Mystery Huawei phone turns out to be the Huawei Mate 7 mini or Huawei Mate 7 Plus

Mystery Huawei phone turns out to be the Huawei Mate 7 mini or Huawei Mate 7 Plus
The other day, Evan Blass tweeted the image of an unknown Huawei handset, revealing that it would be unveiled September 2nd at IFA. Today, Chinese media are calling the phone with the model number CRR-UL00 either the Huawei Mate 7 Plus, or the Huawei Mate 7 mini. Thanks to a trip through the AnTuTu benchmark site, we can tell you that the device will feature a 4.7-inch screen carrying a 1080 x 1920 resolution. That works out to a pixel density of 469ppi.

Additionally, the handset will be powered by a Kirin SoC with an octa-core CPU and the Mali-T624 GPU. The phone will include 3GB of RAM. Above a rear mounted fingerprint scanner will be a 13MP camera employing the Sony IMX278 sensor. Android 5.1.1 will be pre-installed on the unit.

The Huawei Mate 7 mini, or Plus, will have an all-metal build. According to serial tipster Blass, the device was originally going to include Force Touch, although that has since been pulled. Interestingly, last month we told you that the Huawei Mate 7 Plus would be unveiled at IFC on September 2nd and that the Huawei Mate 8 would be delayed until next year. There now seems to be some truth behind that rumor.

Thanks for the tip!
