The Huawei specs page (see "Memory" section) says that there is supposed to be a "Premium" edition with greater RAM/ROM capacity. However, I'm not aware of any M2 model with the same cell band support as the 802L but with a larger screen.

The 802L was the Taiwan model, at least that is what I was told. And that the 802L is the only one, no ram greater than 2GB
Huawei Japan brought out the 802L with region code C229 in both the Standard (2GB/16GB/silver) and the Premium (3GB/32GB/gold). I have both editions.

Maybe the 802L's greatest presence was in Japan, with the official 802L apparently having been a good seller and with NTT docomo, Japan's biggest cell carrier, having offered the 802L rebranded as the NTT docomo dtab Compact d-02H. It is SIM unlockable in the standard docomo UI, but not all of the features of the phablet are usable in that condition. The d-02H has been successfully rebranded as 802L.

AT&T Mexico offered the 802L simply as the 802L and SIM unlocked. I have it in Premium (3GB/32GB/gold) in its final stock-ROM iteration, M2-802LV100R001C402B009, Android 5.1.1, security patch 2018/03/01, kernel 2018/03/10, and custom version CUSTC484D001. I use it on T-Mobile USA.

Huawei Japan was more progressive with ROM releases, culminating in M2-802LC229B211, Android 6.0, security patch 2018/08/05, kernel 2019/07/04, and custom version CUSTC229D001.

Did you order the Premium from Mexico? Or what store did you order it from?
