The HOTA rollout has started in batches and will be rolled out to everyone by March 5.
"'Honor 9 Lite' will be the most affordable smartphone in the Indian market to support 'Face Unlock' feature and will further emerge as the best value for money smartphone with superior hardware and software configurations," P Sanjeev, Vice President, Sales, Huawei Consumer Business Group, said in a statement.
