Huawei sub-brand launched the Honor 8X Max last month, in September. The smartphone marked the debut of the waterdrop notch from the company. Now, the company is gearing up to launch the Huawei Mate 20, which will also feature the same waterdrop notch. Besides the Mate 20 series, a new Huawei smartphone has become the topic of the discussion. The official renders of a handset called the Huawei Enjoy Max have surfaced online and it could very well launch before the Mate series.
Huawei Enjoy Max Could be Re-Branded 8X Max with Better Processor
The photos posted by American tech blogger, Evan Blass on Twitter show the device from multiple angles. The pictures also reveal all the color variants of the device. The new device comes with a Huawei branding, but it is not anything we haven’t seen before. The photos show a leather finishing on the Huawei Enjoy Max and the device features the same screen and design.
If you ignore the minor tweaks in the looks and the new name, Huawei Enjoy Max is a re-branded Honor 8X Max. In fact, the smartphones share the same specifications except for the processors, which is powerful in the Huawei Enjoy Max. The upcoming smartphone is reportedly powered by a Snapdragon 670.
Huawei Enjoy Max on TEENA Listing
The two variants of the Huawei Enjoy Max under the model numbers ARS-AL00 and ARS-TL00 appeared on certification platform TEENA listing last month. The images and the specifications of the device had a striking resemblance to the Honor 8X Max. According to the TEENA listing, the Huawei ARS-TL00 measures 177.57 x 86.24 x 8.48 and features a huge screen of 7.12 inches. The device is slightly thicker than the Honor 8X Max.
