UPDATE: HONOR will stick to its original plans to announce its products on February 24, despite the fact MWC got canceled. The company will host a livestream event on said date, at 6:30PM CET. You’ll be able to watch it from the company’s official YouTube channel. The company will also host a livestreaming venue in Barcelona, and an experience zone for newly-launched products.
As you can see, HONOR is using the “all-scenario intelligence” caption for this event. Now, the company also shared some additional information regarding products it will announce.
HONOR did not specify an embargo for this information, so we’re free to share the info with you. Do note that we only have some information regarding what products are coming, not specific info on each of them.
HONOR will announce a bunch of new devices at MWC 2020
During its MWC 2020 press conference, HONOR plans to announce several new products. One of those products will be its new flagship, the HONOR View30 PRO. That device will probably take the spotlight during the event.
In addition to the HONOR View30 PRO, the company also plans to introduce the HONOR 9X PRO smartphone. In addition to that, the HONOR MagicBook 14 & 15 laptops will make an appearance at this event.
That’s not all, though. HONOR is also planning to show off some wearables during the event. The HONOR TWS (True Wireless) earphones will also be announced, but we do not know what they’ll be called just yet.
The last product that HONOR will announce is the special edition of the HONOR MagicWatch 2. A regular HONOR MagicWatch 2 already launched, and we’re not sure what this special edition will be about.
So, as you can see, the company is planning to announce quite a few products at MWC 2020. HONOR was rather quiet at CES 2020, so it plans to make up for that in Barcelona.
The HONOR View30 PRO will probably take the spotlight
The HONOR View30 PRO will be the company’s first smartphone to ship with the Kirin 990. That is the same chip that is fueling the Huawei Mate 30 series, and that will fuel the Huawei P40 series.
The HONOR View30 PRO will probably be made out of metal and glass. The device will include really thin bezels, and quite probably a display camera hole. That hole will probably be centered, but we’re not sure yet.
We’re also expecting the View30 PRO to include quite a few cameras on the back. It will include somewhere between 3 and 5 cameras, and those cameras are expected to be quite good.
Android 10 will come pre-installed on the device, but chances are that Google’s services will not be available. HONOR is Huawei’s company, so it has the same ban as Huawei. Things may get resolved by then, though, so we’ll see.
