Leaked poster offers us a glimpse at the upcoming Honor 10

Honor 10 is one of the important flagships that’s expected to make it official in the next few months. OnePlus, LG and HTC are likely to introduce their top-tier phones as well, so it seems like there will be some competing between these companies which wanted to avoid launching their most expensive phones around the same time as Samsung, Huawei, and Sony.

It’s not the first time that we report on the upcoming Honor 10, but we haven’t seen an official document mentioning the smartphone before, let along showing it. It looks like Honor is about to start promoting the flagship killer in China, …


Deal: Honor 7X costs just $1 in the US until April 8 (flash sale)

Great news for Honor fans, as the handset maker is running a sale on some of the most popular Android smartphones it launched in the last couple of years. The star of the sale is the Honor 7X, which costs just $1 until April 8.

However, limited quantities of Honor 7X will be available at this price. Also, Honor has decided to adopt the “flash sale” model for this promotion, which means the phone may show as unavailable after a certain number of units have been sold.

The so-called “Honor World Carnival” promotion includes discounts on other smartphones like Honor View 10 and Honor …

Honor 10 may be revealed on May 15

It looks like this year, with few exceptions, all smartphone companies have decided to out their flagships earlier than usual. Samsung is expected to launch the Galaxy Note 9 several weeks earlier, while HTC and LG are way late to the party.

Honor usually unveils its flagships in Q2 and this year is no exception. However, unlike last year when Honor 9 was announced in mid-June, the Honor 10 might be introduced a month earlier.

The handset maker is now sending invitations to the media for a launch event set for May 15. The event will take place in London, UK, and is likely to focus …

Honor has just confirmed a few of its smartphones are now being updated with the new EMUI 8. The company’s new user interface comes with Android Oreo, although some Honor smartphones will only be getting some of the EMUI 8’s features without Oreo.

Unknown Honor model receives regulatory approval in China; this could be the Honor 7C

The Honor LND-AL30 has been discovered after passing through China’s TENNA regulatory agency. Considering that the Honor 5X and 6X led to the release of both the 5C and 6C, this could be the Honor 7C, although that is not official at this point. The Honor 7X launched last December. Unfortunately, TENNA only disseminated photos of the device and did not include any specs. But the images do tell us a lot about this new phone.  

If this model is the Honor 7C, it will have dual cameras on both the back and front. That is one more camera than the Honor 7X; the latter features a 16MP …

Honor V10 is getting a small update that adds two new features important to those who use their smartphones for entertainment more often than not. Yes, the V10 is getting a “Party Mode,” but also a new optimization feature for the Game Suite app.

Apparently, when enabled, Party Mode allows multiple Honor V10 smartphones to connect via NFC (Near Field Communication) and play the same tune a the same time across all handsets. That’s supposed to produce a multi-channel sound effect for a stunning audio experience.
