The Honor 8’s launch event in India saw the arrival of two other Huawei phones dubbed the Honor 8 Smart and Honor Holly 3. The last is notably the brand’s first Make in India phone and was manufactured at its Chennai plant.

Starting off with Honor 8 Smart, the handset is priced at Rs 19999. It serves as a lower-specced version of the brand’s flagship P9 without the dual cameras, coming across as a rebranded model of the company’s P9 Lite. It makes do with a single 13MP primary camera which has been equipped with features like an aperture of f/2.0 and Sony IMX214 sensor.
