Following its China debut, the Honor Band 6 was launched globally in January 2021 and there is no official word yet on whether the company will launch the fitness tracker in India. However, the device has already been certified by the Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS).

As far as its India launch is concerned, late last month, the fitness tracker - carrying the model number XMSH15HM - was spotted on the BIS certification website, hinting that it will soon be landing in the country.
