Honor is going to launch a new smartphone, latest listing from TENAA reveals. The device has a model number HJC-AN00 and some specs like the 6.53” screen diagonal and the footprint of the phone were revealed.
At the same time, the highly reputable leakster Digital Chat Station revealed on Weibo some more specs of an incoming Honor phone that looks like the same as in the certification. The Honor phone will come with a Dimensity 800U chipset, 66W fast charging, and a 3,800 mAh battery.
Do all these specs look familiar? That’s because the Huawei nova 8 SE smartphone has the same features, meaning Honor is just borrowing a device from the parent company and slapping its own logo on the back.
The rest of the leaked specs also point to a rebranded nova 8 SE – 60 Hz refresh rate on the OLED panel, Full HD+ resolution, and a 16 MP front-facing camera. There will be four shooters on the back in a 64 MP + 8 MP + 2 MP + 2 MP setup.
While the nova 8 SE costs CNY2,599 ($390/€330), we expect Honor to offer its variation of the phone slightly cheaper, but still in the ballpark of CNY2,300-CNY2,500 (about $350/€295).
