Chinese phone maker Huawei is known for offering pocket-friendly offerings through its Y-series. Earlier this year, the brand launch a couple of new Y-series smartphones including Huawei Y7 Prime (2018) and Y9 (2019). Recently, a new Y-series device with the model number DUB-LX3, which is rumoured to be the Y7 Prime (2018) was seen on the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) website. Now, the same smartphone has been spotted on the website of TENAA revealing key details and images.
The TENAA listing has three devices with model numbers – DUB-AL20, DUB-TL00, and DUB-AL00, which are speculated to be variants of the Huawei Y7 Prime (2019). The listing has revealed the design and key specifications of the upcoming smartphone. In the image we can see a red Y7 Prime (2019) with glossy polycarbonate back panel with a dual camera module in the top left corner. The selfie camera is located in the centre on top, hinting that the display might come with a waterdrop notch. The Huawei branding on the chin also hints at the presence of a sizeable chin.
