Two new smartphones with model names “MED-AL20” and “MOA-AL20” have just popped up on Chinese certification site TENAA. The country’s press suggests we’re looking at the upcoming Honor Play 9A.
Honor Play 9A Certified in China, coming with a 5000mAh battery
According to the data available on TENAA, the two handsets will come with the same body size. More specifically their dimensions will be 159 x 74 x 9mm. In the certificate we also learn the smartphones will pack an averagely size 6.3-inch FHD display. Additionally, we should find a quite large battery with a real capacity of 4900mAh (the official capacity should be 5000mAh); while the maximum charging power will be 10W.
From previous reports, we also know that the Honor Play 9A will be equipped with a rear fingerprint scanner and water drop screen design at the front.
Now, since Huawei and Honor have announced two launch events for both the Huawei P40 on March 26th and the Honor 30S on March 30th, we still cannot tell for sure at which event the Chinese phone maker will release the Honor Play 9A. That said, everything points towards a launch along with the Honor 30S.
As already confirmed by Honor, the Honor 30S will come with Huawei’s next-generation self-developed 5G chip – the Kirin 820. This chip is Huawei’s second 5G SoC, following the Kirin 990 5G.
The Kirin 820 5G will use a 7nm manufacturing process and it’ll be comprised of Cortex A76 and Cortex G77 cores; while the ISP and NPU have also been fully upgraded. Additionally, thanks to the architecture upgrade, Kirin 820’s GPU performance has been greatly improved compared to previous generation.
