Although Huawei has been trying to establish itself in the Indian market so long, things didn't work out as per the plan. But things drastically changed earlier this year when the company launched the Honor 6 in India. It was a major hit among Indian consumers, given the smartphone's tempting retail price at under Rs 20,000 and the hardware on offer.
