Today, Huawei announced that it will be bringing its Honor lineup of smartphones to Latin America, starting with the new Honor 7X and the upcoming Honor View 10. The range's expanded availability will begin in 2018.
"At the center of Honor’s overall strategy is a focus on leading the value-driven market by delivering the best product quality and technology innovation at unconventional prices, and this commitment will not be any different with our customers in Latin America," said Zack Zhang, Vice President of Honor USA. "Honor will continue to invest heavily in order to fill a consumer need in an underserved market with the most competitive and inspirational products to Latin America."
The company says that the Honor brand is geared toward "digital natives", offering high-end specs and design for an affordable price. Indeed, Huawei announced U.S. availability of the Honor 7X a couple of weeks ago, promising an upper mid-range handset for just $199.
The View 10 is the flagship of the bunch, with the company's new in-house Kirin 970 chipset, which features a Neural Processing Unit. This provides new camera features, better battery life, and more.
Huawei didn't provide pricing or a specific release date for when its devices will arrive in Latin America, but we'll likely learn more soon.
