Huawei ready to announce new Honor device for Europe
An unknown Honor device is coming to Europe this June 20th. Signs point to either the recently announced Honor V8 or a new smartphone entirely.

"Be who you are, not who the world wants you to be"

Huawei is inviting users in Europe to a virtual launch event this coming June 20th where the Chinese manufacturer is expected to announce and launch a new Honor device for the region.

Whether or not the Honor announcement will involve a completely original Honor device or a simple re-release of an existing China-only model remains unknown. We suspect that Huawei will make official the flagship Honor V8 smartphone that was recently announced on May 10th.

Words like "exciting" and "daring" also suggest that the smartphone may have a strong focus on VR. The Honor V8 is the first consumer smartphone from the company to sport a QHD panel where the high pixel density is vital for a better VR experience. Huawei, for example, could make special use of the 360-degree shooting mode and dual camera features of the Honor V8.

Of course, an entirely new product is possible, though there appears to be no rumors or leaks to suggest that this could be the case. We'll update again once Huawei makes the announcement in two weeks time.

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.
