Chinese electronics giant Huawei on Wednesday announced that it has started manufacturing its mid-priced segment device Honor 7X at a facility in Tamil Nadu, in line with its commitment towards the ‘Make in India’ initiative.
Honor is manufacturing the devices in partnership with Flex, a Sketch-to-Scale solutions provider, at Flex’s plant in Sriperumbudur near Chennai.
“Honor and Huawei will keep evaluating the demands for the product in India and will keep trying to up the ante for indigenous production and localisation,” P. Sanjeev, Vice-President, Sales, Huawei Consumer Business Group, told reporters.
Huawei – which has been present in the country for 18 years now – started manufacturing devices in partnership with Flex India in September 2016 with Holly 3 – its first phone under the “Make in India” initiative.
The company later started manufacturing Honor 6X.
Honor recently introduced some of its best products in India ahead of global launches. The company has also expanded its service network with four new service centres in key metro cities.
Riding on the success of Honor 7X that arrived in India in December, Honor saw a three-time growth in the fourth quarter of 2017 as compared to 2016.
The 32GB storage + 3GB RAM variant of Honor 7X is available at Rs. 12,999 and 64GB storage + 4GB RAM variant is priced at Rs. 15,999.
