For a while, Honor was not present in the Indian market due to restrictions imposed on Huawei by the US. Nevertheless, Huawei eventually split from Honor’s business department, enabling the brand to become independent. As a result, Honor has started introducing their smartphones to international markets. And now, the brand made a comeback to one of the world’s biggest smartphone markets, India, by officially launching the Honor 90 5G device.
