launched in China few weeks back and AI features has been one of the highlight of the smartphone. After having launched the Honor View 10 earlier (read our full review of the smartphone here), Honor also announced an upgraded version of the phone, the Honor 10 which will be launched globally on May 15 and will go on sale in India from May 16 at midnight exclusively via Flipkart.

Honor 10 can be seen as the mid-range variant of Huawei's more premium P20 smartphone.

Keeping the tradition of AI (artificial intelligence) and iPhone X-like notch alive, the smartphone is expected to come with a notch on top of the display.

The Honor 10 has a 5.84 inch IPS LCD display with a 2280 x 1080 px resolution.


As far as the specifications are concerned, Honor 7C is powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 405 processor instead of the company's HiSilicon Kirin chipset which powers its Honor 7X smartphone. The Honor 10 will run on Huawei's EMUI 8.1, based on the latest Android 8.1 Oreo operating system.

The phone will be available in three variants. Unfortunately, the phone's memory will not be expandable. Design-wise, the camera is located on the top left corner and is aligned horizontally with an LED flash on the inner edge.

On the camera front, The Honor 7C will come with a dual-lens rear camera with a 13MP primary sensor along with 2MP secondary sensor for the depth effect. The cameras are capable of recording 4K videos at 30 frames per second. It is backed by a 3,000mAh non-removable battery and supports up to 10W power input.

The camera set-up isn't quite as extravagant as the P20 Pro, but it still packs a decent 24MP and 16MP dual-camera with f/1.8 aperture on the rear which then uses the NPU to adjust shots automatically.
