It seems like Hisense is planning to release a 'full-screen' smartphone in the near future, at least according to a TENAA listing that popped up. The Hisense HLTE500T surfaced on TENAA quite recently, this listing dates back to December 18, though it has been spotted quite recently. In any case, this smartphone seems to be made out of metal and glass, and it resembles the Redmi 5 and Redmi 5 Plus from the front. Its display sports rounded corners, and the device offers rather thin bezels all around.
All the physical keys are placed on the right-hand side of this smartphone, while the phone sports a dual camera setup on the back, where you will notice its fingerprint scanner as well. Speaking of the phone's back, you will notice that the back side of this device is curved, and that an LED flash is placed back there as well. Now, TENAA claims that this phone will sport a 5.99-inch fullHD+ (2160 x 1080) IPS display, along with 4GB / 6GB of RAM and 64GB / 128GB of native storage. The phone will be fueled by an octa-core processor clocked at 2.2GHz, and its internal storage will be expandable up to 128GB via a microSD card. Android 7.1.1 Nougat came pre-installed on the unit that got tested by TENAA, and chances are that we'll see that version of Android on the final unit as well, though Hisense's custom UI will be implemented on top of it, for sure. TENAA did not release any camera info when it comes to this smartphone, and it seems like the phone will be available in several color variants, TENAA reports that it will come in Ice Gray, Glacial Blue, and Exquisite Gold color options.
A 3,320mAh non-removable battery will also be included in this package, while the phone will measure 158 x 75.12 x 7.5mm, and weigh 170 grams. We do not know if there will be any black bars around the phone's display, or will its bezels be as thin as they seem, considering that the phone's display is not powered on in the provided images, but the company is expected to announce this smartphone soon, so we'll find out in the near future, stay tuned.
