FCC listing reveals Huawei could bring an entry-level smartphone to the US
A new Huawei smartphone with the model number MYA-L03 appeared in the GFX Bench database and FCC's listings. Its modest spec sheet and removable plastic back suggest an entry-level model headed to the US budget market. It won't be the first time Huawei brings a low-cost device to the US, as anyone who's owned the Huawei Union on Boost Mobile can attest.

Running Android 6.0 Marshmallow, the device is powered by the MediaTek MT6737T SoC which features a quad-core processor clocked to 1.44GHz and is paired with 2GB of RAM. A dual-SIM version will be available as well. The devices are powered by a 2920mAh battery and are compatible with LTE bands 2, 4, 5, and 7. There are also slots for a microSD card to expand internal storage.

It's anyone's guess when these devices will hit retail, but they seem prime candidates for the $150 smartphone club. Possibly even less. Perhaps Huawei will showcase these models at MWC 2017, although most of the attention will inevitably go towards its upcoming P10 line-up of high-end phones.

Huawei only makes entry level devices, they all suck.

Apparently you've never used one. I ran a Mate2 for almost 3 years, and now have a Mate8 for about 3 months. Not one problem. Affordable and dependable.
