uawei has introduced the Honor 7X and 9 Lite, affordable smartphones with great features.

“Honor is the world’s leading smartphone e-brand – the brand started online and targets digital natives,” said Chris Sun, Vice President of Honor MEA, speaking at the launch of the devices in South Africa.

The online brand is a sub-brand under the Huawei Group and is available online only – allowing the brand to remain affordable, while offering a decent set of specifications. Honor has chosen Takealot as its ecommerce partner in South Africa.

“The introduction of Honor to South Africa forms part of Honor’s global expansion strategy,” added Sun. “Honor plans to become one of the top five smartphone brands in the world within the next three years, and one of the top three within five years.”
