A new Huawei-branded smartphone has just surfaced on TENAA, China’s equivalent to the FCC. This smartphone is fueled by the company’s HiSilicon Kirin SoC, and it comes with a rather solid set of specs. The design of the phone is quite plain, though, the company’s branding is placed below the phone’s display, and the bezels are actually quite thick overall, while the phone’s power / lock and volume rocker keys are placed on the right, as you can see in the provided images.
As most of you know, Huawei will probably unveil more than one Huawei P10 handset this year, the Huawei P10 is a given, while we’ll also see the Huawei P10 Plus and Huawei P10 Lite, if last-gen models are any indication. So, is the certified smartphone one of the company’s upcoming ‘P10’ devices? Well, probably not, but if it is, then this is probably the Huawei P10 Lite, but as we said, this is probably not one of the Huawei P10 smartphones. In any case, the certified smartphone comes with the code name ‘WAS-AL00’, and it is fueled by an octa-core SoC clocked at 2.1GHz, one of Huawei’s HiSilicon Kirin chips, and it also packs in 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage. A single 12-megapixel snapper is placed on the back of this smartphone, according to TENAA, and an 8-megapixel shooter is available on the phone’s front side. This handset packs in a 2,900mAh battery in the inside, and it features a 5.2-inch fullHD (1920 x 1080) display. Android 7.0 Nougat comes out of the box here, and on top of Google’s OS, you’ll get Huawei’s Emotion UI (EMUI) 5.0 skin. This smartphone measures 146.5 x 72 x 7.2mm, while it weighs 146 grams. It is also worth mentioning that the phone’s fingerprint scanner is placed on its back, below the camera.
As you can see, this is the company’s upcoming mid-range smartphone, and even though we still don’t know what will it be called, chances are Huawei will introduce this handset really soon, quite probably in the coming weeks. We’ll have to wait until Huawei officially unveils this handset in order to know its name, and get a more detailed spec sheet, of course.
