Huawei has already launched the Y9 in India and is preparing to get the View 20 soon as well. On the other hand, its sub-brand, Honor, too is gearing up for the upcoming year. The phone was launched in China a couple of months back and it has proven itself in terms of sales globally.
The budget smartphone segment has been getting extremely cramped due to a wide range of offerings from various makers. Hence, brands are trying their best to offer more features, at the lowest possible price. For Honor, the gradient design has been loved by many and has become one major differentiating factor for consumers.
