Honor has confirmed its return to India, and the Chinese smartphone maker will launch new models in the country soon. Almost three years after the company started relying on Noida-based PSAV Global to distribute its smartphones in India, Honor is expected to launch phones that were launched in the Chinese market earlier this year, such as the Honor 90. The company recently started teasing a comeback via the Honor Tech India account on X (formerly known as Twitter) and Instagram.

Madhav Sheth, who stepped down as Realme’s vice president of business and corporate strategy in June, teased news of the launch of new Honor-branded smartphones in India on X. Sheth recently confirmed his partnership with the Chinese phone maker, but didn’t specify which phone will be coming to the country first. A recent report suggested that the Honor 90 will launch in India in September.
