Huawei recently launched its entry-level smartphone Honor 7S in the Indian market. Honor 7S got sold out in a mere 7 minutes when it went to sale for the first time. This brought this phone into limelight despite its pretty basic features. Huawei, which is already doing well globally, has finally started to focus on the Indian market with its wide range of smartphones. Huawei had also unveiled its budget smartphone Honor 9N around one and a half months back, which was a good looking phone with decent specifications. Honor 7S will face direct competition from phones like Redmi 6A and Redmi 6.
