Huawei released its first smartphone with a punch-hole display in China last month, dubbed Nova 4. The Chinese manufacturer also expanded its budget smartphone lineup earlier this month with the introduction of Y7 Pro (2019). It now appears the company may soon launch another new mid-range smartphone. An upcoming Huawei smartphone bearing the model number MAR-AL00 has been certified by Chinese certification agency 3C.
Huawei MAR-AL00 Could be an Upcoming Mid-Range Smartphone
This is actually the first time that the MAR-AL00 model number has made an appearance online. As most of you may be aware, 3C certifications never reveal any key hardware specifications of the certified devices. Apart from revealing the smartphone’s model number, the 3C certification tells us the smartphone will be shipped with the HW-090200CHO power adapter in the box. The same power adapter is bundled with the Mate 20 Lite and Nova 3e smartphones. It supports 5V/2A or 9V/2A fast charging support. Unfortunately, no other information is available regarding the upcoming Huawei smartphone currently. We will need to wait for the smartphone to appear on other certification agencies in China to find out more about its hardware specifications and key features. Since the smartphone has been certified by 3C, it will probably not take very long for the smartphone to be certified by TENAA. Unlike 3C and other Chinese certification agencies, TENAA lists all the key specifications of certified devices on its website.
Going by the recent design trends adopted by Huawei, the MAR-AL00 could feature a punch hole display similar to the Nova 4. We can also expect to see an impressive dual-camera setup at the rear and an AI selfie camera on the front. Under the hood, Huawei’s upcoming mid-ranger could be powered by a Kirin 710 or a Kirin 970 chipset. On the software front, we expect it to run Android 9.0 Pie-based EMUI 9.0 out of the box.
