The as of yet unofficial Honor ARE-AL00 has made another appearance on regulatory platform TENAA this time with a detailed list of specs.
The Honor ARE-AL00 is expected to launch as the Honor 8X (or 8S, or Honor 8X Max) and is rumored to use a Snapdragon 660 or 636.
We can now add the rather large screen size of 7.12-inches to the mix of known facts. The ample canvas will have a resolution of 2244x1080 pixels. Powering the phablet will be a 4,900mAh battery. That's somewhat lower than the 6.9" Xiaomi Mi Max 3's, which packs in a 5,500mAh battery, but battery life is always about more than sheer capacity.
The Honor ARE-AL00 will measure 177.57x86.24x8.13mm and weigh 210 grams. It features a dual 16MP+2MP rear camera and an 8MP front camera. Built-in storage is 64GB, expandable by up to 256GB through a microSD card.
Now all that remains is for Huawei to announce the Honor 8X. Given that its regulatory approval process is underway it's can't be long now.
8X Max has a snapdragon processor, 8X has a Kirin Processor
Seems like a great phone but it's interesting that it's carrying a SnapDragon chipset. Huawei usually just puts Kirin ones but this means this phone won't get GPU Turbo, and the update cycle might be a bit problematic.
