Near bezel-less Huawei Honor handset will “Max Your View” this December

Chinese OEM Huawei has become a force in the Android industry, with the manufacturer becoming the third-largest globally with its sights set on upending Apple and Samsung.

Honor is a Huawei sub-brand with the goal of churning out appealing devices in both design and specs while keeping the price budget-friendly. It is this goal that has motivated Huawei to prepare for a December announcement of which will entail an upcoming Honor handset that looks to be bezel-less.

The expected out Huawei Honor handset has been featured in a “Save the Date” poster for an announcement that will take place on Tuesday, December 5, 2017 in London, UK. The smartphone on the right of the poster shows a handset that has extremely small bezels on the left and right sides with more bezel on the top and bottom (presumably at the top for sensor and camera placement). The device looks to have a wide-screen and, from the “Max Your View” statement, we can tell that the goal is to give people more screen real estate on which to read, watch TV shows and movies, game, and so on.

The large 6-inch screen, once shunned as “too big,” has now become a movement in which Android OEMs lead the way. Samsung started this with its 6.2-inch Galaxy S8+ earlier this year and its 6.3-inch Galaxy Note 8 this Fall, followed by Google with its 6-inch Pixel 2 XL. According to what we know about the upcoming OnePlus 5T, it is also slated to join the 6-inch, 18:9 aspect ratio screen party. Presumably, the Huawei Honor handset could very well follow the 18:9 aspect ratio trend from companies such as LG in the LG G6, LG V30, and LG V30+, though Samsung’s own Galaxy S8, Galaxy S8+, and Galaxy Note 8 all arrived with an 18.5:9 aspect ratio.

We don’t know anything else about the handset other than its “Honor” branding, which means that we could be looking at a 6-inch, 18:9 aspect ratio smartphone at a $200 or so price point, which would match what Huawei has already done in the newly-announced Honor 7X. A Snapdragon¬†processor and 2GB or 3GB of RAM is likely to be included, though the exact specifications are still up in the air.

We’ll be back to report more on this mysterious, bezel-less Huawei Honor handset as more information becomes available. Would you be interested?
