"We found a gap in tablet segment. Hence, we launched a tablet which can occupy position of second device of people after phone. It has 4100 mAh battery which can support 12 hours of movie watching, websites browsing and checking mail for up to 8 hours," Huawei India's Director Sales (Devices Business) P Sanjeev said at the launch.
He said the company has not set any sales target and entry in to tablet segment is its effort to meet the consumer's need of mobile devices.
"This tablet has aircraft grade aluminium body which is found in expensive devices," Sanjeev said. The company also unveiled its first smartphone on Android Marshmallow platform Honor 5C for Rs 10,999 which it expects can mitigate call drop problem.
"Often people cover one antenna in a mobile phone while talking. We have provided dual antenna in Honor 5C so that if one antenna is covered, the other can receive signal. We have attempted to resolve call drop problem on devices front," Sanjeev said.

Honor 5C's camera has professional features like focus mode, shutter speed, white balance etc. The smartphone has 8 megapixel front camera and 13 megapixel rear camera, 2GB RAM, 16 GB internal storage and external storage expandable up to 128 GB.
Honor has set 300 per cent sales growth of its devices this year. Huawei sold one million smartphones in 2015 that includes 8,00,000 Honor branded phones in India. Globally, Huawei shipped 108 million smartphones in 2015 and became the third largest player after Apple and Samsung.

"We have optimised hardware and incorporated best things from the world for a good consumer experience. We know design is best done in Paris, components in Japan, algorithms in Russia, software in India and USA for chipset," Huawei India President Consumer Business Group Allen Wang said.

Both the devices have in-built panic button feature, which can trigger emergency alert, that is mandatory for all mobile devices from January 1, 2017.
Honor started sale of its tablet on Flipkart from today but Honor 5C will start selling from June 30 on Flipkart and HiHonor website. "The registration for Honor 5C begins today. There will be flash sale (limited unit) of Honor 5C on June 30," Sanjeev said.
