Honor New Product Launch Event on December 13; Honor 9 Lite or Note 9 or Magic 2 Possible

Chinese smartphone manufacturer Huawei’s sub-brand Honor has recently launched its latest flagship, the Honor V10, just a few weeks ago. However, according to some new posters on their official Weibo page, another launch will be three days later, on December 13. It is speculated the device is either the Honor Note 9 or Honor 9 Lite or maybe the Honor Magic 2.

The two posters are Chinese singer and actor Hu Ge. In the first poster, he is shown wearing sunglasses on his face, while the second shows him wearing glasses on the back of his head. Interestingly, a letter written in the bold white font on the poster hints that the upcoming device may feature dual rear and front cameras, hence four cameras.

Smartphones with four cameras are not new to Huawei. We have already seen the Honor 9i, rebranded as Huawei Maimang 6 in China, the Huawei Nova 2i in Malaysia, and the Huawei Mate 10 Lite in other markets. These naming schemes and product releases get confusing, and having so many names for a product makes no sense.

There were rumors that Honor would launch Honor 9 Lite/Youth alongside the Honor V10, but it didn’t happen. But Honor has recently discounted the Honor Magic by 1000 Yuan just a week back, which hints at the launch of the Honor Magic 2. The Honor Magic didn’t get a launch outside China, so let’s not get ahead of ourselves.

Also, the Huawei Honor launched the Honor Magic last year on December 16, which is certainly not a coincidence. The device was beautiful with curved edges and offered features ahead of its time, like contextually aware AI, dual cameras, and the fastest charging graphene batteries, which weren’t mainstream then.

The media invites are out for the event. Let’s see after three days what this new smartphone from Honor has to offer this time.
