Honor has teased a smartphone launch with a dual ring image, which resembles the Honor X9a or Honor Magic series camera modules.

  • Madhav Sheth and Honor have teased a smartphone launch in India.
  • Speculations are rife that it could either be Honor X9a or Honor Magic series device.
  • It could also be a countdown to launch with individual letters of the HONOR brand.

Honor India’s comeback is on track with Madhav Sheth at its helm is no more news. The company has launched its Pad X9 Android tablet quietly in the country and is expected to launch its flagship Honor 90 series in India in September.

It seems the company is running a countdown on its official Twitter handle with the letters in its brand name. After tweeting the letter ‘H’ yesterday to say Hello India, the brand has tweeted the letter ‘O’ closely resembling the camera module of Honor X9a. Let’s take a look.

Honor Could Launch The X9a in India


Honor India is currently gearing up for its comeback in the Indian smartphone market and building hype on its social media platforms. Both Honor Tech and Madhav Sheth are running a countdown on social media platforms leading to the much-anticipated announcement from the brand. Yesterday, the company and Sheth teased the comeback in India with the letter H and Hello India message.

Today, they have shared the letter O in a similar aesthetic, with the ‘Optimum Tech is on its way’ message. The style and design of the letter O have sparked a debate online, with many speculating that the debut smartphone from the brand in India could be the Honor X9a.

Considering that Honor just launched Honor X9 in India, X9a could be a logical next step as far as the nomenclature is concerned. Moreover, the dual-layer circular O symbol is uncannily similar to the camera island of the X9a. At this point, all of this is just speculation, and we can expect the brand to tweet out N, O, and R letters before announcing anything concrete.
