Huawei’s sub-brand Honor was mostly inactive in the Indian market last year. The Chinese brand only launched a couple of devices, and most of them were launched in early 2018. This year, the company plans to have an early start in the country. The brand has announced that its first product for India this year is going to be launched at an event on January 14th. While the phone maker hasn’t revealed the name of the device (s) to be unveiled at the event, all the teasers from the brand point towards the launch of the Honor 9X. Honor hasn’t revealed anything about the pricing and availability of the Honor 9X at the moment.
