If you’ve ever dreamed about your phone having more storage than your laptop, today may feel like déjà vu. According to Chinese agency TENAA’s website, a new smartphone has recently passed its certification that features a whopping 512GB of storage. The brand? Huawei. The phone? We’re not sure yet.
Of course, there’s been plenty of chatter around the upcoming Huawei P20. But so far, there hasn’t been any talk as to whether it will come with 512GB of storage or not. There’s a chance it does and we just don’t know it yet, but that seems unlikely given just how much has leaked out surrounding the device.
What we do feel confident in, however, is the fact that the phone is real. Think of the device passing through TENAA like devices pass through the FCC here in the US. You know they’re real, but you don’t really know what they are until their manufacturer unveils them. That’s the case with today’s mysterious Huawei handset.
For all the spec nerds out there, you may recall last December when Samsung started developing the world’s first phone-ready 512GB SSDs. It remains to be seen whether Huawei will be using these chips, but considering we haven’t really heard of anyone other OEM doing the same, it seems plausible to believe they are.
Whenever this phone gets formally unveiled and/or confirmed, we’ll let you know.
