At an event in Beijing, George Zhao, the president of Honor, made some bold claims in regards to the company. Zhao claims the phone will be the world’s first and that the launch of the device will propel the brand to stardom.

Reflected by the success of the Honor 10i, Honor has seen rapid growth over the past few years. It can be mostly accredited to its affordable devices that pack the same features as the best in the market. Due to this, we believe these devices will be popular, with the prices falling somewhere in the early Dh3,000s.
