Huawei Ascend Mate 7 bares its big screen, thin bezels in leaked photos


IFA is going to be big. We already expect to see some hot new hardware from Samsung, Sony and others, and now we’ve gotten a peek at what the folks at Huawei will have on offer.

Photos of the Huawei Ascend Mate 7 have leaked out on Chinese social network Weibo. The images show a large device with some pretty slim side bezels, a squircle camera sensor and what looks to be a fingerprint reader.

Huawei hasn’t made any official announcements regarding the Ascend Mate 7, but the rumor mill suggests that it could feature an octa-core Kirin 920 processor, 13-megapixel camera and 6-inch 1080p display. To compare, the Ascend Mate2 features a larger (6.1-inch) but lower-res (720p) screen.

Most of those features are still a rumor, but the fingerprint scanner seems like a pretty safe bet. Huawei has posted a new video teaser for its IFA announcement that includes several references to “Mate” and “7” and shows a fingerprint near the end. You can check the full clip out below.

If the Ascend Mate 7’s leaked design and specs hold true, will you be interested in it?

    I liked the Mate 2 very good procesor + 720p screen + huge battery combo, more fluent experience and way longer lasting juice than 1080p

      Galaxy Note 4 bitch slaps this so easily it’s comical. Everyone wants to get into the phablet game but ONLY ONE is and will always be the leader.

        Thank you, Richard, for stating the obvious. Yes “only one” can be the leader. I can guarantee you, it won’t be Samsung forever. Or have you forgotten just a few years ago when you were saying HTC would “always be on top”?
