After unveiling the Honor 8 smartphone earlier this month, seems like the Huawei’s sub-brand, Honor is working upon a Xiaomi Max smartphone competitor which would have a huge 6.6 inch display.
The device with model number EDI-AL10 has been spotted on the website of Chinese certification agency, TENAA. The device is expected to be called as Honor Note 8.
Huawei has recently released a couple of teasers for the upcoming Honor Note 8 on its official Weibo account as per which the smartphone will have a 2K (QHD) display.
As per the TENAA listing, the Honor Note 8 has a 6.6-inch quad HD display with 1440 x 2560 resolution, a 2.5 GHz octa-core processor and 4GB RAM. It offers 64GB of internal storage, 128GB expandable storage via a micro SD card, a 13 megapixel rear camera, an 8 megapixel front facing camera and a huge 4,400 mAh battery. Honor Note 8 comes with fingerprint sensor on the rear and a full metal body.
The phone runs on Android 6.0 Marshmallow operating system with EMIU 4.1 running on top. Connectivity options of the device are expected to include dual SIM, 4G-LTE with VoLTE, Bluetooth, WiFi, GPS/A-GPS and a micro USB 2.0 port. The phone is 178.8 mm tall, 90.9 mm wide and 7.18 mm thin and it weighs 219 grams, according to the TENAA listing.
Huawei has not revealed anything about the launch of the handset, but now that it has passed through TENAA, and Huawei has already been teasing the device, there’s a possibility that the launch of the handset is nearby.
Xiaomi had earlier launched Xiaomi Mi Max with a humangous 6.44 inch display screen for Rs 14,999 with 3GB RAM in India.
