Press Release Quote
According to George Zhao, President of Honor:
“Before 2016, most phones came in just three colours: black, white and gold. Honor introduced Phantom Blue in 2016, Phantom Grey in 2017, and now the exquisite Aurora, a true breakthrough in smartphone design. We believe the recipe for success is simple – give consumers a really good product! That’s what we work hard for every day at the honor. But we don’t just stop at making a good product. We want to co-create a new lifestyle with young people worldwide. We listen to them, we bounce ideas around with them, and we cheer for them. They are our inspiration.”
Ayyappan Rajagopal, Senior Director, Mobiles said:
“Honor 10 brings an exciting new proposition to India and we believe it will be a game changer in the flagship segment. It has established a new category of intelligent phones that truly weaves AI into every functionality. It’s also one of the most beautiful phones in the premium phone segment and we are excited to launch it on Flipkart.”
