Huawei Honor 7i with sliding camera to be unveiled August 20th?
Last week, we told you about a Huawei Honor handset that was certified by TENAA. At the time, we called the device by its model number, the Huawei ATH-AL00. We also showed you the unique camera on the phone. Located on the back of the unit, the camera sits on a track that allows you to slide it up when you want to take a selfie. When you slide the camera up, it reveals the lens for the front-facing camera and a dual flash.

Today, a Weibo posting reveals teasers for a phone being called the Huawei Honor 7i. One teaser says "You Can Change The Vision Together," hinting that the Honor 7i will be a phone that focuses (no pun intended) on its camera. With that in mind, we believe that the ATH-AL00 is the Huawei Honor 7i.

One of the teasers shows a date of August 20th, which is when we should expect the model to be unveiled, sliding camera and all. A limited number of specs have been leaked, such as the Snapdragon 615 SoC that will reportedly drive the Honor 7i. That means you can expect a big.LITTLE octa-core CPU, with the Adreno 405 GPU inside. 2GB of RAM is said to be on board, with 16GB of internal memory.

We might see two variants of the phone, since the model certified by TENAA had 3GB of RAM. As such, there could be one model with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage, and another one with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal memory. Pricing is rumored to range between $322 USD and $403 USD. We still need more information about the phone's display, battery, and camera.

Huawei has remained busy all summer. On Sunday, we told you that a mystery handset leaked by Evan Blass is actually the Huawei Mate 7 Plus or Huawei Mate 7 mini. That device should also be made official soon.

Thanks for the tip!
