New Honor Beta program for the US lets users mould phones that are still in the pipeline

New Honor Beta program for the US lets users mould phones that are still in the pipeline
The Honor 8 is already one of the best unlocked phones money can buy in the US, but Huawei's loosely-affiliated brand is ready to take the relationship with US customers to the next level now, by introducing the Honor Beta program.

The brand has been testing the waters with beta software subscription, for example of the Nougat update for the Honor 8, but the new initiative takes listening to users to a whole different level, with the final aim of becoming the best provider of unlocked handsets in the US by incorporating features that users actually want. For the purpose, anyone can go to the source link below, and sign up as a beta tester. Needless to say, as the program is American-centric, the applicants must be English speakers who reside in the U.S.

Honor then will look at the submissions, pick up winners, and feed them with pre-release experiences all year round. This could include not only, say, testing the beta version of Android 8.0 for the honor 8 and the like, but also feedback and opinion on products currently in market, or in the pipeline with a horizon of a year or two. Thus, the Honor Beta sounds like a wonderful opportunity to participate in new product development of what could become the best unlocked brand in the US. Any takers?

if they want to boost their sales, they should sell theirs through carriers.
