The firm, backed by Huawei, hasn’t given much away about the launch event but has said “a brand new product will be landing from Honor, the smartphone brand for the brave” along with “Something special is coming and we hope you can be part of it.”

A hashtag - #NewHonorSmartphone - confirms that it will be a new phone and a poll Honor did on its Facebook page reveals that fans think it will be the Honor V9 with the Honor 8 Pro in second place. These were followed by the Honor Magic and Honor 9.
