They say Huawei’s global smartphone sales numbers surged of late chiefly on the back of flagships like the Mate 7, P7 or P8, but the Honor family probably played its part in the impressive, trend-defying growth as well.
After all, the Honor 7 recently rolled out in a range of European markets at a palatable sub-$350 price with decidedly high-end specifications in tow including an octa-core Kirin 935 chip, 3GB RAM, and 20MP dual-LED flash camera.
Then you have the slightly lower-end, lower-cost Honor 7i with a rotating snapper, plus the ultra-cheap yet respectable Honor 4A. Sadly, the lineup remains somewhat lower-profile than the P or Mate rosters, which is why Huawei will kick off a host of lucrative Honor-exclusive deals around the world in roughly 24 hours.
From Malaysia to Germany, Russia to Spain, Vietnam to Mexico, and India to the UK, buyers of Honor phones and select accessories shall get discounts, various coupons, mysterious “gifts”, free entries to contests, complimentary Spotify subscriptions, and even on-the-house Uber rides tomorrow, November 11.
The Honor Gala Day 2015, as the name suggests, will last 24 hours at best, so you’d better hurry once the promotions begin if you want to score 50 percent off all smartphones in Mexico, 50 percent off all mobile accessories in Russia, Germany, the UK, France, Spain, Italy, and the Netherlands, three-month Spotify access with Honor 7 purchases in Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary, and Romania, or “festive” freebies in India if you jump on the Honor 4C, 4X, 6 Plus, or 7 bandwagon.
Official vMall e-stores headline the discounted festivities, with local third-party retailers like Flipkart India, Mobile World Vietnam, Extreme Digital Hungary or Digikala Iran also joining the bash.
