It seems that Honor has lost a prototype of one of the smartphones it plans to launch over the next few months.
According to what the Chinese manufacturer announced, after a brief trip to Dusseldorf to visit his family during the Easter holidays, on Monday Moritz Scheidl, an employee of the marketing division of Honor, took the train back to Munich. Scheidl claims that during the journey the prototype of the phone he had been given was hidden inside his backpack, but when he returned home and picked it up to load it, he noticed that it was gone.

At this point, it is not clear if the phone has simply fallen out of its backpack or if it has been stolen but in both cases, Honor offers a reward of 5,000 euros to those who recover it. According to the manufacturer, the smartphone was inserted in a gray protective case that obscured the cameras and the rear design. And there are already those who think that this is only a publicity stunt.
The company has already announced that it will be launching its Honor 20 smartphone series on 21st May at a launch event in London. The company is expected to launch three phones — Honor 20, 20 Pro, and Honor 20 Lite.
