New website, new products. Honor pushes on.


With their smartphone business currently impacted by the Trump Trade Termination, Honor are slightly changing direction.

Everything we’ve looked at recently has been highly rated. The Honor MagicWatch 2 was top class (and I wanted to keep it), and the Magic EarBuds are shockingly good.

Today, more devices – the MagicBook Pro, the ViewPad 6, the Honor Router 3, the Honor Vision X1 Series, a selection of
smart home devices and a new website too¬† UK availability and pricing is incoming and hihonor.com is now online ahead of them being on sale. From May 21st, you’ll be able to buy direct from Honor UK for the first time. There’ll be offers too, so keep a look out.

There’s USB-C charging, a rear 13 megapixel camera and an 8 megapixel selfie.
