- A microsite has been created by Flipkart
- Honor 9X features pop-up selfie camera and a dual rear camera setup
onor 9X India launch is set for January 14, Huawei sub-brand Honor revealed in invites to the tech media on Saturday. Flipkart has also created a microsite to indicate that it will be carrying the phone in the country. The fresh developments come days after Honor India President Charles Peng revealed that the Honor 9X will launch in the country later this month. The Chinese brand also teased the debut through its social media earlier this week. To recall, the Honor 9X was unveiled in China alongside the Honor 9X Pro in July last year. Both Honor phones come with a pop-up selfie camera.
The invite sent by Honor shows a letter “X” in the background and includes the January 14 as the launch date. It, however, doesn’t reveal whether the brand would bring only the Honor 9X or also the Honor 9X Pro.
Nevertheless, Honor India President Charles Peng in a recent interview with Gadgets 360 did confirm that the Honor 9X would debut in India later this month.
“For the Honor 9X which will be launched next month, it is based on Android and GMS (Google Mobile Services), and also Google Play,” Peng said while detailing the launch plans.
In addition to the Save the Date invite sent by Honor, Flipkart has published the microsite to suggest the online availability of the Honor 9X. It is likely that alongside Flipkart, the smartphone will be available for purchase through other channels in the country.
