Huawei is one of the largest players in the smartphone market these days, as they’re the third-largest smartphone manufacturer in the world at the moment. Huawei has been doing great for quite some time now, the company has managed to sell over 100 million smartphones in 2016 already, they crossed that number a couple of months ago actually. The Huawei Mate 9, Mate 9 Pro and Porsche Design Mate 9 are the company’s latest high-end offerings, but it seems like the company is still not done releasing high-end devices this year, read on.
As most of you know by now, the company had introduced a new battery technology yesterday, the Graphene-Assisted Li-ion batteries. We’ve already talked about this technology, but a Chief Scientist over at Watt Laboratory, a Huawei-owned company, Dr. Li Yangxing, actually revealed something really interesting. Dr. Yangxing confirmed that Huawei plans to introduce a phone with super-quick charging by late December, and considering we’ve been seeing some leaks of a Huawei-branded bezel-less smartphone, this kind of suggests we might see the company’s concept smartphone see the light of day before the end of this year. Xiaomi had recently introduced the Xiaomi Mi MIX, their very own bezel-less phablet which comes with a 91.3% screen-to-body ratio, and ever since then we’ve seen a number of leaks regarding such smartphones from other companies, including both Meizu and Huawei.
We really don’t have all that much info when it comes to Huawei’s concept smartphone, other than the leak which surfaced last month. The leaked image that surfaced showed us a rather sleek-looking smartphone which is said to ship without visible physical cameras, fingerprint sensor and capacitive keys, while its headphone jack is allegedly missing as well. Sounds interesting? Well, it sure is, this essentially means Huawei will introduce some interesting tech along with this phone, presuming the phone actually exists and is coming, of course. You’ll probably be required to use wireless headphones with the device considering that there’s no 3.5mm headphone jack present here, or will be forced to use the Type-C USB port which we presume will be available on the bottom. The fingerprint scanner could be integrated as part of the phone’s display, and interestingly enough, there are no physical keys on this device at all. Seems interesting? Well, it is, we’ll let you know if any new info surfaces.
