Honor had released a new device launch teaser image quite recently, the company is getting ready to launch a new phone on May 27 in Berlin, but it seems like the company will hold a separate event in China four days before that happens. Honor, called ‘Glory’ in China, had released a new teaser image on its official Weibo (Chinese social network) account, teasing something for May 23, and this teaser is rather odd, read on.
If you take a look at the provided image, you will see a young man who is in two places at the same time, the upper half of his body is at a football stadium, while the lower part is in a classroom. Now, we don’t know what is Honor (aka Glory) preparing to launch, but it could be some sort of a wearable maybe? Or a smartphone? In any case, this product will become available in China first, and it is even possible that it will stay exclusive to China, it all depends on what it is. Some of you might think this is the Honor 9 launch for China, but that is highly unlikely, chances are that the Honor 9 will launch on May 27 in Berlin first, and it will almost certainly become available outside of China first. Speaking of which, the Honor 9 is a direct successor to the Honor 8 which was announced last year, and has been quite a success for the company, mainly thanks to its sleek looks, solid specs and an affordable price tag.
Huawei owns Honor, but Honor operates as a separate entity, and releases its very own devices, which ship with Huawei’s SoCs and software. The Honor 9, if leaks are to be believed, will sport a dual camera setup, just like the Honor 8, but it could sport a fingerprint scanner below the display, while that sensor was placed on the back of the Honor 8. Huawei’s HiSilicon Kirin 960 64-bit octa-core processor will almost certainly fuel the Honor 9, and the device will probably be made out of metal and glass. You can expect to see 4GB of RAM included in this phone, and the phone will probably sport a 5.2-inch display, just like its predecessor.
