Honor-7C-India

Honor 7C is likely to debut in India on May 22. Huawei brand Honor on Monday evening sent out an invite for an event where the new smartphone is expected to be launched. While the venue and timing of the event are yet to be confirmed, the Chinese brand featured an image on the ‘Save the Date’ invite – specifying a new Honor 7 series launch. Additionally, an official teaser on Twitter suggests the new smartphone launch will be the Honor 7C. The latest development importantly emerges just before the launch of the Honor 10 that is taking place at 6:30pm IST in London later today, May 15.

The teaser posted by the official Honor India account on Twitter showcases two Honor units with thin bezels. Apparently, the two phones featured in the teaser are not two distinct models but just one model flipped horizontally to highlight a dual camera setup. It also includes a #LoveSeven hashtag that points to the new Honor 7 series launch. “We can’t keep calm as the season to fall in love is here!! Stay tuned cause #LoveSeven is coming your way! [sic]” the tweet reads.
