A presentation next week could finally lift the curtains on the Honor 7 Plus or Honor 8.

Chinese manufacturer Huawei has sent out press invitations for an event on August 10, 2015. Details on what the new device will be, however, remain a mystery.

For now, it appears unlikely that Huawei will reveal the Mate 8 flagship. A more likely option is the Honor 7 Plus, which would offer not just a metal casing, but also a 5.5-inch FHD screen, a fingerprint scanner, a Kirin processor, 3 GB RAM, and 16 GB eMMC.

In contrast to the Honor 7 Plus, a potential Honor 8 could be even better. In addition to a larger 6-inch QHD screen, the smartphone could carry 4 GB RAM, 64 GB eMMC, a fingerprint scanner, and a rear 20.7 MP camera.

The two new devices are expected to launch in Asian markets first, but their official reveal and announcement times are unknown.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
