Reports have emerged that the popular Chinese electronics giant, Huawei, is building a prototype smartphone with 512GB of onboard storage. The knowledge of this fact is rumored to be making waves in the smartphone manufacturing industry especially since Samsung had announced in December 2017 that it was going to bring the world’s first smartphone with 512GB UFS storage.
A month ago Huawei Technologies Co., Ltd. listed a prototype model ‘NEO-AL00’ on TENAA (Chinese Ministry of Industry and Information Technology). Although there was not much to go on at the time, there has been a minor but monumental update in this listing. Not only there is information regarding some changes in the product design (showing evidence of the prototype’s development phase), there’s also a transformation in the memory and storage allocation that, as it stands now, comes to “6GB of RAM + 512GB ROM.”
Huawei is one of the world’s biggest and leading smartphone manufacturer is known for providing high-end enterprise-level data storage solution but they do not have an in-house mobile storage production facility.
Mate Series to make a comeback?
More rumors indicate that this concept device, NEO-AL00, will be launched under the ‘Mate’ series to be called as Huawei Mate X. This news comes after the fact that last month Huawei had registered a trademark in Europe under the smartphone category named “MateX”.
Among other smartphone series soon to be launched is the P20 that will be launched in Paris on March 27, 2018. Also, another variant of P20, the P20 Pro will be introduced on the same day. The latter has been the center of rumors lately because it features a triple-lens camera on the rear end with a 40MP RGB sensor, 20MP monochrome lens, and an 8MP telephoto sensor.
In the same launch event, Huawei will unveil their Porsche Design for Huawei P20 which will be a limited edition.
