Although Huawei did not reveal what it has in store for us on the 10th of October, there is reason to believe that we will see the unannounced Huawei Honor Play 5X make its official debut. Why? The device was reportedly certified by Chinese authority TENAA, which is the equivalent of the US FCC in the country. The smartphone is expected to be a mid-range device, which is expected to set buyers back around £103.

As for the device’s rumoured specs, past reports claim that the Huawei Honor Play 5X will sport a 5-inch screen with a resolution of 720 x 1280 pixels, which works out to a pixel density of 294 ppi. It is said to rock a 13-megapixel rear-facing camera and a 5-megapixel front-facing camera, which will be ideal for snapping selfies and video chat. It is said to offer 16 GB of internal storage and a microSD card slot for additional storage options. Under the hood is said to be a MediaTek MT6735 SoC, which is a 1.3 GHz quad-core processor and a Mali-T720 GPU, coupled with 2 GB of RAM. It is said to support 4G LTE connectivity. Interestingly, it is said to sport a massive 4,000 mAh battery, which seems to be the reason why the media event has been dubbed “youth playing non-stop.” It is expected to run Android 5.1 (Lollipop) out of the box. It is said to measure 9.7 mm-thick and weigh in at 159 g.

There is a possibility that another device will make its official debut at the event. This device is the Huawei P9, which is the Chinese phone maker’s next flagship. Recent leaked labels have revealed that the device will rock a dual-camera setup with laser auto focus. The leaked labels also reveal that the device will be available in white and gold colour options. Lastly, the labels reveal that there will be an “LTE” version and a “Deluxe” version. Past reports have also revealed that the smartphone will pack Huawei’s Kirin 950 SoC under the hood, which is an octa-core processor that beat Samsung’s Exynos 7420 SoC (processor under the hood of the Samsung Galaxy S6 and the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge) in a past benchmark test.
