TENAA leaks reveal an unannounced Honor Note 8 phablet
Official Huawei teasers suggest a 6.6-inch QHD display and a large 4400 mAh internal battery. Nonetheless, TENAA images show no dual rear cameras for the phablet.

With the Honor 8 out of the bag, all eyes are already on Huawei's next offering down the line. A recent TENAA leak suggests that the Chinese manufacturer will likely introduce a phablet version of its Honor 8 smartphone and a couple of official Huawei teasers (shown below) strongly hint at this as well. Accordingly, the supposed Honor Note 8 will carry a Kirin 950 or Kirin 955 SoC with 3 GB RAM and 32 GB of internal storage. At least one other SKU is expected with 4 GB RAM and 64 GB of storage, but MicroSD cards will be supported in either case. If rumors hold true, then the phablet could be sporting a display as large as 6.6-inches and with a resolution of 2560 x 1440 pixels. The teaser, for example, pokes fun at the "small" 6.44-inch display of the competing Xiaomi Mi Max phablet.

Additional features of the rumored phablet include its large 4400 mAh battery, fingerprint sensor, 13 MP rear and 8 MP front cameras, and a USB Type-C connector. The device is not expected to have the dual rear cameras of its Honor 8 or Huawei P9 siblings. Keep in mind that the Honor 8 has yet to even launch, but TENAA leaks have had a reliable track record when it comes to unannounced smartphones.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
