New HUAWEI handset images leak ahead of IFA announcement
Evan Blass (@evleaks) is back for one of his now-rare appearances, and this time the leakster is giving us a bit of information on what could be HUAWEI’s upcoming large-screen smartphone, as well as an image. Let’s take a look at it!
As you can see, this is a large-screen smartphone that looks to be the successor to the HUAWEI Ascend Mate series. It’s not yet verified if this is the branding the device will be released under, though. In fact, not much is revealed about this mysterious smartphone. All Evan Blass could tell us is that the device will be launching at IFA 2015, on September 2nd.
At first it was believed this smartphone would be a part of the D-series and feature Force Touch, but Blass later confirmed neither bits of information were correct, leaving us in the dark.
Followup: I’m told that this is not a D-series — which is dead — and that the force touch feature has been pulled from this model.— Evan Blass (@evleaks) August 8, 2015
What we can capture from the image is that the new HUAWEI handset will come with a sizable display, a fingerprint reader on the back and what looks to be a full metal body. We had actually seen a leaked video of this phone before, but we couldn’t confirm its validity. I mean, even the branding in the back was off, but now that this image is around we can see a huge resemblance.
Maybe the weird brand in the video is just being kept as a place-holder, something HUAWEI has been known to do in the past. Just remember all this information is unofficial, so don’t hold your breath on the image, the video or any of this information just yet.
We are sure more leaks and rumors will show up before IFA, so keep it tuned to the Android Authority home page for more details to come. Also, you can be sure we will be in Berlin covering all the goodies, so you will hear from us as soon as this phone goes official (if it does).
