Yesterday, a Honor branded smartphone with a model number of ARE-AL00 had surfaced on TENAA. It had appeared with minimal information such as dimensions, display and battery size. The TENAA listing of ARE-AL00 is now updated with full specifications.
The Honor ARE-AL00 will be a massive smartphone as its TENAA listing has revealed that it measures 177.57 x 86.24 x 8.13mm and it weighs 210 grams. The handset is fitted with a massive display of 7.12 inches that carries support for 2244 x 1080 pixels. The TENAA images of the phone reveal that it features a valley notch like the Oppo F9. The handset is packed with a battery of 4,900 mAh capacity.
The ARE-AL00 smartphone is fueled by 1.8 GHz octa-core processor. Probably, the handset could be fueled by Kirin 710 chipset. The SoC is coupled with 4 GB of RAM. The handset is preloaded with Android 8.1 Oreo and it comes with an internal storage of 64 GB. It also features a microSD card slot. For photography, the smartphone is equipped with 16-megapixel + 2-megapixel rear-mounted dual camera and a front-facing camera of 8-megapixel.
