Huawei announces Oct. 10 event, budget phone expected

Huawei helped launch the most powerful Nexus phone ever last week, but the company has plenty more in the pipeline. Next up it looks like the Chinese firm will launch its own budget handset at an event this Saturday, October 10 in Beijing.

It’s unclear what the event will focus on, though recent filings from the company may offer some details. A Huawei device called the Honor Play 5X just passed through the TENAA (China’s equivalent of the FCC), suggesting it could be next in line to launch. The device apparently packs an impressive 4000mAh battery, along with a 5-inch 720p display, a MediaTek chip, 2GB of RAM and 16GB of expandable storage for around $150.

Huawei could go also for something more high-end with the rumored P9. The device recently leaked with a pair of rear-facing cameras. It could also pack the company’s new Kirin 950 processor and come in white or gold.

Either way we won’t have to wait long to find out. Huawei’s announcement is just five days away, though whatever the company unveils will probably be limited to China at first.
