Huawei’s Honor headed for the US

huawei honor 7

Like a lot of other Chinese brands, Huawei have their own line of budget phones in the Honor series. These phones aren’t necessarily low on specs; they’re just much cheaper than other phones with similar specs but with ‘premium’ builds.

Honor is already a known name in many countries. The recently launched Honor 7 is probably the best known phone from this sub-brand, availability of which has been spreading across the globe, from Europe to Asia.

A massive market where the brand is yet to appear is the US. However, the President George Zhao has some good news to share.

The United States market is the highest end market for Huawei, so we have been planning for a very long time. The International CES is planned for January, as you know, so you should expect to hear more about our United States plan at that time,” he was quoted saying.

Despite there being no clear timeline, folks in the US waiting for some Huawei Honor goodness can expect to have domestic availability of phones from the brand sometime next year.

CES 2016 should have more news in this regard. Would you take a domestically available Honor 7 over say, something like an imported Redmi Note 3?

    I got one about a month ago (Europe) and I’d recommend it to anyone. For 299€ there isn’t much better out there. Android 6.0 bèta is available through OTA since last weekend, however I’ve yet to download and install it. Thing is the device works flawlessly so there’s no actual need for MM :).
