New Delhi, March 17 (IANS) Huawei’s sub-brand Honor has rolled out the “Ride Mode” feature via HOTA update (Huawei Over The Air) exclusively for its Honor 9 Lite smartphone in India.

The new feature urges consumers to follow responsible and safe smartphone usage operating a two-wheel vehicle.
“The ‘Ride Mode’ feature will be useful for millions of Indian bike riders and encourage safe smartphone usage while bike riding,” P Sanjeev, Vice President, Sales, Huawei Consumer Business Group, said in a statement.

Our practice so far has been to be non-conformist rather than flowing with the tide. We know this is not the easy path but then it has always been so. It is credibility and independence that are dear to us and epitomise our core values. We will question what is wrong and espouse what we feel is the right cause, at the same time fully conscious that both are relative terms but we will go by the interpretations are rooted in the collective consciousness of the people. At the same time, we will not stake any claim to be moralists as that can the most difficult test to pass and we admit it.
