Honor 8 Pro, priced at Rs 29,999 in India will be an Amazon India exclusive, the company confirmed today. The device will go up for sale on the e-commerce portal starting July 10, post 6PM. Interestingly, July 10 is also when the Amazon Prime Day sale commences in India and Honor is known to participate in the sale. With the device launching right on sale day, it will be interesting to see whether Honor and Amazon have any additional offers and discounts for Honor 8 Pro buyers in India, though nothing is disclosed so far.
It will not be a flash sale, however, the sale comes with a catch. Honor 8 Pro will be available only to Amazon Prime members from July 10. Non-Prime members have a longer wait as the phone will be available starting July 13 for all. An upgrade to Honor 8, the new Honor 8 Pro will directly compete with the OnePlus 5 in India.
