Huawei CL00 TENAA_5

Possible Huawei G8 Handset Gets Certified In China

July 21, 2015 - Written By Kristijan Lucic

Huawei has been really active as far as device launches go. This Chinese smartphone OEM has released three devices as part of their flagship P8 line, along with the high-end Honor 7 device, and the mid-range Honor 4C smartphone. The company has also released an Android Wear-powered smartwatch this year, as well as three tablets (2 mid-range ones and a premium one). That being said, Huawei si nowhere near done announcing stuff it seems. The company still has to announce their Mate 8 phablet in the coming months, and another two Huawei-branded smartphones just got certified, read on.

The Huawei CL00 and AL00 have been certified by TENAA in China. If you take a look at the images down below, you’ll notice that both of these phones are made out of metal, and that they sport a rear-facing fingerprint scanner. Unfortunately, this certifications process didn’t really reveal any of the specs these two phones will sport, but we do have their images, as previously mentioned. The devices will sport on-screen buttons, and you’ll notice that Huawei’s logo is imprinted below the display. The two smartphones also sport a dual-LED, dual tone flash next to the camera sensor, and it seems like the camera will protrude a little bit on the back. One of these devices actually sports China Telecom’s (Chinese carrier) logo on the back, so it’s safe to assume that model is actually exclusive to that carrier. The other smartphone only has Huawei’s logo on the back, so it’s probably the unlocked model which won’t be tied to a specific carrier.

So, which devices are we looking at here? Well, judging by their design and the available information, it is possible that we’re looking at the two devices from Huawei’s ‘G’ series. Huawei has released the Ascend G7 back in September 2014, and that was a really solid mid-range offering by the company. Huawei has since then ditched the ‘Ascend’ branding, so if these two devices are actually a part of the company’s ‘G’ series, it is very likely they’ll both be named Huawei G8. We’re only guessing here, of course, but we’ll find out soon enough, it is possible that Huawei intends to release this handset / these handsets on July 30th.
