Huawei sub brand Honor launched its latest smartphone, the Honor Play, in India earlier this month. It is one of the many new Honor smartphones launched in recent times. But the selling point of the Honor Play has to be the fact that despite costing Rs 19,999, it sports the Huawei’s flagship Kirin 970 chipset.
Honor has partnered up with Amazon India to sell this smartphone, and it is all set to go on a flash sale today at 12:00PM. Flash sales are not merely a naming gimmick and literally means that the product goes out of stock within seconds, hence we suggest potential customers to be ready before time.
Honor has also partnered with Vodafone to offer 10GB of additional data for 12 months for both prepaid and postpaid customers. Customers will receive 10GB data at the beginning of every monthly cycle for 12 cycles. Vodafone subscribers must have an unlimited pack to be eligible for this offer.
