CAPE TOWN - Chinese telecommunication giant, Huawei is rumoured to launch a mobile device with 512GB of storage, reports The Verge. 

This comes after the listing of an unknown phone with the model number NEO-AL00 was reportedly seen on Chinese regulatory agency’s website, TENAA last month. 

This amount of storage is significantly larger than that of the iPhone X which offers 256GB.
