If this turns out to be true, this will be the first Huawei smartphone to pack the Dual Camera feature on both front and rear panels.

The company is apparently working on a completely refreshed line up, which has been showing up online with code-name, “Rhone.” The reports prevailing online hadn’t provided any clear information on it until now.

Rhone’s primary selling point is going to be its dual camera setup, appearing on both – its front and rear panels. According to a report by Android Soul, the smartphone will fall in the mid-range category as it is expected to be powered by Kirin 659 processor. The handset will be home to a decent 3,240mAh battery. Since Google in August has already rolled out Oreo for use, it is assumed that all of future Huawei smartphones will have this software update onboard.
