Honor 8C is expected to become the Huawei sub-brand's next smartphone in India, with a launch today. With a landing page live on Amazon.in, where the phone will be sold exclusively, the Honor 8C is coming to India today, a few weeks after it was launched in the Chinese market. Key highlights of the Honor 8C include a 19:9 display panel with a notch, the new Snapdragon 632 SoC, face unlock capabilities, and gradient colour options. The Honor 8C India launch will be live streamed, starting at 12pm IST. The company this week also revealed that the Honor Band 4 will be launched alongside the new smartphone. Let's check out Honor 8C price and specifications.
The Honor 8C India launch will be live streamed on Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube. You can catch it right here. As we mentioned, also due to launch alongside the Honor 8C is the Honor Band 4, a fitness tracker. The company recently also unveiled the Red colour variant of the Honor 8X in India.
Honor 8C price in India will be announced in India today. The phone is already available in China at a price of CNY 1,099 (roughly Rs. 11,200) for the base 4GB RAM/ 32GB inbuilt storage model and CNY 1,399 (around Rs. 14,200) for the one with 4GB RAM and 64GB storage.
