HUAWEI might already be preparing the sequel of its clamshell folding phone, the HUAWEI P50 Pocket. After revealing that it's launching the Mate 50 series on 6 September, some images containing a device looking like its next generation of the clamshell folding device got spotted.

Those images come from the Chinese wireless authority. Known only by its 'BAL-AL80' model number, the device is likely the second clamshell foldable from the Chinese tech company. This time, the device could feature two design materials, one with glass and another with leather. They also have a triple camera setup on the rear.

Besides the foldable device, another not-so-interesting device also leaked through the platform. With model number CHA-AL80, the device appears to be a standard mid-ranger (the side-mounted fingerprint reader tells us so). According to the regulator, it has a 3,900mAh battery. Both devices will run HarmonyOS and lack 5G connectivity.
