Unlike most other companies which are involved in the business of manufacturing smartphones and other accessories, Honor has refrained from sharing much about their plans for 2021. Till now, nobody in the trade had a fair idea about the kind of devices the company has been planning to launch or some of the major decisions it is about to take this year.
But now, a leak has divulged the kind of plans the China-based company has for this year. Some of the information that has emerged because of the leak is the kind one was already familiar with. At the same time, there are a lot of details that almost serve as a revelation. The information, apart from providing key information about some of the products, familiarizes one with the kind of strategy the company might have adopted for this year.
Digital Chat Station, a leaker on Weibo, has claimed that Honor is aiming to launch new entry-level and mid-range phones in the near future. As of now, there is no concrete information about the models it is planning to release but there is a very good chance of the Honor 11, Honor 11x and some of its variants being introduced in the commercial market this year. People are also wondering whether the entry model smartphone, touted to be released as the Honor 10A, will emerge as Honor 9A’s successor.
According to the leaker, the next flagship smartphone from Honor will be the Honor 40. This phone, he reveals, will come armed with a new processor and will be launched either in the month of May or June. He emphasizes the point that the camera performance and features of the Honor 40 will be its biggest selling points. As many of the innovations made in the space of camera technology were done by Huawei (which used to own Honor earlier) are with Honor now, most of the phones launched under the brand are expected to offer high-quality camera performance.
The leaker also stated that the Honor Magic phone, which would be foldable in nature, will be launched alongside a flagship tablet. Some of the reports released earlier indicated towards the Honor Magic series making a comeback in 2021. Now, the claims made by this leaker have helped in consolidating this piece of information.
The brand coming out with a foldable smartphone makes for big news as Huawei, the former parent company of Honor, has already introduced three foldable phones of its own in the market. If the claims made by the leaker turn out to be true, Honor will finally have a foldable smartphone launched under its name. The tablet, launched by Honor, should be Honor V6’s successor which arrived last year.
