An upcoming Huawei smartphone listed as Huawei WAS-LX1A has been spotted online on the Geekbench benchmark database. Many are speculating that the device could be the P10 Lite, succeeding the P9 Lite smartphone from last year.
Going by the Geekbench listing for the device, it will be running on Huawei’s in-house developed Kirin 655 octa-core chipset clocked at 1.71 GHz. The chipset will be paired with 4GB of RAM, which is slowly becoming the norm on upper mid-range smartphones these days. The prototype managed to post a single-core score of 779 points and a multi-core score of 3023 points. While these scores aren’t very impressive when compared some other mid-range smartphones powered by newer octa-core Snapdragon 600-series SoCs, they are in line with what other Huawei handsets powered by the Kirin 655 chipset score on Geekbench.
The smartphone is currently being tested on the Android 7.0 Nougat platform, which confirms the Honor 10 Lite will be shipping with Android Nougat out of the box. While the Huawei P10 and P10 Plus smartphones are expected to make their official debut at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2017 next month, we’re not sure if the Huawei P10 Lite will be announced alongside. Last year, Huawei announced the P9 Lite shortly after announcing the P9 and P9 Plus, so it is possible that the P10 Lite will be announced a few weeks after the P10 and P10 Plus are announced.
