Bharti Airtel is aggressively partnering with handset manufacturers to offer bundled data. In a recent move, Airtel collaborated with Chinese brand Honor to offer extra data with the recently launched mid-range smartphone Honor 7X. Airtel is offering up to 90GB free data for the purchasers of Honor 7X, and this offer applies to both Airtel prepaid and postpaid customers across the country.
The additional 90GB data is divided into 15GB data per month for six months. The Honor 7X Airtel customers have to recharge with the Rs 349 plan to avail the extra 15GB data. That said, the price of the Rs 349 plan differs with each circle. However, it's an open market plan, and any Airtel customer can recharge the plan. This case is for Airtel prepaid customers purchasing the Honor 7X smartphone.
In case if the customer is an Airtel postpaid subscriber, he/she should be on Airtel myPlan Infinity 499 tariff plan. Additional data will be credited to the customer's account every month, only if the customer did not change the handset. If he/she change the handset, then the additional data offer will not work.
Speaking about the Airtel's Rs 349 tariff plan, it is valid for 28 days from the date of recharge. So, a customer should recharge six months to avail the complete benefit of 90GB under the offer period. And yes, the recharge should be done continuously for six months.
In the past, Airtel has partnered with brands such as Xiaomi, Motorola to offer additional data. The Honor 7X is already an exciting smartphone, and with this Airtel offer, the deal is even better.
The Honor 7X is the latest smartphone from Honor's house. It has a 5.9-inch Full HD+ 18:9 display and is powered by Huawei's own HiSilicon Kirin 659 chipset. The device comes in two variants- a 3GB RAM/32GB storage model and a 4GB RAM/64GB storage model. The base variant is priced at Rs 12,999, whereas the latter costs Rs 15,999. Both the variants have a microSD card slot for storage expansion.
The smartphone rocks two cameras at the back- a 16MP RGB sensor and a 2MP depth sensor. It boots Android 7.0 Nougat based EMUI and is backed by a 3340mAh battery.
