Chinese handset maker Honor is set to launch its smartwatch called the Honor Watch Magic and Honor Band 4 Running smart band in India along with the View 20 smartphone on January 29. The Honor Watch Magic would be a 9.8-mm thin smartwatch and sports features such as touch screen Retina AMOLED display, dual-chipset low-energy consumption system, and three-satellite positioning for multiple sports mode, industry sources told IANS on Tuesday.
The smartwatch would also feature TruSeen 3.0 smarter heart-rate monitor and Trusleep 2.0 sleep quality smart tracking. The Honor Band 4 Running would professionally manage the running posture through six-axis sensors, the sources added.
The device would be introduced on Amazon India and its pre-bookings began on January 15. Notably, the Honor Band 4 is already available for purchase in India for Rs 2,599 and it takes on the Xiaomi Mi Band 3 which has been the popular smart band in India since its launch late last year.
The smartphone, announced at Honor’s Artology event in Hong Kong in December 2018, has a new full-view display experience, courtesy the Honor’s “All-View Display”. The Honor View 20 is said to debut in India for around Rs 40,000 because it features punch hole camera design and it’s the first phone to launch the trendy design in India. The View 20 is also Honor’s first phone with the HiSilicon Kirin 980 chipset. It also rocks a 48MP rear camera along with Honor’ signature design.
