Huawei to bring a sub-INR20K pop-up camera phone to India this month

Michail, 18 July 2019

Huawei is gearing up to bring its first pop-up camera phone to India by the end of this month. According to a trustworthy source, the device will retail under INR 20,000 ($290) and will cater to the millennial audience. Oppo, Realme and vivo already offer such devices so now Huawei is aiming to provide a direct rival.

Huawei to announce pop-up camera phone priced under INR 20,000 in India

The rumored phone is going to be either the Huawei P Smart Z or the Y9 Prime (2019) - both featuring pop-up cameras and retailing in other markets around the $290 range.

By releasing a phone in the above-mentioned price category, Huawei would be going straight after the Realme X which was recently announced in India and is one of the few devices offering a pop-up camera under the INR 20,000 threshold.
