The Honor Pad 5 series tablets were unveiled at the same time Honor took the wraps off its Honor 20 series in India last month. This came as a surprise as fewer brands these days seem to be taking the effort of launching good-quality tablets. Honor had informed us that the tablets would be up for retail in the country soon but hadn’t given us an exact time frame. Well, the wait is now over, and the two tablets can now be purchased via Flipkart.
Commenting on the sale of the Honor Pad 5, Suhail Tariq, CMO at HONOR India said, “We are delighted to partner with Flipkart for the latest HONOR Pad 5 series. The partnership will enable us to reach a larger audience, thereby, allowing more people to experience the products. Our latest HONOR Pad 5 series not only highlights our long-term commitment to India, but also our intent of introducing a line-up of technologically innovative products.”
