Huawei Band 6 (FRA-B19) Appears on EEC and Indonesia Telecom Certifications, Is Huawei Skipping Band 5?

The Huawei Band 6 is certified by EEC, and Indonesia Telecom.


We are already aware of the details that Huawei is preparing for the launch of its flagship smartphones, the Huawei P50, Huawei P50 Pro, and the P50+. These handsets are expected to go official by the end of March if the recent leak is to be believed. Along with these smartphones, the Chinese smartphone maker also seems to be working on the new Huawei Band 6. The reason for this is that the company’s Huawei Band 6 has now appeared on EEC and Indonesia Telecom certification.

Huawei Band 6 Name/Moniker Confirmed by Russian EEC Certification

If we go by the EEC listing, we can see that Huawei Band 6 is mentioned with model number FRA-B19. The same device also is spotted at Indonesian Telecom as well which even carries a model number as FRA-B19. As of now, Huawei is yet to make the Huawei Band 5 official. However, the company has another product in the market named as Honor Band 6 which carries model number ARG-B19. It might be that Huawei is gearing up for another variant of the Honor Band 6, or even we might see the brand launching the Huawei Band 6, by skipping the Huawei Band 5.
