Huawei teases its next product for a September 4 reveal, 2K 6-inch screen and octa-core CPU rumored
Huawei is teasing something for the fourth of September in a stark black and white invitation that features a prominent "7" as its centerpiece, modelled with an unannounced device's contour. According to our collegues from far away at MyDrivers, the device in question is the Huawei Ascend Mate 7 or D7. 

While we're all waiting for the Huawei Ascend Mate 3, it seems the Chinese giant has acted on its plans to merge the Mate and D-series into one, turning the phablet into its flagship smartphone product. Thus, the upcoming device will be either the Huawei Ascend D3, Huawei Mate 7, or Ascend D7. If the phone appears as any of the latter, we honestly have no clue what could have caused the number jump. Allegedly, it's because the phone will be better than both the iPhone 6 and the Samsung Galaxy S6, and this approach "had people shocked" within the company. 

Is Huawei going a bit ahead of themselves? We'll see soon enough. It's no secret that we're talking of a very exciting device. Allegedly, the phablet will have a 6-inch display and it will be available in two versions - one with a 1080p screen resolution and 2GB of RAM, and one with a 1440p (QHD) resolution screen and 3GB of RAM. They could be powered by an improved version of Huawei's Kirin 920 octa-core processor. Meanwhile, the design is similar to HTC's One Max, although you wouldn't mistake the two for the same phablet.

So, fourth of September it is! Weigh in with your thoughts below.

Yep! Its been a pretty boring Quarter for the Smartphone/Tablet industry. Q4 2014 is gonna start with a Bang with Moto X+1, Note 4, M8 Max, Z3 and most importantly the iPhone 6 being slated for a September release with Nexus 6&8, new iPads set to arrive in October. This quarter will be the best of 2014.

Also Broadwell is coming at the end of Q4 as well There's new Core M CPUs which can be used in fanless devices less than 9 mm thick So you can probably expect some new Surface Pro 4, MacBooks, Ultrabooks and Hybrids in Q4 as well

Samsung S6? It's not even released and people are saying its better? Sorry but Huawei can make the best specs + design all they want but still have the worse user experience.

I doubt this will ever officially be available in the U.S.A. If it is I would strongly consider buying it. But I would be concerned that China as well as the NSA would be collecting my data.

No worries. NSA has deals with the major USA telecoms so the data bandwidth they use to collect your data doesn't count against your monthly limit. For the Chinese version of the NSA, it is probably similar. US telecoms love secret deals and secret cabinets full of spy equipment, and, most of all, secret payoffs.
