Honor 90 launch in India will take place in September as the Chinese smartphone manufacturer makes a return to the country, according to a report. The handset was launched in China earlier this year alongside the flagship-grade Honor 90 Pro. It is equipped with a 200-megapixel rear camera, runs on a Snapdragon 7 Gen 1 chipset, and packs a 5,000mAh battery with support for 66W charging, but the phone could launch with slightly different specifications when it arrives in India.
A recent IANS report (via Siasat Daily) claims that the Honor 90 will be launched in the premium segment in the middle of September. The report does not cite a source for the information or mention a specific launch date for the handset, but the report comes days after a similar timeline for the phone to debut in India was tipped by a YouTube creator. Launched in China in May, pricing for the phone starts at CNY 2,499 (roughly Rs. 28,700) for the base 12GB + 256GB RAM and storage configuration.
