Prepend to the content

  • Honor 90 5G will be launching this month in India
  • However, it is already listed for purchase on the OLX marketplace
  • It is listed with an abnormally high price tag

Honor 90 5G India launch date has not yet been confirmed. However, according to tipster Paras Guglani, the device is already being sold on OLX India. We conducted a search on the marketplace and found a few listings for the Honor 90 5G, with prices ranging up to Rs 59,990.

Since the brand has not confirmed the launch date, the anticipation surrounding the Honor 90 5G is growing, which may drive some individuals to buy it from marketplace listings before others get their hands on it following the official announcement. However, we strongly recommend against buying the device from such listings since Honor has not yet officially launched it.

Purchasing a global version of a smartphone, especially before its official Indian launch, can result in several issues. First, while the global version may claim to support Indian networks, it may not be optimised for peak performance on these networks, resulting in slower data speeds and dropped calls. Additionally, some apps and services that are designed for India may not function properly on a global version.

Furthermore, there is the issue of future software compatibility. After launching the Honor 90 5G, Honor India may release exclusive software updates and features that are specifically designed to enhance the performance of the Indian variant. Without these critical updates, the device may be less protected from newer security attacks. Global editions often lack local warranty coverage, making it difficult to get support if the device runs into problems. Additionally, when you decide to sell or upgrade, the resale value of a global version may be lower than the official Indian version due to the lack of local support, potentially resulting in a less favourable return on investment.

The global version of the Honor 90 5G listed on OLX has a hefty price tag of ₹59,990. However, rumours suggest that the Indian variant will be significantly cheaper. The upcoming Indian version is likely to pack the same specs that are available on its global edition. However, since there are several potential issues that can arise from purchasing a global version of the Honor 90 5G, it is advisable to wait for the official Indian launch to ensure a more seamless and optimised smartphone experience.
