“This marks the successful launch of the honor 9 Lite, following honor’s appointment of Shopee as its exclusive e-commerce partner.
“The demand of the honor 9 Lite has far exceeded our expectations,” said Shopee regional managing director Ian Ho.
He added the smartphone is a hit among the tech-savvy Malaysians.
“In order not to disappoint the honor fans amidst the overwhelming demand, I am glad to say that we have managed to secure a second batch of honor 9 Lite to go on Shocking Sale again on Wednesday, March 14,” he said.
Meanwhile, honor Malaysia head George Zhao Zhiwei said as a global leading smartphone e-brand, honor needs to find a partner with an equally strong reputation.
“Shopee which is the leading e-commerce platform in Southeast Asia and Taiwan, has proven to us that working with only the best can strengthen our position in this region,” he said.
He added honor is delighted with the result of the Shocking Sales and will continue to work with Shopee for more future collaborations.
“Our fans and customers can also look forward to ‘The honor Day’ celebration happening soon,” Zhao said.
Whoever who missed out the previous flash sales can look forward to the upcoming flash sale of the honor 9 Lite happening this Wednesday (14 March) at 9.00am.
The honor 9 Lite will be up for grabs at a discounted price of RM699 – a huge markdown from its recommended retail price of RM749.
