Chinese multinational networking and telecommunications equipment and services company Huawei will be launching the 6GB RAM variant of its flagship smartphone Honor 9 in India in August this year. The product was recently launched in its home country of China.
The news was confirmed by Allen Wang, who serves as the Director of Product Center in Huawei India.
