Huawei might announce a new Honor X smartphone on July 22 to take on Xiaomi's Mi4

It looks like Xiaomi isn’t the only major Chinese smartphone maker that’s getting ready to announce a new handset on July 22. Huawei will also host an event on that day, and it seems that it’s going to unveil a new Honor X smartphone then.

Unfortunately, for now there are no details on what features this Honor X will offer. However, since Xiaomi’s upcoming device will be the Mi4 (a high-end smartphone that’s seen as the successor to last year’s Mi3), Huawei might want to counter Xiaomi’s announcement with its own new high-end device.

Of course, Huawei already has a brand new flagship smartphone: the octa-core Honor 6, which went on sale in China a few weeks ago. But we’re looking forward to seeing what the Honor X will brig anyway.

Since the Honor brand is used by Huawei only in China, the new handset will probably be available only there (though this doesn’t mean Huawei can’t make an international version of it). Well, we'll see what happens on July 22.
