A new smartphone that has a model number of HBN-AN00 has surfaced on Geekbench benchmarking platform. It can either be a Huawei or Honor device.
However, considering the fact that Honor has recently launched multiple smartphones across different price segments, the HBN-AN00 seems to be an upcoming Huawei Nova 7 series smartphone.
