Just like scratching an itch, Chinese smartphone manufacturer Xiaomi hit the spot when it decided to launch its value priced smartphones in India. After all, the country is the second largest market in the world for smartphones.

Honor Note 10's dimensions leak out, worthy of a 4900 mAh battery

While we already had numerous leaks about the upcoming Honor Note 10 and its giant 6.95" display, the behemoth just passed through the Chinese equivalent of the FCC, revealing the exact dimensions, and, sadly, the battery capacity. We say sadly, as the phone is listed with a "mere" 4900 mAh battery pack, which is a far cry from the 6000 mAh speculation. Still, a nearly 5000 mAh battery is nothing to sniff at. Until you look at the phone's dimensions, that is.

Honor 10 just landed with chameleon body, AI camera, and nice price

As one of the last holdouts to launch their flagship handset globally, Huawei's sub-brand honor took the stage today to announce the Honor 10 - a phone that's packed to the gills with features, which will be sold at a great value-for-money ratio, as we are accustomed to from the brand. Is it just a "fragile P20," as a user commented during the launch?

Watch the Honor 10 global launch event livestream here

Honor is one of the few major handset makers that has yet to introduce its first 2018 flagship to the global audience. We say major, as it is an offshoot of the third-largest cell phone maker globally, Huawei, and has been having moderate success with its Honor line in the US, especially the budget 7X offering lately.
