The launch of Xiaomi Mi MIX managed to surprise many people. People were expecting Xiaomi to introduce only the Xiaomi Mi Note 2 back in October, and instead, Xiaomi introduced two high-end phablets. Xiaomi refers to the Mi MIX as the concept smartphone, as it is considerably different than everything out there at the moment, and it is already available for purchase. This phablet features a 91.3% screen-to-body ratio, and it is made out of ceramic, click here if you’d like to know more.
Soon after Xiaomi launched the Xiaomi Mi MIX rumors and leaks started popping up saying that other Chinese smartphone manufacturers are also working on their unique smartphones. Meizu’s bezel-less smartphone leaked several times, and so did Huawei’s. Recent rumors suggested that Huawei is working on a new device that will ship without physical buttons, and one of the company’s execs confirmed that they’re planning to launch a new phone in December, though he did not release any additional details aside from the fact that the device will ship with the company’s new fast charging technology. In addition to that, rumors suggested that such a device will be equipped with fast charging technology which will let it charge up to 50% in just 5 minutes. Having that in mind, some new info just surfaced in China. An industry insider said earlier today that a new Honor-branded smartphone is coming tomorrow, and that this is the concept smartphone that everyone is talking about. If the info is to be believed, Huawei wants to avoid conflicts with their Huawei Mate 9 Pro and Porsche Design Mate 9 devices, as this smartphone will be rather unique, which is why it is launching under the Honor brand. According to some additional rumored info, the phone will actually miss some crucial smartphone hardware components, like a camera and a speaker, but will come with a set of peripherals that will provide required functions.
Honor actually shared a teaser image on their official Weibo (China’s social network) page which suggests something new is coming tomorrow, so the aforementioned rumor might as well be true, unless this teaser announces the launch of the Honor 6S which leaked recently. In any case, we’ll share more info tomorrow when the company introduces their mysterious smartphone, and if this is truly the concept smartphone that was talked about recently, we’re in for an interesting announcement, that’s for sure.
