View10 is competitively priced; will become sub-30K best-seller: Huawei VP
Huawei India-Consumer Business Group's Vice-President Sales, P Sanjeev, said View 10 marks the beginning of an AI era where consumers move from "smart" phones to "intelligent" phones.
He said View 10 follows Honor's "commitment towards the Indian market"; that's why it's "priced lower than the global variant (€499; over Rs. 38,000)."
Sanjeev added it would be the most affordable AI phone for Indian users.
