Last year in January, Huawei sub-brand Honor launched the Honor 9 Lite in India. And now, the company is all set to launch its successor – the Honor 10 Lite – in the country.


Honor has announced that it will soon launch the Honor 10 Lite in India. Honor shared this news through Twitter by tweeting “Get ready to up your selfie game. #HONOR10Lite Coming soon to India!” While Honor has said that the Honor 10 Lite is “coming soon” to India, the company hasn’t revealed exactly when it will launch this smartphone in the country. But, now that Honor has started teasing the launch of Honor 10 Lite in India, we can expect the company to announce its India launch date soon.
