Huawei C199 with metallic body and Kirin 920 chip caught at Chinese equivalent of the FCC

Huawei C199

Huawei is gearing towards launching another high-end device later this year. Marked as C199, this unit will come in a metallic body while rocking Huawei’s own Kirin 920 chip. Said SoC packs four fast Cortex-A15 cores along with four power-efficient Cortex-A7 cores.

Rest of the specs include a 5.5-inch full HD screen, 2GB of RAM, at least 16GB of internal storage (we assume), and other “usual for Android” bells and whistles.

Now, we’ve no idea when exactly will the Chinese firm officially launch this device, but we do know it has been cleared by TEENA, which is China’s equivalent of the FCC. So it’s definitely heading to Huawei’s own turf, where — according to GSMdome — the C199 will go for an equivalent of $322.

At the moment, we’ve no idea whether this unit will also be available in the Western hemisphere. Chances are Huawei will want to use the fancy look and feel of the C199 to lure customers in Europe and North America, where the phone may be known under a new name. The C199 is an everything but easy to remember name, don’t you think?
