Invitation from Huawei shows unveiling of its next flagship at IFA on September 4th
Huawei has sent out invitations for the unveiling of its next flagship model. The event will take place during IFA, in Berlin, on September 4th. According to one published report, the phone will be named the Huawei Ascend Mate 7. That seems a bit odd since the last version of the Ascend Mate to be released was the Huawei Ascend Mate 2 4G. We've already passed along speculation that the Huawei Ascend Mate 3 will be coming in September.

For a moment, let's assume that the number was a mistake lost in translation, and that the Huawei Ascend Mate 3 is getting prepped for a September introduction. According to the invite, it would appear that the next Ascend Mate will have a fingerprint scanner. The phone is expected to come in two models. One will feature a 6 inch 1440 x 2560 QHD display, while the other will have a 6 inch screen with a 1080 x 1920 resolution.

Both models will feature Huawei's own Kirin 920 CPU under the hood. One unit will have 2GB of RAM, while the pricier device will offer 3GB of RAM on board. Both models will have a 13MP camera adorning the rear, while a 5MP camera is expected on front. And both phones will offer LTE, Wi-Fi, NFC and Bluetooth 4.0 connectivity. One model will have Dual SIM Dual standby capability, while both variants shall include Android 4.4 pre-installed, along with Emotion UI 3.0.

Things like pricing and availability should be announced during the September 4th event.

Thanks for the tip!

Well, if the screen size is 7 inches the name would make more sense.

Ascend mate 2 4g. 2+4=6. It makes sense that the next iteration is 7

Why not? More flagships to be unveiled on the same day is a good thing, more exciting.
