Huawei is preparing the launch of its flagship smartphones, Huawei P50, Huawei P50 Pro and P50 +, which will be released by the end of March, there is a possibility that Huawei Band 6 could hit the shelves as well. The leak comes from the EEC and Indonesia Telecom certification, which bodes well for the device.
Huawei Band 6 would also be confirmed by the Russian EEC certification body. The smart band of the Chinese giant is mentioned with the model number FRA-B19. The same device was also spotted at Indonesian Telecom, which also carries the same model number.
The curiosity is evident: as of today, Huawei has not yet formalized the Huawei Band 5. However, the company has another product on the market called Honor Band 6, which carries the model number ARG-B19. It could be that Huawei is preparing for another variant of the Honor Band 6, or it could even be preparing for the launch of the Huawei Band 6, skipping the Huawei Band 5 entirely.

Honor officially announced Honor Band 6 last November, but there are no confirmations regarding the launch of Huawei Band 5 at the moment.
