Honor is not only planning to launch and manufacture new handsets for the Indian market, but also looking to bring Honor TV to the country soon. This is despite the US ban continuing on its parent firm Huawei. The company aims to garner 10 percent market share in Indian smartphone business by 2020. “We will not only continue to manufacture new smartphones but also continue to provide the excellent after-sales support to our consumers,” Honor India President Charles Peng told PTI in an interview.

In May, the US government added Huawei to an “entity list” of companies. This list bars companies from receiving US-made hardware and software components without permission from Washington. President Donald Trump later said that US companies could sell equipment to Huawei. But there is no known regulatory development after his statement to end the ban.

Peng says that Honor is fully ready for all situations. He reiterates that the company will continue providing user experience and products to customers on a priority basis. “We will launch newer products and establish an ecosystem of technologically advanced and high-quality devices in India. We will launch the next X series phone in India soon. The phone is a successor to Honor 8X launched in India last year, which was a huge rage with the youth in India and has received overwhelming response,” Peng said.

Honor 8X is considered to be the most successful phone from the company till date. The firm claims to have sold about 15 million units of the phone globally in nine months. “We recently announced the launch of a brand-new large-screen category, Smart Vision Smart TV. This indicates that the large-screen industry will enter the smart screen era from the traditional TV era. The first product of the new category will be officially released in early August and we might bring it to the Indian market soon,” Peng said.

He said that irrespective of the US stand on Huawei, Honor will continue to offer services available on Android in all the products. These include products sold globally. Peng further said Honor smartphones will not be affected with restricted supplies from US. He reiterated that existing as well as future users of Honor smartphones do not have to worry.

“Indian market is a top priority for us, it is our second-largest market after China. Our mission for India is to achieve 10 per cent market share by 2020. This year our goal and focus in India is to be the number one smartphone player in quality and after sales service,” he said.
