A few days ago a mysterious Huawei device code named the ATH-AL00 passed TENAA certification in China. The leaked images shoot during certification hinted that this new device belongs to the Huawei's online only Honor brand. And today the company was seen teasing the launch of a new Honor smartphone on the 10th of this month.
This makes us believe that this is none other than the launch of the mysterious smartphone which was spotted a few days at the Chinese certification agency. Just to recall, the ATH-AL00 is no clique shade smartphone from Huawei. In fact it has something very unique due to its camera module which pops up from the back. The user can slide up the camera module to reveal the front facing snapper which also comes with an LED flash. This innovation has helped Huawei to reduce the size of the top bezel by a big margin without sacrificing a camera flash.
Furthermore rumours hint that the device may come with a latest generation Kirin SoC with a 3 or 4GB of RAM. The device also sports a dedicated shutter button on the side of the device along with a fairly large power key. The large size of the power key might be because the company has bundled in a Fingerprint sensor on it. If so the device may be crowned as the first device to boast of a Fingerprint sensor on the sides.
Going by launch dates, Turing's unbreakable, unhackable waterproof phone might don that hat. But do note that the device hasn't gone on sale yet. In fact it is only up for reservation. Hence Huawei still has a chance to be the first smartphone to don this feather if they officially launch the date for the first sale during the event.
