As far as we know Huawei's sub-brand Honor is planning to launch the Honor 8 Pro in India on July 6. We also know that the smartphone is going to be an Amazon India exclusive. However, the one thing we are curious about is the pricing of the smartphone.
While Honor 8 Pro has already been launched in Europe at EUR 549 (approximately Rs. 39,500) and we already have some idea about the smartphone, the Indian pricing will differ significantly. And just as we say this, the Indian price of the smartphone seems to have been leaked.
As per the leaked information, the Honor 8 Pro is expected to be priced at Rs. 29,999. Considering this price to be true, it is very less compared to the Euro pricing, almost Rs. 9,000 less.
The news comes from Hindustan Times and the publication has somewhat tipped the price of Honor 8 Pro (6GB RAM and 128GB storage variant) that will be launching in India later this week. Besides, if this smartphone is launched at the said price then it will give a tough competition to some of the flagship smartphones like Oneplus 5 or even the Samsung Galaxy S8 that are available in the market right now. Further, we are also expecting some launch offers to be announced on the day as well.

Further, the camera setup will come along with f/2.2 aperture, laser auto-focus, LED flash, and 4K video recording support.
