Honor is adding another name to its wide range of smartphone – Honor 10i. The Honor 10i has been introduced quietly in Russia by Honor’s parent company Huawei. The Chinese smartphone brand has assured that the smartphone will ‘soon’ be available in the markets of Russia. The Honor 10i is a mid-range smartphone that offers certain features like a triple-rear camera, an octa-core Kirin 710 SoC and a fingerprint scanner. The Honor 10i is another addition to the Honor 10 line-up of smartphones which already has Honor 10 and Honor 10 Lite. Although, the Honor 10i is somewhat similar to the Honor 10 Lite in many ways and most of their specifications are similar but they also differ at many fronts. The major difference between the Honor 10i and the Honor 10 Lite is the cameras.
However, the company hasn’t announced the official pricing of the device or whether it will be launched in markets other than Russia.
Honor 10i price
As stated above, the pricing of the Honor 10i is currently unknown as the company hasn’t announced it yet. While the company’s official listing states that the phone is ‘coming soon’, so it is not currently available for purchase. But since the Honor 10i has been officially announced by the company, the pricing and other details of the smartphone will be announced by Honor soon.
We should add here, that Honor 10 Lite smartphone is priced at Rs 11,999 in India. So, we expect the Honor 10i’s cost to be somewhere close to that only, considering their specifications are similar too.
