With around 20 new models, since the beginning of 2020, Honor is clearly amidst a strong announcement year. Between it and Huawei, hardware has been flying all over the place, with various tweaks, rebrands and regional releases.
It seems like the confusion is far from over. A new MXW-AN00 Honor device has popped-up on TENAA, which some have identified as the Honor 30 Lite. We already know that a device with exactly that name is on the horizon. However, as per an earlier TENAA leak, it is associated with the AQM-AL10 model number. The certification photos in both listings looks really similar and also match-up with some exclusive early images of the upcoming phone, we have on hand.
Specs on the MXW-AN00 and AQM-AL10 also fall in line neatly. These include a Dimensity 800, 5G-capable chipset, 6.5-inch, 90Hz, FullHD+ display, 4,000 mAh battery, with around 22W charging and a 48MP, plus 8MP, plus 2MP main camera setup. We aren’t quite sure what to make of the relationship between these two seemingly identical devices. But, that’s hardly anything new for Huawei and Honor’s current lineup. A quick search reveals that both upcoming phones seem to share mostly every aspect with the Huawei Enjoy Z 5G, Huawei Enjoy 20 Pro and the Honor 30 Youth, as well.
Continuing this trend of similar or even outright re-branded hardware, we have the ASK-AL20, also now on TENAA. It is a lower-end device that packs a 6.39-inch, 720p, IPS, 19.5:9 panel, an undisclosed 2GHz octa-core chipset, with DualSIM 4G connectivity, along with either 4GB, plus 64GB or 6GB, plus 128GB of RAM and expandable onboard storage. All of this, alongside a 3,900 mAh battery and a 48MP, plus 8MP, plus 2MP triple-camera setup, packed inside a 159.81 x 76.13 x 8.13 mm, 176-gram body. Available in Aurora Blue, Charm Red, Magic Night Black and Iceland White colors. A pretty complete specs sheet and one closely resembling the Honor 9C. Visually, the two devices look unsurprisingly similar, as well.
Finally, as per a prominent leakster on Weibo, Honor is prepping a V40 model for the second half of 2020. Alongside it, models within brand-new Honor I and Honor C families.
That’s the only information we have on these thus far, but we’re sure an avalanche of new leaks can’t be far behind. We’ll keep you posted.
