The Indian festive season is almost here, and if you were planning on getting yourself a new smartphone, you’re in for a treat! Smartphone brands, retailers, and partner banks are coming up with exciting ways to let you buy your dream smartphone without burning a hole in your pocket. Do you like a phone that doesn’t fall into your limited budget? Well, you can finally buy it, thanks to all the discounts and offers that will be available this festive shopping season. HONOR is among those brands that have planned to offer consumers a way to buy excellent smartphones at much lower prices.
Great discounts will be available during Amazon’s Great Indian Shopping Festival and Flipkart’s The Big Billion Days sale from 29th September to 4th October of 2019. While HONOR is offering discounts on almost all of its smartphones, smart wearables, and tablets, today we’ll have a look at three HONOR smartphones that not only look great and perform great but are also lighter on your pocket by a huge margin.
What’s more, there will be an additional 10% discount if you make purchases through credit or debit cards from certain banks (SBI credit or debit cards for Amazon.in purchases and Axis bank credit and debit cards as well as ICICI bank credit cards for purchases made on Flipkart).
The HONOR 8X is a great mid-range smartphone from the company. It is available in three variants: 4GB RAM+64GB storage, 6GB RAM+64GB storage, and 6GB RAM+128GB storage, expandable up to 400GB. These variants will be available for just Rs 9,999, Rs 10,999, and Rs 11,999, respectively, through both Amazon.in and Flipkart.
The HONOR 8X comes with a large display and good battery with intelligent battery saving system, becoming your go-to workhorse for gaming, entertainment as well as office tasks. The phone uses a 16.51 cm (6.5-inch) IPS LCD screen, 19.5:9 aspect ratio, sleek bezels with 91% screen to body ratio and FHD+ resolution. The back panel of the phone comes with second-generation anti-glare film, with two visual effects and 15 layers of rich reflective craftsmanship on the same glass back. It is so unique that on the left border it gives you complex intertwined and grained texture and on the right border it gives you classic, unique pattern effect of HONOR flagship phones.
The HONOR 8X recently received the Android 9 update custom packaged with HONOR’s custom OS EMUI 9.1. The update includes GPU Turbo 3.0, better UI design, gesture-based navigation, advanced battery management and other AI enhancements. It uses the legendary Kirin 710 SoC, which is great at everything especially, from a performance point of view at such affordable price. The 3750mAh battery, combined with optimized EMUI software, can go on and on and on with a single charge.
The HONOR 8X’s 20MP+2MP dual rear AI camera setup offers bright and vibrant images, making your memories shine, no matter the lighting conditions. If you’re a fan of portrait mode, you can capture such bokeh effect shots, thanks to the 2MP depth sensor. It is capable of capturing butter-smooth 1080p videos. The 16MP AI selfie camera is good at capturing your emotions and uploading them to social media or for making vlogs.
Additionally, for the readers, it comes with unique eye comfort mode certified by TUV Rheinland, which reduces blue light radiation to prevent eye fatigue and Sunlight Display Technology enables a better viewing experience under the bright sunlight.
Priced at just Rs 11,999 (usually priced at Rs 14,999) on Amazon and Flipkart, the HONOR 20i is yet another great mid-range smartphone with stylish looks, fast performance, and an AI triple-camera on the rear and 32MP AI selfie camera. The gradient design looks very beautiful and stylish that you would want to show it off wherever you go. The glass finish on the back of the phone uses sophisticated 3D photolithography technology, which gives you a dynamic prism-shaped color gradient.
HONOR 20i has a 15.77 cm (6.21-inch) IPS LCD screen with almost no bezels, and that’s great not only for watching videos with an immersive experience but also awesome for day-to-day use such as apps and gaming. There’s 4GB RAM for multitasking and up to 128GB storage that can accommodate all kinds of content, be it images, videos, music, apps, games, or your Netflix downloads. You can also put an external memory card of up to 512GB in the phone to get even more space. The phone runs Android 9 Pie-based EMUI 9.1, which comes with a boatload of features and options.
Now coming to the cameras on the phone, we reviewed the device a while ago and found it to be an excellent camera. The 24MP (F1.8) rear camera clicks good quality images not only in daylight but also in low-light conditions. The Super Night Mode performs really well and helps in capturing brighter and clearer images when there’s not enough light. The 8MP ultra-wide-angle (120-degree) camera on the rear is great for those moments when you have to fit more people into the frame or when you just want to capture a different perspective of the same scene. The 2MP camera acts as a depth sensor and that results in perfect images with DSLR-like background blur effect, all through a smartphone that fits in your palms. Talking about the 32MP AI front camera, it takes gorgeous selfies in any light conditions, owing to AI backlight imaging and screen right light filling technology.
The phone has a 3400mAh battery, that can last all day, even with relatively heavy use, and when you add 10W charging, you get a phone that you can rely on all day.
HONOR 10 Lite
The HONOR 10 Lite will be available for just Rs 7,999 on Flipkart during the festive offers as opposed to its usual price of Rs 10,999. It is yet another excellent choice of smartphone for gaming, entertainment, intensive app usage and doing other day-to-day tasks. Thanks to its Kirin 710 chipset, the phone can even be used to play heavy gaming titles. The HONOR 10 Lite (Review) recently got Android 9 Pie update, just like the HONOR 8X, custom packaged with EMUI 9.1.
The phone has a 15.77cm (6.21-inch) Full HD+ IPS LCD screen with a resolution of 2340×1080 pixels, 19.5:9 aspect ratio and 91% Screen to Body Ratio. There’s a 24MP selfie camera, so you know you’ll be able to capture all your emotions no matter conditions. At the rear, there’s a 13MP+2MP dual-camera setup which can capture excellent still images and videos. There’s a 3400mAh battery that supports 10W charging and, Face Unlock and a rear-mounted fingerprint reader for keeping your phone secure. Of course, the phone has two 4G compatible SIM card slots, Wi-Fi, GPS, Bluetooth, and NFC. The AI camera capability brings a lot of interesting add-ons into the phone such as Super Night Mode, AR Mode, AI beauty, scene recognition and making optimal adjustments for best output, among others.
If you want to go higher, the HONOR 10 Lite’s 4GB RAM+64GB storage and 6GB RAM+64GB storage variants are available for just Rs 8,999 and Rs 9,999 through Amazon.in and Flipkart during this festive sale, as opposed to the usual price of Rs. 12,499 and Rs. 14,999, respectively.
Needless to say, HONOR 10 lite 6GB RAM+64GB storage at Rs. 9,999 and HONOR 8X 6GB RAM +128GB storage are the best price ever for the products, with such features and specifications. Apart from the HONOR 8X, HONOR 20i, and the HONOR10 Lite, HONOR is also temporarily dropping prices of the HONOR View20, HONOR Play, HONOR 10, HONOR 9N, HONOR 8C, and the HONOR 7S. The company is also offering limited-time discounts on its wearables—HONOR Band 5 and HONOR Watch Magic—as well as its tablets: the HONOR Pad 5 and the HONOR Media Pad T3 series. These smartphones, tablets, and wearables are available through Amazon.in as well as Flipkart on the web.
