China-based consumer electronics manufacturer is planning to launch two of its devices in the near future. As per the recent reports, two devices codenamed as H1711 and H1711z were spotted on the United States Federal Communications Commission (FCC) receiving certification earlier this week. Moreover, the agency published their screening documentation on Thursday. Interestingly, the above mentioned two products possess same features, just H1711z is most likely to not support Wi-Fi calling (VoWiFi) and Voice over LTE (VoLTE).
Expected Specifications of H1711 and H1711z:
The files released by the FCC reveals much of the details regarding the phones. Both the devices support GSM, UMTS, and LTE frequency bands. Also, H1711 and H1711z will be powered by a battery with a capacity of 3,900mAh and 4,000mAh respectively. The speculations have also been made for the H1711 model to be a phablet.
There will be a microSD card slot also in the device, indicating the further expandable storage. The devices are intended to be carried by AT&T or T-Cell, as Verizon Wi-fi and Sprint rely exclusively on CDMA networks.
In general trend, an OEM asks for six-month confidentiality period when submitting their smartphones, tablets, and other devices with wireless connectivity capabilities to the FCC for certification, but in case of Huawei, looks like it wants to release the phones as soon as possible therefore asked for less than two months of discretion from the agency. Now as the FCC certification has been given, we can hope for the soon arrival of these devices in the market. All other details will be shared as soon as they are made available.
