Honor 10 pricing and availability details leak

Tomorrow in China the Honor 10 is set to finally become official, following a few days of intensive leaks. This will be the Huawei sub-brand’s new top of the line device, complementing the bigger Honor View 10 in its roster.

One thing that hasn’t been outed so far is how much the Honor 10 is going to cost, yet thankfully today a new rumor from China covers that aspect, alongside the phone’s release date.

The Honor 10 is expected to go on sale in the mainland on April 27 at 10:08 AM local time. You’ll have three versions to choose from. The entry-level model sports 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage for CNY 2,699 ($430 or 347 at the current exchange rates).

The middle option gives you 2 additional gigs of RAM for CNY 2,999 ($477 or 385), while the top spec model comes with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage, priced at CNY 3,599 ($573 or 462). Thus the Honor 10 will be more expensive than its predecessor from last year, the Honor 9.

The Honor 10’s unveiling for international markets will take place in London on May 15. While the Chinese prices won’t readily translate into dollars, euros, and pounds, you should probably expect a price hike in all markets compared to the Honor 9.

The Honor 10 boasts a 5.84-inch LCD screen with a notch, glass on both the front and back, a metal frame, a fingerprint scanner on the front, and a dual rear camera setup (with 16 MP + 24 MP resolution). It’s going to be powered by the Kirin 970 chipset with AI built-in, and a 3,320 mAh battery will keep the lights on.
