HONOR to announce "epic" new smartphone at CES 2017
Honor will unveil a new smartphone tomorrow (January 3) at 2:30 PM PST, the company has announced. HONOR made the revelation in a tweet on December 30 promising something “epic”, though specific details regarding the device haven’t been confirmed.
HONOR has made a series of tweets regarding the new product, featuring lines like, “R U brave enough to expect more?”, “A phone has never been so scrumptious” and “Fiercely unlocked.” HONOR also published a photo taken with the handset, which likely features a dual-camera setup to fit Honor’s“double or nothing” slogan, in Vegas yesterday.

Despite the cryptic tweets, HONOR may simply use the CES platform to announce the US release of one of its current smartphones. The HONOR 5X was launched in the US at CES 2016 several months after it first appeared in China — the latest HONOR X handset, the HONOR 6X (pictured at the top of the page) was released in China last October but hasn’t made its way stateside yet. Similarly, there’s also a chance HONOR could announce the US launch of the HONOR Magic, a concept phone recently released in China.
