At this price segment HTC Desire 10 is going to compete with OnePlus 3 and Honor 8, both of these smartphones are doing great and OnePlus 3 is one of the best phone which you can buy in sub 30K price segement. It will be interesting to see how company is going to sell this device in this price and compete with already established devices.
