Huawei’s sub-brand, Honor, has issued a press release to announce that the Honor 10 flagship smartphone has already managed one million sales. This is an impressive feat, considering the device was only released in China on April 27 and received a limited global launch on May 16. The Honor 10 has been praised for offering high-end features for a mid-range price.

A press release from Honor has revealed sales of over one million units for the Honor 10 flagship device. This milestone has been achieved in just less than a month, as the smartphone was launched in China on April 27. A recent event in London heralded the handset’s “global” release, although the markets actually specified only included the UK, France, Germany, Italy, and Spain. The latest press release from Huawei’s sub-brand states upcoming availability in Central and Eastern Europe, the Nordic countries, and the Middle East. The Honor 10 will also be available in Malaysia, Thailand, Vietnam, and the Philippines, and it has already been launched in some South East Asian countries. But there is still no mention of a US release yet.

The device features specifications that would encourage healthy sales, especially when the price of £399.99 (~US$534) is taken into account. The Honor 10 comes with a Kirin 970 SoC, 4 GB RAM, 64 or 128 GB storage, and a rear dual-camera system featuring a 24 MP sensor and 16 MP sensor. For selfie fans, there is a 24 MP front-facing camera. Both rear and front cameras feature AI-powered system support for additional photography features. The 5.84-inch smartphone has an FHD+ screen and features narrow bezels and a notch.

If that wasn’t enough, the Honor 10 also comes with an under-glass fingerprint sensor, facial feature unlocking, Honor SuperCharge technology, and it also looks very presentable in either Phantom Blue or Phantom Green. The Honor 9 received a grade of very good (88%) when it was reviewed by Notebookcheck, so the Honor 10 has a lot to live up to.
