In line with its commitment towards Make in India initiative, Huawei has started manufacturing its mid-priced segment smartphone Honor 7X at a facility in Tamil Nadu. Honor is manufacturing the devices in partnership with Flex, a Sketch-to-Scale solutions provider, at Flex’s plant in Sriperumbudur near Chennai.
“Honor and Huawei will keep evaluating the demands for the product in India and will keep trying to up the ante for indigenous production and localization,” P. Sanjeev, Vice-President, Sales, Huawei Consumer Business Group, told reporters in Chennai.
Huawei – which is present in the country for 18 years now – started manufacturing devices in partnership with Flex India in September 2016 with Holly 3 – the first phone under the “Make in India” initiative.
The company later started manufacturing Honor 6X.
Honor recently introduced some of its best products in India ahead of global launches. The company has also expanded its service network with four new service centres in key metro cities. Riding on the success of Honor 7x that arrived in India in December, Honor saw a three-time growth in the fourth quarter of 2017 as compared to 2016.
The 3GB RAM and 32GB storage variant of Honor 7X is available for Rs 12,999 and 4GB RAM and 64GB storage variant is priced at Rs 15,999. The handset has a metal body and a 2.5D glass face fitted seamlessly into the aluminium chassis. It is powered by an octa-core 2.36 GHz HiSilicon Kirin 659 SoC coupled with Mali-T830 MP2 GPU for graphics. The Honor 7X packs a Li-Ion 3340mAh battery. – Financial Express
