The number three smartphone manufacturer failed to confirm exactly how many units it managed to sell within the first 24 hours of sales, although it did note that over 80,000 customers chose to take advantage of a €30 discount coupon, suggesting official numbers may surpass the 100,000 mark. In any case, regarding which countries proved to be the most interested in the smartphone, the Honor 10 was completely gone in just six hours over in Spain, while the Phantom Blue variant of the smartphone took under a day to sell out in France. Nevertheless, the popularity of the device isn’t necessarily surprising. After all, the Honor 10 costs just €399, or $470, and offers a very impressive spec sheet that is pretty similar to that of the Huawei P20.
Specifically, the same octa-core Kirin 970 processor is present on the inside alongside 4GB of RAM. Unlike the P20, though, the Honor 10 is also offered in a 6GB of RAM variant. Furthermore, options of 64GB and 128GB of storage are available to consumers. Over in the camera department, however, there are some significant differences. These include a main 16-megapixel sensor coupled with a secondary 24-megapixel monochrome lens. Over in the selfie department, though, the Huawei P20’s 24-megapixel camera makes a return.
Huawei hasn't officially confirmed any official sales goals for Honor-branded devices, but one of the main objectives certainly appears to be to slow down the growth of other low-cost manufacturers such as Xiaomi. And, if the launch day results are anything to go by, Huawei’s strategy certainly appears to be paying off.
