After Honor 7X, Honor 9 Lite is now being manufactured in Tamil Nadu

Huawei’s Honor brand back in February started manufacturing the Honor 7X in Tamil Nadu, India in partnership with Flex at its plant in Sriperumbudur, near Chennai. Today the company announced that now started manufacturing Honor 9 Lite locally in India in the same plant, as a commitment to ‘Make in India’ initiative.

Today at an event in China the company said that its top-end and some of the mid-range smartphones, including the Honor 9 Lite will get a new GPU Turbo technology to boost the phone’s performance, especially when gaming.

Commenting on the new move, P Sanjeev, Vice-President, Sales, Huawei Consumer Business Group stated:

When we started manufacturing devices in September 2016 with Honor Holly 3, it was our first step towards bringing Honor closer to our fans in India in the years to come. The local production of our top-seller Honor 9 Lite today is yet another milestone in our 16 year journey in India. The “Make in India” initiative has been a great opportunity for us to contribute to India’s evolution in the technology and manufacturing sector
