Huawei Ascend Mate 7 leaks out in its full metallic glory, boasting thin bezels

Days before its announcement, Huawei's next flagship phablet, the Ascend Mate 7, has leaked in full bloom for the first time. The myth about its thin bezels is evidently confirmed, judging from the front picture, and the top and bottom ones aren't too wide either. Still, at the rumored  6.1-inch display with a resolution of 1920 x 1080, the Huawei Ascend Mate 7 will undoubtedly be another gigantic handset in the era of giant phones.

The phablet was previously spotted in AnTuTu’s database as well, and as far as the hardware specifications go, it appears that the handset will sport Huawei's homegrown Kirin 920 octa-core processor, clocked at 1.3 GHz, an ARM Mali-T625 MP4 graphics chip, and 2/3 GB of RAM, depending on the version. The main camera should have a resolution of 13 MP, whereas the front-facing sensor is a more selfie-oriented 5 MP unit. The phone apparently has something like a finger scanner on the back, and is wrapped in a metallic chassis, or at least the rear cover seems made out of metal. 

Given Huawei's track record with the Mate series, we wouldn't be surprised to see an enormous battery inside, too, making it one of the longest lasting phablets out there. The Mate 2 currently takes the top spot in our battery life tests, managing to endure more than 11 hours of screen-on time - a very impressive achievement which would hopefully get replicated in the Mate 7, too. In any case, we'll be covering Huawei's September 4th event live at the IFA expo in Berlin, and will relay to you all the phone's characteristics as they happen.

I'm not really into monster sized phones/"phablets", but if you release such a huge device then please dear OEMs make sure to take advantage of that big display like Samsung does it with the Note Series. Split-screen, multi-windows...I want to see an phablet optimized UX.

The bezel width measured from the edge of the illumination to the outer edge of the phone on the Ascend Mate 2 is 1/2 of a cemtimeter or just under 2 tenths of a inch. The Ascend Mate 7 would most likely be the same.

This is a brazen HTC One Max ripoff. How do they get away with appropriating designs from other OEMs?

It's an illusion. The screen actually is smaller than the glass.

Dude seriously now just stop it already. This smartphone looks nice (although rather unoriginal for international standards) and if it's really good people will buy it regardless. Heck, I was thinking I might give Huawei a shot but upon seeing your post I immediately said forget it.
