IBEF: October 21, 2019
By end of 2019, Honor is planning to launch Android-based handset in India, inspite of a ban on its parent firm Huawei for the purchase of assets of hardware and software from US firms.
Huawei is also focusing on the deployment of Internet of Thing (IoT).
In an interview, Honor India President Charles Peng said, "We are going to launch Honor 9X by the end of this year in India. It will be on Android. Any android phone can be mirrored with Honor smart screen. We have always been thankful to our US partners for their support".
After the US government announcement of a ban on suppliers of assets and software by American companies to Huwawei, Honor has came up with its own operating system HarmyOS. Which is the world's first HarmonyOS based product Honor Vision.
It has plans for launching Honor Vision smart television in India from the first quarter of FY20. To access the content on television, it can also be connected to Android-based Honor smartphones. Before its launching in India, the firm is also in talks with the leading video entertainment companies to support Honor Vision.
