China telco Huawei aims to Honor India with 2 mn handsets this year

Chinese handset maker Huawei today said it aims to sell two million units of its 'Honor' range of handsets in India this year as it aims to target the "digital natives" in the country with the online-only brand.

The company on Tuesday unveiled two new devices under the Honor range -- 4X (priced at Rs 10,499) and 6 Plus (Rs 26,499), which will be retailed through eCommerce major Flipkart. It now has four devices under the Honor range.

"The dual brand strategy has been working well for us globally and in India. Last year, we sold 3,00,000 units of Honor devices and this year, we are looking at 7X growth in that number, at about 2 million. We are focused on bringing in devices that will appeal to Indian users," Honor President George Zhao said.

He added that the company will bring one or two more devices under the range to India.

"We will bring in affordable and premium devices with the best possible technology for the digital natives," he said.

Increasingly, a number of companies are focusing on the tech-savvy youngsters, using e-Commerce as the distribution channel.
