Currently, Madhav Sheth has not revealed any details as to which company he will be joining in future. However, a recent report suggests that Madhav might soon take charge as Honor India CEO. It is said that the Chinese smartphone maker Honor is looking to India return by July end. The company is expected to launch its new smartphones in India which could be sold via an online shopping portal. It is also reported that Honor has started setting up their team in India. The company is also in touch with several senior executives from Realme and Xiaomi to see if they are willing to join.

To recall, Honor was the subbrand of Huawei. However, Huawei was forced to sell Honor back in 2020 due to sanctions imposed by the US government. Honor has not been active when it comes to launching smartphones at least in the Indian market. However, the brand continued to maintain its presence in India by launching a few products apart from smartphones. Most recently, Honor has launched the MagicBook X14 (2023) and MagicBook X16 (2023) laptops in India.
