“Honor Magic Watch 2 smartwatch ships with the Kirin A1 chipset, while the Honor Band 5i fitness band flaunts a 0.96-inch colour touch display”
Honor 9X smartphone, Honor Magic Watch 2 smartwatch and Band 5i fitness band are all scheduled to launch in India on January 14th. Both the Honor Magic Watch 2 and Band 5i will be exclusively available on Amazon.in when launched as the “Notify Me” page has finally gone live on the e-commerce site. The listing shows off the design and specifications of the products, but hide the pricing and availability details, which are expected to be revealed on January 14th. Similarly, the Honor 9X will be available on Flipkart. To recall, the Honor Magic Watch 2 42mm packs a smaller 1.2-inch circular display, while the 46mm gets a relatively larger 1.39-inch AMOLED display. We recently got a chance to go hands-on with the Honor Magic Watch 2 ahead of its launch in India.
