This is an interesting week considering its the end of the financial year but looks like the Smartphone brands are not taking a break and launching many devices. We have already covered about the Xiaomi Mi5, Samsung Galaxy J3 2016, Gionee W909 and a few other devices; now Honor might add a device to the list.
From the invite sent to us and the Twitter contests, we expect Honor to rope in Indian Badminton star, Saina Nehwal as the company’s brand ambassador. Recently, Huawei, the parent company of Honor as appointed Lionel Messi has their global brand ambassador. Earlier to this, Messi has served as the brand ambassador Samsung.
We are not sure, about the device launch but considering that Honor India has invited for an event in New Delhi, they could be launching their Honor 7i Smartphone. Again this is not a confirmation but yes the brand ambassador is confirmed for the brand that has increased their market share in the country with a series of budget devices.
The device was launched last year in China as the successor for Honor 7. It comes with a 13MP flappable camera where the rear camera can also be used as a front camera for capturing selfies. In China, the device was launched in two variants with 2GB RAM and 3GB RAM. The fingerprint sensor embedded into the power button placed on the side edge
Also there are chances that Henry Cavill, who has casted as Spiderman in the recent Hollywood movie was spotted at Huawei HQ, hinting that he could also be joining for similar activities with the brand. Clearly all these point that Huawei & honor as brands are making big with success on the current lineup and portfolio.
Note: If you have spotted Saina Nehwal earlier at a Smartphone launch, then you are not alone, we also did find her at the Samsung Galaxy Grand launch in India.
