Honor 9 Lite with 5.65-inch FullView Display and Quad Cameras launching in India on January 17

Earlier this week, Huawei sub-brand Honor announced that it is soon going to launch a smartphone with quad cameras in India. Then today, we got a confirmation that this quad camera smartphone is nothing but the Honor 9 Lite. And now, we have confirmation that the Honor 9 Lite will be launched in India next week.


According to a post on Honor Community, the Honor 9 Lite is going to be launched in India on January 17. The company has also kicked off its “Launch Event Fan Recruitment” as a part of which select Honor Fans from India will be flown down to the Honor 9 Lite launch event. You can head over to the Source link at the end of this article to know more about this “recruitment”.

Well, having said that, the Honor 9 Lite will be sold exclusively through Flipkart in India and will be available in two configurations – 3 GB RAM + 32 GB internal storage and 4 GB RAM + 64 GB internal storage. Needless to say, there’s no information on its pricing in India yet, however, it starts at ¥1199 (around ₹11,740) in China, hence, we should expect it to be priced around the same mark in India as well.
