While the Honor 8 Pro goes on pre-order in Europe, Huawei launches the Honor Beta program in the US, promising to offer for testing both hardware and software products scheduled to launch "in one or even two years from now."

Huawei has recently entered the US market officially, but there is still no US carrier that has Huawei handsets in its portfolio. However, AT&T is apparently in talks with the Chinese brand, and this might change soon. Since the US market is a very important one for any smartphone maker, Huawei has decided to launch its Honor Beta program in the country before inking the deal with AT&T.

According to Huawei, the Honor Beta USA program will give the opportunity to test both hardware and software products to a limited number of consumers. While other brands usually test firmware updates before releasing them to the masses, Huawei's program has a longer reach, as the company plans to test products "slated to reach the market in one or even two years from now."

Those interested can sign up on this Facebook page and the Honor Beta team will check the submissions "to match applicants with specific opportunities." For now, there is no information on the products that will be offered to the testers, but we will keep an eye on this story.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
