The company, through its 'Honor' sub-brand would be launching an open source Operating System and a communication protocol for Internet of Things (IoT) devices in China, and is working towards building an ecosystem in India to enter the home automation or the smart home segment.

"The demand for smartphones will be huge. Our initial strategy will be to focus more on the mid and entry-level phones and gradually move towards the high-end segment," Huawei India business head Wang Guodong said, averring the company will pay more attention on the smartphones over the next couple of years.

With its Chinese eco-system setting the stage for the company to announce launching of the ambitious 'HiLink' - a communication protocol for web-based home devices - Wang said it was working on its plan and talking to various stake holders to build up a similar eco-system in India.

Even as he conceded that the launch of 'Hilink' in India was not possible in the near future, Honor Global president George Zhao asserted India was a very important market for the company and the entry of its latest products and technologies will not delayed for long.
