Honor lost a prototype phone and is offering $5600 to whoever returns it
Huawei sub-brand Honor, which will be presenting the Honor 20 series in London on May 21st, has been doing just this lately. But as reported today in local media, one of the company’s prototypes has gone missing in Germany.
Following a short trip to Dusseldorf to visit his family over the Easter Holidays, yesterday Honor marketing employee Moritz Scheidl caught the train back to Munich. Throughout the journey, Scheidl claims that the prototype phone he was give was tucked away inside his backpack. But as he arrived back home and went to pull out the device to charge it, he realized it was gone.

Reacting to the news, a number of fans accused the Chinese company of “cheap” marketing. Honor, however, is adamant that this isn’t a publicity stunt of any kind.
