Honor launching a new smartphone in India on May 22, could be the Honor 7C

Huawei sub-brand Honor is all set to launch its Honor 10 in India later today. The smartphone will be sold exclusively through Flipkart. Well, after launching the Honor 10 in India today, Honor will be launching another smartphone in India next week on May 22.


Honor has started sending out invites to the media for its launch event. The invite has a text that reads “SAVE THE DATE” along with the May 22 date below it. While the invite doesn’t explicitly reveal which smartphone Honor is going to launch on May 22, it does show the top-right portion of the front of a phone and the top-left portion of the back of the phone, which is similar to the Honor 7C.


The front of the phone in the invite shows the phone’s screen that has a wallpaper similar to the one in the official press image of the Honor 7C (see image above). Moreover, the back of the phone shown in the invite also seems to have a dual camera setup which further leads us to believe that this smartphone Honor’s launching on May 22 could very well be the Honor 7C.
