Huawei smartphone with 6-inch display, Snapdragon 615 CPU coming soon to AT&T?

We're probably hours away from the reveal of the Mate 9, but Huawei's launch announcement won't end with the launch of its new flagship smartphone. Another Android phone has been recently spotted in the wild, which is expected to arrive in the United States by the end of the year.

The unannounced smartphone appeared at FCC (Federal Communications Commission) not long ago, and it's compatible with AT&T's standard LTE bands, including band 30. Huawei H1611 is likely to be part of AT&T's GoPhone prepaid family, but the information hasn't been confirmed yet.

Huawei H1611 was first spotted months ago at GFXBench, so we know quite a bit about the phone's specs sheet to assume that this is a mid-range smartphone. The device runs Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow operating system right out of the box.

In addition, the H1611 is said to boast a large 6-inch display that supports HD (720p) resolution, which is a bit disappointing. Under the hood, Huawei's unannounced smartphone packs an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 processor clocked at 1.5GHz, which is complemented by 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal memory.

However, the Android phone will only offer 9GB of free storage by default, the rest being taken by the operating system and other software Huawei and AT&T plan to include.

At the back, Huawei H1611 is likely to feature an 8-megapixel photo snapper with LED flash and full HD (1080p) video recording, while in the front there should be a mediocre 2-megapixel selfie camera.

Last but not least, the smartphone will be powered by a non-removable 3,000 mAh battery, and it will feature microSD card slot for memory expansion.

It's unclear when exactly AT&T plans to add the Huawei H1611 to its GoPhone lineup, but this smartphone, even if unannounced yet, doesn't seem to be entirely new.
