Joining the ever-increasing portfolio of ultra-affordable smartphones is the latest Honor 7S, which was launched in India earlier this month. Priced at Rs 6,999, Honor 7S is now ready to go on sale for the first time in the country exclusively on Flipkart. Honor's latest smartphone challenges several other budget phones, but the question is whether it is worth buying as a secondary phone or even as a primary one.
Honor 7S competes against the likes of Xiaomi Redmi 5A, YU Ace and others. The smartphone will be available 14th September 2018, 12 noon onwards exclusively on Flipkart and Hihonor store. Before we get to the reasons why Honor 7S makes for a sound choice, the smartphone comes with some exclusive launch offers.
Buyers get up to Rs 2,200 cashback and 50GB additional data with Reliance Jio on the purchase of Honor 7S. There's also an exchange offer, where customers can avail at least Rs 1,000 off while purchasing the Honor 7S. Honor is additionally offering 15 percent Supercash on buying the smartphone using Mobikwik wallet and Flipkart users can avail 5 percent off with Axis Bank Buzz card.
