Last Wednesday India celebrated the festival of light Diwali and many retailers jumped on the festive hype train, launching all kinds of promos. Honor sold over 1 million devices achieving over 300% growth, compared to last year.
On November 11 there was another holiday, this time in China - Singles’ Day (you know, because of 11.11). The Huawei subsidiary managed to reach the top sales spot for smartphone brands both at JD.com and Tmall.com, two of the major Chinese retailers.
