A new Huawei phone with model number MAR-AL00 has received approval from China’s Compulsory Certificate (3C) authority.
Since the charger that will arrive with mysterious MAR-AL00 carries support for 18W charging, it appears that it could be an upper mid-range phone from the company.
The MAR-AL00 model number has been spotted for the first time. The 3C listing of the phone reveals that its box package will include HW-090200CH0 charger. The charger carries support for 5V/2A (10W) and 9V/2A (18W) charging rates which indicates that the MAR-AL00 will carry support for fast charging.
Some of the Huawei phones such as Mate 20 Lite, P20 Lite (Nova 3e) and Nova 4 also come with the same HW-090200CH0 charger.
The Mate 20 Lite is powered by 12 nm Kirin 710 chipset whereas the P20 Lite features the older Kirin 659 SoC. The Nova 3 and newly unveiled Nova 4 phones are fueled by the 10 nm Kirin 970 chipset.
Hence, it is difficult to confirm whether the Kirin 710 chipset or the Kirin 970 or some other processor. In the coming weeks, the smartphone will appear on the database of TENAA telecom authority of China through which key details will be revealed.

In Vietnam, the handset carries a price tag of around $167.
