Honor has announced today (May 24) its recently launched flagship the Honor 10 has sold over one million units globally.
The Honor 10 was launched in China last month (April 19) and then Europe last week (May 15).
The manufacturer claimed the Honor 10 sold twice as much compared to the Honor 9 in its first week of launch, on its online store.
A week after launch the manufacturer announced it had sold out the device a week after its European launch. The blue version of the device sold out in six hours in Spain upon release.
Around 89,000 Honor social media subscribers took a €30 discount from a social media deal that brought the price down to €369.90.
