Honor teases new product launch in India with a promise of innovation



Chinese technology firm Honor is returning in the Indian market, promising a “new era of innovation.” The company has officially confirmed it through a post on X (formerly known as Twitter), hinting at an imminent update.


“‘Hello’ to a new era of innovation. Stay tuned for more updates,” Honor Tech writes in the tweet. The post was then retweeted by former Realme India CEO Madhav Sheth, captioned “What’s cooking at @HonorTechIndia? Stay connected with us.”

Speculation has been rife that Honor is preparing to make a comeback to the Indian smartphone arena with an all-new device.

According to a previous report from The Economic Times, Honor, which previously operated as a subsidiary of Huawei, is anticipated to reintroduce its phones to the Indian market in August. An IANS report previously suggested that several employees from Realme have joined Honor Tech. Speculations in the past have suggested that Realme’s former CEO, Madhav Sheth, might lead Honor’s operations in India. With Madhav’s latest post, the rumour seems to be now put to rest.
