Honor Tech has been announced in India. The new brand will be licenced to sell Honor-branded smartphones in the Indian market. Established as a subsidiary of Huawei in 2013, Honor entered the Indian market in 2014 with affordable smartphones. However, due to US sanctions on Huawei, it exited India in 2020. Following a sale to Chinese companies, it continued globally but introduced sporadic fitness trackers and tablets in India.

Now, Honor is set to enter the Indian market again by launching its first smartphone in September. Here is a look at how Honor Tech will work to reestablish the brand in the Indian market.

The initial investment will focus on product enhancement, software refinement, and service expansion, targeting a projected revenue of Rs 10,000 crore by 2024.

Collaborating with Noida-based PSAV Global, Honor Tech, headquartered in Gurgaon, plans to build a comprehensive local supply chain and generate around 4,000 jobs by next year. This partnership will grant Honor Tech the authority to choose its products, collaborators, manufacturing processes, services, and distribution networks for the local market.
