August 28, 2014

While most of us are anticipating the Note 4, the Xperia Z3 and various new smartwatches that will debut at IFA, let’s not forget that there will be plenty of other interesting mobile announcements from companies like HTC, LG and Huawei. In fact, the latter of these companies is expected to announce its third-gen Ascend Mate at IFA next week.

With this in mind, a few photos of the Huawei Ascend Mate 7 have now leaked to the web, showing off a large handset with thin bezels and what could very well be a fingerprint scanner. Not much else can be derived from the images, but it’s still nice to get a closer look at the phablet ahead of its formal announcement. As for the Mate 7’s specs? According to the rumor mill, the phone is expected to feature a a 1.3GHz Kirin 920 octa-core CPU, 2 or 3GB RAM, a 6.1-inch 1080p display, a 13MP rear cam and a 5MP front cam.

What do you think, based on what we know about the Mate 7, are you at all interested in this device? Conversely, does its massive display size turn you off completely?
