TENAA leaks reveal an unannounced Honor Note 8 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.
