Even days after Huawei-owned Honor teased that the company would launch a new phone on October 5, there is no conclusive evidence on what it would ultimately be called.
Earlier this month, official Twitter handle of Honor Global confirmed to a fan that the company would launch Honor 9 in India on October 5, but within days, the company's Indian arm released a poster with the mystery device's design language. It has no resemblance to the Honor 9, as the former seem to have vertically aligned dual-camera, whereas the latter has horizontally aligned shooters, leaving many confused.

Another theory floating in the Internet is that the company might launch the Honor 7X on October 5, which by the way is confirmed to debut in China on October 11.
But the recently leaked images have indicated that Honor 7X too houses a horizontally aligned camera on the back, thus ruling out the possibilities of its debut in India on Thursday.
Several fans, based on the recent teaser poster, have pegged that the Huawei Nova 2I, which made its global debut a few days ago, might debut in India on Thursday, as the device's back-side seem to match the design language as seen on the trailer image.
Flipkart shares some interesting clues before the new Honor phone launch
Honor's official e-commerce partner Flipkart has confirmed that the upcoming device will be available exclusively on its site and claims that it will come with dual-camera setup on both front and the back. Even the Huawei Nova 2I has same camera configuration.
However, the crucial point is that Huawei and Honor, though related, are two different entities similar to Lenovo and Motorola. The former sells K series in the budget and mid-range categories, while the latter sells Moto C, E, G, X and Z series from low-end to top-end segments. Similarly, Huawei and Honor sell devices in different price range.
There is a slight possibility that Honor might retail the Nova 2I with a different moniker in India. We urge our readers to take this report with pinch of salt, as this is just a speculation.
So far, Honor has chosen to remain silent over the speculations and it looks like, we just have to wait one day more to what the company has in store for the fans.
