The tragedy of misplacing or losing a mobile phone or some important documents might have occurred with most of us similarly, an unfortunate Honor employee has lost an Honor smartphone prototype in a train, giving the biggest worry to the company. Now, Honor is willing to give 5,000 Euros (roughly Rs 4 lakh) to the person who finds and return the device safely.
The unfortunate event happened on April 22 when the Honor employee was travelling in the ICE 1125 train from Dusseldorf to Munich, Germany. The Huawei sub-brand claimed the loss through a tweet, in which they have also announced the reward amount. The lost prototype device is covered in a grey protective case which covers the rear design along with the camera.
On translating in English, the tweet said, “On Easter, Monday, April 22, 2019, an Honor employee lost an Honor smartphone prototype while travelling on Deutsche Bahn Intercity-Express trip #1125 from Düsseldorf (at 6:06 a.m.) to Munich (at 11:08 a.m.). The prototype is in a grey protective case which conspicuously disguises the camera with a cover.”

Mobile phone manufacturers generally distribute prototype devices amongst their employees for testing before an official launch. These pre-production devices are usually kept covered in cases to keep them from getting leaked.
Honor is set to launch its new Honor 20 series phones on May 21 in London. It is speculated that the lost prototype phone could be one of the Honor 20 phones.
