At this point, Honor has not yet revealed any details about the upcoming phone. But the rumor mill has already begun spinning.

Rumors point to a 5G-capable Dimensity 1000+ chipset with 66W wired fast charging and 55W wireless charging. It is expected to come with a 6.72-inch OLED display with 120Hz refresh rate and an in-display fingerprint scanner.

As seen on the teaser poster, it will have a pill shaped punch hole for the dual selfie cameras. It also appears to have four cameras at the back on a rectangular module with a large sensor for the main shooter.

In any case, we’ll find out soon. More leaks will surely make it online before the launch.
