Honor 7S reportedly launching in India next week

Huawei sub-brand Honor launched the Honor Play in India earlier this month with a starting price of ₹19,999. And now, if the latest report is to be believed, then the company is all set to launch one more smartphone in India in September – the Honor 7S.


According to a report by IANS, the Honor 7S will be launched in India in September. In fact, it’s said to launch in India next week. The Honor 7S was launched in Pakistan back in late May this year. However, the 7S isn’t any new smartphone. It’s actually a re-branded Honor Play 7 that was launched in China.


The Honor 7S is powered by MediaTek’s MT6739 quad-core processor which is paired with 2 GB RAM. The smartphone runs EMUI 8.1 out-of-the-box which is based on Android 8.1 Oreo. For photography, the Honor 7S features a 13 MP camera at the back, and, on the front, you get a 5 MP camera.
