Huawei, the Chinese tech giant that makes great looking phones that cost half as much as the iPhone, is looking to ramp up its position in the India.
According to local media reports, the company will adopt a new strategy for selling its Honor range of smartphones in India. Reportedly Huawei will soon start selling the Honor handsets in retail outlets as well.
The report went on to say that Huawei has approached a leading south India based mobile phones retail store, which has few outlets in north India, for selling its Honor smartphones.
The company launched the Honor Holly and Honor X1 Tablet in the country exclusively via Flipkart last year. Since then Huawei has been proactively working hard to establish its Honor brand in India - the world's third largest smartphone market. Huawei recently unveiled the Honor 4C and Honor Bee in India, again in an exclusive association with Flipkart.
Not just Huawei, Xiaomi too has started to sell its devices through a leading electronics retail chain in India, part of its effort to move away from online-only sales. Earlier this year, Xiaomi ecided to sell its Redmi Note 4G handset through shops of carrier Bharti Airtel but that would still need an online registration.
