Huawei is the third-leading smartphone vendor in the world partly because of the wide variety of phones it sells in different markets.
In addition to the popular Huawei P and Mate series, the company also sells a host of other devices under different name tags, for instance, Nova, Maimang, Honor and even Enjoy. Apparently, the latter family is getting a refresh in the shape of Huawei Enjoy 8, a successor to the outgoing Enjoy 7 unveiled last year and in fact, it could be unveiled at the upcoming MWC 2018.
Without further ado, here’s everything we know about the rumored Huawei Enjoy 8 specs, features, price, release date and more.
Huawei Enjoy 8 specs and features
- 5.99-inch HD+ 18:9 LCD display
- Octa-core Kirin SoC clocked at 1.4GHz
- 3/4GB RAM and 32/64GB storage
- Dual 13MP + 2MP camera
- 2900mAh battery unit
- Android 8.0 Oreo
A few weeks ago, an unknown Huawei phone with model number LDN-TL00 was cleared by China’s TENAA. At the time, we didn’t have a clue regarding the phone’s name, but according to another listing on the same platform, this is, in fact, the Huawei Enjoy 8.
TENAA has once again certified the Huawei Enjoy 8, but this time there are two variants with model LDN-TL10 and LDN-TL20. Apart from the RAM and storage differences, where the former has 3GB and 32GB while the latter has 4GB and 64GB, everything else remains unchanged.
As per the TENAA listing, these include a 5.99-inch LCD display screen with an 18:9 design and HD+ resolution. Under the hood, there’s a Kirin octa-core processor clocked at 1.4GHz and for the optics, the Enjoy 8 gives you a dual 13MP + 2MP shooter on the back and an 8MP unit for selfies.
The Enjoy 8, like any other Huawei smartphone coming out in the near future, has Android 8.0 Oreo preinstalled out of the box. Keeping it alive will be a decent 2900mAh battery unit. All of this will be accommodated in a body that measures 158.3mm tall, 7.8mm thick and weighs 155 grams.
What’s even more interesting about the Huawei Enjoy 8 is that a host of the specs used are similar to what we recently saw on the Huawei Honor 7C. However, the latter doesn’t have a 64GB storage option, the processor is faster at 1.8GHz and weighs a little heavier at 165 grams. If anything, this weight difference should be down to the material build.
Other features to expect from the Enjoy 8 include a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner, 3.5mm audio jack, microUSB port, Dual-SIM 4G LTE and dual LED flash.
Huawei Enjoy 8 price and release date
- MWC 2018 launch touted
- Price details unknown, but may start at about $230
There are no confirmed details regarding the Huawei Enjoy 8, however, given that the phone has already been cleared by Chinese authorities, it’s an indicator that the launch is imminent.
Upcoming Android Go phones at MWC 2018
We know that Huawei will be at the MWC 2018 show, which is why some reports are pegging the Enjoy 8 launch date to February/March 2018. This is when we’ll get the price and availability details of the phone, but rumors are pointing to a figure in the regions of $230. Only time will tell.
