Huawei Honor 8 & Honor 5C Might Launch Next Month

March 30, 2016 - Written By Kristijan Lucic

Huawei is definitely one of the most interesting companies around. This China-based company is actually one of the largest smartphone manufacturers in the world now, they’ve managed to become the world’s third largest smartphone OEM last year, and are looking to fortify that position this year. Huawei is expected to introduce the ‘P9’ line of devices on April 6th in London, and it seems like new Honor devices might arrive soon as well, at least according to the latest report, read on.

A number of new Huawei-branded devices received radio transmission approval in China recently, including KNT-AL20, KNT-AL10, VIE-AL10 and VIE-AL20. Now, judging by these model numbers, these are quite probably Honor devices, and if we had to guess, we’d say that the first two devices are Honor 8 variants, while the latter two might be Honor 5C models. For those of you who don’t know, Honor is actually Huawei’s sub-brand, and the company’s Honor devices are actually amongst the best selling units. The Honor 7 which was introduced in June last year has been selling like crazy ever since, and has definitely helped Huawei come to where they are now, so the expectations are certainly high for its successor, the Honor 8. The Honor 5C, on the other hand, will be a direct successor to the Honor 4C, and you can expect this device to be really affordable, as it will be Huawei’s entry-level handset. Now, these are not the only models that surfaced in China, the TIT-AL, TIT-CL00 and TIT-TL00 have also surfaced, and even though we’re not sure which models are these exactly, it is possible we’re looking at the Enjoy 5, Huawei Y6 and Honor Play 6.

We really don’t have any spec info when it comes to either of these phones as of now, but according to the previously leaked info from one of China’s carriers, quite a few of these devices might get announced next month. Either way, you can expect the Honor 8 to be a well-specced device, probably made out of metal, and if it’s anything like the Honor 7, it will sport a sleek looking body as well. As soon as we get more info, we’ll let you know.
