A few days ago we wrote about an upcoming Huawei smartphone and now a tipster has clued us in on some new details and provided us with exclusive photos and camera sample.
The handset will be part of the Honor line, but our tipster called it "Cherry," which is likely its codename. It will reportedly launch in Russia first at a rumored price between RUB 13,000 and RUB 15,000, that's $225-$260. It will expand to other countries later on.
The phone will be powered by a Kirin 620 chipset - built on a 28nm process, it features an octa-core Cortex-A53 and Mali-450MP4 GPU, 150Mbps LTE connectivity too.
The camera sample is with 7MP resolution, though it looks like it came from a 4,160 x 2,336px image. That was most likely a crop too (or at least 16:9 mode), the width is typical of 13MP sensor. The EXIF info reports an f/2.0 aperture and 1/3.2" sensor.
The battery capacity will be 2,550mAh (matching the Galaxy S6) and according to our source it will last 51 hours of moderate usage, 28 hours if you press it harder and 80 hours for light usage.
Thanks goes to our anonymous tipster for the info and the photos!
